Header image and content
First add a header image. In your Dashboard go to Appearance → Customize → Header Images. Add the image you want to display. You can add more than one and randomize them. Header image size is 2000x1000px.
The site tagline (slogan) will display in the left side of the screen.
You can add some text on top of the header image. In your Dashboard go to Appearance → Widgets and add a text widget or any other widget type to the Top Widget location.
In the bottom of the header add a menu to Front Menu location as explained above.
Configuring the front page
In the front page below the header image, this theme will display the latest posts by default. You can assign a static page to display in front instead of the latest posts. Learn how to display a static page in front →
This way you can have the Home Page template or another static page display in front instead of the latest posts. If you decide to go with a static page other than the Home Page template, we suggest you use the Plain Page template.
Home page template
This theme comes with a custom made template to create an attractive and very functional home page, just like in our demo.

At the top of the Home Page template there is a widget location named Front Widget. In your Dashboard go to Appearance → Widgets and add a text widget (first) and an image widget (second) type to this location. Learn how to add widgets →
To add a call to action button to the text widget like in our demo use this html code
<a class="btn" href="url goes here">Read More</a>
The image you add to the image widget should be square in order to achieve the circle effect.
Below the Front Widget the theme will display the latest three posts from your blog. To change the title of section go to Appearance → Customize → Theme Options and you will see an option to edit the title.
In this section you can display logos of your partners or clients. First add a text widget to the Partners Widget location. Learn how to add widgets →
To add a partner or client in your Dashboard go to Partners → Add New.
Add the partner (client) name so you recognize it, the logo and if you choose to add the partner website you can add also the url to the partner website or any other section of your website.
We called this section Services but you can use it for anything really. This section contains a widget location called Services Widget. In our demo we have added a text widget (first) and Navigation menu widget (second). So you can point your visitors to important sections of your website.
To add a background image in your Dashboard go to Appearance → Customize → Theme Options and Upload a background image for the services section. Suggested image size is 2000x1000px.
In the bottom of the Home Page template above the footer, there is another widget location named Bottom Widget. Here you can add a company video or image using the Video or Image widgets. Below that add another text widget with some description. Learn how to add widgets →
