I purchased this theme from Creative Market and I noticed that features are missing. I don’t see the home demo page, and I don’t see the various templates and shortcodes that are supposed to come with the package.
WordPress Canvas theme works in tandem with three plugins. WordPress Canvas Gallery, WordPress Canvas Shortcodes, and WordPress Canvas Widgets. Follow this video tutorial on how to install these plugins.
WordPress Canvas follows WordPress’ coding standard. The sole job of a theme is to handle the HTML structure, CSS style, and theme options. Any extra functionality, like a slider, accordions, google maps, columns, etc…, should be packaged as a plugin. There are many advantages to this. The most important being that if a user every switches themes, their site will not break. You can read more about the advantages here.
