2.0 Installation

downloadIn the previous article we explained what can be downloaded from Theme Forest. If you just want to install our theme without need to change its code now or in future, then we strongly recommend usage of Installable WordPress File which can be installed via WP itself.

However, if you prefer to install themes via FTP, or you want to make some changes on code, then you will need main file (All files & documentation).

To clear things up, we will explain possible choices.

WordPress Installation

Most commonly used type of installation is via WordPress. To install our theme via WP, you will need zip file of it. As previously described, you can get it if you click on “Installable WordPress file only” or if you unpack main package and get it from folder entitled zipped_theme. In both cases, appropriate file is candidate.zip

1. go to Appearance > Themes > Add New (see image below)

2. click on Upload Theme

and choose candidate.zip from your computer

Again, candidate.zip can be downloaded separately (Installable WordPress file only) or you can use one from main package (folder: zipped_theme)

3. go to Appearance > Themes and activate Candidate

4. After activating theme, you will get notification about required and optional plugins. Hit ‘Begin installing plugins‘ and after installation choose what to activate. Slider Revolution and Theme Blossom’s Albums plugin are required, while all others are just recommended.

FTP Installation

1. Unpack main package
2. Open your FTP program and log into your hosting space
3.  Upload folder entitled candidate into wp-content/themes/
4.  go to Appearance > Themes and activate Candidate
