How to Setup the Menu

September 6, 2012

Want to add a menu to the top of each page? No problem! The Commodore theme includes a simple horizontal menu that you can customize from within WordPress.

To add a menu, just login to WordPress Admin and go to Appearance>Menus. If no menu exists, type in a new Menu Name and click “Create Menu”. You can add items just by selecting them on the left and clicking “Add to Menu”. Once listed in the menu, you can drag and drop them to reorganize the menu. Click “Save Menu” and then select the menu under “Header Menu” in the “Theme Locations” container and click “Save”. That’s it!

Note: You may need to click “Screen Options” at the top right corner of the screen to see all of the available options for adding content to the menus.

How to Setup the Sidebar

September 6, 2012

The Commodore theme allows for a nifty right sidebar which you can use to display widgets. The sidebar is enabled on this site, as you can see on the right, and we’ve included a number of widgets including the search box at the top.

To activate the sidebar in WordPress, just login to WordPress Admin and go to Appearance>Widgets. Then simply drag and drop the items you wish to display into the Sidebar container. The sidebar is about 200 pixels wide and can be as tall as you’d like.

That’s all there is to it!
