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.
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 zubonwp.zip and zubonwp-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 optional the Child Theme (only for code customizations)
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.
When you install and activate the Theme, there’ll be a message with a list of required and recommended plugins that can be installed.
The Plugin list are the mandatory for the operation of the Theme. Other plugins are optional (Recommended).
When activate theme, you also activate the core plugins. First do it with ACF Pro (the core of Theme), and next RAMSTHEMES ADDONS. Next you can activate the rest of them.
When do this, go to Theme Settings and hit Update one time. This will do a general write of the main options (the custom fields) of Theme, then you can configure the rest of the options.
Import .wpress file from All-in-One WP Migration (Best Way)
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 zubonwpdemo.zip from the Demo Content folder. Next, a file called zubonwpdemo.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 (most bigger MB recommended size)
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 all to whatever you want.
