Getting Started with Omnipress

Getting Started

After you've signed up for a trial or paid account, your confirmation page will provide a link to your site as well as a link to your WordPress Admin.

If you have a paid account, you'll receive an email with instructions on how to proceed with IDX approval. Until you receive approval, your site will be live with demo listings while you get your site ready.

1. Header Customization

In the WordPress Dashboard, go to Appearance -> Theme Options. Select "Header Setup" to adjust the text that appears in the header and add designations in the fields provided. Upload your logo by following the media upload instructions, and clicking Insert once you've added it.

 

 

2. Customize Slideshow

In the WordPress Dashboard, go to Appearance -> Theme Options. Select Slideshow where you will find an upload option. Use this to upload your own slideshow images from your computer or you can select Network Shared Media to select from dozens of images provided with your OmniPress website. Click Show and then Insert on the image of your choice.

 

 

3. Other Theme Options

Click Design Settings for access to advanced customization features. Here you can change your theme color, as well as add custom colors and fonts for certain elements.

4. Add Bio & Social Media Links

From the WP Dashboard, click Bio Information. Here you can add your bio information and photo for display in the footer of your site.

 

 

To add Social Media Links below your Bio, click Social Media Links from the WP Dashboard. Add your Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn information to display an image linked to your profile. Leave any option blank and the link will not appear on your site.

5. Using a Custom Domain Name

Once your site is active, you can use your pre-esisting domain, or sign up for a free domain (e.g. www.yourdomain.com). For more information about using a custom domain with with OmniPress, view our Custom Domain Setup article.
