Installation Information

Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running WordPress 3.9 or higher, PHP5 or higher, and mysql 5 or higher. If you use hosting with limited resources (for example GoDaddy and other lowcost shared hosting providers), you may experience issues with one-click dummy data installation feature.

We recommend you to contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server PHP configuration limits are as follows:

  • max_execution_time 600
  • memory_limit (up to) 256M or 512M for creating custom color schemes with LESS CSS compiler.
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

If you are running unmanaged dedicated server or VPS, you should check your php.ini file. Alternatively, you can edit .htaccess file in the root of your website and add the following values:

php_value max_execution_time 600
php_value memory_limit (up to) 256M
php_value post_max_size 32M
php_value upload_max_filesize 32M

Setting these values will ensure you will not get error messages during the installation. To safeguard your website, please use secure passwords and the latest version of WordPress and plugins.

IMPORTANT! To avoid any errors that might come up during the installation we recommend to have memory limit set up to 512M.

Here is the list of other recommended web hosting services:

Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted theme files. After unzipping the archive you will see the following files:

If you try to install the wrong files you will get missing styles.css file error. This is the most common error meaning you are trying to install incorrect package.

To install "Military" theme you need to have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information in regards to installing the WordPress platform please see the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend you to update your WordPress to the latest stable version 4.0 or higher. This will help to ensure that you are able to utilize all of the latest features of WordPress.

You can install the theme in two ways:

  • via FTP:
    1. Log into your web server with FTP client software
    2. Unzip the military.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /military theme folder
    3. Upload the extracted /military theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder
    4. Activate the newly installed theme. Go to Appearance > Themes and activate it.
  • via WordPress:
    1. Login to admin panel.
    2. Go to Appearance - Themes and click on the Add New button.
    3. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse...(Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select the "military.zip" and click Install Now button.
    4. After successful installation click on Activate or go to Appearance - Themes and click on Activate to activate the newly installed theme.
    5. After the theme's activation you will be prompted to install recommended plugins: Essential Grid, Instagram Widget, Revolution Slider, Visual Composer and WordPress Social Login.



      All these plugins are included into the theme's archive or optionally can be installed from the WordPress.org repository.
      The theme can function without any of these plugins. But if you want your website look precisely as on demo page, you have to install all recommended plugins and import demo content. This is a good idea if you are building your website from scratch.
      However, if you have an existing website, you should be very careful with plugin installation and importing dummy data - this may affect your site content and structure. Please read the Demo Content article for details.
    6. A new menu item Theme Options will appear.
    7. Attention! If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend activating a child theme before dummy data installation, otherwise the Theme Options will be lost. Please see the Child Theme section for more information.

Child Theme

Child theme is for developers willing to make changes to core functions and code. If you are not planning to dig that deep, you can easily skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT: If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend that you install child theme and make changes there. To learn more about the purpose and basis of creation of child theme, visit WordPress Codex on http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.

Attention! When activating a child theme or switching back to the parent theme, the theme options will be lost (That was the requirement of the ThemeForest team). We recommend activating a child theme before dummy data installation.

In the theme pack you will see materials for the child theme. It’s located in the "military-child.zip" archive. You can install the child theme the same way as you install the main theme (see above in the section "Installation").

A few recommendations on how to use Child Theme from AncoraThemes:

  • Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in the theme. It doesn’t concern only .php-files with templates and basic logics, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc.
  • If you want to change some of the theme-related functions or to add new ones, copy/add all the required functions into 'functions.php' in the "military-child" folder. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme’s logics.
    IMPORTANT: If you want to replace some functions from other files (except functions.php), e.g. from _wp_utils.php or _utils.php, we strongly do not recommend you copy respective files into the child theme, but you should create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be done so that when updating the theme, new functions from these files are available for use.
    As for other files - putout templates from the folder 'templates', images from the folder 'images' etc. - to make changes, copy theme into the folder 'child theme' and make changes there.

Plugins Installation

In order to make the theme look exactly as at demo page you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link. Please be aware that additional tags plugin is required for this theme to work properly.

You will be redirected to plugins installation page. Check all listed plugins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.

After installation you will see this notification informing that plugins were installed successfully.

Demo Content

Our themes have simple One click dummy data import tool. It's very easy to use, and you can get precise copy of our demo website in just 1 click, really.

Before installing demo data make sure you have installed all required plugins, please refer to Plugins installation section of this document for details.

