Waves: Create Your Content

Before we can really get started, you need to add content to WordPress. There are a few of different content types that you can create with Waves

  • Posts: Create posts using a variety of post formats
  • Pages: static posts that do not have categories.
  • Portfolio: Special post type for building portfolios

Each of these content items have a page where you can display the posts in a special format, and a sub page which displays the individual posts. For example, the portfolio will list all the portfolios you’ve created , and when you click on a specific thumbnail it will display the portfolio post contents

Once you’ve populated the relevant post types with information you can then add them to your homepage via the AppearanceWidgets section in your WordPress administration area.

Recommended Image Sizes

For best results, upload images at least 500 pixels wide.
