Creating Content

Under Dashboard > Pages > Add you can choose from three templates:

  • Page
  • Articles
  • Authors


This is the default for standard pages.


Footer navigation option: By default, all visible pages appear in the top menu. If you check this option, the page will be shown in the footer menu instead of the top.


Magazine theme uses pages as categories. Add a page using the Articles template to group all the articles of a certain category. Notice that if you prefer not to use categories you can group all articles inside a page (e.g. Blog).


This is the blueprint to create single articles.