IMPORTANT: When installing demo-data ALL EXISTING CONTENTS of your website will be deleted and replaced with the new data! We highly recommend that you install demo data only on blank WordPress install.

To import demo content into a WordPress site follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your site as an administrator.
  2. If you see a message prompting to install Themerex Utilities plugin - click on "Begin installing plugins" and install it on the corresponding page.
    IMPORTANT: The rest of recommended plugins (Revolution Slider, Visual Composer and others) are not mandatory for installation of demo content.



  3. Go to Theme Options -> Install Dummy Data:



  4. On the page that showed up please set the required parameters.
    IMPORTANT: if you want to get a precise copy of our demo site choose "Overwrite existing content".



  5. Click on "Install Demo Data" button. IMPORTANT: Please wait while demo data is being copied from our server to your site. It may take a while and depends significantly upon Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.

  6. After the data is successfully imported you will see the Congratulations message:



    In 99.9% it works fine, but if something went wrong and data was not imported, please repeat the procedure described above. The system will find the last item imported successfully and you will be able to continue the import.

    If you are making the install on your local machine, please check your internet connection and firewall settings, this may affect data transfer.

    In case dummy data installation is stuck and demo content will not upload, contact your hosting provider to make sure that your server configurations meet the Theme Requirements.

    IMPORTANT: If you receive "Error load data from the file ..." message, you can install demo data from the local folder included into the theme. In this case, please unzip demo.zip file and upload the exracted /demo folder into /wp-content/themes/military folder. Now refresh the installation page on your site or go to Theme Options > Install Dummy Data and repeat the procedure described above.

    If you still have issues, please contact our support team at https://ancorathemes.ticksy.com. Our tech support operators will assist you.

Theme Update

IMPORTANT: Before you go ahead with the update please check theme changelog and make sure you backup your old theme folder. Download it to your computer locally.

It is the best practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates.

Update using FTP client

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to your downloads tab. Find the theme and download “Installable WordPress file”.

  2. Connect to your server using desktop client software (we recommend CyberDuck and Filezilla)
  3. Change directory to /wp-content/themes
  4. Remove existing folder with old theme files
  5. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from ThemeForest and upload to themes folder
  6. Update the included plugins if you see a notification message letting you know the plugins have a new version.
    • Navigate to WP Dashboard > Plugins > Installed Plugins.
    • Deactivate and delete the plugin(s) of old version.
    • Go to Appearance > Install Plugins and install the plugin(s) like it was described in the Plugins Installation section of this documentation.

Fonts and Colors

In case fonts or color styles/schemes (accent styles), for some reason (for example after the theme update) fall back to their default settings/values, then you need to regenerate the styles and colors again. All you need to do is just click on "Save" button.

Quick Start

After the theme's activation and demo content import we are ready to get started with basic theme settings like site title, tagline, logo, favicon etc.

To change your site title and tagline, go to Settings -> General. Please note, these parameters are important for search engines.

Another great idea may be setting custom permalinks structure to make them more SEO friendly and human readable. Go to Settings -> Permalinks and make changes according to the example below.

Now let's navigate to Theme Options. It gives you control over most of theme settings from one place. There are quite a lot of parameters here, but luckily the majority of them have default values that suit most of the users. We will take a closer look at them a bit later. Now just a few words about how it all works to give you an idea of our Settings Inheritance System

IMPORTANT: One of the most important theme features is Settings Inheritance System. You can flexibly control the appearance and behaviour of the whole website and individual pages, posts and categories. You can set individual display styles, sliders, output settings of page components (posts), and many more for the required category or for each post separately. In other words you can set global styles and then change them for certain post/page types and each single page/post/category individually. These changes will override global styles affecting selected elements and their descendant elements.

How it works

First, you should navigate to Theme Options > Global Options and set global options that will work throughout the entire site. These settings will be default for all categories, pages and posts of the theme:

As we have mentioned above, most of global theme settings can be overridden in certain post/page types and each single page/post/category individually. For example, you need to change style of blog stream page for category that contains Portfolio type posts. Navigate to that category, click the edit button and at the bottom of the page change appearance settings according to your needs:

From now on all the posts in this category and its sub-categories will be displayed in the style of "Portfolio (4 columns)". However hover-effect "Dir" will be preserved for them. Posts of the rest of categories (unless individual settings were applied) will be displayed as defined in Theme Options. By the way, the remaining settings of the category that were not changed (overridden) will also be inherited from the parent ones. If the settings were not changed here too - from Theme Options.

