Installation

Installing our themes is easy. Just follow the instructions in the included documentation, to be found in the Documentation folder once you unzip/unpack the files on your local computer.

  1. After purchase, click the download link on the successful checkout page.
  2. Download to a location on your computer where you can easily find the downloaded zip file.
  3. Unzip the file.
  4. Before continuing, make sure you have installed WordPress on your hosted space.
  5. Log into your bare WordPress site as administrator. You may need to contact your Web host to get you to this point.
  6. Open the file Index.html in the Documentation folder where you have unzipped your theme files to. It should open in your default browser.
  7. From the menu on the left, expand the Theme Installation section.
  8. Follow the instructions step-by-step. Don’t skip ahead.
  9. On the Install Theme page, there is a section called Install Plugins. This step is critical if you want your site to work and look like the demo for the theme on our site.
  10. After installing the plugins, you can either customize your site manually, or install the demo content and pages. Manual customization is more suited to experienced WordPress users and is more time-consuming, but allows you to use your own images and content.
  11. If you want to quickly set up a full-blown site that looks like the demo, we recommend importing the demo content using the Import Demo One Click option. But be aware that this will result in a lot of irrelevant content and pages which you will then need to remove or repopulate with your own content. Follow the instructions in the installation guide. We suggest removing pages that do not apply to your site/business, and replacing bogus “Lorem ipsum” text.
  12. Follow the instructions for Manual Settings to create pages, setting up your contact form and your home page.
