How we built our demo

Before building homepage, it’s suggested to create your products, product categories, posts and post categories.

First, we have created the following pages:

  1. Home
  2. About
  3. Blog
  4. Contact Us

WooCommerce plugin will create necessary pages – Shop, Cart, Checkout, My Account, Privacy Policy. These pages are not editable, except for Privacy Policy where you should put your text.

Home page

The homepage is built using several patterns and blocks. The following are instructions on how to build the same homepage as shown in our demo. With little bit planning, you can build a homepage that will fully suit your needs, with more product categories, blog posts, etc.

The homepage is built from several sections. We will explain each section.

  1. Insert Header pattern 2. Replace the background image with the desired one. Change the text and set text color and size. Do the same for the button that is included in the header.
  2. Under the header image, insert large text and link.
  3. In the third element, insert two columns and set width to Wide width. Combine spacer elements with the Featured Category WooCommerce block to create a grid. The background image is set for each block after inserting that block into the grid.
  4. In Featured Categories we have inserted Featured Product block. Turn off the description for this block.
  5. New Collection section is using a block from WooCommerce – Hand-Picked Products. Insert heading first(“New Collection”) and then Hand-Picked Products block from WooCommerce blocks.
  6. Button is a regular WordPress button with an outline design.
  7. Short paragraph of text with the link is followed by Featured Posts pattern from Query category. For Query Loop you will need to set a number of columns to 3, and then using vertical directional arrows for blocks to create the desired layout.
  8. Insert Full-screen header pattern with a button, similar as on step 1.
  9. Finally, insert Logos with a two-column testimonials pattern. Set the number of columns to 4 and edit the text and replace logos with your own.

About

On the About page insert Header 1 element. Set the background image. Insert spacer element above the text and remove smaller text and button. Insert the content in the content area.

Blog

The Blog page is the page where all posts are displayed. There are no elements on this page. This page is using a template Index.

Contact US

Contact Us page contains only text with the contact information.
