By using an (import/export configuration file) SDF Skin customizes elements such as the header areas and widgets, navigation, static link and hover states, typography / fonts (including Google fonts) and stylizes global footer & sidebar / widget areas.
You are free to customize the design after loading an SDF skin and then you can easily (1) simply export your own custom settings (to use on other sites) or you can alternatively (2) save your changes as a style preset under SEO Design > Styles > Style Presets.
To reset any SDF Skin to the the framework's default look and feel by clicking the Reset
option and then clicking Yes, Reset Theme Options and then clicking the Save Changes button.
Step 6: Upload SEOBIZZ Child Theme (Optional, Only Install after installing the Framework)

Please Note: SEOBIZZ is the first child theme from the SEO Design Framework. So, either use the child theme or use the Framework SDF Skin / Settings File but not both at the same time. For example do not use activate any Child theme and then load a settings file on top of it, rather simply customize the Child theme from it's admin section.
To enable SEOBizz (or any Child Theme), upload the framework first, then install the child theme to activate.
Remember (Do not upload if using the settings file in step 5)
Download Child theme
Install the child theme the same way you installed the framework in Step 2.

Browse and find the zipped file for the slider that you downloaded earlier and click Import Slider
Then proceed to Appearance >Widgets
Drag the SDF Slider widget over to the Slider Block
Open up the Slider widget by clicking on the arrow then make sure the drop down box says Home Slider.
Note: in the future you can control which slider shows from widget areas from the dropdown menu.
As you add new sliders, they will be available for insertion in either the slider block, or other
custom widget areas which you can put anywhere with the SDF Drag and Drop Page Builder.
Click “Save”
If you want the slider to show on certain pages or a page, select show on, then select the page. Or, alternately, if you want the slider to show on every page, then click Hide On, then don't select anything. This is the default state (like normal widgets) but, the Hide On / Show On widget feature provides the ability to display custom content on a page by page basis.
And that's it.  Enjoy the SEO Design Framework…
