Menus ↑ Back to top
In the menus section, you can create or edit menus. To create your first menu, make sure to create at least a couple of pages.
Navigate to the Customize » Menus and click Create New Menu. You can name it however you like. In the theme demo, we named it “Primary Menu.”
To make this your main navigation menu, update from within Theme Locations (Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations), check the Primary Menu box and save it.
The social menu bar is built using a standard WordPress menu. Navigate to the Customize » Menus and create a new menu. You can name it however you like. In the theme demo, we named it “Social Menu.”
To make this your social menu, update from within Theme Locations (Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations), check the Secondary Menu box and save it.
To add socials to the social menu, you first need to add Custom Links to the menu. Then inside the “URL” field, add your social page URL and in the “Link Text” field, add the name of the social platform, for example, “Facebook.” Once you add it to the menu, the social icon will automatically show up inside the socials bar. Once you are finished adding all your socials, click “Save Menu.”

Creating pages such as the homepage, about, contact, etc.
All page layouts in the Olorien theme are built using WordPress block editor. Olorien pre-built patterns are accessible with a click of a button from the block editor. You can find the patterns in the editor sidebar within the Olorien category. To add them to your page, simply drag and drop each pattern into the main editor window.
Once you have added a block pattern to your page, you can start replacing the sample text and images with your own.
