Getting Started

WordPress Information

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. Below are all the useful links for WordPress information.

PLEASE NOTE! The theme is designed for free WordPress version downloaded at WordPress.org. We do not guarantee the theme full compatibility with installations on WordPress.com due to limitations in website control and theme customization.

Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running at least WordPress 3.9, PHP5, mysql 5 or higher. If you use low-end hosting with limited resources (e.g. GoDaddy!), you may experience issues with “one-click” demo data installation feature.
We recommend that you contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server PHP configuration limits are as follows:

max_execution_time 600

memory_limit 128M

post_max_size 32M

upload_max_filesize 32M

If you are running unmanaged dedicated server or VPS, you should check your php.ini file. Alternatively, you can edit .htaccess file in the root of your website and add the following values:

php_value max_execution_time 600

php_value memory_limit 128M

php_value post_max_size 32M

php_value upload_max_filesize 32M

Setting these values will ensure you will not get error messages during the installation. To safeguard your website, please use secure passwords and the latest version of WordPress and plugins.

unzipped theme

If you try to install the wrong files, you will get missing styles.css file error. This is the most common error that means you are trying to install an incorrect package.

To install the theme, you must have WordPress installed. Check this link for more information.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend updating your WordPress to the latest stable version. This will help utilizing all of the latest features of WordPress.

PLEASE NOTE! The theme is designed for free WordPress version downloaded at WordPress.org. We do not guarantee the theme full compatibility with installations on WordPress.com due to limitations in website control and theme customization.

If you have questions regarding the theme installation, we recommend reading the detailed instruction below.

There are 2 ways to install the theme:

    • via FTP:
        1. Log into your web server with FTP client software.
        1. Unzip the adrena.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /adrena theme folder.
        1. Upload the extracted adrena theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder.
      1. Navigate to the Appearance > Themes tab and activate the theme.
  • via WordPress:
      1. Login to admin panel.
      1. Navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on the Add New button.
      1. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse…(Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select the “adrena.zip” and click Install Now button.
      1. After the successful installation, click on Activate or navigate to the Appearance > Themes and click on Activate button to activate the newly installed theme.
      1. Once the theme is activated, you will be prompted to install the required ThemeREX Addons and the other recommended plugins, if any. It might be (but not always should) Instagram Feed or MailChimp for WP (in case they are included), for example.

        All these plugins are included into the theme archive, or can be installed from the WordPress.org repository.
        The theme can function without the recommended plugins. To make your website look more similar to the demo page, you may need to install the recommended plugins and import the demo content.
        However, if you have an existing website, you should be very careful with plugins installation and importing demo data: this may affect an entire website’s content, it’s look, behavior and structure. Please refer to the Demo Content section for more details.

      1. As a final step – the new menu item Appearance > ThemeREX Addons should appear in the WordPress Dashboard menu.
    1. IMPORTANT! If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend activating a child theme before demo data installation. Please see the Child Theme section for more information.

Plug-ins Installation

To make the theme look more similar to the demo page, you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link.

Alternatively, you can use Appearance > Install Plugins menu that redirects to the plug-ins installation page. Check all the listed plug-ins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take a few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.

Plug-ins activation should be done in the same way. Navigate to Appearance > Install Plugins menu, check all the listed plug-ins, choose Activate option and click on Apply button.

IMPORTANT! Please be aware that there is only one required (mandatory) plug-in for proper theme functioning which is “ThemeREX Addons.” The rest of the plug-ins are recommended for installation, but not required.
In case you are running a shared hosting (e.g. GoDaddy) with limited resources, we do recommend to enable only the essential plug-ins (the ones you need) and disable the rest if any. Otherwise, it may significantly increase memory (RAM) consumption, which might lead to unwanted issues.

Available plug-ins:

    • Contact Form 7
    • Contact Form 7 Datepicker
    • Essential Grid
    • MailСhimp for WordPress
    • Slider Revolution
    • ThemeREX Addons
    • WooCommerce
    • WPBakery Page Builder

SUCCESS! The “Success” message appears after plugins successful installation.

