Setup Guide

The Arke theme is available for free on WordPress.org, that means you can instantly install it from within your wp-admin dashboard.

  • Navigate to Appearance -> Themes
  • Click ‘Add New’
  • Type ‘Arke’ into the search box
  • Hover over the Arke theme
  • Click ‘Install’
  • Click ‘Activate

Once the theme is installed there are two simple steps to complete.

Step One

First, the Arke theme is designed to show a single post or page on the homepage. To achieve this, navigate to Settings -> Reading. Change the ‘Blog pages show at most’ setting to 1.

Alternatively, you can set your home to a static page using the option above (‘Your homepage displays’)

Step Two

Secondly, we need to create your archives page so humans and search engines have a way to access your past content.

To create the archives page Navigate to Pages -> Add New

Name the page ‘Archives’ and ensure the permalink is ‘archives’ to.

Under ‘Page Attributes’, choose the ‘Archive Template’.

Publish the page.

If you have completed the steps correctly you should now see a link to your archives page below your content.
