Responsive Design ↑ Back to top
Buro is a responsive theme, this is a term that’s been coined that means the theme responds to most any device and screen size it’s viewed on. Yes, this means that the theme works and pretty much looks just the same as it does on your desktop and smartphone. Instead of serving up separate sites for devices, this theme adapts and tries its best to provide your device or screen size with the best experience it can.
Set up The Featured Slider ↑ Back to top
The unique home page featured slider can be used to display noteworthy content and has it’s own custom post type called Slides designated to it. The slider uses custom post images for the slide image, and then shows the the title and content below the slide image.
The Buro homepage slider pulls the custom “slides” post type. The number of slides is set under the Homepage Slider in the Settings panel. You can set the animation and fade speed, as well as enable touchswipe for devices like iPads under the settings.
To add slides to your homepage:
- Go to Slides > Add New
- Add slide content in the main content area, including a title and description.
- Add a Featured Image for the slide.
- Scroll down to review additional options in Buro Custom Settings for URL to link to or to add video embed code.
- Publish slide to save.
Set up The Blog ↑ Back to top
To create a dedicated blog page you need to create a new page, it doesn’t need any content in it, as you would the portfolio page documented above. Then assign the Blog page template to that page. Once you’ve done that you can go to: Appearance > Menus page and add a menu item to your navigation so visitors can easily access the page.
