NOTE: This page is for IgnitionDeck and Fundify 2.0 or higher. If you are using a version of Fundify prior to 2.0, then you will need to refer to our legacy documentation.
To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress and the IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding plugin already installed, registered, and set up.
Download the Fundify Theme from your IgnitionDeck Dashboard. There are two ways to install a WordPress theme:
WordPress Upload: Navigate to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme. Click the Choose File button, select the fundify.zip file from your computer and click the Install Now button. Once the theme package has been uploaded, WordPress will prompt you to activate the theme.
FTP Upload: Unzip the fundify.zip package. Using your FTP program, upload the resulting theme folder to your wedsite’s /wp-content/themes/ directory. Then log into your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes and activate Fundify.
For more information on using WordPress themes, see WordPress.org’s Documentation.
To make use of the Fundify’s ‘Staff Picks’ functionality, create a Project Type with the slug ‘featured’ by going to the Projects > Project Type screen.
when creating each new page, set the page template as follows in the’ ‘Page Attributes’ area of the page’s edit screen.
NOTE: We recommend using the popular Contact Form 7 Plugin for your form builder, but there are many other options. For instructions on how to build a contact form with Contact Form 7, see their documentation.
Navigate to Settings > Reading. In the “Front page displays” section, check the box for “a static page.” For “Front page,” select the page “Home” (created in previous step). For “Posts page,” select “Blog.”
Fundify’s Header can be set to use a graphical logo, or to display your site’s title (controlled in Settings > General)
Navigate to Appearance > Header. On this screen, you can enable/disable your header’s logo/image and title text, upload a logo/image, and select the header text color (if the Header Text checkbox is checked).
Fundify has two Menu Locations: Primary Left and Primary Right. They appear to the left and right of the site’s Header Logo/Text in desktop mode, but in responsive mode, they stack to become one continuous menu. In responsive mode, the Primary Left Menu appears above the Primary Right Menu.
Go to Appearance > Menus. Create your two menus and assign them to the “Primary Left Menu” and “Primary Right Menu” locations.
While you are free to use Fundify’s menus however you want, the following are some items we suggest adding to your menus.
NOTE: WordPress’ Menu Screen does not show all available content/link types by default. For instance, if you wish to add Project Categories to your menus, you will need to use the Screen Options to un-hide Project Categories from your Menus Screen.
For more information on how to use menus in WordPress, please refer to WordPress.org’s documentation.
We’ve included a number of options in the Appearance > Customize panel of your WordPress installation that will allow you to make your Fundify site unique.
The Fundify Theme has three columns which can be populated with WordPress “Widgets.” When no widgets are added to the three Footer Column widget areas, some default, place-holder widgets are displayed instead. In Appearance > Widgets, drag widgets into “Footer Column 1,” Footer Column 2,” and “Footer Column 3,” to customize the content of your footer. If you need help with how widgets in WordPress work, see WordPress.org’s Documentation on Widgets.
