This documentation will show you how to set up and use the Dottoro Theme and it is for both novice and experienced WordPress users alike.
The documentation will not only explain how to start a new WordPress website with the Dottoro Theme but will also provide information on how to switch from your current WordPress theme to Dottoro Theme.Thanks to its powerful set of tools, the theme provides a highly flexible environment that lets you create a wide range of websites from simple blogs to fully-fledged business solutions.
Along with the standard blog post type Dottoro Theme provides two further ones: Portfolio and News. To help you display your tag and category pages separated for all three post types, tags and categories are also made post type dependent. You can assign a different permalink structure to every post type, making the types your contents belong to visible in the URLs of your website. Some of the widgets also support post types; e.g. for the Recent Posts widget you can set the desired post type, but you can also set it to post type independent mode (more).
Dottoro theme comes with different type of templates that allow you to totally customize the look and feel of your site. There are predefined templates you can choose from and you can also create custom ones. Headers, subheaders, post templates and overlays are all intended to give you as much flexibility as possible (more on Headers, Subheaders, Post Templates, Overlays).
The theme comes with 10+ additional widgets and the standard WordPress widgets have also been improved.
Recent and popular posts, popup menus and slideshows and they are only a few of the additional widgets provided by the theme.
And how to display them where you want and in the layout you want? It is easier than you think.
There are predefined widget areas you can choose from and you can also create custom ones. Moreover a handy layout wizard allows you to edit the layout of widgets in each widget area. Widget areas can be displayed in the sidebar and footer, and with the help of the [widget_area] shortcode, in the header, subheader and content as well (more on Widget Areas).
Dottoro Theme provides a totally unique and extremely flexible way for creating slideshows. You can choose from two basic slider types: single and scroller (carousel), and with the help of the Dottoro template system you can specify what and where you want to display. You can place the navigation buttons below, next to, or above the slides, the play/pause button over the slides, etc. The template system gives you full control not just over the main components of a slider, but also over the look and feel of the slides. Images, videos, pages and posts and any custom HTML content can be displayed in slideshows and with the help of post templates you can specify what data and where you want to display. Image titles and descriptions, post thumbnails, titles, excerpts, categories and tags, authors, custom fields can all be displayed.
