How to install the theme, plugins & child theme
Note: Before installing the theme, you need to install WordPress (see details here).
The message “Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again” means that theme zip file is larger than max upload file size allowed in configuration of your server. Please either increase that limit or upload the theme via ftp (second method explained in our How-To – that’s index file located in the DOCs folder, open it with your browser).
How to import demo content
To make your site look like our demo one please import demo content – the theme comes with a .xml file that allows you to import all the pages and posts like they are on the demo site. You can find this file in the Demo content folder you downloaded from the Themeforest.
Please install the WordPress importer plugin, then proceed to the Tools-Import-WordPress, upload file and import. You’ll need to import the Content itself and the theme settings. The sliders are imported separately, so you need to install the slider plugin and import the slider sample file.
After you import demo content you need to choose your homepage (Settings – Reading – choose Static page and select Home Page for a drop down). To set the menu please proceed to Appearance- Menus and choose the primary navigation.
How to update the theme & plugins
The easiest way to update the theme is to rename the old theme as theme-name-old in your wp-content/themes folder. Then you will be able to upload the new theme theme-name.zip via the WordPress admin panel and activate it.
After the theme update, please proceed to Appearance > Theme Plugins, and update all the suggested plugins.
Note: Please deactivate the Layer slider plugin before update.