If you want to change the appearance of individual post in the category you should find that post, click the "edit" button and set custom parameters. You can find "Post Options" at the bottom of the post edit page. These parameters will override both category settings and global settings defined in Theme Options panel.

Homepage

Now, let's proceed with creating our home page. You can create as many options of the main page, as you want.

We will show you how to configure one of our Homepages, which is "Home 1" (just the same one as on our demo).

Home 1

The picture below demonstrates the page style we are aiming at:

The algorithm of our actions would be as follows:

  1. Select Pages > Add New and create a new page.
  2. Specify a name for it (e.g. Home 1).
  3. Go to Post Options > Customization > Body style section and set the options according to the screenshot below.



  4. Go to Post Options > Customization > Header section and disable the following options: Show Page title, Show Breadcrumbs.



  5. Now let's add a slider. To do this go to the Post Options > Customization > Slider tab and enable "Show Slider" option. Then select the necessary "Slider Engine" and the slider itself in the "Revolution Slider: Select slider" field.
    Please be aware that to enable the one particular slider on the necessary page (or set of pages) you need to disable the slider in Global Theme Options first and only then enable it for each and every page (or set of pages) in its "Post Options" settings.



  6. In the Sidebars tab choose "Hide" for the "Show main sidebar" option.



  7. Once it's done go to the Blog & Single > Single page section and disable all the parameters like it is shown on the screenshot below.



Now the page is ready for further customization with Visual Composer. Before you start, please check these VC related tutorials. They will give you a basic understanding of how to build a page properly.

  1. Official Visual Composer FAQ page.

  2. Getting Started With Visual Composer Guide.

  3. Visual Composer: A Guide To Drag & Drop Page Building.

  4. How to Add Row and Column with Visual Composer.

  5. How to Add Row or Column Background with Visual Composer.

  6. How to Create Empty Space Between Elements with Custom Height.

The whole page is build with the following elements: Rows, Block containers, Content blocks, Gaps, Columns and Blogger shortcode. On the below screenshots you can see which backend section corresponds to a frontend section.

Here is how it looks on the frontend:

And here is how it looks in the VC's backend editor:

Post Options > Theme Options:

Main Slider

Now, let's set up the main theme's slider.

Built-in Theme Slider (Swiper)

Built-in theme slider allows you to display Featured images from the posts of this category. You can select a category and specify the number of the posts displayed.

Revolution Slider

The theme is fully compatible with an extremely powerful and beautiful plugin - Revolution Slider.

After installation, in the admin panel's menu an item Revolution Slider will show up, using which you can create an unlimited number of sliders, and then set any of them as the main slider in the menu Theme Options > Customization > Slider. To do this, set Revolution slider in the field Slider Engine, and specify the name of the slider in the Revolution Slider: Select slider field.

Here's how your slider might look like.



Please check the following links for more information regarding the Revolution Slider functionality:

Button code:

[trx_button type="square" style="filled" size="large" link="http://themeforest.net/user/ancorathemes/portfolio"]details[/trx_button]

Countdown code:

[trx_countdown time="10:10:10" style="1"]

Slider's settings are the same for another page(s).

Blog

Now that you have finished working on the appearance of the homepage of your website, it is time to start a blog.

Please note that blog is a very handy tool for company news and events page, so it's not just for bloggers. Besides that we use blog functionality to create awesome galleries for your portfolio. To use the blog's functionality in our theme you need to create the blog stream page. To do this you need to:

  • Go to Pages under the WordPress menu and then click Add New.
  • Put your Title as usual ("Blog streampage" for example)
  • Choose "Blog streampage" as the page's template
  • Publish this page.

IMPORTANT: It was an optional step. Even if you do not create a separate page for your blog stream page, you will still use the correct template to display a list of posts. However, creating a separate page will give you an extra advantage - you can set up individual features for blog stream page (position and type of sidebars, color scheme for each element on the page etc.)

Now, assign the newly created page as "Posts page" (blog streampage). To do this:

  1. Select the menu item Settings - Readings



  2. In the field Front page displays select "A static page (select below)", and in the list "Posts page:"choose the page you have created.

Blog Items

Now you can create blog posts.

