UPLOAD FONTS

The default fonts in the demo are:

  • Navigation Font: Droid Sans
  • Heading Font1: Droid Sans
  • Heading Font2: Droid Sans
  • Content Font: Inconsolata

To upload a custom font to this template do the following:

Step 1: Prepare your zipped font file

  1. If you already have the OTF or TTF file that you want to use then skip to step 6.
  2. Go to http://www.fontsquirrel.com/
  3. Find your font, click on it so it takes you to that font's page
  4. Click the "Download OTF or TTF" button
  5. Unzip the file
  6. Go back to http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ and click the "Web Generator" button in the navigation
  7. Click the "Add Fonts" button and upload the font file (that you just unzipped)
  8. Check the Agreement box
  9. Click the "Download your kit" button (this is the zip file that you will upload to your product)

* Please note: if you are using Safari, the zip might automatically unpack once downloaded. This will not work. To change this setting

In Safari go to Preferences > General, and uncheck "Open SAFE files after downloading". 

Step 2: Upload a font

  1. If you are logged into the backend of your product,
  2. Click on the "Design tab"
  3. Click on the "Fonts" tab
  4. Click "Upload"
  5. Click "Save"

You can edit everything on the home page in WordPress > ITDR Admin (bottom of the wordpress navigation).

 

 

 

GOOGLE ANALYTICS, CONTACT, SOCIAL MEDIA

This video goes over the Setup tab that will allow you to do things like set up your Google analytics, Contact page, and Social Media icons. 

 

 

 

CONTACT PAGE

If you want a sidebar on the contact page where you have the option to include your email, phone, fax, address, and even a Google map, go to the ITDR Admin (bottom of the WordPress navigation) > Setup > Contact and fill in your desired information.

To get a Google Map on the contact page like the demo, go to Google Maps and search your address. Now click "Link" on the top right of the page and copy the HTML embed code. Then go to the "Contact Page" section of the theme admin panel and paste the code in the Google Maps box. You can adjust the size of the map by adjusting the “height” and “width” in the code you just pasted.
