I recommend creating a few classic blog posts and 'Slider posts' before you start creating templates in Elementor. Set 'featured images' for all your posts.
Theme comes with extensive options panel with functions divided to these sections:
Edulogy theme (+ installed Edulogy Addons plugin) comes with 'Slider' custom posts. The purpose is to create simple image slider:
You can access and create Slider posts in the main dashboard menu:
One 'Slider post' represents one slide in the slider.
Slider posts are similar / work similar to the classic posts. You can add slide content (headings, image, texts, button shortcodes, etc.), set 'featured image', and sort/list these posts into own categories.
The display of the slider is very simple, in Elementor use 'Themnific: Main Slider' widget in the 'full-width column'.
Theme comes with few custom widgets (marked as Themnific).
Go to Appearance > Widgets and setup your sidebar and footer widget areas. Widgets are very easy to setup.
Following widgets are used in the theme demo:
In theme demo may be used custom widgets which come with 3dr party plugins (Top 10, Donations, Newsletter etc.).
Please see 'Plugins' chapter for more info about these plugins.

Find .json file on your computer and import Elementor template.

This theme is translation/localization ready and comes with
edulogy.pot file. File is located in
edulogy.potfile (line by line),
The filename of your .po / .mo file is crucial! Gettext uses the ISO 639 standard for language abbreviations and ISO 3166 for locales. If your translation is written in Deutsch for example, your file name will look like de_DE.po. Capitalization is also important here. For a full list of language and country codes, check out these two links:
Once you save, POEdit by default automatically creates a .mo file alongside your .po file. Put these files into 'lang' folder.
Your internationalization is complete!
Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this theme.
