Notes

Follow steps 1-7, in order, to correctly build a theme to your design needs.

Make sure Hello Elementor is set as the active theme.

You must disable Elementor’s Default Colors and Fonts. From the Admin Dashboard look under Elementor – Settings – General and make sure both Disable Default Colors and Disable Default Fonts¬†are both Checked, then click Save Changes. Disabling them will also stop a redundant CSS file from being loaded on the front end.

Click on [ ] in the top left and then [ Site Settings ], [ Layout ]. Under Layout Settings find ot option for Default Page Layout and set it to Elementor Full Width. Once complete click on the bottom left.

1. Site Logo

Click on [ ] in the top left and then [ Site Settings ], [ Site Identity ]. Under “Site Logo” click [ ] and upload the provided company logo. Once complete click on the bottom left and then click [ BACK TO EDITOR ] in the popup or click the [ ] in the top right of the Site Settings. The image below should now show the Site Logo automatically.

2. Site Favicon

Click on [ ] in the top left and then [ Site Settings ], [ Site Identity ]. Under “Site Favicon” click [ ] and upload the provided Favicon. Once complete click on the bottom left and then refresh the page. The Favicon should now show in the browser tab.

3. Global Colors

Click on [ ] in the top left and then [ Site Settings ], [ Global Colors ]. Click on the color boxes to the right of the HEX color codes to bring up the Color Picker. Here you can edit the HEX code and or the transparency. You can also click on the names like “Default 3” to rename them. Be sure to remove any Custom colors not needed. Once complete click on the bottom left. (The boxes below will show any changes in real-time except for the names, you can click on each box and label it correctly if you would like.
