Fonts Used

We are using IBM Plex Serif and Poppins. These are Google Fonts that you can find and test there
You can change fonts from Customize→Global→Typography.

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 the 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
  • GutenBee: A free set of awesome Gutenberg blocks 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.
  • Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order : Use this plugin to help you order your taxonomies via drag and drop

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.

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 changing 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 you don’t need to appear in the customizer under Appearance→Customizer Settings.

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


Global section will allow you to control the layout, colors, and typography that will apply everywhere in the theme:


Let’s have a look at each option this section provides:

  1. Apply a full width or boxed container for all content.
  2. Control the inner full content width.
  3. Control the content width from (1 to 12). For example, 8 means that your content width will have the 8/12 of your Inner Site Width while the other will be reserved for the sidebar.
  4. Change the sidebar width. 5 means that your content width will have the 5/12 of your Inner Site Width while the other will be reserved for the main content.

Creating a Timetable for your Classes step by step

Lets start by creating some Time slots for our Classes. Navigate to Classes→Time Slots and create a new item that we will call Day 1 (since it will behave as our first day for this class). Then create some child Time slots for our Day 1 item that will have a time format, so even if they are not actually time objects they will look like 8:00, 9:00, 10:00 etc. Then create some Trainers from Trainers→Add New.  Finally, create some class items and select for each a Time Slot (from the Day 1 parent taxonomy), and add a Trainer. After creating a series of Classes, we can easily display our content as a conference table using the [timetable] shortcode on any page we want to.
