Notice, the original demo images are not redistributed (unless noted). Instead blurred equivalents will be imported while installing the sample content.

Fonts Used

We are using Open Sans and Montserrat. These are Google Fonts that you can find and test here

Getting Started

After installing the theme you will be redirected to this welcome screen. Here you can install both required and recommended plugins. While recommended plugins are optional for the theme to function, consider installing them if you want the full sample content to be imported.

Required Plugins

Here you will need to install and activate the theme specific plugin required by the theme. This will create Custom Post Types as well as various Widgets and Shortcodes. Some hosting providers block automatic installation of plugins. This means you will need to install the plugin manually as you would normally do. This plugin is located inside the /plugins/ folder in your theme archive.

Must have plugins

Under the Recommended Plugins tab you will find a list of supported plugins that are needed for the theme’s functionality. It is recommended to install and activate them before importing your sample content.

  • WooCommerce: To enable eCommerce functionality for your website
  • Elementor: A free page builder that delivers high-end page designs and advanced capabilities.
  • MaxSlider : Use this plugin to help you create custom sliders and use them anywhere you wish shortcodes.
  • One Click Import : Use this plugin to help you import your content with just one click.

All the above are mandatory while these:

  • WPForms use this plugin to create a contact form, then copy the shortcode it gives you and paste it in an empty page.
  • WP Instagram Widget: Use the latest version of this plugin to help you display your Instagram feed in any of the theme’s sidebars.

plugins are complementary.

Installing Sample Content

To automate the process of importing and for a better experience we have included native support for One Click Import Plugin. From the Sample Content tab, you can click the Get Started button to navigate to the sample content import screen.

You can always find the import page under Appearance Import Demo Data.

You can install it in the Recommended Plugins tab (2) or manually from From your WordPress dashboard

      1. Visit Plugins Add New,
      2. Search for ‘One Click Demo Import’ and install the plugin,
      3. Activate ‘One Click Demo Import’ from your Plugins page.

Click on the Import Demo Data button and you are done!

Sometimes altering and editing sample content may go wrong. If you need a fresh start you can reset your WordPress installation using any popular reset Plugin. Beware: this will erase all data you have and not just the sample content.

This plugin requires a PHP version of at least 5.3.x, but we recommend version 5.6.x or better yet 7.x. Please contact your hosting company and ask them to update the PHP version for your site.

Customizing Your Theme

All theme’s customizations and settings can be done via WordPress’s built-in Customizer. If you haven’t used it or want to learn more about it, please read this article.

Go to Appearance Customize and you will see this:

TIP 1: Any changes you make in the tabs below will be previewed live on the site which appears in right side of the screen, however to save these changes you need to click the Save & Publish button on the top of the bar, if you have made a change but see the button grayed out (for example changed the font size of a heading), move the cursor outside the input box, for example, to the next input box, then the button should be clickable again.
TIP 2: You can hide any customization section your don’t need to appear in the customizer under AppearanceCustomizer Settings.

Let’s take a look at the options each tab gives you.

Creating a page for your posts

To setup your blog page you can go to Pages Add New and create a page named Blog. Then navigate to Settings Reading and set that page as your posts page.

Now you can add that page to your menu to give your visitors easy access to all your posts.

In this page you can control via its Page Settings section how the hero behaves in the blog page but it will also affect the hero section of the following pages: Categories, tags, author archives & date archives. If you don’t change anything in this page, Customizer settings will be respected.

Handling Hero images in Categories / Tags

You can change in each category your Hero background image and title to your preference, from PostsCategories and PostsTags under the Hero section. If no Hero image is selected, the category/tag will default to the Blog page values, and if no blog page settings exist then it will inherit the CustomizerHero values.

Lets have a quick look at how to change the Hero background for every category. First navigate to PostsCategories and add a new or edit the category you need to change. Then scroll down to this screen:

  1. You can set your taxonomy title
  2. Change your taxonomy subtitle
  3. Select a background color
  4. Upload a background image for your hero
  5. Change the background image settings

Following this section there is a color selection for every aspect of the taxonomy hero

while scrolling more you will get this

  1. You can change the primary text font (title)
  2. The primary font HTML tag
  3. The secondary text font
  4. The secondary font HTML tag

These settings are the same for Tag archives also.
