Uploading and Installing Theme
Before beginning installation make sure you have a working installation of WordPress in your server, if you are ready let's proceed step by step.
1. FTP Upload
Using your FTP client, upload the non-zipped theme folder into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server
2. WordPress Upload
Navigate to Appearance -> Add New Themes -> Upload. Go to browse, and select the zipped theme folder. Hit “Install Now” and the theme will be uploaded and installed.
Some webservers have a limitation for the maximum allowed size of files being uploaded to them and that value may be exceeded by the theme file. If that is the case you can receive an error that states:
The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. or Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again.
If you get any of these errors please increase the values of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size directives in your php.ini file to 20M or follow the Installation via FTP section described above.
3. Activating and Installing Plugins
Once the theme is uploaded, you need to activate it. Go to Appearance -> Themes and activate your chosen theme.
After theme activation you will be prompted to a notice asking for plugins installation. Click the option Begin installing plugins in the next screen check the first checkbox to select all the plugins and choose the option Install from the Bulk Actions
After that you need to activate the pre-installed plugins:
- Redux Framework
- Studiare Core
- WPBakery Page Builder
- Revolution Slider
- Breadcrumb NavXT
- WP Events Manager
- Contact Form 7
- MailChimp for WordPress
- Portfolio Post Type
All the plugins which are not free come under our Extended License, so you don’t need to pay for their license to use them. Some of them might have messages requiring activation, but they are already activated on our side. No purchase code needed. When using them under our license you will need to wait for the plugin updates in our regular theme updates. If you want to be able to auto update them from wp-admin, you will need to buy your own personal license for that.