  • Go to Posts under the WordPress menu and then click Add New.
  • Put your Title as usual.
  • Put Content if needed.
  • Select one or more categories to the Categories.
  • Select desired Post Format.
    1. Standard - just set the featured image or without featured image.
    2. Gallery - add a gallery in the post with standard means of WordPress (with Add Media button located above the editor). In the theme settings you can specify whether you want to replace the original gallery with the built-in theme slider.
    3. Video - Add the YouTube or Vimeo video in the post with the shortcode [video]
    4. Audio - Add the Audio in the post with the shortcode [audio]
    5. Link - Add a link to the body of the post.
    6. Quote - Add text of the quotes (IMPORTANT: select it and mark as "Blockquote"), and after it - a link to the original source.
    7. Image - Add an image to the body of the post.
    8. Status - Add a one-row message to the body of the post.
    9. Aside - Add a short message to the body of the post.
    10. Chat - Normally it contains a block of messages - correspondence of two or more people. For pretty formatting you can use the shortcode [trx_chat].
  • For every post item it is necessary to upload an image and to set it as featured. Click Set featured image on the right in the Featured Image section:

  • Click Select Files button and select image to upload (the full size image). WordPress will crop the image, depending on which portfolio template you will use.
  • After image was uploaded you need to set this image as featured. Click Set featured image.



  • IMPORTANT: In the Post Options section you can flexibly customize the appearance and behaviour of each of the post: select or hide the slider above the post, select and set sidebars and their position (or hide the unnecessary ones), set up the display of different parts of the page and the post (information about the author, related posts, a comment block and many more). There are default settings for each post that are specified in the category to which the post belongs. If the settings are not specified in the category, then they are inherited from the overlying category. If there is no settings specified in any of the parental categories, the settings indicated in Theme Options > Global Options > Blog Services will be used.
  • Publish this post.

Portfolio

This section describes how to create portfolio page and add new items.

Our theme provides easy and powerful tools helping to create eye catching galleries. Portfolio items are just usual posts with improved look and feel features and work exactly as blog posts.

To get started you should create posts category that will contain your portfolio entries and sub-categories.

  1. Navigate to Posts > Categories > Add New, name the category and add some description.
  2. Go to the bottom of the page and in the section "Custom settings for this taxonomy (and nested)" click on Blog and Single tab
  3. Unlock Blog style options
  4. Select one of the layouts that suits your needs. Later you can play around with the layouts and hover effects to achieve desired look and feel.


Now we have just created a category that will contain our portfolio items and display them proper way. If you add some sub-categories to this main category, they will inherit parent style unless you choose to override them at category options page. Lets add some portfolio items!

  1. Go to Posts -> Add New, name the post accordingly
  2. In the right column find Categories widget and select "Portfolio" category - thus we move usual post entry into portfolio section.
  3. Set featured image and save the post. Please note that this featured image will be used as a primary portfolio image so make sure it has a good quality.


To add portfolio page to main menu navigate to Appearance > Menus, select newly created category and add it to main (or any other) menu, save the menu and you are done!

Team

Team is a custom post type used to create team member elements and used for announcements. The list of the staff members is available in Team section.

You can use team members and teams in trx_team shortcode or add new members manually. To read more about trx_team shortcode please follow this link.



As you can see above each new team member has extra parameters which are custom link to member profile (can be external URL), social profiles, position etc.

Services

Services custom post type is used to create service posts available in admin -> Services section.

You can change the icon for each Service post in admin -> Services, open single Post Options and switch to Blog and Single -> Single page. Please check the screenshot:



Fontello source files are located in military/css/fontello folder. You can see the list of all icons opening military/css/fontello/demo.html file in the browser.

In order to add new fontello icons to the theme list, please use the following tutorial:

Landing Pages

Landing pages are extremely popular now since they are extremely powerful marketing solutions with high conversion rate. Our themes provide powerful tools helping to create awesome one-page navigation in a blink of an eye.

To create a landing page follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to Pages > Add New, give this page a name like "My Landing"
  2. Enable side "Table of content" menu: Post Options > Customization > Header > TOC position > Fixed
    Disable top menu if needed: Post Options > Customization > Header > Top panel position > Hide



    Now we are ready to add menu items.
  3. Lets add some content to the page. In order to obtain a menu item in page navigation menu each content block must be separeted with anchor shortcode. Each anchor shortcodes adds new navigation item to Table of Content Menu (see below) and this way organizes page navigation. See example below:
    [trx_anchor id="toc_projects" title="Our projects" description="Our projects - |show your works with amazing hovers" icon="icon-briefcase"]
    This shortcode creates a menu item named "Our projects", adds a description (displayed when mouse is over) and adds menu item icon. When you click "Our projects" menu item, the page will scroll to the place where this shortcode was inserted. This is a simple and effective way to create navigation menu on landing pages.

