Visual Composer

Visual Composer takes a big part of the Haze theme. Let's see some interesting things you may need to know.

  1. IMPORTANT: First step on creating a page with Visual Composer.


  2. To create a new page with Visual Composer, you will need, first of all, to select a special template we've created. This way you'll have a fullwidth page and you can start do the magic. Check the image below:



  3. How to select a container type (for pages or even posts).


  4. First of all, let's create a new page. Hit the Visual Composer blue button, and add a new row. You should be there:



    Hit the Edit botton pointed by the red arrow in the image above.



    Let's take all options one by one:
    • Section ID - this will be the ID you will call from the menu so you can get to the right section.
    • Container Style - has 4 options : Default, Parallax, Fixed image background and Fullwidth. Each of them will help you create the pages you'll love.
    • Background Color Scheme - this is the background colors you're default container will use. Not available for parallax or fixed image background.
    • Take padding half size - this option will reduce your section padding on a half. This option is perfect for very small sections.


    Save it and then add some content on it :). Enjoy!

  5. Columns CSS3 effects


  6. If you want to add some effects on the elements from Visual Composer you have to use the columns options. For example :



    After you've hit the button this window will show up:



    Some elements from Visual Composer have their own effects settings so you won't need to add this column effect too. See blog or portfolio for example.

  7. Video Tutorials


  8. Coming soon...

Custom Post Types

Haze uses some custom-post types to organize data. These are:
  • Portfolios


  • With portfolio you are able to add and present your products and work. There are few settings on the portfolio page :



    It is, indeed very simple to use them and create nice protfolio pages.

  • Employees


  • With employees you are able to add your employees/partners and sort them in teams. After this, you can display teams or single employees with Visual Composer in any page or post.



  • Testimonials


  • With testimonials you can add them and sort by categories. After that, use Visual Composer shortcode of Testimonials and display a category you want.


Menu

The haze menu is the same as every wordpress menu. The only difference is that for the one page purpose, you will have to use the section ID I've shown you earlier in this tutorial.



Also, you will have to do a little trick for the one page. When you're creating the one page, you will have a checkbox option to select the page that will use the one page menu (where you will use the ids).



Then you will need to create 2 different menus. One for the one-page and one for the rest of the pages (blog, etc) where you have to use just the id of the sections (first image below) and second where you need to specify the full URL, with the id at the end - that will be used for the rest of the pages - and you will see that in the second image below.






Other Shortcodes

There are few shortcodes not included in Visual Composer and that you may need to use. They are placed on the text editor of Wordpress and marked with blue color.



  • Icons


  • You can add 2 different icons : Font Awesome and IcoMoon. Use the classes from their websites.
  • Haze Colors


  • This is the 'HC' from the editor. You can use this classes : primary, secondary, primary-dark, secondary-dark and white.

Icons

Haze use 2 type of icons: Font Awesome and IcoMoon.

Go throw their website and find what icons suits you better. :)

Demo Data

Dummy data is located under the Demo Content folder of your archive.
There you have the demo-content of Haze and also the demo content for the Revolution Slider.


For Haze, go to Wordpress Dashboard, under the Tools->Import page. There select Wordpress and install the app if you don't have it already.

Here, select the .xml file and install the demo data. Now you are done! :)

For Revolution Slider, you have to go to its admin panel, and hit Import Slider button.




WPML Support

Haze offers support for WPML plugin. Be aware that this plugin is not provided by us, and you will have to buy it in order to use it : WPML Official.

  • Using .mo/.po files

  • Our theme provide .mo/.po language files in the /lang folder of the theme and you can use these files on WPML plugin. To use translation from a .mo file, choose the first option from the theme localization menu. The only thing that you need to specify is the text-domain that is 'haze' for our theme. You need to enter this value in the text domain field, so that WPML can load the translation file and assign it to the theme.

  • Translating the theme from within WPML

  • When WPML localization is selected (the 2nd option in the image above), WPML will scan the theme and find the texts that can be translated. It reports what it finds and let you enter translations, right from within WordPress.

    Click on Scan the theme for strings and WPML will go through all the files in the active theme and get translatable texts from them (texts that are wrapped with gettext functions).




    It shows how many strings were found in the theme and their translation status. To translate them, click on View strings that need translation. This will take you to the String translation page, where you can enter translation for each of the texts found in the theme.
