Testina WordPress theme documentation, step 2: Theme demo

To set the theme as presented in our demo, you can import the demo file.

Testina WordPress theme documentation, step 3: Theme setup

Testina is set to present a food blogger site. Posts are used for recipes and other entries.

To set up the theme, please follow the next steps:

  1. First, create several posts – set featured image for each post. Group posts in categories. Tag posts that you wish to display in the featured content slider with the same tag (e.g. “Featured”). You have probably noticed that the first slide in our demo is not clickable, with the highlighted second line. To get the same effect, you will need to create a post with the Quote post format, and to wrap the desired title word(s) in a span HTML element with the class “highlighted-text”. Refer to the image below to see how it looks in our editor.
  2. Create some pages – go to Pages -> Add New and create three new pages – About, Contact and Cookbook. All pages are using the Default page template. In the Contact page, you will need to insert a contact form from Jetpack. On the Cookbook page, testimonials are added using the blockquote element.
  3. Leave theme reading as is – the Testina theme is displaying the latest posts on the homepage.
  4. Creating primary and footer menu: Go to Appearance -> Menus. Create a new menu with title e.g. Primary. Add all your pages to it, and mark it as a Primary. Create another menu, but with the title Social. Add links to your social profiles as Custom Link items, and mark it as a Footer menu.
  5. Finally, you’ll probably like to add some personal touch to the theme. Go to Appearance -> Customize.
    • In the Site Identity set your logo or add site title.
    • Content Options: Set a blog to display excerpt, and leave other options turned on.
    • Widgets: Add four widgets – Text, Navigation Menu, Recent Posts and Categories widgets to the sidebar. Into the Text widget, enter the short description of your site or your bio. For Navigation Menu widget choose your Footer Menu. Categories and Recent Posts are widgets that will display a list of your categories and posts.
    • Featured Content: Enter tag(“Featured”) that you have used for your posts. Only posts tagged with the same tag will appear in the slider.
    • Add the following classes to Additional CSS section to tweak some styles:
      .site-title {
          font-weight: 100;
      .emphasis {
          font-size: 50px;
      .page .container.container-small {
          max-width: 980px;
      blockquote {
          margin: 1em 0;
      .emphasis {
          font-weight: 200;
      h1, .last-post .entry-title {
          font-size: 60px;
To create a highlighted post you will need to wrap the desired word(s) in title in code, as displayed, and to set the post format to Quote.
