Installation Process

Theme Installation

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

Upload Theme through WordPress Admin panel

Way 1: install the theme through the WordPress Dashboard:

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

  1. Sign in to your admin panel in 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 ZIP file contains folders and files of the  theme, not the inner additional ZIP.

Upload Theme with FTP

Way 2: upload through the FTP

You need to upload 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 already unzipped  WoodMart folder:

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

  2. Check all plugins you want (required plugins are important for theme to work)
  3. Choose install and click "Apply"
  4. Wait until all plugins will be installed, activate.

Import Demo Content

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

WoodMart tab contains:

Base Import - opportunity to upload the full demo as it is;

Additional pages - opportunity to upload certain pages design from demos;

Header builder - special building tool allowing to create and configure the Header with various set of elements;

Theme license - the tab for license activation;

CSS generator - CSS optimization tool;

In order to upload the full demo, navigate to Base Import and upload Basic or full import. This is a compulsory step for demo uploading. You will find the right block with “Activate Base Version” Pressing the button will upload Base version which is provided here:  

After installation of the Base Version, the left block with Demo versions drop-down becomes available. Choose the Demo from the drop-down and press button “Set up version”

The theme can be activated twice with one and the same license key in order to ensure the possibility to develop a site on a staging platform and then transfer for the final domain. However it the theme is supposed to be used on different domains, it is necessary to acquire licenses for each domain separately.

Note: installing demo content doesn't create a site that is an identical copy of our demo site because it has a big number of pages and images that takes to much time to complete.
Most images you see on our site are not included in our theme package and will not be imported.
