Instruction how to get Purchase Code:
To install theme you can:
After that You will see new menu named Airlock and that is where all fun begins :-) Also you will see Portfolio menu. We will write about it later.
Best way to update theme is to use plugin such as http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/easy-theme-and-plugin-upgrades/. You can also manulay delete theme and upload new version. If you have made some changes in theme files you will have to manualy update to keep your changes.
Remember to always backup your data before update!
Here you will set most basic options of theme. You should visit this place right after installing theme.
Two layout widths:
Upload logo image. Image should be 200x160px or less(auto centered). There, are two inputs, one for light version, and one for dark version of layout. You can upload same image, or only use one. If you use theme switcher:(described below), those two inputs will be helpful.
Airlock comes with two color version, and here you can choose few things connected with this.
Choose default style file to use - If you use Auto evening/day detector this will be ignored.
Enable theme switcher - It will alow users to change theme color while visiting your site.
Auto evening/day detector - If enabled, than theme will checck what local time of visitor, and depending on it it will display dark or light version of layout. Form 6 AM to 6 PM it will display light vesrion, and after 6 PM it will display dark version of layout.
Enable theme footer - enable/disable theme footer if whole theme. Only home page can overwrite this setting.
Set welcome text on main blog page, and choose sidebar side for all blog pages.
Choose default sidebar location for static pages, search results, and other pages that don't have individual sidebar settings.
Give e-mail address for contact page form.
Code for statistics from google
Here you what will be displayed on main page of your site. ( screen below )
Choose to display ( or not ) sidebar on main page.
Provide welcome text for hello block. You can also choose to disable this block and move it relative to other blocks. Most top block here, will be most top on your homepage(sidebar dosen't count ;-) )
Beside obvious options, you can choose which category will be displayed as default on page load. One thing to note is that all your works will be loaded here but hidden if they are not in category you choose to display.
Same as portfolio, but there will be loaded only as much posts as you set.
Switch it on/off on home page:-)
Here you can set height of thumbs. For now there are two option:
If you wish to change default settings, it would be best to change it before you upload any images, especially when you use Custom HomePage thumbnail and Custom Sidebar thumbnail for portfolio items.
This section is almost useless at the moment, but we will work on it in next versions
For now here you choose Cufon font, and switch on/off Cufont fonts. We plan to add Webfonts in near future.
If you like to add more cufon fonts to your theme upload them to /themes/airlock/common/fonts .
IMPORTANT NOTE IF YOU UPDATE THEME:
Version 1.3 were buggy but still we leave this message.
This is only for users of nice addresses (eg. yourblog.com/about-me ). Since Airlock 1.3 there is change in how portfolio page slug should be named. Before we added pagination for portfolio it should be named same as slug for portfolio, so all addresses would be covered. Due to current wordpress limitations, enabling pagination comes in conflict with that page slug. So to resolve that issue NONE of your static pages should have same slug as portfolio slug. So what slug you should use for your portfolio page? We advice to name it portfolio-list or something else that best describe your use for portfolio type(paintings, hotel-list, etc.)
Before you start you have to decide how you wish your portfolio slug will look in Portfolio slug name. If you are not sure what you should set in there, please leave it as default :-)
Since version 1.4 slug of portfolio can be changed at any time without loosing any changes in your portfolio posts(no renaming files, or any other changes). Still none static page should have same slug as this set here.
Important thing is setting portfolio page. It is main page for your portfolio. You have to specify that one to give access to your works(also makes back link in portfolio works).
Another option you should check is to display featured category. If you enable this then all projects you set as featured will be also displayed in featured category.
In Airlock we use shortcodes editor. You can see it below:
Use it to insert predefined elements for your content. To see available shortcodes in Airlock theme check http://themes.apollo13.eu/airlock/shortcodes/ and select shortcode category from submenu.
To make frontpage and Blog work as it should you have to follow this steps:
Before you start anything below, please visit Airlock - Portfolio settings
To add portfolio to your blog first you need to create portfolio page:
Adding new item in portfolio is same as adding new post with few bonus things (screen below).
Since Airlock 1.5 there is possibility to use multi upload in new portfolio item and new post. To use it you have to use wordpress 3.3 or newer. Using it is simple as it uses same interface as uploading tool in wordpress 3.3.
To use it:
This tool is as simple as described here so please don't expect to be smarter. It only intends to make working with Airlock more easier and faster.
In Appearance->widgets menu you will see set of widgets. To use it just drag and drop them in Sidebar you will like to see them. Available sidebars:
Adding posts i same as always in wordpress, but with few tweaks. Firstly you can use shortcodes editor. Secondly you can add few representative posts and videos for each post in Blog post Detail - Add Image and videos box. If you add more then one it will be made slider of them on top of post.
First item in list will be used for thumb on blog and sidebar list of posts.
In posts list we use excerpt feature. Excerpt are made automatically, but you can also specify what will be displayed. Just find Excerpt box, and type text you wish Read more.
We also provide sample data, if you like to see how it is all made from admin page. If you are confused about options in theme, we advise to use it only to see how things are made in Airlock. After that, you should clean your Wordpress so you don't have any unwanted content ;-)
How to install sampel data:
Not all post/pages may work as on demo. It is caused by case that demo was specially modified to show all available configurations options.
220x220px - portfolio items on Home page , portfolio items on portfolio page
220px x auto - blog items on Home page, blog items on blog
