Diamond Wordpress Theme

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

The Diamond theme includes a powerful custom built (for Diamond only) metabox that allows you to tweak multiple aspects of the current page/post. This includes, but isn’t limited to, disabling page elements like the footer, callout, top bar…etc, adding a slider to the top of the page, changing the page background and altering the footer callout content and button.

By default comments are disabled on pages because for most people it’s not needed. However, if you want to enable them it’s very simple. Go to Appearance > Customize > General Theme Options > Pagesand here you can enable them.

The Diamond theme includes a special format which will make it easy to add a checkbox list to to any page/post via the default text editor:

Step 1: Create a List

Start by adding a standard list in the text editor.

Step 2: Select the format

Then you can click on Formats > Diamond Styles > Checklist to transform it (make sure your cursor is over the bullet list when you do so).

Diamind includes the ability to display a video inside a slider when you are using the Gallery format for blog posts or when using the Image Slider or Image Gallery Slider modules. Simply define a video for your image attachment like such (and of course you could also declare the video via the WordPress Media admin page by clicking and editing any image):

By default in the Diamond theme the page header has a bottom margin to add space between the title and the content. However, sometimes when building a custom page you’ll want to have an area that touches right up with the Page title such as a slider or row with a background. To disable the page title simply do so via the Page Settings metabox.

By default the WordPress editor hides the Font Family, Font Size, bold…etc from the post editor. To enable it simply click on the “Toolbar Toggle” button:

By default the Diamond theme does a pretty good generating excerpts for the Visual Composer modules, however, depending on how you are creating your pages these automatically generated excerpts may not be 100% ideal. In our live demos we create or posts in a way that allows for good auto excerpts but depending on your needs this may not be the case. Luckily there is a very easy solution already built into WordPress. If you look at the bottom of your post editor there is an “Excerpt” field, this can be used to create manual excerpts for your items and anything you add here will display on the site including html.

By default the Diamond theme has buttons at the bottom of every page/post so you can quickly edit it while logged into your site. See screenshot below:

Diamond includes 2 built in formats for easily adding dropcaps to your site without the need of shortcodes. To use them simply highlight the letter you want to become a dropcap then click on the “Formats” link in the editor hover over the Dropcaps and select the style you want to apply and that’s it! See a screenshot below:

The Diamond theme includes a built-in shortcode for creating a login/logout link which you can add anywhere on your site (including certain options in the Theme Customizer such as the Topbar content field). Here is the very basic way of adding the shortcode to your site:

[wp_login_url text="Login" logout_text="Logout"]

And here are the accepted parameters:

  • login_url – By default it will go to the WordPress login url but you can use this parameter to define a custom url
  • url – The same as login_url (just a fallback)
  • text – Text for non-logged in users
  • logout_text – Text for logged in users
  • target – Set to “blank” to open the login URL to open in a new tab/window
  • logout_redirect – Set a custom redirection for users after they logout

The Diamond theme includes options located at Appearance > Customize > General Theme Options > Page Animations so that you can enable an animation whenever a page is loaded on your site. This is disabled by default (we personally don’t recommend it do to usability but was added as a highly requested feature). Simply choose your preferred load in and load out animations, save your customizer then refresh your live site to see it in action.

Locating your mailchimp form action url is pretty simple. You can follow the steps below and if you run into any issues let us know or submit a help request to mailchimp and they’ll help you get the correct URL to use.

1. Log into your Mailchimp.com account and create a mailing list for the people to sign up for if you haven’t already.

2. Once you have a list simply click on the list and go to “Signup Forms” at the top and select the “Embedded” form option.

3. Now you should see a box for you to copy and paste the code. Inside this box there is a section that starts with action=”” and inside the action is the URL you’ll want to copy.

The Secondary Image Swap overlay style allows you to hover on the featured image and display a secondary image (much like WooCommerce products function by default). To enable this overlay simply edit any Diamond Grid module.

The Diamond theme uses the classname “theme-button” to create buttons so you can add a button anywhere on the site including text widgets if needed.

Step 1: Add your text widget and a link

Simply add your text to the widget and then add your button text as a simple link like this:

Step 2: Add “theme-button” class to your link

Switch to “text” mode and add the classname “theme-button” to your link like this:
