"Pena - WordPress Theme".

This theme supports and it is styled to support a few widely used plugins like WooCommerce, Give, Jetpack and The Events Calendar.


11.1 Slider

To install the slider navigate to the Plugins » Add New » Upload » Choose file and select "soliloquy.zip" from the plugins folder located in the main folder you downloaded and hit Install now button.


After you install and activate the plugin you'll see the new menu "Soliloquy" , verify your license key (included within the plugins folder), if there is a new slider update, update it before you continue and than you'll be able to install slider addons if needed.


Themes addon is used in the demo.

If you don't see addons at first click on the "refresh button" and they will show up.


To create slider click on "Add New" and name it. Now you can play and create your slider using many options and features that this great slider offers.

First, upload your images. Image size we used in the demo slider is 2600x800px.


Once the images are added you might want to configure slider settings by navigating to Config.

The screenshot shows the config that is used in the demo.


When you finish creating your slider, navigate to the page, post or widget where you want to use your slider. Inside pages and posts, on the top of the edtior you`ll find "Add Slider" button.


Click on the button to open the new window. There you'll be able to choose created sliders and put them inside a page or post:


If you want to use slider inside the widgets sidebar, navigate to Appearance » Widgets, there you'll find "Soliloquy" widget. Drag and drop widget to one of the available sidebars and choose the slider you want to display from the dropdown menu.

11.2. Contact

Navigate to Pages and create a new page named "Contact" or whatever you want to call it. Contact page uses Default Template from the Page Attributes.
