It is possible to import Hency demo content to your WordPress website based on Hency WP Theme.
If you want to use our content you have to go to Tools›Demo Content Install page
After the theme is installed, a new menu page called Appearance›Theme Settings will appear on the bottom left of your WordPress administration area.
The Theme Options Panel is divided into several sections:
Main menu (Top Menu) is located in in the header area at the top of website.
It is a group of navigation links for your visitors to find the important parts of your site faster.
Menu is responsive and in mobile devices becomes right slide menu.
If you did not set "navigation menu" after theme activation you can set it in Appearance›Menus. Here you can also make a new menu or edit an existing item.
If you want to create new Primary Menu, you have to click "create a new menu" in top bar.
After that you have to write new "menu name" and click Create Menu.
After that you can add Pages, Categories and/or Posts to Menu structure, and you have to check "Primary Navigation" and click Save menu. Now Top Menu is ready and you can see it on front side.
If you want to create an item in menu that is not a link you can add "Links" with URL "#" and your custom name. You can add this Link to the menu and make it a parent for some regular Pages. Thanks to this your link will be in the main menu and after clicking it, the user can see "sub-pages" of it.
Parent Page can be also regular Page, but then "sub-pages" in menu will be visible after cursor hover.
To sum up, if you want to create drop-down menu after clicking event you need to use parent as Link with "#" URL and if you want to create drop-down menu after hovering event you have to make menu only out of regular elements (Pages, Posts, Projects etc.).
In WordPress, you can write Posts or Pages. Pages are static. They are a good way to publish information that does not change much, like an "About us" page. Pages live outside of the normal blog chronology. Pages are not associated with a date/time like Posts, nor can you tag or categorize a page.
You can use Pages to organize and manage any content. In addition to the frequently used "About us" and "Contact us" pages, you can add other examples of common pages including "Copyright", "Disclosure", "Legal Information", "Reprint Permissions", "Company Information", and "Accessibility Statement".
