Questions about Style Kits and Blog setup

Asked on June 25, 2015 in How To.

I’m using a style kit called Selene (from Code Canyon/Envato) which didn’t include a blog page so I’m trying to build one from a Layers Blank page (fyi, the Layers Blog layout wasn’t loaded as an option). However, I’m not able to change layout with in the Blog page I created because Layers’ Customizer doesn’t appear to be working for that page–I can’t access the neat customizer layout options for making “content” sections, etc. nor can I even see a tool box which usually shows up on the right side of the page when I’m in Customizer in the other pages. I look forward to hearing from someone on how to fix this. Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Style Kits are only styles, they do not contain any templates or presets- all they do is change the look.

    To setup a blog page, create a new page and set the Blog page template as the Page Template OR create a new Layers page and use the Posts widget. You can only customize the layout of Layers pages without an Extension/Plugin.

    For documentation on Layers and how to use it, see our User Guide

    If you have questions about your style kit specifically, you can contact the author here.
