Chimera: Recreating the Demo - The Team Page

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Chimera Demo for WordPress


Introduction

The The Team example page demonstrates how you can create a beautiful page with the Chimera template. Here is some information to help you replicate this page as it appears in the demo.

Theme Override Options

Override

The The Team page is a regular Page. To recreate the layout the way it appears in our demo, enter menu-the-team in the Page Suffix field in the Gizmos page inside the Chimera theme settings. This suffix is tied to a class in the demo.less file that sets the page up so it appears the way it does in the demo.

In order for this to work, you should have the Page Suffix option set to On in Admin > Chimera > Gizmos. You will likely need to create a theme override specifically for the page before assigning that suffix to it. For more information on creating theme overrides, visit our Gantry Documentation
