Activating the Theme

A prop­er set­up is cru­cial for a right-foot start into the Word­Press world. This arti­cle will walk you through the process of accu­rate­ly acti­vat­ing your theme. Please keep in mind that this stage comes after the instal­la­tion, not the oth­er way around.

  • Go to Dash­board and click on Appear­ance → Themes
  • Go to theme you just installed (at mouse-over you will see the Acti­vate but­ton — click on it)
  • Now you can start work­ing on your upcom­ing web­site

Click on the Cus­tomize but­ton and start play­ing around. You’re now ready to add con­tent of any kind and cus­tomize the theme to your pref­er­ences.


Do I need to start with specific plugins?

Yes. We high­ly encour­age you to acti­vate the rec­om­mend­ed plu­g­ins. In order to do so, please:

  •  Log in into Dash­board, click on the Begin Installing Plu­g­ins (on top of the Dash­board there’s a box with a note from our side)
  •  Select all the plu­g­ins
  • Click on Bulk Actions drop-down and select Install.

We wrote a spe­cif­ic arti­cle about how to eas­i­ly import demo data.
