    hi, can you help me with the basics of this theme? i wasn't planning on changing much from the preview, so is there a way to import those settings?

    if not, i'd like to start with the contact page, how do i make it look like the one on the site preview?

    thanks

    Hello slayer,

    Go to Tools > Youxi Importer. Then you can import the pages like in the demo.

    But if you want to start from scratch with the contact page, just to go Pages > Add New.
    Then use the page builder, drop a Leaflet Map and Contact Form 7.

    Thanks!

    great, most of the problems are solved with that. but i have a few questions:
    1. how do you reduce the size of the title of the website (Helium)? the name i'm using is longer and it gets cut.
    2. how to expand the line spacing of the text in the menu. one of my portfolios has a long name and takes two lines to show it completely, but they're too close.

    also in the portfolio there's an option to add information like the Copyright info. i changed it so now it shows the website of the client. is there a way to click on the link and open a new tab instead of going there on the same page i'm in?

    thank you

    Hi Jose,

    1. You can use an image logo to replace the site title.
    That way you can create you own logo that fits nicely and looking better.
    Do that through Appearance > Customize > Site Identity

    2.
    Code (CSS):
    .main-nav ul li a { line-height: 1.4; }
    Put that in Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS.

    Thanks!

    great, it's almost complete. just a couple of questions: now that the line height increased, the small '+' of the expandable menu is out of place and needs to be lower. and the other one is about opening links in another tab instead of the same page, can it be done?

    thanks
