The InfoWay theme is designed for blogging enthusiasts – those who write creative material and are keen to share their experience with an audience. Let’s have a look at InfoWay’s various features.
Top Notification Bar (Infobar)
Use the Infobar to alert your readers to your most important messages or announcements. Provide a link in the Customizer, and users can be directed to another page or post for more information.
The slider allows you to feature certain posts prominently on your front page, whether it holds your blog posts, or a static page. Up to five posts can be highlighted, each with their title boldly displayed beside their Featured Image.
Many popular social icons, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn, are included with InfoWay. Simply enter your profile link in the Customizer, and the icons will automatically display in the Infobar at the top of the site.
InfoWay includes a feature to place contact information prominently in the header, allowing maximum engagement with your users.
InfoWay is responsive, meaning its layout adapts for maximize usability on many different screen sizes. Everything, including images, the slider, and menus, will look their best regardless of the device on which it’s being viewed.
Different Color and Font Options
With the purchase of the Custom Design upgrade on WordPress.com, InfoWay can be further crafted as your own unique home on the Web, with custom fonts, colors and CSS.
InfoWay is a clean, simple, and responsive theme focussed on blogging. It includes a slider, and multiple highlighted text areas for notifications and other featured messages. Social icons allow links to your most important accounts. Directions for implementing each of these features can be found below.
Displaying your content with images in the slider is very easy. Follow these simple steps.
- First, define the tag our slider will use to populate the slider. Go to Appearance → Customize → Featured Content and add your tag name. If the tag you define doesn’t yet exist, it will be created for you.
- Create a post.
- Fill in the heading and content.
- Set your Featured Image.
- Set the slider tag under the Tags option.
Remember, the size of the image should be 950px x 363px.
Likewise, you can set any of your existing posts in the slider. You just need to edit that post, set the Featured Image, add the slider tag and you can display it in the slider.
Various social icons are available in the theme. You can easily show them on your website and redirect the users to your desired social page. From the admin panel, go to Appearance → Customize → Theme to set your social links, and their icons will display on your website.