Child Theme

Child theme is for developers willing to make changes to core functions and code. If you are not planning to dig that deep, you can just skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT! If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend to install a child theme and apply changes there. To learn more about that, please visit the WordPress Codex website.

In the theme’s package you can find all the necessary files for the child theme. The installation of a child theme is similar to the main theme.

A few recommendations on how to use a Child Theme:

  • Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in a child theme. It does not concern only .php-files with templates and basic logic, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc.
  • If you want to change some theme-related functions or add new ones, copy/add all the required functions into functions.php file in the adrena-child folder. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme logics.

    PLEASE NOTE! If you want to replace some functions from other files (except functions.php), e.g. from _wp_utils.php or _utils.php, we do not recommend you to copy respective files into the child theme, but you should create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be done, so that when updating the theme, new functions from these files are available for use.
    As for other files – put out the templates from the folder ‘templates’, images from the folder ‘images’ etc. – to make changes copy theme into the folder ‘child theme’ and make changes there.

Demo Content

Our theme includes a simple One click demo data import tool. It allows getting a copy of our demo website in just 1 click.
Nevertheless, it also allows choosing whether to install the “whole demo-site content” or just certain pages, forms, sliders etc.

Before installing demo data, please make sure you have installed all the required plugins, check the Plugins installation section for more information.

IMPORTANT! When installing demo-data, ALL THE EXISTING CONTENTS of your website will be deleted and replaced with the new data! We do recommend to install demo data on fresh WordPress.

To import demo content into a WordPress site, please follow these steps:

    1. Log in to your site as an administrator.
    1. Navigate to Appearance > Install Demo Data:
install demo menu
    1. On the page that showed up set the required parameters.
    1. Click on “Start import” button.

      PLEASE NOTE It may take a while for demo data to be copied from our server to your site. It depends significantly on the Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.

  1. SUCCESS! The “Success” message appears after demo data successful installation. Treat the screenshot below as an example. Included plugins and some of the options may vary.

    IMPORTANT! In case “Demo Data” installation stuck, you can manually install it by downloading the demo.zip archive from our server and extract it in your Theme’s folder root directory. If the issue persists, please contact your hosting provider to make sure that your server configuration meets the Theme Requirements. Otherwise, please refer your request to our support department.

Theme Update

This step is required if you received the notification that a new version of the theme is available. You can see this information in Changelog section at the bottom of the item’s details page.

IMPORTANT! Before you go ahead with the update make sure you backup your old theme’s folder. Download it to your computer locally.

It is a good practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates.

Update Option 1. Update using WordPress uploader

    1. Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to “Downloads” tab. Find the theme and download “Installable WordPress file only”.
theme update
    1. Log into your WordPress website and go to Appearance > Themes.
    1. Activate a different theme. Delete the previous version of adrena and re-upload the new WordPress Installable files that you have downloaded from ThemeForest during the 1st step.
    1. Once it is uploaded, activate the theme.
  1. Update (if necessary!) the included plugins, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.
      • Navigate to WP Dashboard > Plugins > Installed Plugins.
      • Deactivate and delete the plugin(s) of old version.
      • Go to Appearance > Install Plugins and install the plugin(s) like it was described in the Plugins Installation section of this documentation.

Update Option 2. Update using FTP client

    1. Log into your ThemeForest account and get the last version of the theme as described above.
    1. Connect to your server using desktop client software (we recommend CyberDuck and Filezilla).
    1. Change directory to /wp-content/themes.
    1. Remove existing folder with old theme files.
    1. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from ThemeForest and upload to the theme folder.
  1. Update (if necessary!) the included plugins as it was described above, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.

Quick Start

After the theme activation and demo content import, we are ready to get started with basic theme settings like site title, tagline, logo, favicon etc.

To change your site title and tagline go to Settings > General. Please note, these parameters are important for search engines.

Another great idea may be setting custom permalinks structure to make them more SEO friendly and human-readable. Go to Settings > Permalinks and make changes according to the example below.
