About The Theme

Create And Set a Static Homepage

By default after fresh installation of the Conj - eCommerce WordPress Theme, the homepage will look like a blog, and this is how WordPress is intended to work.

Many shop owners want a static front page or splash page to be presented as front page instead. This feature is especially useful for shops that want to keep a blog separate from other sections of their site or for users who wish to showcase their products other than blog posts on the front page of their site.

The look and feel of the front page of the site is based upon the choices of the user combined with the features and options of the Conj - eCommerce WordPress Theme.

Creating static front-page to display as soon as users land on your website

Create a Front Page

  1. Login to the your WordPress Dashboard.

  2. Create a new page, by visiting Pages » Add New.

  3. Set the page title (e.g. Home).

  4. From the template drop-down in the Page Attributes meta box select Fluid Template.

  5. Add content you would like to see within the content area of the static front page.

  6. Publish the page.

The page assigned as the front page of the site will display the static information you wish your readers to know. It may be customized to direct people to welcome or give instructions, featured product, highlight specific coupon or sale offer, articles, shop by categories, or any other block you wish your visitors to see as soon as they land on your site.

Create a Blog Page

  1. Login to the your WordPress Dashboard.

  2. Create a new page, by visiting Pages » Add New.

  3. Set the page title (e.g. Blog, News, Articles, or an appropriate name).

  4. Do not use any custom Page template for this page. The template files for the archive will be used automatically to generate this page within the theme.

  5. DO NOT add content. Leave it blank as any content here will be ignored.

  6. Publish the page.

The page assigned as the blog page (posts page) of the site displays posts in reverse chronological order. Posts set as Sticky posts will stick to the top of the queue, and navigation and organization of post content are through categories and tags.
