Editing The Site Name And Tagline

  1. Site Name: Enter the name of your website in the field
  2. Site Description: Enter a tagline for your website in the field

To add a logo to your imported Kit, you may assign it by uploading your logo in the Site Identity settings. It will then be used for the header and footer of your website when the Site Logo Widget is used. You may use jpg, png, and gif file types.

  1. Site Logo: Use the media tool to choose an image from your media library or upload from your computer. This will be used by the Site Logo widget and other site functions
  2. Site Favicon: The favicon is used in the browser as the tiny icon located at at the top of the tab. Use the media tool to choose an image from your media library or upload from your computer.

Note: SVGs may be used if previously uploaded to the media library. You must also define a size in the style tab of your Site Logo Widget.


Creating The Menu

At this time, the Site Kit does not automatically create your Navigation Menu. You will need to create your own menu from the WordPress dashboard located at Appearance > Menus or from the Customizer.

Creating A Menu With The Customizer

From the top Admin Bar of your website, or from Dashboard > Appearance choose to enter the Customizer. For this example we will be using the Hello Theme. Select the Menus accordion here:

Assign Menu To The Nav Menu Widget

You may now also need to assign your new menu to the Nav Menu widget. To do this, edit your Header template in the Theme Builder. From the Menu selector field, choose your newly created menu to assign it to the widget.

Note: If your Footer template uses a Nav Menu widget, you may use the steps above to create and assign an additional menu(s)to be used.
