How to Setup the Canvas Theme Business Page Template and the Business Page Featured Image Slider
The Canvas theme is one of the most versatile themes we've ever worked with mainly because of the number page templates within the theme. With Canvas it's possible to have a magazine style blog, normal blog, business website, portfolio site and eCommerce site all-in-one. Canvas is truly a one-stop-shop WordPress theme. In this Canvas theme tutorial we'll show you how to setup the Business page template as well as the business template featured image slider so let's get started…
Canvas Business Page Template Image Slider Setup
Follow the step steps below to setup the Canvas Business template featured image slider…
Step 1: The first step in setting up the Canvas business page image slider is to create a business template page.
In your WordPress admin go to Pages > Add New > give the page a title (can be anything) > in the Page Attributes widget on the right-hand-side of your screen select “Business” from the Template drop-down > Publish the Page
Step 2: Now that you have created your business page template, the next step is to configure the business template slider settings.
To do that go to Canvas > Theme Options > Business Template > Featured Slider > check the “Featured Slider” check-box to enable it > select the number of slides you wish to display and Save All Changes
Step 3: The third step in this process is to add a “slide page”.
To create a slide page go to Slides > Slide Pages > create a Slide Page (just like creating a Category)
Step 4: Now that the slide page has been created it's time to create your slides.
In the WordPress admin go to Slides > Add New > give the slide a title > select the Slide Pages on the right side of the screen > give the slide a description (optional – the slide description will show up in the text overlay if you turn that featured on) > Upload your image > enter the URL that you want the slide to link to > Publish the Slide > repeat this process for each new slide
Step 5: Now that the business page template image slider is setup, the next step is add content and format the page to look like a traditional business website home page. The best way to accomplish this is via the use of the WooTheme Sidebar Manger and WooThemes Short Codes.
If you'd like to set the home page of your site to the Canvas Business template you can easily do that by going to Settings > Reading > select the “A static page” radio button > set the Front Page to your business page > set the Post page to your Blog > Save Changes
It's also important to note that the business template image slider is larger than the Canvas Magazine template image slider as it covers the full width of the site. Here are the Canvas business page image slider dimensions: 980 x 350 pixels
