Inspiro Lite – Child Theme

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

Child Themes are used when you want to make changes to a theme without actually changing the code or the files in your original theme. This lets you update your original theme (which is the engine behind the child theme) without losing any changes you made to your site.

If you want to make just some small changes, like adding custom CSS code, we recommend to add it in the Customizer > Additional CSSView instructions.

Custom functions can also be added without creating a Child Theme by using the My Custom Functions plugin.

Create a Child Theme Using Child Theme Configurator Plugin

There are a number of plugins out there these days that will help you create a child theme. We’ve found the Child Theme Configurator plugin to work well.

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

Using Beaver Builder

After the installation of Inspiro theme, you will be asked to install and activate recommended plugins.

Some of the recommended plugins are:

Beaver Builder (Lite)
WPZOOM Addons for Beaver Builder
WPZOOM Templates for Beaver Builder

Once you will have these plugins installed, you will be able quickly to load layouts from the demo of Inspiro or create your own page layouts.

If you haven’t used Beaver Builder before, we recommend you to start here.


How to load Demo Templates in Beaver Builder?

When you create or edit a page, you will see a block called Beaver Builder where you can launch the builder:

Clicking that blue button, you will open the front-end page builder.

If you want to quickly load pre-built templates for Inspiro, click on the Templates area:

Quickly insert in pages pre-built templates

If you use a premium version of Beaver Builder, then you will need to select the Inspiro Lite group to see these templates:

If you want more templates and content templates, consider upgrading to Beaver Builder Standard ($99):


Use the right Page Template

In order to get the best results, make sure to set the correct Page Templates to pages you create using the Beaver Builder:

Important Notice

  1. In order to display the slideshow at the top, select the Homepage (Page Builder) page template for the page that you’ll set as Front Page
  2. To set a page you’ve created as front page, go to Settings > Reading and select in the Front Page dropdown.

    How to add Widgets in Beaver Builder

    One thing that we like about Beaver Builder is that it’s not limited to a specific number of modules that you can use on your pages. Beaver Builder allows you to use any existing WordPress widgets you want!

    You can find them in the WordPress Widgets group from Modules:

    Inspiro Lite – Setting up the Homepage using Elementor

    Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

    Thanks to the Elementor integration, you can build easily any kind of layout with custom sections on your front page.


    1. Create the front page & choose the right Page Template

    By default, the theme will display your latest blog posts, but the theme also includes a few Page Templates to create your front page using a Page Builder:

    Homepage (Page Builder) – shows the Hero video automatically at the top
    Homepage (Without Hero Area) – you can add any hero area/slider at the top you want using Elementor.

    Here are some advantages why you should use a Page Builder to create your homepage:

    – A page builder gives you more control and flexibility: full-width sections, image, and video backgrounds;
    – Custom sections with different numbers of columns;
    – Easily adjust design options of each section, column or widget individually: margin, padding, fonts, etc.
    – Advanced tools like Import/Export, templates, etc.

    Now that the advantages of creating your front page using a Page Builder are known to you, let’s proceed to the first step.

    First, create a new page or edit an existing page (e.g. your current static page) and make sure to select the right Page Template:


    2. Assign the new page as your Front Page

    Once you’ve published or edited the page you want to use as your front page, go to Settings > Reading page and select your page in the option: “A static page > Homepage“:


    3. Start building!

    Part 1: Editing the Hero area (large video)

    Now that the right page with the right template is assigned as your front page, you can proceed with configuring the hero area or the sections below it.

    The Hero Area at the top is a part of the theme, so it can’t be edited using the Page Builder.

    You can edit it from the Customizer > Header Media.

    If you want to use a different slideshow at the top and replace the one from the theme, you will need to use a different page template, like “Homepage (Without Hero Area)”.


    Part 2: Editing the rest of the page using Elementor

    If you selected to built your homepage using the Page Builder, go back to edit that page, and click on the blue button “Edit with Elementor“:

    If you don’t see this block or the button available, probably the Elementor plugin is not installed or active on your website.

    Loading Elementor Templates

    If you haven’t loaded the demo content of the theme and want to start building your website from scratch, one of the starting points would be importing a layout.

    Click on the blue W icon (WPZOOM Library) in Elementor to load one of the pre-built Inspiro templates.

    Choose one of the pre-built templates and click on Insert Template.

     

    If you’re new to the Elementor page builder, this Getting Started guide could be of help.

    If you haven’t used Elementor before, we recommend you to start here.
