An introduction to the PostMagazine theme

Customizing Your Theme

As I will keep saying this for every theme I release, there is one important element to consider when setting up your theme and website, is customization. If you plan to modify the theme at some point in time, such as modifying a theme template, or perhaps you want to add something more, I strongly recommend using a child theme. I may create a tutorial about child themes, but the WordPress.org website has a Child Theme tutorial that you can follow.

Ultimately, using a child theme will prevent you from losing any changes you make whenever this theme has an update. Making changes to the theme’s files will result in being overwritten when you update, which is why using a child theme is critical.

Theme Info Page

When you are in your site’s admin area, you have a theme information page available to you with quick links to resources and support. Go to the Appearance menu group and look for the “About PostMagazine” link.

You will see a page with tabs, each containing valuable information for your reference.

One in particular is the CHANGELOG tab which outlines what changes were made in the current and previous versions of this theme. 

How to Begin

After you have installed the theme, the fun begins, so I recommend exploring the customizer (found under the Appearance menu group) and all of its settings. From there, start planning out your website (if new), otherwise start adjusting your site to the new theme and features.

Need More Tutorials or Support?

If you discover a setup tutorial needs updating, is confusing, or you noticed that there is one missing for a particular feature of this theme, feel free to post your request to the theme’s support forum and we will be happy to help out. If we need to add more tutorials, we will get right on that.

Overall, if you are happy with this theme, we would love to say thank you for your 5-star rating and review (opens in a new window).
