How to use WordPress - overview
Custom Post and Page Editing for this site
The theme comes with a number of shortcodes allowing you to add styled content to your site with little effort.
Shortcodes can embed files or create objects that would normally require lots of complicated code in just one
Conveniently, the available shortcodes have been included as buttons in the WYSIWYG editor. When creating
a page or post, click the desired shortcode icon to insert your code. Simply hover over the buttons to see what
shortcodes you’ll be inserting.
Column shortcodes give you the versatility of creating variable layouts on a page. You can break paragraphs,
images, and even other shortcodes into columns of your chosing. Columns are also responsive, and will
automatically format themselves for mobile viewing.
Note: You must end each set of columns with a “last” option such as “One_Half_Last”.
Columns go in halfs, thirds, fourths, fifths and sixths:
Buttons have the following options:
For custom background colors. Must be in hexidecimal form and start with #.
Titled Divider Shortcode
This shortcode lets you place a divider anywhere. The divider will automatically match the width of it’s container.
For instance, if you want a half-width divider, place it inside a
Feature Tabs Shortcode
The featured tabs shortcode allows you to insert content into multiple featured tabs. The tabs can be viewed in
turn by the user. You can include any number of tabs but you must ensure the number of titles and tabs match.
To get multiple videos into the portfolio there is is a special video plugin: https://www.photo-banks.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=revslider&view=slides&id=1
To add a new video, create a new slide, click on the “Add Layer: Video” button. This will open a popup with three video options: YouTube, Vimeo, or HTML5.
For the YouTube and Vimeo options, you just paste in the video ID and click search. After the slider finds the video you’ll be able to see a screenshot of it in the popup to confirm that the ID you entered displays the correct video. Then you can enter a custom video size or set it full-width (si it fill the slider), add auto play and auto transition.
The images for the about slider can be updated here: https://www.photo-banks.com/wp-admin/admin.php?page=metaslider
Create a page and a userwith the same name as the client, when they login the site reads their username and then looks for a page with the same name.
So, for example. Let's say you have a client called Example
Go to Users>Add New
Give them a username: "Example"
Enter their email address
Give them a password
Then scroll down to: "s2Member Configuration & Profile Fields"
Ignore it all apart from "Custom Capabilities" and enter their username "example"
Click "Add New User"
Now you create their page Pages>Add New
Give it a title: "Example" (remember, must be the same as the username.)
To the right in the s2 Member box. Choose "Require level 0" from the drop down, and add their username in Require Custom Capabilities (like the box above), so "Example"
Then add any text you want.
To add the gallery click on "Add Media"
Upload the files or select them from your media library. Tick the ones you want and click "insert into page"
Upload the zip file of images the same way through "Add Media" - BUT in the Attachment Details box on the left, change the title to "Download the Zip" or "Here are your pictures" or leave it blank for the file title. Then hit "Insert Into Page"
