Focus is a child theme of _VS. _VS brings your site to life with header video and immersive featured images. With a focus on photography sites, it features multiple widgets on the front page, navigation and social menus, a logo, and more. It has full support to our custom built Sell Media plugin which converts your normal WordPress site to a fully e-commerce site or a stock photography website. You can showcase your gallery as in the demo and start selling your photographs.
- First, download both _VS parent theme and Focus from your Graph Paper Press member dashboard.
- In your WordPress admin panel, go to Appearance -> Themes.
- Click the Add New button.
- Click the Upload Theme button and upload both _VS theme and Focus theme.
- After uploading both themes, go back to the Themes page and on Focus theme, click the Activate button to use your new theme right away.
- Navigate to Appearance -> Customize in your admin panel and customize to taste.
Setting up your homepage
- There are different ways to set up homepage on Focus theme.
- By default, all your posts will be shown in your homepage which looks like a normal blog layout.
- You can also change this look and set a 'Static Front Page'. First, you will have to create a page. Go to Pages -> Add New.
- On the Page title, type Front Page and Publish the page. Also, you can create another page called 'Blog' if you want to run a blog as well.
- Go to Settings -> Reading and set the 'Front page displays setting to a. the Front page you created and b. the blog page you created.
- Now, if you are selling your photos, you need to install and activate Sell Media plugin. This will activate a 'Gallery widget' to show on the homepage.
- Go to Appearance -> Customize page. You should see a Homepage setting. Here, you can add widgets such as Banner, Big Image, Map, Gallery, etc. If you have Sell Media gallery uploaded, you can set that gallery in the Gallery widget. This gallery will appear in the homepage as in the Demo. The demo also has a Big Image widget just to show the flexibility of the theme.
Setting up the menu
- Go to Appearance -> Customize and click Menus option. You can create a new menu and add pages, posts, galleries that you want to show.
- Assign that menu to the 'Primary Menu'.
Gallery Layouts & Recommended Plugins
Sell Media : https://wordpress.org/plugins/sell-media/ We highly recommend using our Sell Media plugin to start selling your photos. Sell Media has a gallery widget which can be added to homepage layout via Customize -> Homepage. Under Customize -> Design -> Layout, you can also set the crop option and various gallery layouts such as Masonry layouts and different column layouts.
JetPack : https://wordpress.org/plugins/jetpack/ We recommend JetPack plugin as it has various modules added to it such as Tiled Galleries. This can be really nice if you do not plan to use Sell Media but need diversity for gallery layouts.
