How To

Theme Overview

Below is an image explaining what theme option’s control what sections of the home page. Please note widgetized zones Sidebar 1 and Sidebar 2 are available on all pages, not posts or archives.


Setting up the blog

The idea behind Aperture was that it would be used by corporates to showcase their products, whilst also offering a blog that is not being displayed on the front page. Even though you will be able to add blog posts as normal, the blog requires a bit of setup first.

To add a blog, go to your options panel in the Layout section and select a category that will act as your blog.

Setup your blog category in theme options

Adding Images To Posts

Many of the different template pages within Aperture, uses an embedded image within a post when displaying the post to the user. This means that you need to add a custom image to a post should you wish to display the image with the post. If you decline to add an image to a post, it will not be displayed and won’t disrupt the theme in any way.


Custom Aperture Widgets

Aperture includes a bunch of different widgetized spaces, along with custom, Aperture-specific widgets to allow you more customisation options than ever before. Here’s a brief run-down of both the widget areas and custom widgets:

Widgetized Spaces

There are 6 different widgetized spaces throughout the Aperture template:

Note: You will need to go to Design > Widgets to add any widgets to these spaces. By default the theme will not display anything in these spaces, until you add your own widgets.
