If you are a Wordpress beginner it's highly recomended to install the Demo Content, which will give you a basic content setup similar to our demo website. Navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Kayn Options, click on Import Demo Content button and wait until it ends. Note that import time depends on your internet connection and server config.
If you are not a Wordpress beginner and you've just skipped the demo content setup you should get the basic idea how this theme works.
To set up a Logo navigate to Appearance > Customize > Site Identity > Logo Setup. Select an Image from Media Library or upload a new one.
Width option should be the same as your logo image width(x) dimension is. To setup a Retina logo, you need to upload 2x bigger image than the Width option is set, for ex: if the Logo image width(x dimension) is 400px, then you should set Width option to 200px.
You can set a header background image from Appearance > Customize > Page Header. To set up a full screen image, you should set Background Image Size to Cover, but if you want the header image to be repeated - set to Pattern. Also, change the Background Type to display a Slider or Video headers.
You can add your own Copyright information from Appearance > Customize > Page Footer. Also, you can enable/disable Social media Icons.
Kayn theme supports Portfolio Posts, which are pretty similar to default WordPress blog posts. Navigate to Dashboard > Portfolio > Add New to create a new portfolio post. Please note that you should set a Featured Image for each portfolio post to build a Portfolio Grid properly, otherwise it won't work as expected.
Most of the Portfolio Page options are located in Appearance > Customize > Portfolio Page section. You can control Horizontal and Vertical gutters of your Portfolio Grid, change Read More button text, disable/enable all elements, choose from 4 pagination types: Default, Numeric, Infinite Scroll, Load More Button. Pro version has inbuilt Post Sharing which could be enabled from the Portfolio Page section.
You can change Portfolio Grid Layout from Customize > General Layouts > Page Layouts(tab) > Portfolio Page.
All Blog Page options are located in Appearance > Customize > Blog Page section. You can change Post Description type from Post Excerpt to Post Content. The Post Excerpt will display limited trimmed content(only words), while the Post Content will show original post content which could be cut by a <!--more--> tag.
You can control Horizontal and Vertical gutters of your Blog Grid, set Post Excerpt Length, change Read More button text, disable/enable all elements, choose from 4 pagination types: Default, Numeric, Infinite Scroll, Load More Button. Pro version has inbuilt Post Sharing which could be enabled from the Blog Page section.
You can change Blog Grid Layout from Customize > General Layouts > Page Layouts(tab) > Blog Page.
Also you can Disable/Enable some Blog Post elements such as Categories, Date, Author, etc...
Related Posts could be disabled by setting Related Posts - Display options to None value.
Featured Links or Promo Boxes will showcase your custom links or links to pages on your website. Go to Appearance > Customize > Featured Links and enable them via global checkbox. Then you should set a Title, URL and an Image, but note that without images they won't work properly.
Theme supports 4 widgetized areas. Just add widgets in them and they will show up. Empty sidebars are hidden by default.
Sidebar Left widgets will be displayed on the left side of your Blog Feed and the Sidebar Right to the right side.
Footer Widgets will be displayed after your Portfolio and Blog Feeds.
There is additional Instagram Widget area which is displayed in the Page Footer, above your copyright information. To setup instagram on your website you need to install/activate Instagram Slider Widget or WP Instagram Widget plugin from Plugins > Add New, after you activate one of these plugins, related Instagram Widget will appear in your widgets list(Appearance > Widgets), then just drag it to Instagram Widget area and enter your credentials.
