Business One Theme Docs

Theme features

Normal WordPress functionality. Writing normal posts, will be displayed blog style as usual. In case you have created a front page, you will need to create also a blog page where your posts will be displayed (see Front Page template below).

This theme allows you to create pages for your products. Each product has its own image slider that allows you to give your customers an idea of your product.
To add a new product, go to Products -> New Product and write a title and content. Then, from the Upload/Insert link, or the Product Details box, upload a few images of your product. Set one to be the Featured Image so that it can be used on product listing pages.
To list your products, read Product Listing Page template below.

Client Testimonials
To create a new Testimonial, go to Testimonials -> New Testimonial. Use the main title to note who’s testimonial it is (e.g. John Doe) and use the main content area to write the client’s testimonial.
Testimonials can be displayed using the Testimonials Page Template, or you can display them on any widget area using the -=CI Testimonials=- widget that we bundled with the theme.

This theme supports widgets. There are multiple widget areas defined. One, Blog Sidebar, which appears on the left hand side of the content, on usual blog posts and listing/archive pages. The Products Sidebar, appears on the left of product listing pages. The Pages Sidebar appears on the right of normal pages.
There are two more additional widget areas for the footer, Emphasized Footer Widgets and Footer Widgets, that are displayed on every page. These two areas, are displayed on top of each other, while the Emphasized Footer Widgets is specifically design to stand out more.
There are three additional widget areas that are specific to the front page template. Read Front Page template for more information.

Custom Menus
This theme supports custom menus. There is one menu location defined, Main Menu, that appears under the header.
There is one more menu position, Top Menu that appears on the very top-right corner of your website. This menu can also show a unique Offers button. Read CSSIGNITER Settings – Product Options for more information on the Offers button.

Front Page template
To set-up a front page, you need to create two pages. Name the first one “Blog” or something similar. Name the second one “Front Page” or something similar, and from the Page Attributes box assign it the Front Page template. Next, go to Settings -> Reading, on the Front page displays select A static page and on the following two drop-downs select first your Front Page and then your Blog page. Save your changes.

The front page consists of a slider and three widget areas. You may assign any widgets to those areas, but we recommend you structure them just like we do on the live demo and the sample content of the theme.
To assign images to the slider, you need to create slider items. From your admin screen, go to Slider Items -> New Slider Item, enter a title, content, assign big enough Featured Image and on the Slider Details box, enter a Slider Item URL. This allows your slide to be linked anywhere you want. If you leave this blank, the slide will appear but won’t be linking anywhere.

Product Listing Page template
You may have any page displaying all, or a subset, of your products. All you need is to assign the Product Listing template from the Page Attributes box. Then, from the Base Products Category box, click on the drop-down and select the product category (or subcategory) that you want the products to appear. Leaving this blank, pull products from all categories.

Testimonials Page template
You may have any page displaying all your clients’ testimonials. All you need is to assign the Testimonials template from the Page Attributes box.

Full Width Page template
You may have any page displaying full-width, without a sidebar. All you need is to assign the Full Width, No Sidebar template from the Page Attributes box.

Archive page template
You can have an archive page displaying your posts based on the date. All you need is to create an empty page and assign the Archive template from the Page Attributes box.
