Welcome to UWINE, a new WordPress Elementor Theme designed for Winery Shops with a nice and modern UI, easy and intuitive to use for professionals. Includes Elementor Pro and Power Pack, which brings more widget modules ready to use according to the taste and need of the consumer. We hope this new theme meets your expectations in terms of design and customization.

Requeriments

You need to make sure that your web host has the minimum WordPress and Elementor requirements to run themes-based sites:

  • WordPress installation
  • PHP 7.4+
  • Basic Knowledge of WordPress (create posts, upload images, install plugins, fill fields, etc.) and Elementor Page Builder (Drag and drop widgets, customize styles and Options)
  • MySQL version 5.6 and above
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module
  • The iconv extension with UTF-8 encoding
  • HTTPS support
  • max_execution_time more than 180, we recommend 300
  • memory_limit at least 256M to run plugins without issues and avoid the Elementor “loading loop” bug

Setup Demo

Import .wpress file from All-in-One WP Migration

If you want to import the demo to your WordPress installation (looks exactly the same as demo site), when you make a clean install of WordPress on your server, first download the All-in-One WP Migration plugin and activate them. Now, go to Import page from the All-in-One WP Migration dropdown menu:

Once you have chosen the option, the application takes you to the Import page:

From this page you can select from where you want to import a backup using the dropdown menu:

If you chose ‘File’, the plugin will open a window showing your local files and folders and will let you chose a backup for import from there. Then, extract the zip file uwinedemo.zip from the Demo Content folder. Next, a file called uwinedemo.wpress appears. Choose them to begin the import process:

The import has an additional step which warns you that your website will be overwritten by the new backup including database, media, plugins and the activated theme. This is the last step from which you can cancel the process. After pressing ‘Proceed’ you cannot stop the import process anymore. The amount of time the import process will take depends on the size of the data and the speed of your internet connection.

Note: is important to previously check in your Hosting Service the File Size Upload option (800 MB recommended size or more, because the size of the import file is big, due to the images used)

When finished, a successful import will display this message:

At this step, it is recommended to click on Permalinks Settings link and save your permalinks twice in order to save them and generate .htaccess file.

Also, because the demo imports the original database, your admin user and password keys will change to the included in Theme documentation file.

Please, enter with this keys to your dashboard and change them in the Users/Your profile section to whatever you want.

Common Theme Installation

If you don’t want to import the demo file, the ideal is to install theme from a fresh WP installation, to customize the theme options and start uploading the contents. Use this method only if you have advanced knowledge to create templates from scratch with Elementor.

When you purchase the theme, the downloaded zip file contains Theme files (it contains the zipped installable WordPress theme file)

Extract the downloaded zip, and select the zip file uwinewp.zip and uwinewp-child.zip. Now, you have two ways for installing the theme:

1 – Install theme via WordPress Dashboard

Go to Appearance > Themes section and click Add New

In the next screen click the Upload Theme button

Click the Choose File button, select the zip file and click Install Now.

You can now activate the Parent Theme first, and next the Child Theme.

 

 

Child Theme

A child theme is a theme that has all the functionality and styling of another theme; referred to as the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended way of modifying the code of an existing theme, since a child theme preserves all custom code changes and modifications; even after a theme update. If you modify code directly from a parent theme, and then update the parent theme, your changes will be lost.

Although child themes can be a great way to add custom changes, they are most often used to customize core code taken from the parent theme. Because of this, please be aware that customizations of this nature fall outside our scope of support, and we will be unable to assist you with any issues that may arise. The child theme is primarily inserted in the package for developers’ convenience.

Always use a child theme when modifying core code. Child themes can also be used for custom CSS applications, template file modifications, and custom PHP functions and/or hooks. There are two ways to modify a child theme. Bear in mind that using child themes is no guarantee that an update of custom code on the parent theme will not require further maintenance.

If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend that you install child theme and make changes there. To learn more about the purpose and basis of creation of child theme, visit WordPress Codex on Child Themes section.

Install theme via FTP

Open your FTP program (i.e, FileZilla) to browse the folders of your server, and go to wp-content/themes directory.

Extract the zip file uwinewp.zip on your computer, it extracts on the folder “uwinewp”, which contains all the Theme files. Put (or drag and drop) this extracted folder in the wp-content/themes folder.

In the WordPress Dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes section. The Theme appears with his featured screenshot and the Child Theme, hover it and click the Activate button.

 

Activate Plugins

When you install and activate the Theme, there’ll be a message with a list of required and recommended plugins that can be installed.
