Mobile Menu

As of today April 9 2016 the Warcraft wordPress theme is configured for mobile responsive browsing.

The theme is now mobile and responsive*. Theme has been integrated with Slicknav Menu plugin and let me highlight this – the menu integration is multi-level JQuery touch responsive menu.
You can resize browser window on demo site, to see how it works.

(*Only in theme Version-2, both mobile view Featured image slider and sidebar disappear, bottom 3 widgets stack vertically and are visible)

So If you have purchased the theme before this date and you want to have responsive site you need to download and reinstall the theme and Slicknav menu plugin.

Theme update is really easy, simply delete the one on your site from WP admin interface and upload and install the updated theme zip file and activate it.

(Keep in mind that if you have made some customizations to the theme files they will be lost, unless you back them up. But If you have made customizations you probably know this) Always recommended to use child-theme for your own tweaks.

 For mobile menu to work install SlickNav plugin  (look in your downloads) and configure as shown below.

Go to your WordPress Admin panel.

Go Settings > Slicknav Menu

See image below on how to configure the plugin

Only the CSS Menu ID  #primary-menu entry is mandatory, rest of the colour configurations are recommendations to fit the theme.

Wowhead Tooltips Shortcode – 1 click

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

The composer window has the Wowhead button that inserts shortcode.

wowhead shortcode

I have created Wowhead Shortcode that enables you to insert any World of Warcraft item with just one click.

No need to meddle with “urls, rels, hrefs” in html code every time you want to link an item.

All you have to do is type in the item number you want to display in your post. That’s it!

Where to get the wow item number?

Simply here: http://www.wowhead.com/items

you can search item you’re looking for and get the item number from mouse over

wowhead-item-number

Do Wowhead Tooltips work in bbPress Forums?

If you want the shortcode to work with bbPress Forums (since bbpress is a plugin and not part of core WP) you’ll need to activate the shortcode function for it.
Easiest way is to use THIS PLUG-IN .
After you install and activate the plugin, the wowhead tooltips will work in bbpress forums as well.

BBPress Forum Integration

This Warcraft WordPress theme also comes with BBPRESS integrated design coding and graphics. You need to take couple of steps to activate it .Install BBpress forum plugin and create a “forums” page for it, as described in the video. The theme will automatically override the design and integrate the forum into your WordPress installation.

Front Page – Featured Slider

Guide for version 2 of Warcraft WordPress Theme

Warcraft WordPress Theme has built in very lightweight slider that works in front-page template.

Slider displays only Featured (category) Posts with Featured Images attached to them

The way this slider works is that you don’t need to configure images into it separately. The integration is combined with your regular blogging activity. You just need to assign the featured category and featured image to a standard post and slider will do the rest.

The slider will display custom size, pre-cut thumbnails of Featured posts along with post titles.

By default slider will hold latest 12 featured posts. (number can be changed in template file.)

  1. Create a standard Post
  2. assign “featured” category
  3. add featured image
  4. hit publish.

Note: to avoid duplicating content with slider and front-page excerpts, front -page posts excludes “featured” category posts. (because they are already displayed by the slider)

Front Page Template + Blog

In order to set up and activate built-in custom front page template you need to
create the page in your admin panel “Pages > Add New” and 

  • Name it:  Home
  • Select desired template
  • Press “Publish” button
  • Go to Appearances > Reading, check “static page” and choose “home” from drop-down menu.

“Front Page Excerpts” – This option will show Featured category Post Slider and posts as excerpts on front page

Front Page Excerpts” – This option will show Featured category Post Slider and posts as excerpts on front page

Front Page Full Posts” – This option will also display Featured Post Slider but instead of excerpts will display full posts.

All Excerpts No slider” – This option removes the Featured Post Slider and shows ALL excerpts (including Featured category, since we’re removing featured category slider.)

Full Width / No Sidebar Page” – As the name implies, removes the sidebar and shows page content in full width of the site; also is intended for inside pages (not for the front page)

Front Page Templates

Make sure go to Appearances > Reading and set statick page and choose “home” from drop-down menu.

NEW – all Excerpts no slider – template

If you want to have separate chronological Blog apart from the front page that includes all posts create “Blog” page in your Admin panel.
Go to Reading Settings and select Posts Page: Blog.
Then you need to add that “blog” page to the menu and you’re done.

WordPress calls it “static” because the container pages are considered static but there are dynamic content inside.

Installation

After you purchase the theme you will receive a shop membership and several downloadable zip files.

Upload your main theme zip and install it. You don’t have to upload all images at once. Unzip locally and see which ones you want to upload.

In your WordPress admin panel go to:
Appearance > Themes
Choose: Add Theme > UPLOAD.
Select the downloaded zipped theme and hit upload.

After you upload you need to activate it*

*This theme comes with a Child Theme. If you are planning to customize theme, using a Child theme is  recommended; in that case, you need to upload/install both main theme and child theme and activate Child theme (in which you’ll do the custom styling etc.)

Theme will create “featured” category during installation, since it’s needed for slider to work. (You can rename the featured category name but do not rename or delete the featured category slug!)

Your theme is ready to be configured. Appearance > Menus and create main menu and add your pages and categories.
