Installing The Theme

To install themes with the WordPress theme uploader:

  • Download the theme.zip from the member area
  • Login to wp-admin
  • Go to Appearance > Themes
  • Click on the "Install Themes" tab, then click on the "Upload" link
  • Upload the theme.zip (note: it is the theme.zip, not theme-psd.zip) that you just downloaded from the member area
  • Activate the theme


You can also install the theme with a FTP software, read this tutorial for more details.

Sample Content

If you are starting a new site and would like to import the sample content as seen on the demo site, here are the steps:

  1. Go to Tools > Import (yoursite.com/wp-admin/import.php). Click WordPress. You may be asked to install the importer plugin. If so, install the plugin.
  2. Upload the sample content XML file included in the theme folder.
  3. You will be asked to map a user to the content and import the file attachments. Check "Download and import attachments" to import the gallery images from our demo site.
  4. Now you may edit or delete the content as you like.

NOTE: The images shown on the demo site are not part of the theme package, nor are they included in the sample content. As such you will see placeholder images for the sample content and, should you wish to, these can be replaced after importing.

To set up the social media links:

  • Go to Themify > Settings > Social Links tab
  • The theme comes with some pre-filled social links. Simply enter your social profile URL in the Link input field. For example, enter 'http://twitter.com/themify' for the Twitter link.
  • You can replace the default icons by clicking on the Upload button and uploading your own graphic icon. You may download more free social media icons at IconDock.
  • To add more links, click on the Add Link button at the bottom.
  • To remove link, click on the delete icon.
  • To arrange the display order, drag and drop the link container


Displaying The Social Media Links

Once you have the Social Links setup, go to WP > Appearance > Widgets, drop the Themify - Social Links from the Available Widgets panel to the Social Widget panel. Optional: enter the widget Title such as "Follow Us", check to "Show link name" and icon size.


Hiding the RSS Icon

To disabling the RSS or social media icons: go to Themify > Settings > Theme Settings (under Exclude RSS link section).

Welcome to my Fullscreen gallery. It is completely responsive with touch swipe support. This custom welcome message can be inserted via the theme option panel. Check my <a href="http://themify.me/demo/themes/fullscreen/portfolio/">Portfolio</a> or <a href="http://themify.me/demo/themes/fullscreen/blog">Blog</a>.


BG Gallery refers to the fullscreen gallery in the background.

To add BG Gallery Posts

  • On the WP Admin side menu, find "BG Gallery" and click Add New
  • Enter the title
  • Upload gallery images (it works exactly like the WordPress gallery uploader)
  • You can drag and drop to sort the image order
  • To add image captions: click "Show" and it will expand where you can insert Caption
  • After you're done, click "Save all changes"
  • Then click "Publish"


Setting default BG Gallery

Default BG Gallery will be displayed on the homepage or if the BG Gallery option is empty in the post or page.

  • To set default BG Gallery, make sure you have at least one BG Gallery post first
  • Go to Themify > Settings > Theme Settings, under the BG Gallery section, select the BG Gallery post
  • You may also set the image caption, auto play, and speed option here


Assigning BG Gallery

The BG Gallery posts can be assigned individually to any Post or Page. To assign the BG Gallery, select the Background Gallery dropdown in the Themify Custom Panel. If this option is empty, it will use the Default BG Gallery specified in the Themify panel.


The gallery can be inserted in any post or page. To insert a gallery, click on "Add Media" button


It will open a lightbox for you to create and insert gallery. Read this tutorial for more details on how to use WordPress Gallery.


There are two gallery display options:

  • Fullscreen Swipe = photos are displayed in fullscreen mode with swipe support (mobile friendly)
  • Popup Lightbox = photos are displayed in popup lightbox (photo is opened in browser on mobile)


To link the featured image with a lightbox popup such as image zoom, video or an iframe window, enter the URL in the Lightbox Link field under the Themify Custom Panel. The Themify Custom Panel can be found in the post edit page.

  • Sample image: http://themify.me/demo/themes/pinboard/files/2012/06/133618178.jpg
  • Sample video: http://youtu.be/Abjx1JJO1i8
  • Sample iframe: http://themify.me?iframe=true&width=100%&height=100%  (you need to add &iframe=true at the end of the URL)

add image

To change the theme of the lightbox overlay, you can use the 'themify_overlay_gallery_theme' filter in a custom-functions.php that you should create in the theme root folder, pasting the following code in it

function another_theme($theme){
	return 'dark_square';
add_filter('themify_overlay_gallery_theme', 'another_theme');

In the example, the 'dark_square' theme was specified. You can specify these theme names:

  • light_rounded
  • pp_default
  • light_square
  • dark_rounded
  • dark_square
  • facebook

Video Embed

To display a video embed instead of a featured image, enter the video embed URL in the Video URL field under the Themify Custom Panel.

  • Sample YouTube: http://youtu.be/Abjx1JJO1i8
  • Sample Vimeo: http://vimeo.com/6284199

Portfolio Layout Options

To set the layouts of portfolio index and portfolio single page, go to Themify > Settings > Portfolio Layouts.

  • Default Index Portfolio Layout = applies to the Portfolio category pages
  • Default Single Portfolio Layout = applies to the Portfolio single post page

Portfolio Layouts

To change the portfolio post base slug, go to Themify > Settings > Portfolio Settings. The default portfolio base slug is 'project' (eg. it would be http://yoursite.com/project/portfolio-name). You may change it to anything (only lowercase letters, numbers, dash and underscore allowed). After you changed the base slug, go to WP admin > Permalinks and click on "Save changes" button to refresh the setting.
