    By in Thesis Customization

    Bluehost hosting

    I was working on a client WordPress set up and client wanted to start with Thesis Theme. He wanted to do the basic set up himself for Thesis Theme. So instead of telling him everything on IM, I find it better to write a post on it so that every one will get benefit from this post. This post will help you to get started with Thesis WordPress Theme set up.

    To get start with I believe you already have purchased Thesis Theme, if not you can buy it from my aff. link given below

    Buy Thesis WordPress Theme

    Adding Feedburner RSS Feeds :

    In Thesis Theme you don’t need Feedburner Feedsmith wordpress plugin to redirect your feed instead you can use the Thesis option panel to add RSS feeds. Go to your Thesis site options page and add your feedburner feedURL

    Adding Google Analytic code :

    With Thesis Theme you don’t need to use any Google analytics plugin and you can simply add analytic code from Thesis option page. Get the code from your Google analytic account and in the field which says stats and tracking script, paste your analytic codes :

    Since these stats codes will be loaded after page load, this will not hamper the actual page load time. You can use the other box Additional script and add other codes like buysellads code or any other scripts or codes.

    Adding Pages in Thesis Theme navbar

    In Thesis Theme you can control which pages you want to show and side into your navbar. This is very useful to hide pages like disclaimer, privacy policy which occupies valuable space into your navbar.

    In Thesis Option page, you can select which pages you want to show and which pages you want to hide from appearing into your navbar. You can also drag and drop to set the order of how your pages should show.
