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 OITO v1.3 (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 OITO v1.3 (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.
The LINKS gadget is the one that places links at the top of the blog, under the header.

1. Go to the LAYOUT section of your blog.
2. Find the LINKS gadget and click on "Edit".
3. Select the pages you want to display and use the + Add external link if you want to insert links that aren't from static pages.
4. Save the gadget when you are done.

Pay attention to the number of links you are inserting! If they are too many, your blog design may look messy.
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 the pencil to edit it.
3. Insert the icon 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.
In order to display a post on the slider, you need to label it with featured.
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 featured (all in lowercase letters!).

- make sure your blog feed is set to "Full" or "Until Jump Break".

You can check that going to: Settings (on the left bar) >> Other >> Site feed >> Allow Blog Feed.

And if you don't want to use the slider, find the gadget on the Layout section and click on the pencil to edit it.
Uncheck the Show HTML/JavaScript and save the gadget.
1. On the LAYOUT section of your blog, find the INSTAGRAM gadget and click to edit it.
2. On the content area of the widget, write your Instagram username.

3. Save the gadget.
1. On the LAYOUT section of your blog, find the TWITTER gadget and click on the pencil to edit it.

2. On the content area, write your Twitter username.
3. Save the gadget.
1. On the LAYOUT section of your blog, find the FOLLOW BY EMAIL gadget and click to edit it.
2. Change the title if you'd like.
3. Click on the save button.
1. Go to the SETTINGS section.
2. Click on POSTS AND COMMENTS.
3. Set your blog to show at most 5 posts on the main page. If you use another number of posts, your blog won't work properly and some of your posts will not appear.

4. Save the settings.
1. Go to the SETTINGS >> BASIC section of your blog
2. Make sure that both HTTPS Availability and HTTPS Redirect are set to YES.
That's it!
