Content types

WordPress has two different content types: pages and posts.

The ISOC template uses pages for top navigation items (parent pages) and for their respective children pages displayed in the left sub navigation.

The ISOC template uses posts on the frontpage. Posts are chronological contents, mostly used in relation with news articles. Further, they are used for RSS feeds. Posts can be associated with categories and/or could be displayed as yearly or monthly archives.

The top navigation

As ISOC’s top navigation is constraining and cannot evolve dynamically, each main page (or parent page) has been predefined manually. To change the text of a link in the top navigation:

  • Click on the relevant top navigation item.
  • At the end of the article, click on Edit this entry
  • Change the title of the article
  • Click on Update Page

The Top navigation may not display properly if the wording is too long and/or presents a linebreak. In this case, you might need to change the width of the top navigation columns. To do this, open the file isoc-topnavigation.php in the isoc theme folder and edit the following lines:

$nav_style[0]=”style=’width: 95px’”; // style for column 1 from the right
$nav_style[1]=”style=’width: 95px’”; // style for column 2 from the right
$nav_style[2]=”style=’width: 95px’”; // style for column 3 from the right
$nav_style[3]=”style=’background-image:none; width: 120px’”; // style for column 4

The left navigation

Each left navigation item is a child page of a Top navigation item (parent). To add a left navigation item:

  • Click on Pages, then on add new
  • Give a page title in the first field and write your content. Note that the page title will later appear as the navigation link.
  • Under Attributes, choose the parent page under which this page should appear in the left navigation.

The sidenavigation tree can have as many hierarchical levels as needed.  However, a relatively flat page structure is recommended  i.e. max 4 levels deep.

HTML tags used for Headings

The headings h1 (section title) and h2 (page title) are used in the template. Only the headings h3, h4 and h5 may be used in the editable content area. Here is an overview:

  • h1 = Section Heading

  • h2 = Main Page Heading (Repeats left sidenavigation Item)

  • h3 = Secondary Page Heading

  • h4 = Tertiary Heading

  • h5 = Quartery Heading
