After importing the sample data content, the next thing you have to do, is setting how & which content will be displayed to visitors via Settings > Reading page:

  • The Front Page Display setting allows you to choose what content appears on your blog’s front page. You can decide if you want posts, or a static Page, displayed as your blog’s front (main) page.

Front page: Select in the drop-down box the actual Page that you want displayed as your front page.In this case, we choose Home.

Post Page: Select in the drop-down box the name of the Page that will now contain your Posts. If you do not select a Page here, your Posts will only be accessible via other navigation features such as category, calendar, or archive links.

  • Blog pages show at most lets you choose how many blog posts are displayed per page. The default setting is 10 posts per page.
  • Syndication feeds show the most recent lets you set how many blog posts will be sent out at once via your RSS feed (located at http://your-domain.wordpress.com/feed/).
  • For each article in a feed you can select Full text or Summary. Full text means that the entire contents of a post are included in the feed. Summary means that only the first 55 words are included in the feed, along with the option to continue reading the rest of the post.
  • After that Save Changes to apply the changes to your WordPress site.

Permalinks Setting


After choose to import the sample data content, you should update the permanent URLs to your individual page.

  • In the Settings> Permalinks panel, you can choose one of the common structures or enter your own in the Custom structure field using the structure tags.

  • In this example, we’ve already chosen to use a “Common Structure” for our links but you can choose one of the other defaults available if you want as ”Post name”.

Language Translations


All of our Themes are able to be translated into any language. The process of translating the theme is a user responsibility. In this case, we recommend that you use the very popular WPML plugin.

To translate the static strings, if you aren’t using WPML then I recommend downloading PO Edit, from http://www.poedit.net/. Once you have installed please follow the steps below:

  • Open the /Ghoster/languages/ folder and duplicate the en_US.po file, then rename it to your desired language code. For example; for German you need to re-name it as de_DE.po for Spanish es_ES.po for Turkish tr_TR.po etc. You can find all the codes from this link http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language.
  • Then you will need to open the .po file in PO Edit. Once opened, you will see all strings that needs to be translated. Type the translation of a string into the “Translation” column. Do not delete or edit “Original string” part.
  • When you finish translating, save the file. This will create an .mo file in the same directory.
  • Upload the new files into the languages folder of the theme /wp-content/themes/Ghoster/languages/ and then follow this guide: http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language#Single-Site_Installations
