    Do you have a guide to setting the Blue Chip template in the form of pdf, so that we can more easily understand it. thank you

    1. Hi Hab, no we don’t have any formal documentation. As a free theme we can’t justify the time of producing this. The good news is that it is very simple. The video above explains the basics, and really the hardest thing will be getting familiar with the Ultimate Short Codes plugin if you want to use that to achieve similar layouts as the demo site in the video.

      There are some good video tutorials on the Ultimate Short Codes plugin here.

    Charles, my homepage comes up as the “blog” page when I install this theme, which I cannot edit. I can’t find how to edit the default homepage like you have in the demo.

    1. charles Charles says:

      Hi Geoff, yes that is the default configuration for WordPress. You need to do the following:

      1. Create a new static Page called “Home” (or similar). Apply the “Homepage” template to this new page. Then also create another static page called “Blog” (or similar). The template choice doesn’t matter for this latter page..
      2. Go to Settings > Reading and set the New “Home” page you just created as the Home page and the “blog” page as the blog page. This will display a static home page like the demo and also give you a blog page.
      3. Now, the Homepage template (as on the demo) consists of several blocks of content and each of these is created as a regular page, i.e. you create a new page for each block of content and then under Appearance > Customize you will find the Homepage Settings where you can assign each of those pages to the respective content block on the home page template.
      4. When you installed the theme you would have been prompted to install the free Shortcodes Ultimate plugin which is what we recommend for creating more interesting layouts like you see on the demo home page.

      I hope this helps. If you havn’t already I also recommend watching the demo video above. It isn’t massively comprehensive but provides a nice intro to how the theme works.

    Is there a way to remove the redundant page title on the banner? For example, on the Home page it says “HOME” in white letters in the banner and also shows the navigation bar Home, About Us… I tried to do this with the Customization but couldn’t see how. Thank you!

    1. charles Charles says:

      Hi Michael, it looks like you are using the standard full width page template for the home page yes? Assuming so, you can just remove “Home” for the title field on the page admin screen, click save, and it will remove that from the home page. Or you could change the title to something like “Welcome to Cleveland Understands Biotech”.

      If you use the special “Homepage” template for the home page then the content (not the title) of that page is displayed over the hero featured image (as on our demo), so in that case you can simply choose not to have any content appear in that spot.

      Hope that helps.

        Thanks Charles for your response. I played around with this suggestion but if you remove the Title, the WP dashboard deletes your page name too and this becomes confusing to maintain. Is there a way to get the menu bar up on the location top bar (above the banner image)? That would do fine as well. I suppose I could also use a sidebar widgit. The Homepage template idea is good too… I’ll see about that idea too. Out of curiosity, you only get 5 sections. Can you build multiple pages within 1 section, so you can fit the whole site in?

        1. charles Charles says:

          Hi Michael, there is no simple way to put the menu bar at the top above the banner image. This will require you to make changes to the theme code. For the sections on the home page, the plain full width sections provide more flexibility for adding content so you could experiment with this to see if you can get what you want. If the theme isn’t flexible enough for you, I’d take a look at something like Beaver Builder which will allow you much more flexibility to build your own layouts.

    Can you change the color blue to something else? And also can the text and button on the image be hidden

    1. charles Charles says:

      Hi Donna, yes, the main theme colors can be controlled in the Customizer and the text and button you see on the demo were edited using the Ultimate Short Codes plugin, which you will be prompted to install when you activate the theme but is entirely optional. You can put whatever you like there, or have nothing, just the image.

  6. Nick says:

    Very neat theme. Perfect for small business.
    Guys please tell me how can I download the content you created along with the theme in order to edit it later?

    1. charles Charles says:

      Hi Nick, there is no download for the demo site content. You’ll need to install the Ultimate shortcodes plugin and use this to add your own content to any pages (including the home page) you want to build.
