having trouble getting started with citi theme

Recommended Posts


hi, i just installed the citi theme and im having trouble getting it started. i filled in the info in the site options, but dont see any of the 'crew' or 'about' text showing up. i also experimented with adding an actual page entitled "about us" and putting the page ID, but still nothing. im fairly experienced with WP so im not quite sure why this is making me pull my hair out. is there maybe a well documented getting started guide with this theme? im familiar with pagelines but for whatever reason i cant get the citi theme up and running. 


im just trying to get it to look like the demo site and hoping to config from there. i did import the settings and site content per the theme welcome page, but it didn't do anything so i ended up deleting the pages/posts from that import. 


any help is appreciated. thank you!

If you follow the instructions step by step you wont have any troubles at all. I have set this theme up so many times now without a hitch. It's vitally important that you either follow the steps, or import the .dat settings file to do the re-arranging for you.


Also, wanted to make sure you saw the Welcome panel with more instructions inside WP Admin.

      I need to override the settings in the Flyte form area. I downloaded ninja forms and even sprung for the style extension. But every time I try to change the color of the fields and text it defaults to that dark gray. How would I go about fixing that?

      The citi theme has several issues with ie8.  Most of them are fixed with by the IE compatibility script.  The one thing it breaks however is the font awesome icons.  The icons actually appear for a second or so when the page is loaded and then are replaced by what appear to be unicode strings like f09a.

      I can't figure out why my blog articles are showing up when I click on portfolio with the citi theme.
      I have tried adding the gallery id to the theme but it's not working. I'm probably missing something very basic.
      the website is: woffard.com
      I will be grateful for any advice.
