Music Theme Legend
This legend explains the distribution of content and management for the Music Theme, as seen in the demo. The theme requires the Options Framework plugin to manage theme options, and the WooCommerce plugin to sell products.
1. The Site Title
You can optionally display a site title within the navigation bar within the Appearance > Theme Options > General settings. This option is recommended if you don’t have a logo.
2. The Menu
You can manage the pages, categories and links added to your menu within the Appearance > Menus settings of the WordPress administration. View the Custom Menu tutorial.
3. The Custom Header
You can upload a logo or image of your choosing to fill this location of the theme within the Appearance > Header settings of the WordPress administration. You can add an image of any size to the Custom Header of the Music Theme. However, we don’t recommend much larger than 1600px wide by 520px high for site load times. You can change the background color for this section within the Appearance > Theme Options > Colors settings to match your theme. View the Custom Header tutorial.
4. Featured Posts
The featured section displays posts of a category selected within the Appearance > Theme Options > Homepage settings. Images are added using Featured Images, and videos are added using the Featured Video field within the post. The category title can optionally be hidden or displayed within the Appearance > Theme Options > Homepage settings.
5. Homepage Audio Player
The audio player can optionally be displayed within the Appearance > Theme Options > Player settings. Songs are added to the player within the Playlist > Add New Track section. You must upload both a .mp3 and .ogg version of each song. If you need to convert your audio files, we can recommend the Pro Audio Converter App for Mac. You cannot display more than one player on a page at a time.
6. Tour Dates Widget
The custom Tour Dates Widget can be added to any widgetized section within the Appearance > Widgets settings of the WordPress administration. Tour Dates are added to the widget using the custom post type Tour Dates > Add New Date section.
7. Homepage Sidebar Widgets
Widgets can be added to the sidebar within the Appearance > Widgets settings of the WordPress administration. You can display text, links, a calendar, social media links and much more within this section.
8. Footer Social Links

The album post will then list and play all audio tracks added to the post. A discography page can be created by using the Discography Page Template.