This is how you can create awesome one-page navigation in a few clicks.



Once again, the core tool to create page navigation and add page anchors is [trx_anchor] shortcode. The theme scans page content, finds trx_anchor shortcodes and builds menu. To get more information regarding this shortcode please follow this link.

Reviews

We have a special rating system that can be easily integrated into any post or category. See how it works:

  1. In Theme Options -> Global Options - Reviews add the required number of evaluation criteria. These criteria will be available when editing any post in any category. If your website publishes reviews in only one direction (for example, "Movies"), then you may leave it like this.
  2. Of course, we understand that to rate different areas (music, movies, technology, etc.) you need a completely different rating criteria. Therefore, you can override the list of criteria in each category. To do this, open Posts - Categories, select a category you want to modify, click Edit and at the bottom of the page find "Custom settings for this category" in the tab Reviews add new criteria for evaluation.

    IMPORTANT: The criteria established for a category is valid for all the posts in this category and sub-categories in it.
  3. Now, in any post you can assess the subject of the article in the section Post Options in the tab Reviews:

As a result you will see similar reviews panel on post pages

IMPORTANT: If you change the list of categories for the current post, first press "Update" ("Publish" if you save it for the first time) and then proceed with the installation of Review parameters. If your newly selected category is assigned a separate list of Review criteria, it will appear on the tab "Reviews" only after you save (update) the post!

IMPORTANT: In Theme Options -> Global Options - Reviews you can choose the rating system for your posts: 5 stars, 10 stars or 100%. You can easily switch from one rating system to another at any moment!

Page 404

Now we can prepare another page of our blog. This is not mandatory, but if you want to create an error 404 Page you can customize styles and behavior of it in the following way.

Let's set up an error 404 page. To do this, you need to:

  • Navigate to Theme Options, in the dropdown menu choose "404" option.
  • Now you can customize the behavior of your 404 page via available Customization options.
  • Once you have done this, click on the "Save" button in the upper right corner of the top Theme Options bar.

As a result, when you try to open a non existing page on your site, you will see page containing this message:



Please Note! You can not always preview 404 page using WordPress View page or Preview changes button. You should type an incorrect site URL to see the "404" page.

To customize this page you should edit page template file in any text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. Open root folder of your theme and find /templates folder.
This folder contains 404.php file. You can open it in any text editor and change HTML code according to your needs.

Theme Options

Now, let's talk about the theme's settings: Theme Options > Global Options. Here you will get the full control over display and functionality of the entire web-site.

Some groups of the settings have been described above, in the sections dedicated to the Home Page and Blog.

Here we will consider the Global Options settings.

IMPORTANT:

Please be aware that our theme has a unique inheritance hierarchy. It means that settings of each particular post\page\category can override global theme settings.​
The settings of Theme Options > Global Options section affect behavior of the entire website, all of it. In other words, if you want all of your posts, pages and categories to look exactly the same, all you need to do is go through those Global options:



You can apply a different set of settings to each sub-group of the theme's options. Their settings will override the global options settings. See the screenshot below:

There's one more important thing we'd like to mention. In the Theme Options you can find Fonts & Colors section.



Here you can create your own color schemes. It is based on the LESS framework. More information about it can be found here. Please be aware that creating color schemes requires a lot of server resources and at least 128MB of RAM. So we recommend to consider a decent hosting plan.

Anyway you can always stick with the predefined color schemes we have already created.



Custom fonts can be set in the Fonts tab.



Please Note! In case fonts or color styles/schemes (accent styles), for some reason (for example after the theme update) fall back to their default settings/values, then you need to regenerate the styles and colors again. All you need to do is just click on "Save" button.

Widgets

Theme comes with some default widget sidebars. Have a look at Appearance - Widgets.

  • Main sidebar - Displays widgets vertically on the left or right from the main contents.
  • Outer sidebar - Also displays widgets vertically on the left or right from the main contents.
  • Footer sidebar - Displays widgets horizontally in footer of the page (under Contents).

