To tell your theme what should be rendered as your main navigation, we need to setup a menu in Wordpress and assign it as our main navigation.
First of all, you need to create a new menu and add your menu items. For detailed instructions, see the WordPress documentation. In this example we add all existing pages by default and remove one that we do not want.0
When you have existing content in your Wordpress installation, activating your theme will most likely make your site look a little weird. The reason for that are Widgets that are assigned to default positions that don't fit with the theme. We can improve that by assigning them to better positions available in our theme.
Navigate to Appearance » Widgets. As a first step, you might want to drag most widgets to the Disabled Widgets position. In our example, those widgets are located in the Search position. We'll remove all widgets here except for the actual Search widget.0
If you are new to wordpress or have problems creating posts or pages that look like the Theme Demo you can import dummy posts and pages here that will definitely help to understand how those tasks are done.
Importing demo data (post, pages, images, theme settings, ...) is the easiest way to setup your theme. It will allow you to quickly edit everything instead of creating content from scratch. When you import the data following things will happen:
- All existing posts, pages, categories, images, custom post types or any other data may be deleted or modified.
- Some WordPress settings will be modified.
- Posts, pages, some images, some widgets and menus will get imported.
- Images will be downloaded from our server, these images are copyrighted and are for demo use only .
- Please click import only once and wait, it can take a couple of minutes
Before you begin, make sure all the required plugins are activated.
When you first install the MValeo theme you may want to hide the front-end from visitors while you set things up for the final launch.
MValeo includes a built-in “Maintenance mode” add-on which you can use to redirect any “non-logged-in” users to your page of choice. This will allow you to create a cool “coming soon” or “under construction” page using WordPress pages without having to install 3rd party plugins that may or may not work and don’t allow you to take advantage of all the awesomeness. And if you want to share the site with a client, simply create an account for them and they can log in and view the site!0
MValeo theme should install without any errors, although on some occasions people to encounter errors so here are the most common errors and the solutions:
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
One of the most common reasons people have issues is because they try uploading the Full zip that includes sample data, documentation… etc which displays the “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” error. Please make sure you are uploading only the installable theme which is called 01_MValeo_v*.*.zip. When you download the theme from your ThemeForest downloads it will give you 2 choices one is to download the full zip which you will need to extract to locate the theme and the other one is just the installable theme. Please pay close attention to this.0
