Is it possible to somehow upload what appears in the theme preview onto a website and then edit from there? I do not know a lot of CSS and have found this theme to be overwhelming.
I have no clue how to get client testimonials, I have no idea how to implement the photo in the middle of the about us page, and can’t seem to find the cool icons on the slider.October 15, 2013 at 8:10 am #2224livemeshKeymaster
Yes, it is certainly possible and I know it can be really frustrating to rebuild the site all by yourself. We provide entire set of data that powers our demo site so that when you import the file provided in WordPress Admin, you can replicate the demo site exactly like what you see on the preview site. Pls have a look at the videos here for help. Let me know if you need further help –
There are other videos too here –October 15, 2013 at 8:28 pm #2236SnowMember
Thanks for that info! That helped a ton. I was able to install the sample data on a child theme. One question I have is that when I go to the editor now it does not allow me to edit the code.
When I started editing, some simple things such as fonts enlarging but still being labeled ‘heading 2’ happened. I thought this would be a quick fix by going to the editor. Is there a way to view these files to edit the code?
I can also email you if that is easier for you, thanks a ton! I appreciate your help this far.October 16, 2013 at 3:29 am #2237livemeshKeymaster
You should be able to edit most of the content in the visual editor. While I try to create shortcodes which involve “complex” markup, converting everything into shortcodes is something that limits the user’s ability to customise content and can make your code too much dependent on the theme you load. While you can use the visual editor most of the time when editing a page, some times you may want to switch to html editor(or text editor as seen here) as seen here –
to better control the content. You should never have any problems editing the code in the HTML editor at least. If you have issues, pls reply as a private message here with the site URL and a temporary login to the WordPress dashboard and I can take a look. You may also email me the same (see bottom right box in my profile page).
