Noon Template Instructions

All these steps are on Layout page (except the xml install).


1. Install the .xml file
1. Unzip the file received
2. Go to Theme > Backup/Restore > Choose file


3. Upload the .xml named like the theme you bought.
2. Social Media Icons and Search

<div class='social-icons'>
<a href='FACEBOOKLINK' class='facebook-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='INSTAGRAMLINK' class='instagram-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='TWITTERLINK' class='twitter-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='PINTERESTLINK' class='pinterest-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='TUMBLRLINK' class='tumblr-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='YOUTUBELINK' class='youtube-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='mailto:EMAILADRESS' class='email-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='RSSFEEDLINK' class='feed-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
<a href='BLOGLOVINLINK' class='bloglovin-icon' target='_blank'/></a>
</div>
Replace the blue text with your social media links. Be careful to not delete any quotation marks.
Tip: Always add the https:// on your links, otherwise they will be broken and your blog will show a "404" (error)  page.
<div class='gbml-search'>
<form action='/search' class='search-form' method='get'>
<input class='search-form-field' id='search' name='q' type='text' placeholder='type + enter' value=''/>
</form>
</div>
Copy and past the search code.

3. Menu
You can add two types of links on your menu:
1. pages
2. external links


Adding a page

Important: You need pages already created before adding any of them on your menu. If you don't have any page yet, go to "Pages" and click on "New page" to create one.
To select your pages on menu, go to Layout, open the menu widget and mark the ones you want to display.



Creating a dropdown

Two levels of dropdown are available and they are created by adding an external link.
For the first level, you have to add one underscore (_) on the link's name. For the second level, you have to add two underscores (__).


Adding a label link

Category labels are added on menu by external link.
You need labels already created to add any of them on your menu. If you don't have any, create a draft post with all the labels you want to add.

The link for label looks like this:
/search/label/Travel

If you want to determine how many posts will be displayed on label page, use this link:
/search/label/Travel?max-results=9
The 9 is free to be changed.

Important: Labels are case sensitive: "travel" is different from "Travel" which is also different from "TRAVEL". Make sure that you are using the correct label.

Adding a blog link

A "blog" link is nice to have when your theme have a custom homepage that not display your most recent posts or have a lot of widgets.
Use this link:
/search?max-results=4
The 4 is free to be changed.

7. About Me


To add the "read more" link below your text bio, use the following code:
<div class="about-more"><a href="/p/about-me.html">read more</a></div>