In Theme Options > Global Options > Customization > Sidebars > Custom sidebars section you can create an unlimited number of additional sidebars.

Check out also the Appearance -> Widgets section.



Here you should just populate selected sidebar with widgets and assign this sidebar to any page, post or category. Simply drag and drop selected widget to sidebar area.

To add sidebar to the specific page go to All Pages > Edit. Navigate to Post Options > Customization > Sidebars section and in the "Show main sidebar" field pick the needed position for your sidebar. Apply all the necessary changes. Once it's done, click on Update button in top right corner. This will save your changes.

Custom widgets:

  1. ThemeREX - Advanced Calendar: Adds a calendar for posts and events.
  2. ThemeREX - Advertisement block: Used to insert advertising blocks - images with links or arbitrary HTML-blocks. IMPORTANT: Be careful to use extraneous HTML-code inorder not to disrupt the design of the page.
  3. ThemeREX - Flickr photos: Shows photos from Flickr account.
  4. Instagram photos: Shows photos from Instagram account. IMPORTANT! You need install plugin "wp-instagram-widget.zip" before use this widget.
  5. ThemeREX - Most Popular & Commented Posts: Displays the most visited and most commented articles.
  6. ThemeREX - QR Code generator: Displays VCard 3.0 with your personal data (address, phone, email, etc.) as QR Code. Also you can display as QR Code any text (or link).
  7. ThemeREX - Recent Posts: Displays the most recent posts. Unlike the standard widget, it displays the post's featured image, author's name, comments or views number.

  12. ThemeREX - Twitter: This widget shows the last Tweets from your Twitter-feed using the API 1.1 (entered into force in June 2013)
    For its work, this version of the widget requires creating "Twitter Application" and obtaining the appropriate codes. Due to the fact that Twitter from June 2013 switched to the new API 1.1 and discontinued support of out-of-date API 1.0, now to get information out of this social network, you must create an account on the resource https://dev.twitter.com/apps. Then, click the "Create a new application", fill in the required fields and generate "Access token" and "Access token secret". As a result, you will get four important core values to work with Twitter API 1.1:
    • Consumer key
    • Consumer secret
    • Access token
    • Access token secret
    You will need these fields to configure the widget "ThemeREX - Twitter" in Appearance - Widgets

Contact form: This widget is not supplied, but you can easily create it using the widget "Text": just add widget "Text" in the right sidebar and paste the shortcode [trx_contact_form] into this widget. That's all!

Here is an example of how the Footer sidebar may look like:



Shortcodes

Shortcodes is a handy feature in WordPress that allows you to do some pretty incredible things by just inserting a shortcode into a page or post. Using Shortcodes is very straight-forward, just insert one where you want the relevant content to show up.

The theme comes with a number of shortcodes allowing you to add the info in a simple way. Moreover, you can use WPBakery Visual Composer to add new elements to the page. More information on how to use Visual Composer properly can be found here:

IMPORTANT: If you are using Classic mode to add shortcodes, please make sure to always start new shortcodes from new lines. Most of the time you won't encounter any errors, if you don't do that, but unfortunately WordPress does mess up the html sometimes. This is true for all shortcodes, but the inline ones like trx_highlight, are the only ones that don't need a new paragraph.

Please note that almost all the shortcodes allow parameters:

  • id - unique id for element. Allow to address this element form javascript or CSS
  • class - class name for element. Allow set up additional decorations for element in CSS stylesheets.
    IMPORTANT: You can use next common classes to decorate any shortcode:
    • theme_accent - main (accent) theme color used for decorate inner text of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_bg - main (accent) theme color used as background (instead bg image) of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_bgc - main (accent) theme color used as background color of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_border - main (accent) theme color used as border color of the shortcode (if border present)
    • theme_accent2 - accent2 theme color used for decorate inner text of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_bg - accent2 theme color used as background (instead bg image) of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_bgc - accent2 theme color used as background color of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_border - accent2 theme color used as border color of the shortcode (if border present)
    • texture_bg_1 ... texture_bg_10 - set texture image for the shortcode's background
    • bg_pattern_0 ... bg_pattern_9 - set pattern image for the shortcode's background (repeat, fill background)
    • bg_image_1 ... bg_image_6 - set image for the shortcode's background (no repeat, fit to background)
    You can combine classes above. For example, we need section with theme color for background and texture 1:
    [trx_section class="theme_accent_bgc texture_1"]Section inner text[/trx_section]
  • top, bottom, left, right the value of which is the number - the margin in pixels from the top, bottom, left and right of the block respectively.

