I won’t go into a big tutorial on how to install and setup WooCommerce, as I will leave that to you to reference their own documentation. This tutorial is setup to show how to enable this theme’s WooCommerce styles and other elements like sidebars. I will also assume that you have WooCommerce already installed and setup before you begin theme customization.
One of the most complicated things when creating a website, is typography management (font management) because of the vast array of font attributes involved like:

This is usually a simple line that is placed between two paragraphs, images, or any other elements in a page. You can see the demo for this theme’s dividers here:
Influential includes a sidebar that is special for those who want to run their site with breadcrumb navigation. This tutorial will help you get this setup.

This makes it easier than opening a theme file to modify it with code that some plugins instruct.

Icon Boxes give you a nice enhancement to any page, especially when you have a large variety of icons you can use from Font Awesome. Not only can you create an icon box, you can also customize it with colour, size, and content.
This theme packs a lot of sidebar positions; currently at 57 sidebars in total. Influential does not have all of them activated, so the purpose of this introduction is to show you how the sidebars work in this theme. To show you a layout of theme sidebars, you can visit the demo site:
