How Theme Integration Works
The PhotoShelter configurator takes a snapshot of your Graph Paper Press theme and automatically generates a new custom theme for all your PhotoShelter web pages. It's important that you configure your Theme Options, Menus and Widgets inside WordPress before integrating using the PhotoShelter Configurator. And remember, every time you change your WordPress site design (updated Menus, Theme Options or Widgets), you need to update your PhotoShelter site. Here are the official instructions from PhotoShelter for using the configurator.
