A site or blog that use inblu can be also read via mobile devices thanks to CSS3 Media Queries implementation.

Once the theme is installed and activated it is just needed to go in WordPress Administration Appearance section and do the customizations:

Custom menu:

Create a new custom menu by typing the desired name in Menu name, save the menu.

If you want to have a static page as front page of your site inblu offers a custom template design to cover this option.

Custom theme modification:

Before start remember that to make custom theme modification you need to know HTML, PHP/WordPress Coding and CSS, at least.

I do not take responsibility of any problems caused by a wrong usage of the theme. If you need to do a custom theme modification or you need more informations before start do the theme editing feel free to ask support to me via e-mail.

Child Theme:

In order to modify the ar theme you need to create a WordPress Child Theme.

To create an inblu wordpress child theme you have to follow the following steps:

  1. Create a folder into wp-content/themes/ and name it as you want, for example inblu-child,
  2. create an empty style.css file inside the wp-content/themes/inblu-child/ folder,
  3. Edit style.css by adding the following code at the very top of the file:
    Theme Name: inblu-child 
    Description: Child theme for inblu 
    Author: Your Name 
    Template: inblu 
    @import url(../inblu/style.css);
  4. Your CSS rules will be inserted below the @import declaration.
  5. Go to Appearance -> Themes and activate your new inblu-child.
  6. You can also create new templates files by copy and paste the template files you want to modify into the wp-content/themes/inblu-child/ folder and do your modification.
