Adding Pages

The process of adding pages is quite similar to adding posts:

1. Go to Pages > Add New

2. Enter a title and some content.

3. Select a page template or leave the default (more on this in the Page Template article).

4. Setup the page header. Each page can be plain, without any header, or it can feature a cool parallax header with an image and some text. So if you want this cool feature, fill up the settings you see there.

5. Write a few words excerpt (it is good for search results and SEO to have an excerpt, no matter what kind of content do you have in your page).

6. Hit “Publish” and you’re all done.

Page Templates

As you might already noticed, there are a few Page Templates available for you to use. Each template will configure your page to look and act in a different way.

1. Default Template

This is the default template and it outputs exactly the content of the page, without any modifications.

2. Blog

This page outputs all the posts that you have in your blog. It uses a the grid and it accepts no content, since the content will be automatically taken from the database.

3. Contact

This one has a map available in it. Note that the content (contact form) still needs to be added separately, but this page template is the starting point for any contact page. The map is configured in the Page Options and each field is properly detailed, so you shouldn’t have any issues with this.

4. Fullscreen Slider

This page acts just like a gallery post type slider, being a full screen swiping slider which can be used for showcasing or as an alternate homepage. It has three captions which support full HTML code (2.3.7 for more info).

5. Gallery / Portfolio

This page acts just like the blog, the only difference being that it displays all of the gallery / portfolio projects. The style of these pages can be set in the Theme Customizer (as explained above) and just like the blog page, these do not allow for any extra content.

6. Single Gallery

This is a gallery page, similar with the portfolios, the only difference being in the fact that it doesn’t actually contain a bunch of projects, but some images only. Each thumbnail will open the large version of the image, with no extra fancy stuff. You can select the thumbnails ration in this one.

7. Single Image

This is a page which will display a single fullscreen image on your site and it could be useful for alternate homepages. You have no content in it, however, there are the Page Options which offer you the possibility to add a background (choose a large image), and three separate HTML objects. These HTML objects will be animated one by one into the page and will be always horizontally centered on the page. You can go crazy with custom text, colors, whatever you want, even images, but remember that images will take some time to load, so if you add a large image, it might not be loaded before the animation starts.

8. Single Video

Just like the Single Image page template, but with a video as a fullscreen background. It also features the three optional HTML objects.
