Huex Wordpress Theme

1.How do I add a photo to my users' profiles?

WordPress is integrated with gravatar.com to display your globally recognized avatar.

To assign avatars to your users or various admins, first make sure that each of your users has their own profile.   You can create new user profiles in the “User” section of admin.

Next, sign up for an account at http://www.gravatar.com using the same email address that was used to create the User profile in WordPress admin.  Upload an image to gravatar.com.  This gravatar image is now associated with that specific User and their image will appear next to the content they post.  This image will also appear when the user posts comments on other WordPress blogs (as long as they use the associated email address when commenting).

2.How do I add/delete/arrange the widgets in the sidebar?

In WordPress Admin, navigate to: Appearance -> Widgets. Drag the widget titles from the lists on the left side to the “Sidebar” sections on the right side. You can also drag and drop the widgets up or down within each Sidebar to change their placement above or below other widgets.

3.What are the common image dimensions for Huex?

4.How do I use the 3 tabs widget?

On your widgets page in your WP Admin you should notice there are 4 “sidebars”, one main sidebar and 3 “tab widget” sidebars. The three tab widget sidebars is a holder for the tabs you will be using.

Add 3 widgets of your choice to whichever tab sidebar you would like to use (3 are provided for convenience, you can either use all three or just one) then add the “WP Now: Tabs” widget to your main sidebar and select which tabs sidebar you used.

5.How do I add advertisements to the sidebar?

The 3 easiest ways to post advertisements into your sidebar are as follows: 
WP Now Ad Widgets
 Each theme has a designated Advertisement widget titled either WP Now Ad Spot or WP Now: Banners.   Add this widget to the sidebar wherever you would like it to appear.  In the Theme Options Panel (located under Appearance in admin),the first Ad Code field is for the sidebar Ad widget and will either be a 125×125, 250×250 or 300×250 size depending on the theme.  Simply enter your code into this field.

Non-Widget Sidebar Ads If you wish to display advertisements in the sidebar, but not as a widget, open Sidebar.php and paste the ad code in directly above or directly below.
