Using Shortcodes

CrestaProject Themes has exclusive shortcodes that allow you to add specific elements in posts and pages like columns, boxes, toggle, tabs, highlights, buttons and drop cap letter.
You can get the shortcodes directly from TinyMCE (WYSIWYG editor) while writing an article using the appropriate buttons:

Information about author box

All CrestaProject Premium Themes have the information about author box in which you can show your photo (via gravatar.com), your biographical info and your social networks links.
To set this fields, go to your WordPress user profile (WP Menu -> Users -> Your Profile), find the Contact Info section and post your links to social networks.
Subsequently, find the About Yourself section and share a little biographical information.

Recommendation for image sizes

If your site has already been created and used with another theme is recommended for you to regenerate all the thumbnail image sizes fit the new theme.
To do this you simply install the WordPress plugin Regenerate Thumbnails (The CrestaProject theme must already be active on your site) and starts the regeneration of the thumbnail.
If your site is new does not need to do this.

How to translate a Theme

The easiest and fastest way to translate a theme is to use the free WordPress plugin Loco Translate. Once installed, through its panel, it will be possible to translate themes and plugins in your language.
You can also translate a theme using the Poedit software.
The result is the same but I recommend using Loco translate plugin because it is much easier to use.
