To use our themes, you must be running:

  • WordPress 3.1 or higher
  • PHP5.4 or higher
  • and mysql 5 or higher

Many issues that you may run into such as: white screen, demo content fails when importing and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

  • max_execution_time 180
  • memory_limit 128M
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

We have tested it with Mac, Windows and Linux. Below is a list of items you should ensure your host can comply with:

  • Check to ensure that your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress.
  • Always make sure they are running the latest version of WordPress.
  • You can download the latest release of WordPress from official WordPress website.
  • Always create secure passwords for FTP and Database.

If you are not able to increase server limits you can try to switch temporarily to a default WP theme which is much simpler and switch back afterwords.

Repeat the import process several times until you get the pages imported.

If you are using cheap Godaddy hosting, once you get to the Internal Server Error page that means that your script has timed out. Go back and import the xml file again, several times until you get All done message.

 

Don’t worry, media and the content already imported won’t be duplicated.

Only menu items may be duplicated but you can sort that out manually quickly.

From the file menu, save file with your language name e.g de_DE.po. It will generate both a .po and .mo file for your translation.

Go to Admin/Settings/General and select Site Language. In our example select Deutsch.

Make sure to make a copy of the generated files before you update the theme.

In order to be able to import Custom Icons in Ultimate Addons you need to have ZipArchive enabled on your server. Please check this answer for a way to check if ZipArchive is enabled on your server here

All premium plugins are included and updated with the theme.

In order to activate premium plugins you need to purchase a separate licence for each plugin. We do not recommend that.

You also don’t need to have the latest versions of the premium plugins in order for the theme to work properly. We check how premium plugins work together and with the theme before we include them in the theme update.

If you are using Petal, Care, School Time or Senior theme, you have available this option. Layout blocks are separate Header and Footer sections of your site where you can insert any Visual Composer element.

With the demo you get two layout blocks Top Bar and Footer that we have already created for you and after installation you can set that Layout Blocks under Theme Options / General Settings.

Editing Layout Blocks as well as adding new ones can be done thru your admin panel where you can change its content and also create different layout.

For Top Bar Layout Block we have also created different layout for desktop and tablet view and you can tell the difference if you look rows in VC editing mode – rows for tablet view have faded look, so you have to edit the content for all four rows. To prevent element from appearing on certain view, edit the column where element is located and under column settings, select responsive options tab. There you have option to hide it on some devices.

This powerful feature you can use for all pages, but you can also add more Header and Footer blocks and assign them just for certain pages which will override default blocks that you have set under General Settings. Open the page where you want to have different header or footer and at the bottom of the page, you can select that new Top Bar or Footer Layout block.

This way you get completely customizable Top Bar and Footer, you choose elements from Visual Composer you want to use, you choose their layout, how anw when they will appear on tablet and desktop and at the end different Top Bar and Footer for different pages.

Layer Slider

In order to be able to import Layer Slider demos you need to have ZipArchive enabled on your server. To check if ZipArchive is enabled go to Admin/Layer Slider WP and click on “Import/Export” tab. In the right corner you should see a message “ZipArchive is available to import/export images” if ZipArchive is enabled.

Layer Slider VC widget tries to display the slider with specific ID. If your slider ID  is different than the slider will not show. This usually happen if you already have some sliders installed before you import our demo slider or first import default Layer Slider demo by mistake.

You need to edit Layer Slider widget on the page in question, re-select the slider and save.
