Setting up the homepage ↑ Back to top

After activating Wootique, the homepage will be empty. This section explains how to populate your homepage with content.

If you use the built-in homepage (index.php) and specify that the homepage display’s content via Wootique > Settings > Homepage Settings, then your latest blog post will be used as the introductory text.

Wootique

The Wootique homepage slider pulls products that have been set as Featured within WooCommerce. If you’re not keen on the slider, you can use a static grid of products by navigating to the Wootique > Settings > Homepage Settings tab without the Wootique custom options.

Don’t forget to create a page specifically for displaying your posts (e.g. Blog) and then assign a page template, if necessary (e.g. blog template).

Recent Products ↑ Back to top

There is no configuration for this section. Recent products will automatically appear when you begin populating your WooCommerce catalog.

Configure the color scheme ↑ Back to top

The Wootique color scheme can be modified to match your company or brand. The main background color, navigation and footer can all be set within the Wootique > Settings > Styling Options tab inside the Wootique settings.

Wootique Styling Options

The main background color can be altered via the color picker. By default, the navigation and footer is set to black with 10% opacity, which will suit many block colors (i.e., the navigation/footer will appear as a slightly darker hue of your chosen background color).

If you set a background image, which can also be done in this tab, you may need to change the opacity of the menu/footer to ensure legibility. This is done by inserting a value between 0 and 1 into the ‘Menu/Footer Opacity’ option. As an example, entering ‘0.5’ here would result in a 50% opaque black menu/footer.

There is also an option to modify the strength of the container box shadow. This works in much the same was as the menu/footer opacity — 0 will result in no box shadow, and 1 will result in a very strong box shadow.

You can also specify a different link color to match your color scheme.
