Hi! Robert here from themeislecom

I welcome you to this tutorial about how to setup our free OBLIQUE WordPress theme ready for your first blog post You can find this theme in your WordPress dashboard by searching for Oblique in Appearance/Themes/Add new After the installation is complete, activate it then install and activate at last two of the recommended plugins; Pirate Forms and Product Review If your WordPress blog is new, here is how it looks now It's time to do some customization so head to Appearance/Customize I just wanted to mention that there is a pro version of this theme with more features like Jetpack Related Posts, Slider (and you can use this feature with our Nivo Slider Plugin), Extra Widget Area, Alternative Layout, Extra Colors, Footer Credits, and Support

You can buy the PRO version by accessing the link in description below this video GENERAL OPTIONS In the General Options tab, you can deactivate the search form in the header area and use the text field below to replace the menu toggle button with some text, menu for example HEADER The Header tab is where you can upload a custom logo, set the logo size, logo style, top & bottom padding for the branding wich is 150px by default and the top & bottom padding on screens larger than 1024px Again, if you buy the pro version of this theme you'll be able to insert a slider in the header area here using a shortcode BLOG OPTIONS Choose your excerpt length here and tick if you wish to hide any of those elements from your index or single post

For example, if you tick to hide date/author/archives on index, that info line will disappear immediately and will stay hidden after you hit the Save&Publish button FONTS Here are the fonts options for your typography and you can set them as you wish Choose the font name, style, sets, font family and sizes for your body text and headings I suggest you check the mobile version of your website before saving this setting using the controls below This way you'll see exactly how much you can play with the font sizes in order to perfectly fit the screen on mobile devices

SITE IDENTITY Blog title and tagline can be changed here in something related to your business and you can set a site icon below by selecting an image with suggested dimensions SOCIAL To create a social profile like in the theme, go back to Menus, create a new menu named social and Add Items with custom links to your social networks Choose the display location as Social then click Save & Publish COLORS Colors are part of your online image as a personal brand and you can choose them wisely here by setting the background color, the primary color, and all the way down to menu icon and review color HEADER IMAGE Here is the current header image
