Getting Started

Installation of the theme

Installation of the theme

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information regarding the installing of the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

Installation

When you are ready to install a theme, you must first upload the theme files and then activate the theme itself. The theme files can be uploaded in two ways:
FTP Upload - Using your FTP client, upload the non-zipped theme folder into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server
WordPress Upload - Navigate to Appearance -> Add New Themes -> Upload. Go to browse, and select the zipped theme folder. Hit “Install Now” and the theme will be uploaded and installed.
Some webservers have a limitation for the maximum allowed size of files being uploaded to them and that value may be exceeded by the theme file. If that is the case you can receive an error that states: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. or Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again. If you get any of these errors please increase the values of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size directives in your php.ini file to 20M or follow the Installation via FTP section described above.
Once the theme is uploaded, you need to activate it. Go to Appearance -> Themes and activate your chosen theme.
After that you need to activate the pre-installed plugins:
1. WPBakery Visual Composer
2. WooCommerce (for online shop)
3. Revolution Slider
4. Contact Form 7
5. Breadcrumb NavXT
6. Force Regenerate Thumbnails
7. STM Post Type
All the plugins which are not free come under our Extended License, so you don’t need to pay for their license to use them. Some of them might have messages requiring activation, but they are already activated on our side. No purchase code needed. When using them under our license you will need to wait for the plugin updates in our regular theme updates. If you want to be able to auto update them from wp-admin, you will need to buy your own personal license for that.

Setting up the Homepage

Setting up the Homepage

To set up the homepage you must create a new page, you can do so by navigating to Pages > Add New. The title for this page can be up to your liking. Under Settings > Reading please setup the new Homepage.
Actually you can set any page to be your homepage. Once it’s created you can compose your homepage layout. The design layout is created under Bootstrap framework which is split into 12 columns grid. Each widget has its own maximum and minimum widths, so depending on that you can work out the layout for each page.
As you can see the homepage just like any the page is now 100% constructible out of the modules we have in Visual Composer. The homepage can be created by any element in Visual Composer. To view the short manual on how to use the Visual Composer, please follow this link:
http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-page-builder-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/242431
The detailed documentation of Visual Composer can be found in main ZIP archive under ‘manual’ folder.
FYI
For your convenience you can use Visual Composer Templates. We have created several options of templates for you, you can use them once you do the demo import.
this button works with templates, here you can choose from defaults, created by us,
or you can create your own templates
One more FYI
Visual Composer by default is not ON for Custom Post types that we have – Services, Sidebars, Events. To enable it you should go to Visual Composer Settings and check the checkboxes for the needed Custom Post Types.

Theme Features

Theme Options

Theme Options

Our theme is now supplied with the advanced Theme Options settings where you can regulate all the settings of the website in one place. You can go there via a link in the top bar and via a tab on the left panel in wp-admin.
Some Basic Settings are still found under Appearance - > Customize;
Site title & tagline: that’s pretty obvious, you can name your site here.
Navigation: You can choose the menu to display in the top from precreated sets in wp-menu
Widgets: You can set up the widgets into the precreated areas. You can do the same later Appearance -> Widgets
Static Front Page: Choose the Homepage and the Blog from the list of created Pages to assign their functions. You can do the same later under Settings -> Reading

How to set up the sidebar

How to set up the sidebar

In this theme we paid special attention to Sidebars for your biggest convenience and on multiple previous requests.
We have two types of sidebar: Now how it works.
1) Sidebars - Custom Post type which you build by means of Visual Composer and can insert into a page via STM Sidebar Visual Composer Module.
2) Appearance - > Widgets - > Sidebars which you build by means of regular WordPress widgets and insert into a page by means of Widgetized Sidebar Visual Composer Module.
So, in our posts for example we use Widgetized Sidebar - > Right Sidebar.
If you want to insert Custom Sidebar, you should use STM Sidebar Module - > Choose one of the precreated ones.

Adding Images to Revolution slider

Adding Images to Revolution slider

You will need to upload various images to the Revolution slider. You can add items from Revolution Slider plugin in the WordPress backend. When you go there first you need to create the new Slider, and add new slides.
The Main Slider is the one that is used in the default layout, Full Screen Slider is the one that is needed to be used when you choose Transparent Header option.
To edit the slides themselves you Click the relevant button and you go to very intuitive slide editor
More detailed manual you can find in the downloaded Manual folder “Revolution Slider”.
So editing the slides themselves is done here, but inserting them into a page is done via Visual Composer by ADDING Revolution Slider module
And when you insert it you just choose which one of precreated sliders you want to use. You can also import ready template via .zip, we provide such a .zip with the theme for your convenience.

Menus

Menus

There is only one navigation on the site – in the top, so you can adjust it under Appearance - > Menus
This is standard Wordpress functionality, you can choose from the pages, post categories, or custom links.

Content

Setting up Content Pages and Posts

Setting up Content Pages and Posts

All pages can be created as simple content pages or built by means of Visual Composer page builder. You will need to first set up the page and then add and set up content blocks. Just add a row and add the modules to row from the Visual Composer dashboard.
Now you can choose how to compose your template. Add Content modules, Testimonials, etc. You have everything to realize your imagination.

Blog page

Blog page

The Blog page is a usual blog, formed from the posts which belong to categories created by you, which have tags and featured images that show in the post listings on the blog page. The blog page can have the sidebar on the left, right or no sidebar, and the contents of the sidebar, as described above, are set under the Appearance > Widgets. Blogs can be posted by someone who has the access to the backend of the site with admin or author role. Anyway that person will be able to log into the WordPress panel and have a user profile.
Default blog layout is grid layout and once you set up an empty page in the theme setting where it is said blog, it will show posts in grid layout.
If you want to have List layout, you will need to create a page and set a template for it named Blog-list.
