Attempting to modify the Panino theme for a butcher shop and use Marketpress to simply show product (no ecommerce yet).
First issue with using Upfront is with the "Main" or home page. I don't understand where this page exists in the backend within the Pages. It just doesn't appear to exist. All pages that were related to "Home" I trashed because, in previewing them, they didn't look like they belonged to the "Home" page I was editing. With those trashed, I still have the main page when I open Upfront. However, in trying to link the new business title text that replaced Panino in the Nav bar, I have nothing to link it to as a page. Issue 2 is related to this. BTW, my WP Reading settings is set to Front page displays - Your latest posts - , so thats no help in figuring out how this all works. I just understand the magic Upfront is doing with the Home page.
Second issue, as mentioned before I simply changed the text in the Nav bar on the home page, which is located under the header slider, from Panino to "My New Name" but I can't get the link to work, it just acts as if it was unlinked text no matter which link option I use i.e. Home Page or External link back to http://MyBusiness.dev, neither works. This behavior exists in the other page menus as well, same exact issue on the other pre-existing page navigations.
Third Issue is with the MarketPress plugin. On the Main / Home Page, I added a region in Upfront and would like to add the shortcode in order to show a product grid. Now on the backend with any post or page I can easily do this, but I cannot while using Upfront. When I tried to add and drop in the shortcode, well it just treated it like text.
Maybe this is by design, maybe I don't know what I'm doing here with Upfront, even though I have been through the recent training modules. Should Upfront be used only to change theme elements and not actually add content to posts and pages? This may be case and I'm not understanding. I am coming from a traditional Wordpress reference while also using Visual Composer/Uncode to "build" pages and posts. Do I simply create the region that I want the Marketpress shortcode content to exists and then modify the page on the backend?
This brings us full circle to the question, where does my Main/Home Page exist in the backend. I cannot add the shortcode to a page that does not exist.
I know this is long and 15 minutes of phone support would probably straighten me out, but not sure if thats possible. I've been through the Upfront training, but I'm stuck on a couple of these issues and I really want it to work before I give up and just use Uncode.
I am in Japan and near the same time zone (Melbourne) if that helps and I am a premium member.
I am at my wits end.
