Hello! 🤗
Hey you! First of all, thanks for buying from The Basic Page. You deserve all the love and I hope you really enjoy your new design! This is a guide with the instructions to install your theme. Feel free to contact me if you have any question or problem during the installation. I will be glad to help you!
So, here we go!
If you are using the Classic Blogger:

1. Go to the THEME section of your blog.

2. Find the BACKUP/RESTORE button and click on it.
3. Download the theme you are using. A backup is always a good idea!

4. Find your new theme file and select it. It is the one called Kolm v1.1 (theme).
(You don't need to open the file, just upload it.)

5. Click on the UPLOAD button.
If you are using the New Blogger:

1. Go to the THEME section of your blog.

2. Find the 3 dots button and click on it.
3. Click on the BACKUP button to download the theme you are currently using on your blog. A backup is always a good idea!

4. Click on the RESTORE button.
5. Find your new theme file and upload it. It is the one called Kolm v1.1 (theme).
(You don't need to open the file, just upload it.)


Congrats! You have uploaded your new theme.

Now it is time to set up the gadgets. To do that, go to the LAYOUT section on your blog dashboard.
Available icons:
Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Youtube, Google+, Bloglovin', Email Flickr, Vine, Soundcloud, Goodreads, Spotify, Etsy & RSS feed.
1. Go to the LAYOUT section of your blog.
2. Find the social icons gadget and click on edit.
3. Insert the site name and its URL (make sure that there is http:// before it). Then click to add the link. Repeat the same for the other social icons you want have on your blog.
In order to use the Email icon:

Insert the icon name and on the URL write mailto: before your email address. Like that:

mailto:hello@thebasicpage.com

Replace hello@thebasicpage.com with your own email and add the link.

4. Save the gadget when you are done.
This gadget is the one that allows you to put links in the top bar.
1. Go to the LAYOUT section of your blog.
2. Find the Pages gadget and click on edit.
3. Now you decide which links you want to show in the top bar of your blog.
If you do not want to show any, just uncheck all the links and click on the save button.
If you want to show links that aren't static pages on your blog, click on + Add external link.
In PAGE TITLE you put the name you want to give to the link (which will appear on the top bar). And in WEB ADDRESS (URL) you put the link address. Click on SAVE LINK when you are done. You can add more links by repeating the same process.
If you want to show a link to a page you have created on Blogger itself, it is easier: just select the page(s) you want to show in the top bar.
4. Click on SAVE when you are done with the Pages gadget. And attention with the number of links you decide to show. If it is too many, your blog design may look messy in some windows sizes.
1. Go to the LAYOUT section of your blog.
2. Find the Dropdown gadget and click on the pencil to edit it.
3. Change the title of the gadget and add the links you want. Click on the save button when you are ready.
For every post you want to appear on the slider, label it with slider.
If your slider does not seem to be working:
- the widget doesn't work if the blog is set to private.
- make sure you have posts labeled under slider all in lowercase letters.
- make sure your blog feed is set to "Full".
You can check that going to: Settings (on the left bar) >> Other >> Site feed >> Allow Blog Feed.

2. On the content area, write your Twitter username.
3. Save the gadget.
