Theme setup

Reinform theme is set to display the latest posts on the homepage. To set your theme in the same way as shown in our demo:

  1. First, you will need to create several post categories. Categories will be used to group posts, and in the theme, we will use them in the navigation and set Featured Category Slider.
  2. When you are done with categories, create several posts and associate them with different categories. Make sure to set the featured image for each post. Tag desired posts with the same tag(e.g. “Featured”). We will use this tag to display those posts in the featured content slider which is displayed on the top of the homepage.
  3. Create several portfolio items as well. Set featured image for each portfolio item.
  4. Now we need to create pages where our content will be displayed – create pages About, Contact and Moodboard. About and Contact pages are using the Default page template, while Moodboard is using the Portfolio page template. Insert contact form into the Contact page.
  5. Reinform theme is using Your latest post-reading settings, so you don’t need to change it.
  6. Go to Appearance -> Menus and create a new menu. Add Home as Custom Link to your homepage, all pages, and add categories as subitems for Categories item. Mark this menu as Primary.
  7. Create another menu – social menu. Add links to your social profiles using Custom Link. When you are done, mark this menu as Social.
  8. Finally, we need to tweak a few things in the customizer. Go to Appearance -> Customize:
    1. Site Identity: Set a logo and favicon for your site.
    2. Content Options: Turn all options on.
    3. Featured content: Enter the tag that you have used for your posts (“Featured”). Please note that posts that you wish to display in the slider must have set the featured image.
    4. Theme Options -> Featured Category Slider: Enable the Featured Category Slider and select the post category that you wish to display in the category slider. Enter a title for the slider and number of posts that you wish to display.
    5. Theme Options -> Layout Settings: Enable Display the featured image in full-width in single posts, and set Blog layout to Magazine style, with three columns.
