  • Theme Author Ben Sibley


    Thanks so much for downloading Shift!

    Shift has a ton of resources for customizing your site and fixing errors. Here’s a list of the resources and how to use each one.

    Shift tutorials

    If you want to add the large images showcased in the demo, customize the menus, and do more with Shift, check out the Shift Support Center for step-by-step tutorials.

    Customizing Shift

    You don’t need to know CSS to tweak and customize your site with it. Shift has dozens of pre-written CSS snippets you can copy and paste in the Shift CSS Snippets Collection.

    Advanced customization

    If you need to reorder elements in the template or make complex customizations, you’ll need to use a “child theme“. You can click here to download a starter child theme for Shift and find basic setup instructions here.

    Something went wrong!

    If you notice something isn’t working that used to work, check out the Shift changelog. It will let you know about the recent changes so you can check if an update caused the new error.

    If you do ever have an issue with a new version of Shift, you can always use the WP Rollback plugin to revert to a prior version without the error.

    General WP questions

    You can find dozens of tutorials on using WordPress on the Compete Themes blog.

    Still have questions?

    If you have any errors or unanswered questions, search the forum here to see if there’s an existing solution. If not, please open a new thread.

    When posting a new thread, please include the URL of your website. I don’t always need this, but sometimes I do so it will get you a solution faster.

    Thanks for checking this thread and enjoy the theme 🙂
