I am having major difficulties setting up this theme on my wordpress site. I can’t seem to get the slider to work, the dropdown on the top menu doesn’t work, and the sidebar widgets don’t show. I have followed the documentation and I am still unclear on what to do. The documentation still seems quite limited and is not addressing that problems that I am having. I was hoping that I could get my website up and running fairly quickly and now am left hanging.
Could someone please help me to get this theme up and running or unfortunately I will have to ask for a refund.
1) You can set up the menus via admin panel (Appearance > Menus). Once your there, simply create 2 menus and call the first one “First” and the other menu “Second”.
Then, whatever items you add to the first menu, shows up on the first menu bar on the site, and the items on the menu called Second, show in the second menu bar. A tutorial can be found here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/i-can%e2%80%99t-create-a-custom-menu-the-menu-behaves-weird
2) The slider shows featured images of posts. Click on “Upload” => Pick image => Use as featured image” on the post/page editor page. You need to set featured image for all posts which will display in the slider. You can change the slider category in the wp admin panel ( Newscast Options > Mainpage Options).
3) You can add your widget (Appearance > Widgets) into the predefined widget areas (Display Everywhere, etc.)
