Besides, our theme supports a one-click demo install and compatible with Yoast SEO plugin. We hope that you will be pleased with our product.
To use this theme, you need to install the WordPress engine. But before, it necessary to create MySQL database and user via PhPMyAdmin for future WordPress Installation. PhpMyAdmin is a third-party database administration tool written in PHP. Its web user interface enables the administration of one or more MySQL databases. All hosting providers allow their users to log in PhPMyAdmin directly from CPanel or through other similar hosting control panels. If you can not find a link for your PhPMyAdmin - please contact your hosting provider and request all necessary information. Your hosting company must provide you with all credentials for the Hosting Control Panel / FTP / MySQL server. As a rule, every hosting company allows its customers with the ability to submit a ticket about any issue. Besides, you may check the "Contacts" section on the website of your hosting provider and ask the requested information.
WordPress Installation is a simple process, but sometimes users have different questions about it. To help our customers to avoid any difficulties, we have prepared the detailed manual about WordPress installation. If you don't have hosting, you may choose one of these: Siteground, CMSlauncher, Hostgator. Any of these hostings have maximum compatibility with our themes, using them, you will avoid various issues. If you already have a hosting account, please contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server complies with these requirements: WordPress 5.4.2 or higher, PHP 7.4 or higher, and MySQL 5.6/MariaDB 10.1 or greater. These requirements are highly necessary for using this theme. As a rule, all hosting companies provide their customers with the ability to submit a ticket about any issue, besides you may check the "Contacts" section on the website of your hosting provider and ask the requested information.
In this video, you may watch how to install the theme with demo content.
Please Note! This is very important: After demo content installation all your existing content will be overwritten!
As a result, you'll receive all necessary sections which are ready for usage. Then it's easy to change all info and images in a few clicks. This method is much better compared with the process when you build all content from scratch because in the first case you save a lot of time.
We highly recommend you perform all these steps if you wish to receive full content like on our live demo.
First, please extract the downloaded package with a theme with any ZIP software. Then upload theme.zip (in every case, the name of the archive will rely on its meaning) via WP Dashboard => Themes => Add New => Upload theme. Click "Install" - then activate your theme.
In order to set up demo, install and activate all plugins, then click WP Dashboard => Tools => Demo Content Install => Install. Pay your attention that the demo-content installation process will overwrite all your current content. Then check your content at the front-end after the demo-content installation process.
Also, it's necessary to install a demo while the parent theme is active. Please activate the child theme only after the demo-content installation. The child theme - is a special add-on, which allows you to do changes safely and without touching files of the parent theme. As a result, this solution helps to apply all future theme updates without unexpected issues.
Please note, that if you want to rename a theme - that's not a good idea. Such steps may break a theme or lead to unexpected issues. Each theme contains its unique IDs, classes, and code which are connected directly with a theme's name. The renaming may break these connections and you will lose a theme's functionality and correct appearance + you'll miss the future product updates.
The child theme - is some kind of add-on, which allows you to do changes safely and without modifications in the files of the parent theme. As a result, this solution helps to apply all future theme updates without unexpected issues.
It's necessary to install demo-content at the parent theme and to activate the child theme after the demo-content installation process will be finished. Then please perform all changes only in the child theme. This step will prevent issues with future updates.
Lot's of changes is possible to do via Elementor, but also our theme contains completely new and powerful Customizer, which has all necessary options to perform specific changes in theme, such as apply new colors, edit contact info, change header and footer areas, widgets content, breadcrumbs settings, copyright info, blog, and single post appearance, opportunity to choose a font, change logo and tagline, etc. The new Customizer works fast and displays all changes immediately in the preview window.
All content in pages is possible to edit/add/remove with the Elementor plugin. In our theme, it's improved with additional addons and widgets. They empower Elementor with the nice additional features and turn in easy, fast, and lightweight, flexible visual editor. This is a golden mean, some kind of between simple WordPress editor and modern Page Builder. It allows you to change pages fast and doesn't overload your browser during content editing. Please watch this video and on the example of the front page, you'll realize how to edit content.
We use blurred images to prevent any copyright issues between our customers and the owners of the images. If you need the images in high resolution for demonstrative purposes - just contact us with your FTP or cPanel details and we will upload them for you. Then please buy or replace these images on yours own.
