How to Setup Color Schemes, RSS and Google Analytics for Woo Framework
The next step of the guide to the Woo Framework will show you how to customize the look of your website, and how to setup analytics suites such as Google Analytics.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) Now that you have the Bueno Theme installed, you will find it on the left-hand sidebar of your Dashboard.
Step 3) For some reason, the Bueno Theme is issued in an older version. To update the Theme, simply click on Update Framework from the dropdown under Bueno, and then click on Update Framework from the update page. From this point on, the dropdown will consist of Settings and Framework. If you click on Bueno itself, you will be taken to the Settings page.
Step 4) On the Settings page, you can choose between General Settings, Dynamic Images and two sidebar ads options from the navigation at the top. We’ll come to the others in the next section of the guide. For now, we’ll concentrate on the General Settings.
Step 5) You can change the Colour Scheme of your website by choosing from a range of colours on the Theme Stylesheet dropdown. The options include red, purple, green, blue, grey and brown. Give it a test to see which one you prefer.
Step 6) If you have a Logo for your brand, you can add the image URL to upload it to the site, or add the image as a file. This is great if you are a business and want to set yourself apart from other businesses who might be using the same Theme.
Step 7) The Text Title is what you will see as your Title Tag, and you can have this displayed on your Home Page too. For example, you could have WPKB – A guide to WordPress as your Title and Tagline, and that would be displayed in the title tag and on the Home Page.
Step 8) The Favicon is what sits in the Title Tag at the top of your browser, next to the text. Many sites simply have a white page, which is fine, but not great for marketing purposes. You should create your own logo into a favicon image and upload it here.
Step 9) If you are using Google Analytics or any other form of analytics for that matter, you can post your tracking code here and have it added to your footer template. You will then be able to view your websites stats and other data via your analytics accounts.
Step 10) By entering your RSS URL here, people who subscribe to RSS feeds will be able to subscribe to yours via your website and be updated with new content when it is released.
Step 11) If you are using an Email Subscription service, you can add the URL here and it will be included onto your website for visitors to subscribe to.
Step 12) If you are familiar with CSS and want to add your own Cascading Style Sheets to your Theme to change it’s layout or look, you can add it here. If you are not sure, leave this empty.
Step 13) The Post Content box is for website owners who want to change the look of their posts so that they either show the entire content without the user clicking on it, or just an excerpt. It is entirely down to the website owners discretion, but excerpt posts tend to get more clicks, as people can’t read the whole thing and then scroll down to the next post and do the same.
