Use the documentation
Uncode, as any technical product, has documentation to follow. We, therefore, invite you to use as much as possible this site. If you buy a new phone, you will probably use the documentation to discover the features and learn how to use it, trying to do the same thing with this theme. Uncode has many features options for every need, do not expect to be able to use most of this tool without referring to the documentation. Use the documentation, and you will be able to create amazing professional websites.
Most of the possible odd issues are related to Server Requirements not respected and to excessively low PHP configuration limit settings of the server. Please note that many hosts try to keep the limits low to save their resources. You are paying for it, however, and you should expect to be getting your money’s worth. These values are typically lower if you choose a small budget host. Before start check your System Status.
You can install the entire demo site, or if you choose you can install only those pages of interest to you. To make your workflow proceed as smoothly as possible, we suggest installing the entire demo, select the pages of interest, and remove the rest. By doing so, you can take modules from one page and use them in others. When you are finished, there is a utility you can use to remove the unused demo media with 1 click. You can also, as already mentioned, import single pages. This way, only the page you select will be imported along with other data like the Theme Options or the Widget. Remember, that if you should choose a page containing portfolio items, you will also need to import the portfolio posts.
Light and Dark skins
When using Uncode, you will see frequent references to Light and Dark skins. Skins are settings that allow you to switch your text color by the background and design you have in place. A Light skin setting refers to dark text on a bright background (usually used in bright layout). A Dark skin setting, on the other hand, features bright text on a dark background (generally used in dark design). The skin system makes it much easier to perform sections featuring contrast. The skin concept can also be applied to Uncode menu settings.
The Content Block is an Uncode feature not found in any other theme. We have created this unique Content Block feature to create and store selected Uncode WPBakery Page Builder content and replicate it across the site. The Content Block enables you to create sections of content that can be integrated into your pages. You can use the Content Block to create Header, Footer, Archive pages, or any part of any page you want to replicate across your site. The Uncode Content Block makes it possible to use Uncode WPBakery Page Builder in areas of a WP site that VC normally cannot operate in.
Headers are external to pages
Headers are external to pages. In fact, most of Uncode demo headers are made with the native Content Block module and are connected to a single page by the Page Options → Header tab. They can be linked to a single page or can be reused and shared among multiple pages like a "matrix" for the header layout. With the Content Block, you can create headers the same way you work with Uncode WPBakery Page Builder.
Theme Options vs Page Options
Options are the backbone of Uncode. They give you full control over your website and allow you to customize the design without resorting to a single line of code. The two major groups of options you can set in Uncode are the Theme Options and the Page Options. The Theme Options are responsible for global settings over the entire website; unless otherwise specified in Page Options. This is an advanced cascade options system based on the WordPress page template hierarchy. The Page Options are located inside every page, post, portfolio, or product single page. You can override Theme Options for single page diversification. You can read more about Page Options in the dedicated chapter.
