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 maybe 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 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.

Responsive Videos

This theme incorporated some CSS tricks to make the video embeds responsive. If you are embedding the video using WP embeds, then it will add a <p class='post-video'> wrap automatically to make the video responsive. The .post-video class in the stylesheet will make the video fullwidth and elastic automatically.

If you are embedding manually, please add that <p class='post-video'> in the HTML code. Example:

<p class='post-video'>
[iframe embed code]

If you want to restrict the video to certain size, add width style in the wrapper:

<p class='post-video' style='max-width: 500px'>
[iframe embed code]
