TIP: WordPress and bbPress users do not need separate registration to your blog or forum. one registration is enough for both, but WordPress and bbPress have separate permissions settings to the same user.

Mobile menu setup

The Knight WordPress theme is mobile and responsive.

Theme has been integrated with Slicknav Menu plugin (let me highlight this – the menu integration is multi-level JQuery touch responsive menu).

The site is designed so that left sidebar with its widgets gets removed on mobile browsers but the footer 3 widgets remain and stack vertically.

To activate the bile menu you need to install plug-in “SlickNav Mobile Menu”.

WP admin > Plugins > Add New > (search) SlickNav Mobile Menu

or install it by uploading the zipped version.

Configure the Slicknav Mobile Menu

WP Admin Panel > Settings > SlickNav Menu

Two essential settings you need to enter are:
Add Menu Replace” field. 
Type #primary-menu in the form field.

Pixel Width to Switch to SlickNav” enter 1024 in that field and press UPDATE at the bottom of the page to save the changes.

Front Page Image Slider

Front page templates include automatic slider. It holds all the posts that have “Featured” category with a featured image. 
Slider shows latest 9 posts in its “cartridge” displayed 3 at a time with scrolling left or right arrows and is responsive.

The slider doesn’t require any configuration. It pulls and displays featured category posts with the featured images attached to them.

To have your post appear within slider, create a simple post and assign “featured” category as well as add image to featured image area and publish it.
