Thank you for using the Genesis Framework by StudioPress and selecting the Outreach theme. Following are the instructions for setting up your site to resemble the Outreach theme demo.
If you have any trouble, please fill out the contact form for assistance.
You may wish to have the Outreach theme demo open, for reference, while setting up your theme. The setup documentation for this theme has been broken down into the following sections:
This theme also shows a blog layout on the front page until and unless home widgets are placed in the home widgets areas. Under Settings -> Reading, please make sure to select “Your latest posts.”
See Importing the demo content if you wish to set up the theme with the images, pages and posts from the demo.
Settings for the color schemes and page layouts are under the Genesis -> Settings menu.
How to Set Up the Nav Right menu
This theme makes use of additional navigation to the right of the header. Create a menu under Appearance -> Menus. Do not pick a theme location for this menu.
Visit Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the custom menu widget to the Header right widget area. Choose the menu you created from the drop-down.
How to Set Up the Slider
Install the Genesis Responsive Slider plugin. You can install this from the inside of WordPRess by visiting Plugins -> Add new and searching for Genesis Responsive slider. Click the Install Now link and activate the plugin.
Go to Genesis -> Slider and fill in the settings as follows:
Drag the slider widget to the Home Featured widget area.
Make sure you have created a post or page for each slide. Each post or page must have an image uploaded to that post or page. In our demo, we used images that are 1040 by 400.
Set up the slider settings before you upload images so they will be sized correctly.
How to Set up the Home Widget Areas
Just under the slider on the home page, there are 4 widget areas called Home #1 2 3 and 4. We used a Featured Page widget in each, set up as follows:
How to Set Up the Sub-Footer and Footer widgets
There are two footer widget areas in this theme that show on all pages and posts.
Sub footer left contains the Genesis latest Tweets widget. Sub footer right contains a text widget.
For the remaining footer widgets, we used text widgets and the Enews and Updates widget.
Congratulations! You are now ready to begin adding content and personal touches to your new Outreach and Genesis powered website. If you run into any problems along the way or have questions, please fill out the contact form and let us know how we can help.
