== Frequently Asked Questions ==

I get “Sorry, we can’t find the content you’re looking for at this URL. Please try selecting a menu item from above or to the side of this message to get where you’d like to go.” after adding and visiting a directory listing.

and do your customizations there. Speaking of customization the theme comes with
