How to run a news paper site:
This part of the turorial is most important. We will show you how to manage a news paper site.
In order to do so, you will use only posts. Not pages option of Wordpress.

Menu > Pages > Delete any sample pages given there.

Then go to:

Menu > Posts > Delete any sample posts given there.

Click on :

Posts > Categories > Add new category.
Give name of your new category or menu item for website pages. If you want to display other languages than English as category name. You can choose that but then you must choose a ENGLISH slug in the field below category name.

Click on:

Posts > [Addnew]

Now write or paste your content title and message. On the right hand side choose the appropriate category for this news / post. Click on publish.
Post all your articles into different categoreis. Do it daily or weekly as you need.

After a post is made, Insert the READ MORE tag from the page / post edit menu. So that only first few lines of the post is shown in front page and linked to details.

Now go to Appearance > Menus > [Create New Menu] . Name it 'Primary Menu' and Create it.

Click on Categories > Select all the categories and click on [Add to menu]. At the bottom of the page select Secondary Menu. You can also choose Primary menu but thats optional.

If you want to display one menu item as sub menu or clid of another menu item. Then pull it towarws the right side as shown in the image below. Save menu.

Your website is fairly done. Now you only need to do advanced settings.

One of the most important thing that you want on your news paper site is to learn to Insert the READ MORE tag placement.
So that your posts summary is placed on first page and category pages. Ratgher than the whole post.

Like making an About us and Contact us Page and also putting that under menu. You will do that by creating Pages.

There will be a copyright link of the theme developer at the bottom of the website. If you want you can remove that for $20 onetime.
