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. You can set a page as a Blog posts archive page via Appearance -> Customize -> Site Settings -> Static Front 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. Other settings of this archive page you can setup via Appearance -> Customize -> Blog:
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.
There is a custom post type to describe your Events via any element visual composer offers you. You can create them under Events menu.
Also you can see a list of the joined people to your Events and their information via Events -> All Members menu.
There is a Events Category taxonomy in order to separate your Events by category. You can add/modify them under Events -> Categories.
Also you can add Events as for any page using custom STM Events VC element. This module also has its own settings
In order that you could create testimonials in one place and then use all over the site, just inserting a VC element, we have created custom posts.
Each testimonial is a simple post:
You need to identifying Your IPN Listener to PayPal https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/ipn/integration-guide/IPNSetup/#id089EG030E5Z:
URL should be: http://[your_domain]/?stm_check_donation_ipn=1
You can set up Donation settings and PayPal API credentials under Appearance > STM Donation Options section.
Donations are created as another custom post type called Testimonials. It has Categories that can be ordered as needed and All Donors list. Here you create just single donation.
So basically, you create an individual post describing for each work in your Cases archive. After that you go to the Donations -> Add new.
You can add an Image, Title and Category(es) for each Work post. Besides this you need to add Donation information under Information tab:
On the new page you can insert STM Donations shortcode from Visual Composer and setup its settings.
Courses and Teachers pages
You can add Courses and Teachers under respectively menus and set a Teacher for your Course in a Course Details section:
For your Teachers you can add additional information like Positions, Social links and E-mail under Details section. All other data which will be available on Frontend should be added in the Content.
Also you can display your teachers grid via adding Teachers Grid VC element in a page and set its options up:
You can add Media elements like a single post each of them under Media Gallery:
Besides Title and Images you can set Gallery Format, Category(es), Description, Link or Embed code for each gallery post. Also it’s possible to set a post as a Featured. For displaying your Media Gallery you can use one of the extra VC Modules in any page.
Meals – is one of the custom post types in the theme.
In order to display them in your site you need to create posts under Meals menu.
Here you can set all needed information like Title, Description, Featured image for your Meal. Beides this you can add Weekdays and Meal Time for Meals under Meals -> Weekdays & Meals -> Meal Time.
At least you can add STm Meal shortvode in your page and setup it in order to display your Meals in your site.
