If you have a problem with the theme or found a bug please let us know by sending us an email and we will help sort out your problem.

We tested the theme with major browsers and different devices. Unfortunately it is impossible to run every test scenario.

Note: We are happy to help with setup and any bugs you may stumble upon.

2. Theme Option Panel

R + R includes an Administration panel that will allow you to configure various aspects of the theme such as the logo, color, contact form options etc and each section of the landing page. Lets discuss with each section in the Administration panel one by one, no worries..

To access the theme options panel simply...

  • Log into your WordPress dashboard
  • Go to Apperance -> Theme Options

2.1 General

  • Menu type:
    • R + R Single Page Menu: Default and for single page.

      Menu will be created automatically with the title in the corresponding section and will be linked.

    • Wordpress Default Menu: If you use R + R as a multipage site.

      Only if you use R + R as multi page template.

      You will need to create a menu from Appearance->Menus and need to assign the newly created menu as the Main menu from the "Manage Locations" tab.

      You can mix single page section and stand alone pages in the menu. This would be a little tricky. Select "Wordpress Default Menu" as the menu type and create a menu with the pages you need and for single page section targeted link you will need to create a custom link and need to provide your site full url with a hash tag of a section, so that it can be linked from internal pages. And put external in "Link Relationship (XFN)" field as a class name for internal page menu item.
