Installing the Theme

We want to help you start with the right foot in order to ful­ly enjoy our Word­Press theme. This why, you need to make sure you have a sol­id foun­da­tion for what’s next by installing Word­Press, the theme you’ve cho­sen from our port­fo­lio, and the right plu­g­ins. In this arti­cle, we will walk you through a friend­ly process of set­ting up the theme in a way that’s cor­rect and trust­wor­thy.

Step 1 — Installing the theme

  1. Get the theme files by going to your Enva­to account → Down­loads → Theme Name → Down­load → Instal­lable Word­Press file only
  2. Back to the Word­Press Dash­board and nav­i­gate to Appear­ance → Themes. Click Add New but­ton at the top of the page and go for the Upload option.
  3. For the file upload, pick the ZIP archive down­loaded ear­li­er from The­me­For­est and click Install Now.
  4. Once the file has been uploaded, click the Acti­vate link.

Fol­low the top ban­ner instruc­tions and install/activate the required and rec­om­mend­ed plu­g­ins.

After instal­la­tion, fol­low the Auto­mat­ic Pages Set­up process from WP Job Man­ag­er plu­g­in, and add these three pages:

  • Add a List­ing
  • List­ing Dash­board
  • List­ings

Below you can find the essen­tial list of the free plu­g­ins:


Missing the Stylesheet Error during the process?

Most of the time this hap­pens because you are try­ing to install the wrong .ZIP archive you’ve down­loaded from The­me­For­est.

When you try to down­load the theme you have just pur­chased you are pre­sent­ed with 2 dif­fer­ent options (besides the license file):

  • The first one is Main Files and this con­tains all the files pro­vid­ed includ­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion, theme files, etc;

  • The sec­ond one is Instal­lable Word­Press file and this is just an archive of the theme files; this is the .ZIP archive you want to use to install the theme.

This article applies to Border, Bucket, Heap, Lens, Listable, Mies, Pile, and Rosa as they share the same underlying structure.
