    I can't seem to figure out how to incorporate a blog on the site.  I've added a section that displays blog posts but when you click on a post, you get a 404.

    I will need a blog for classmates to communicate in an open forum.


    Also I'll need to sell tickets.  I've installed woocommerce but cant seem to find a store integration into the site.

    Thanks

    Hi Joe,

    Thank you for purchasing our theme.

    The posts seem to be displaying properly now. Could you confirm you were able to resolve the issue? Thanks in advance.

    Regarding the WooCommerce, once you install and activate it, there should be several default pages generated - Shop, Cart, Checkout, and My Account.


    If they are not generated, you can create them by adding their shortcodes to Bold Builder's text element. You can find shortcodes on this link.

    Then, please  go to WooCommerce > Settings > Products > Display and select Shop as Shop Page; open Checkout tab and select Cart as Cart Page and Checkout as Checkout Page; open Accounts tab and select My Account as My Account Page.

    Let us know if you need additional help.

    T/hanks for getting back to me.  Indeed the individual woocommerce pages were not autogenerated upon install so I made them maually and that's fine except for the formatting of the internal woo pages goes fully to the top/bottom and sides of the page overlapping the header.  I'm not sure why that is.

    As for the blog.  I still can't figure out how to display the ability for other users other than a logged in admin to create a blog post.   All of the functionality of the blog is missing and the template doesn't have the ability to assign different page templates to different pages making it impossible to have a sidebar on the blog page with archives, search, etc.

    Can you help out with this?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    To each of the shop pages you can add different content, such as top sections, so it would not overlap the header.


    And for the single products, you need to create separate template page, and name it, for example, Shop Single.

    Again, to this page, you can add top section, sidebar, etc, and all products will inherit these settings. Also, make sure to set the Shop page as its parent page.


    After you create this page, make sure to add its slug to Settings page slug field in Appearance >Customize >Shop panel.

    Blog posts can only be created by logged in users that have been authorized to do so.


    Again, for Blog list and single posts, you will have to create template pages. The main Blog page should be set in Settings >Reading, on your dashboard. This is the template page from which other pages like category and archive will inherit the settings.

    Then, for single posts, you need to create a page, for example, Post Single, and add desired content to it (sidebar, etc.).

    And again, add this page's slug to Settings page slug field in Appearance >Customize >Blog panel.
