Hello,
I'm looking to purchase the "Save The Date" theme but I had a few questions about the footer images.  Are those simply graphic links?  Or are these an active widget or something else?

Essentially, if I do buy this theme, would I be able to update the Date and Colors on the "Save the Date" calendar icon?  I'm not sure if this feature is built into the theme, or if it's simply an image for demonstration purposes.

If it is something that can be modified, will the theme automate this for you?  Or does it involve some coding?  I'm rather new to Wordpress and haven't bought a theme before.

Thanks!

Hi Scott,

Welcome to the forum!

Those images in the demo site are in widgetized areas (or in WordPress jargon, sidebars). Once you make this theme active, you can go to Appearance -> Widgets and drag a standard WordPress widget in each of these 3 sidebars.

For example, I have activated this theme and this is what I see on the site: http://cl.ly/2X253J1a3t3f0K0o0q06

At Appearance -> Widgets, it looks like this: http://www.screencast.com/t/kpJq2BXY

HTML code to show an image can be placed in a text widget and that's how the images appear on the demo site. The 2nd and 3rd images are linked to inner pages. If you are unsure of writing HTML code to link images to URLs, Image Widget plugin makes it easy.

A file named datebox.png comes with the theme and is present in images folder. It is like a blank template on which you can type any text/date using a graphics program like Photoshop. This is how it looks: http://cl.ly/2M3U2436223C0A3o102r

RSVP and The Proposal images (png files) are also bundled with the theme.

Hope this answers all your questions and addresses your concerns.

Hi is there a way to add more widgets (sidbars?)  I am considering this theme but would like to know if we can add more than just the three that are there?

Hi,

it is possible, yet you need knowledge on how to register sidebars in WordPress, insert code into theme templates, and know php, html and css code,
