  1. In the left Admin bar, hover Mapify and click “Maps. In the Maps screen, click “New Map”.

  3. Click “Maps” again, copy the shortcode and paste it in the Post’s text box “Route Map Shortcode”. . Click Publish/Update.
  4. In the left Admin Bar, hover Pretty Routes and click “Routes” then Add New. Title the Route. In the “Map” drop down, select the map you want the route to appear on.  Input the Route Color (#D01362).
  5. Under “Route” you can search for the area you want to start the route. Once there, use the “A” pin to start the route by selecting it and double clicking the start or dragging it to the start. Use the “<< >>” pin to create up to 8 waypoints to guide the route. The Pins are NOT for creating lightbox galleries launched clicking the pins. They are just to create your route or to display tooltips.  The “B” pin denotes the end of the route. The pins can be hidden by selecting NO in the Display Tooltips dropdown. Turning on/off Tooltips is an option. Each waypoint can have a unique custom pin. . Click Publish/Update.
  6. Go back to Mapify Pro and click “Map Locations” then “Add New”. From the list, select the Map you want the location to appear on. You can turn tooltips on/off and assign a custom pin image. Add Images that were taken at the location. Double click the location on the map to drop a pin. . Click Publish/Update.
  7. Go back to the Map you created and above the map, there is a dropdown menu where you can select the main location that the map will center on. Adjust the zoom in the map. . Click Publish/Update.


Adding Advertisements

There are two types of advertisements in your theme. One is built into the theme on static pages (such as the home page) and ones placed by you the user where you want them within your article’s content.

Ads Built Into the Theme

  1. In the admin menu, select ADVANCED ADS/ADS. Here you can create a new ad or place an existing ad.
  2. For a brand new ad, click NEW AD and give it a title. It may be a good idea to name the ad in a way that you know where it is place in case you choose to just edit the ad’s content and name for the same placement. An example is “home north westy”.
  3. For the AD TYPE setting, select IMAGE AD. Then SELECT the image by either choosing it in you Media Gallery, or adding it to your Media Gallery. Under SELECT IMAGE, paste the url for where you want the user to go if they click on the ad.
  4. Under LAYOUT/OUTPUT enter the ID name of the ad. This will also be the id you will put in the side-sticky menu so that the user can scroll directly to the add. An example is “northwesty”. Also input “site-ad” and “section” in the CLASS field. Separate them with a space. Now click PUBLISH.
  5. Click ADVANCED ADS/PLACEMENTS. Once there, click NEW PLACEMENT. Under CHOOSE NEW PLACEMENT TYPE select the one all the way to the left called “Manual Placement”. Name the Placement lo location such as “Home Page Below Shop”. Then for CHOOSE AN AD GROUP, simply select the ad your placing. Click SAVE NEW PLACEMENT.
  6. In the PLACEMENTS window, click SHOW PLACEMENT under the ad you are placing. This will expose the SHORTCODE. Copy the shortcode.
  7. Go to the Page you want to place the ad on. Scroll down to the WYSIWYG box labelled as the location you want to place the ad. Paste the shortcode you copied from step 5. Click UPDATE.
  8. Check the page and make sure the ad is where you want it and is the image you wanted. Click it and make sure the link works.
  9. In the ADMIN menu click APPEARANCE/MENUS. Next to SELECT A MENU TO EDIT select the menu for the page that the ad is on. For example, if the ad is on the home page’s side-sticky-menu, you would select HOME STICKY MENU. From here you can add a menu item or just edit one you are changing. You must have the label that will appear in the menu and the link will be the site URL/# followed by the ID you put in the ad’s LAYOUT/OUTPUT box. It will look like: #northwesty
  10. Test the side sticky menu top make sure it works.

Once an ad is set up and you have the placement shortcode, you can paste onto any page with ad fields. For example, the same shortcode pasted into an ad field on the Home Page, can be pasted on the Blog Page. Just keep in mind, when that ad is edited, it will edit both.
