Widgets



Adamas is a very powerful and beautiful business WP theme. To fine tune the theme we need to perform a few steps in set of widgets. Well, let's go!



1. Setting sidebars

Back to top

Now we will set up several sidebars, which are already fully imported earlier, but require certain adjustments. Go to "Appearance" and then to "Widgets". On the left side of the screen you will see the available widgets, and the right side of the screen you will see the available sidebars for Adamas theme. Now we do some setting sidebars. Everything is very simple.

Sidebars

We need to add some custom menu in certain sidebars:

  • Services Sidebar 1. First click on this sidebar (p.1 on image below), then click on the "Services Menu" tab (p.2 on image below). Now in the "Select Menu:" (p.3 on image below) and select the "Services Menu" (p.4 on image below) and click on the "Save".
  • Services Sidebar
  • Services Sidebar 3. For this sidebar repeat identical settings as for the "Services Sidebar 1".
  • Sidebar for About. For this sidebar repeat identical settings as for the "Services Sidebar 1", only use the "Menu for About" in Select Menu.


Setting any of the sidebar you can change on your own.

Click on the sidebars and look at their contents. Everything can change and customize for yourself. For example:

Open the sidebar "Services Sidebar 2" (p.1 on image below) and "Contact" tab (p.2 on image below). Now change the text fields of the widget (p.3, 4, 5 on image below) and click on "Save" (p.6 on image below). So you change the widget's content on the site where it is housed.

Contact

IMPORTANT!

You can easily change the order of translation widget in the sidebar. Just hover over the widget in the sidebar and composition as the cursor takes the form of "Crosshair" drag the widget above or below another. This is a familiar Drag-and-Drop function.

2. Customize footer

Now we set up our footer of site. Adjustment is made by means of changes to the following section: "Footer column 1", "Footer column 2", "Footer column 3", "Footer column 4". We will work with them.

  • Footer column 1. We recommend that you add the "Projects" widget in this sidebar. For information on how to do this, see the section №3 on this page.
  • Footer column 2. Click on the "Footer column 2" and then click on "Custom Menu". In "Select Menu:" In the drop-down list, choose "Footer Menu 2 column". Click "Save".
  • Footer column 3. Click on the "Footer column 3" and then click on "Custom Menu". In "Select Menu:" In the drop-down list, choose "Footer Menu 3 column". Click "Save".

3. Customize widgets in sidebars

Back to top

In each of the existing sidebars, you can add widgets to broadcast them on the site. How to configure custom widgets?



  • Banner - displays image banner. On the right side of the screen are placed all available sidebars. As an example, we choose the sidebar "Services Sidebar 1". Click on the this sidebar (p.1 on image below) and you'll get a drop-down list with the loaded widgets to this sidebar. All available widgets are placed on the left side of the screen. Find the widget "Banner", hover over it (p.2 on image below), hold down the left mouse button and drag it to the "Services Sidebar 1" sidebar (p.3 on image below). Thus you insert a widget in the sidebar. It's simple!
  • Banner

    Now we load the image in the widget itself. Click on "Select an Image" (p.1 on image below), go to the standard picture downloader assign a picture and click on "Save" (p.2 on image below). Now on a particular page, where there is a "Services Sidebar 1" will be broadcast widget with a banner in the form of images you selected.

    Banner

    Set the "Title" field (p.1 on image below), if you want to display it on the site. The "Alternate Text" (p.2 on image below) will allow you to optimize banner for the search engines. "Link" field (p.3 on image below) can be left blank or you can set the desired link. Two options for the transition (p.4 on image below) can also select - "Stay in Window" and "open New Window". Be sure to click on "Save" (p.5 on image below) after making changes.

  • Brochures - displays brochures for download. The procedure of attaching a widget to the sidebar is always the same. We therefore reiterate the previously described for the widget "Banner".

    How to add a URL to the "Brochures" widget? First, we need to go "Media Library" in. Here we load the file in a format: ".doc", ".xls", ".pdf", ".ppt", ".zip", ".rar" or ".7z". After downloading the file via standard loader Wordpress, click on the file and locate the URL field, copy and paste the value in the widget "Brochures".
