Installation Process

There are two ways to upload any theme to the WordPress site: the Admin panel and FTP. The most recommended way is uploading via the Admin panel. However, sometimes there may be a size limitation for files uploaded. That is why this manual provides both ways:

Way 1. Upload Theme through WordPress Admin panel

Locate the woodmart.zip file and sign in to your WordPress Dashboard (e.g., ). Go to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload, and select the file, then click “Install Now“. Once the theme is uploaded, you will need to activate it in Appearance > Themes.

  1. Sign in to your admin panel at yourdomain.com/wp-admin
  2. Navigate to Appearance > Themes > Add New -> Upload theme
  3. Choose woodmart.zip file
  4. Wait while the theme is uploading, install and activate it.

Make sure the ZIP file contains only folders and files of the theme and not the inner additional ZIP.

Way 2. Upload Theme with FTP

You need to upload the theme zip file to your-site.com/wp-content/themes folder and unzip it. You can use your web-hosting control panel (cPanel, ISPManager, etc.) or you can connect to your server through the FTP client like FileZilla and upload the already unzipped WoodMart folder:

  • Connect to your hosting (server) via an FTP client
  • Upload your theme folder to your-site.com/wp-content/themes folder
  • Login to your WordPress Dashboard and go to Appearance > Themes and activate the theme.
  • Open your site and check if everything is okay.

 

Step-by-step theme installation wizard

As soon as the WoodMart theme has been installed and activated correctly, a step-by-step wizard appears, suggesting six tabs: “Activation”, “Child theme”, “Page builder”, “Plugins”, “Demo”, “Done”.

Activation

In order to get the option for the automatic update, you need to activate your theme license.

How to find your purchase code

  1. Log into your Envato Market account.
  2. Hover the mouse over your username at the top of the screen.
  3. Click “Downloads” from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click ‘License certificate & purchase code’ (available as PDF or text file).

WoodMart theme license can be activated on two domains for one and the same site: on the staging for testing purposes and on the live domain. Multiple sites would require a separate license for each site.

Child Theme

The child theme is necessary for the safe parent theme customization. All changes added to the child theme would remain after each update. You can get more information about Child themes and their application in  Child Themes « WordPress Codex

Page builder

WoodMart works with either the WP Bakery builder or the Elementor builder at once, but not with both at the same time. The demo content would be based on the chosen builder. It is not possible to switch from one builder to another after setting everything up.

Plugins

The set of plugins required to ensure WoodMart functionality:

The plugins in the left list are essential for the smooth operation of the WoodMart theme. The plugins in the right column provide additional functionality but may be deleted if they are not necessary.

Dummy content

In order to upload the demo content, all the plugins related to the theme should be installed and activated. Make a full backup before uploading the demo to the existing site! Uploading the demo would reset all the theme settings, and there is no option to set them back. 

Done

This tab is proof that the theme has been fully configured. Now the site is ready for adding content, creating products, posts, and projects.

Manual setup

In the event that the setup theme wizard has been skipped and it is necessary to manage the theme configuration, it is possible to do it manually:

Activation:

In order to get the option for the automatic update, you need to activate your theme. Navigate to Dashboard -> WoodMart -> Theme License, insert the purchase code, and check the agreement for the storing of the purchase code and user data by xtemos.com

How to find your purchase code:

  1. Log into your Envato Market account.
  2. Hover the mouse over your username at the top of the screen.
  3. Click “Downloads” from the drop-down menu.
  4. Click ‘License certificate & purchase code’ (available as PDF or text file).

Child theme:

WoodMart archive folder downloaded from the ThemeForest has the child theme archive ready for installation and activation. You can get more information about Child themes and their application in  Child Themes « WordPress Codex

Page builder:

WoodMart works with either the WP Bakery builder or the Elementor builder at once, but not with both at the same time. In the process of installing the plugin, please install one builder plugin you are going to use. It is not possible to convert an existing site that is built on the WP Bakery Page Builder into Elementor. Page builder plugins are provided in Appearance -> Install plugins.

Plugins:

  1. Go to Appearance -> Install Plugins
  2. Check all the plugins you want (required plugins are important for the theme to work).
  3. Choose to install and click “Apply.”
  4. Wait until all plugins are installed and activated.

It is necessary to install WooCommerce and start the setup wizard

Dummy content

As soon as the theme has been installed with the required plugins, the Dashboard gets the Theme Settings and WoodMart tabs. The Theme Settings Tab provides all the options to configure the site as per business needs.

WoodMart tab contains:

Dummy content – import any of the demo versions or/and additional pages.

Header builder – a unique building tool that allows you to create and configure the header with a variety of elements.

Theme license – the tab for license activation.

WPBakery CSS Generator – disable unused WPBakery elements and generate a smaller CSS file.

Patcher – download and apply patches for known bugs and issues.

To import our dummy content, you need to go to the Dummy content section and click on the “Import” button for one of the available demo versions. You can also switch to “Additional pages” and select one of the available additional pages.
