Dent-All - Content Managment detailed instructions.
Setting up Content Pages and Posts
All pages can be created as simple content pages or built by means of Visual Composer page builder. You will need to first set up the page and then add and set up content blocks. Just add a row and add the modules to row from the Visual Composer dashboard.
Now you can choose how to compose your template. Add Content modules, Testimonials, etc. You have everything to realize your imagination.
We have also included extension packages for Visual Composer. You can use them free.
Just pick the module you like and add it to the row. Then you can edit it.
You can also edit the row background, add video or parallax images to the background. Just click on Row edit icon and you will see the options & features, which are available for this row.
Custom added shortcodes in our theme are on a separate tab:
Besides this, each page contains these options which include header color or background image, title fonts and colors, breadcrumbs and button settings:
The Blog page is a usual blog, formed from the posts which belong to categories created by you, which have tags and featured images that show in the post listings on the blog page. The blog page can have the sidebar on the left, right or no sidebar, and the contents of the sidebar, as described above, are set under the Appearance > Widgets. Blogs can be posted by someone who has the access to the backend of the site with admin or author role. Anyway that person will be able to log into the WordPress panel and have a user profile.
Default blog layout is grid layout and once you set up an empty page in the theme setting where it is said blog, it will show posts in grid layout.
Galleries are created as a standard page using Image Carousel shortcode in Visual Composer. Here you create just single gallery photo.

If you mark the Service Price as Featured – it will be displayed on the homepage Pricelist – Services Tabs. While adding a Service Price please associate it with the Post Category on the right hand side.
For the Service you need to create a Service page to associate the Price with the Service. Go to Services:
