All right, so you’ve already installed OptimizePress 2.0, well done.
Before you setup, I’m going to show you some of the basic settings and configurations that you can do on your OptimizePress theme before you start.
What you do is, go to OptimizePress, and go to dashboard.
So now you notice that there are options and I’m going to go through them one by one.
The first is “Header & Logo Setup”. Now if there’s any logo that you’d like to add, you can click “Select File”
You can add your header and logo right here, anytime you want.
Alternatively you can also upload a banner image, but that’s totally up to you.
The next thing I’m going to look at is the “Favicon Setup”. This is for you to have a custom icon that you can upload into your pages to make it appear into your browser.
Next is “Site Footer”. Now the default footer will appear as a copyright statement. So here, I recommend you change the name to the name of your website.
If you like it to be timeless, I would recommend deleting the year and replacing it the copyright symbol.
Next is “SEO Options”. For this, you can turn this on or off, it’s totally up to you.
Next up we have the “LiveEditor Autosave”. I recommend turning this off because the more you edit your page, the more space it will take in your server.
Next is the “Promotion Settings”. With this turned on, OptimizePress will sneak in their own address onto your pages. You so not want this so I recommend you turn this off, unless you have a very special reason to do such a thing.
Next up, I think we can skip “Custom CSS” and go straight to “Typography”. If you want to have a customized look of the text on your pages, you can change the fonts, sizes and color here.
It’s worth mentioning that if you want to make your text stand out, you can change the size of the text on the “Theme Text/Paragraph Styles” tab here. You can also do the same for “H1”, “H2” and “H3”.
Further down, I think you can ignore the other settings here, unless you’re an advanced user and you know programming. But most of the time, you don’t need to change any of these settings.
So, let’s click “Save Settings” [PAUSE] and then, “Success! Your settings have been updated” Message will appear.
Moving along, you can check with “Analytics and Tracking”, but this is more for advanced users. I’ve set up multiple OptimizePress pages and have not used any of these settings at all. So, I’ll leave this for the more curious to discover.
So there you have it, these are the settings you need to configure before you start building pages.
