How do I install the theme?

To install new theme you must first have a working WordPress installation. For information on installing WordPress, please see Installing WordPress, from the WordPress Codex. Once WordPress has been properly setup, there are two ways you can install new theme – from your WordPress Administration Panel or Manually via FTP. Please refer to theme installation instructions.

How do I update my theme?

Please refer to theme installation instructions for updating your theme.

The update process is similar to the theme installation process. You will need to replace the old theme using the FTP instructions, or delete the old theme from the Appearance > Themes screen, then follow the installation instructions to upload the latest version of the theme.

Please Note: If you have made any custom changes to the theme code, make a backup of your existing theme and save it to your computer before updating.

How do I customize my theme?

All of the themes are equipped with Theme Options Panel which will allow you to easily customize your website. Please see:

Go to Appearance > Theme Options to start. Don’t forget to click on Save All Changes to save your settings once you are finished.

Can you help me customize my site?

We cannot offer you an extensive help in terms of modifications. If you are asking for help with modifications, which only involves issuing few lines of code, then we will be glad to assist you. Nonetheless, if your inquiry requires more than that amount of code to be published, we can only provide guidance and you would then need to hire a customizer.
