The Buro theme comes with support for 2 menus. The Primary Menu is located to the right of your theme header. The Top Menu will appear in a strip across the top of the site. You can activate the top menu under “Appearance > Menus”. See documentation on “Menus” for more info.

Responsive Design

Buro Is Responsive.

Buro is a responsive theme, this is a term that’s been coined that means the theme responds to most any device and screen size it’s viewed on. Yes, this means that the theme works and pretty much looks just the same as it does on your desktop and smartphone. Instead of serving up separate sites for devices, this theme adapts and tries its best to provide your device or screen size with the best experience it can.

Setting up the Featured Slider

The unique home page featured slider can be used to display noteworthy content and has it’s own custom post type called “Slides” designated to it. The slider uses custom post images for the slide image, and then shows the the title and content below the slide image.

The slider theme options.

The Buro homepage slider pulls the custom “slides” post type. The number of slides is set under the “Homepage Slider” theme option’s panel. You can set the animation and fade speed, as well as enable touchswipe for devices like iPads under the theme options.

Adding a slide

To add a slide simply follow these steps:

  1. Go to Slides > Add New.
  2. Type a title for the slide and complete all of the post’s body content.
  3. Add an “Image” in the Custom Settings panel if you wish it to appear as the background image.
  4. Publish the slide.

Setting up the Blog

To create a dedicated blog page you need to create a new page, it doesn’t need any content in it, as you would the portfolio page documented above. Then assign the “Blog” page template to that page. Once you’ve done that you can navigate the “Appearance > Menus” page and add a menu item to your navigation so visitors can easily access the page.
