Setup Shaped Pixels

Front Page Sidebar Areas

The front page sidebars section of the customizer will help you configure the available sidebar positions in the front page template. Unfortunately WordPress does not have the capability to create sub-panels to help separate additional sections, so I had to squeeze everything into this one section (tab). I decided to group together similar settings, but to give you an example of a sidebar section, here is a screenshot from the live demo:

Front Page Settings

This is a small section to configure, but if you want to enable the main content of the front page like a normal page, you can. Simply create a page, add some content to it, then assign the “Front Page” template from the “Page Attributes” meta box in the right column of the page editor.

Enable and setup WooCommerce

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.
