This theme has been retired and is no longer being actively developed. Don’t worry, it should still work for some time and will continue to receive critical updates for up to one year from your original purchase date. Learn More Here

Widget Driven Layout(recommended)

The  Clean Cut widget-driven home page is designed to use widgets for the home page layout. Widgets grant you a wide range of customization options to create a home page that fits your style and content. If you have no widgets set, your home page will display a post slider by default.

With the widget-driven layout active, go to AppearanceWidgets to setup the widgets. Each panel is explained in the next article, Setup Your Widgets.
