WP-Creative Help Guide
Upload the theme archive on your website.
After the theme is installed — activate it.
If you want to install the theme via ftp:
- Unzip the theme at local machine.
- Upload unzipped folder to server via FTP to worpdress/wp-content/themes.
- Activate the theme via WordPress Admin Panel.
Import Demo Content
When the theme is activated, WordPress will suggest you demo-content installation. Please do this, if you want the exact copy of our demo-website.
Or, if demo content was not installed after theme installation you can do it via Tools → Content Install:
This may take up to a few minutes.
Next, update WordPress database and login.
Add a new web-page:
Enter Visual PageBuilder mode and drag the elements you want to see on your webpage from the control panel:
The elements can be edited by clicking on them (or on a pencil icon).
Here you can edit everything.
Visit the Theme Settings Page
After you activate the theme, go to Appearance >> Theme Settings.
We’ve given you several optional settings on the Theme Settings page, so feel free to look around, change a few settings, and see what sort of site you can create for yourself.
You will most likely want to configure all of the tabs:
- General (Logo, Site Name, Favicon, Layout, Background Image, Background Color, Top Bar)
- Contacts (Phone, E-mail, Site URL, Address — all with different icons)
- Social (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, Flickr, RSS)
It is also possible to easily customize various styles used in the theme at Appearance >> Styles. These are for the header, content, sidebar and footer areas. Font families and sizes for titles (H1), subtitles (H2-H6), and body; colors for links and hover links; background gradient from/to colors and patterns.
You may also go to Appearance >> Customize to change the Site Title & Tagline, set Navigation, select what the Front Page shows, and select a Grid or Slider format to showcase Featured Content.
Add Some Content to Your Sidebar and Footer Widgets
Go to Appearance >> Widgets and place some content in your sidebar (Left Widget Area and/or Right Widget Area) and footer (Big Footer Widget Area and/or Small Footer Widget Area). This is also the page where you can place your Contacts and Social widgets in either left/right widget or big/small footer widget areas.
Be Sure to Change Your Permalink Settings
Go to Settings >> Permalinks and change your permalink structure to anything other than the default. This will help the theme run smoother, and it’s much better for SEO (search engine optimization).
