Setting up the Blog

To create a dedicated blog page you need to create a new page, it doesn’t need any content in it, as you would the portfolio page documented above. Then assign the “Blog” page template to that page. Once you’ve done that you can navigate the “Appearance > Menus” page and add a menu item to your navigation so visitors can easily access the page.

Setting up the Mini-Features

Mini-features can be used to highlight your business, or website’s key features. These will then appear under your homepage slider as you can see on our demo.

To add Mini-Features just navigate to “Mini-Features > Add New”. Give your mini feature a title, some content, to be displayed if a user navigates directly to that mini-feature page itself, a mini-feature excerpt and icon (if you so desire).
