This theme includes multiple plugins custom built or purchased for use with this theme. Upon theme activation these plugins should be installed automatically or you will receive a notice to install the plugin (please do so). If they are not installed, you can find them in your theme's functions/plugins folder.
You'll want to install this theme just like any other WordPress theme, either by uploading the main theme folder via FTP (unzipped) or the zipped file via the Wordpress theme upload section. Make sure you located the main theme folder from the downloaded zip file and that you are not uploading the entire zip with all the documentation, sample data, etc. Watch the
After you have finished installing the theme you will see a yellow notice stating you should install the recommended plugins, the theme will run without them but functionality will be impaired. We suggest you activate them to receive full benefits of the theme.
After installing and activating the recommended plugins go to your Settings → Permalink settings and hit the save button. To prevent any 404 errors on custom post type pages.
This theme includes a .xml file that will allow you to import some sample data to your site. We don't provide every single page and image from our live demo because it's overbloated and would be uncessary for you to have all that, but we do include at least 1 of each main theme function to make it easier for you to see how the theme works.
This theme makes use of the WordPress featured images function a lot so you'll need to know how to add featured images.
Due to the responsive nature of this theme and our effort to keep the quality of your images high, featured images used in this theme have specific cropping sizes. All the image sizing is controlled via a function at includes/default-img-sizes.php. This means you can easily change your featured image sizes via a filter in your child theme if you want.
Images are also cropped using the aqua-resizer script which uses native WordPress functions for cropping your images. This means images are cropped "on-the-fly" so if you make changes to any default image sizing you don't have to run the regenerate thumbnails plugin.
This theme comes with 2 different sliders for the homepage and they are extremely easy to setup. All you have to do is go to your theme panel and select a category for the sliders
This theme comes with support for several built-in WordPress post formats. They are super easy to use and if you've used WordPress before then you most likely already know how to use them!
The Gallery post format doesn't really do anything special when selected...so how do you add your gallery? Easy, use the default WordPress gallery creator and insert it at the top of the post (like the demo) or anywhere you want it to show! This theme has a custom function that changes the default styling of the WP gallery shortcode so it has fancybox and looks much nicer.
This theme includes a custom plugin which will register a "deals" post-type to your site so you can easily add coupons/deals to your blog. See the image below for adding your deals.
The deals will show up at your-site.com/deals
This theme of course comes with support and custom styling for the Symple Shortcodes plugin which we developed for free and share on our site.
Using the plugin is very simple. Once activated (should be auto activated with your theme) you'll see a new drop-down button in your post editor which you can use to insert shortcodes into your posts
For the contact page we recommend using the Contact Form 7 plugin It's a free plugin and highly recommended by many.
Please remember you have purchased a really cheap Theme and not paid for a full-time web design agency. Occasionally we will help with small tweaks, but these tickes will be put on a lower priority due to their nature.
Support is also 100% optional and we provide it for your convience, so please be patient, polite and respectful.