Also, note that "on | off" and "yes | no" in values of the parameters are interchangeable! That is, if the shortcode's description indicates that the value of a parameter can be "on" or "off", it means that along with them you can use the "yes" or "no".

Here's a list of the shortcodes included into the theme.

trx_accordion

Emailer - mass e-mail distribution and collection of subscription lists

Our themes come with another great tool helping you keep in touch with your customers and site visitors. It's a small addon helping collect emails and send newsletters. If you are running small project it's a great alternative to professional email services like MailChimp or Sendgrid.

WARNING: Before using mass email tool please check if your web hosting provider allows you to send mass email. Most of shared web servers strictly prohibit sending mass emails and can block your account.

WARNING: If you have more than 1000 subscribers, we highly recommend using professional mass email services to ensure high deliverability, high open/click rate. Always make sure you are using double opt-in email list, getting too many abuse reports may affect your site SEO. Remember, SPAM is no-no!

ADVICE: To keep your list healthy and up to date we recommend using Email validation service, this is a great tool to filter junk emails if you purchased emails list elsewhere !

Emailer Features:

  • Emailer will help you automatically create and update mailing lists.
  • You can easily create a mailing list for an arbitrary list of clients, or you can use one of the lists as the basis, completing it with arbitrary set of addresses from a text file.
  • Sent letters can be decorated using a standard WordPress editor.
  • It's possible to add an attachment-file (a document or an archive) to the e-mail.

To enable "Emailer" go to Theme Options > Global Options > Service and select "Yes" in the field "Enable Emailer in admin panel". Then click on "Save" button.



You will get a new menu item "Tools" - "Emailer".

How it works

Distribution lists - shortcode [trx_emailer]

If you want your site visitors to be able to subscribe to any kind of newsletters, simply create a page (post) newsletter description, and add a shortcode [trx_emailer group = "mail_delivery_name"] to it, where mail_delivery_name is a name of the list of subscribers. That's it!

As a result, a subscription form will appear on the page you've created above:



where your visitors can leave their e-mail address (with option dbl-in checking):



and after confirmation their email appear in the subscribers list:



Using menu Appearance - Emailer you will do a distribution for this list:

Emailer consists of 2 basic panels:

  • on the left hand - email composer that includes visual text editor, attachment form and subject line.
    NOTICE! We do recommend reading general newsletter guide lines before sending emails, this helps to improve deliverability and not look spammy.
  • on the right - field to select one of the previously created mailing groups. If you want to create a newsletter for an arbitrary list of addresses, in this field you don't have to choose anything, but simply insert the e-mail address list into the next field - "List of recipients". Each address in this field ("List of recipients") must begin from a new line or you must put signs ";" or "" between the addresses.
    If you chose a group form the list, the field List of recipients will display the list of e-mail addresses from that group. IMPORTANT: In this list, you will see only confirmed addresses! Under the list of recipients, you can specify name and e-mail address of the newsletter sender . If these fields are not filled out, the data are collected from WordPress settings: menu Settings - General.
    To the right from the field of group selection, there is a set of switchers that allow to manage current group:
    • Update - update the list of e-mail addresses when sending an e-mail (if you edited it in the field below)
    • Clear - delete unconfirmed addresses from the list of e-mail addresses when sending an e-mail
    • Deleter - delete the entire group after sending an e-mail

NOTICE! A good practice of email marketing is adding extra paragraph to your privacy policy page covering terms of emails usage.

May the work with your mailings be pleasant, and most importantly, profitable!

Theme Translation

We recommend using Poedit software for translation-related purposes. To translate the theme to your language, please follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Poedit software.

  2. Navigate to the theme/.../languages/ folder and locate .po file. Copy it to your desktop for editing.

  3. Open the .po file. Now select the constant text string you need to translate from the "Source text - English" field and type in the necessary translation into the "Translation" field. You can translate as much as you want, just go through the file and click on each string in Poedit and add your translation.

  4. Next, you have to save the changes to your .po file using the naming convention based on the language code (e.g. pt for Portuguese) followed by the country code (for instance _BR for Brazil).

    To do that click on the "sheet" icon (you can also use hotkeys CMD+Shift+S in OS X or Win+S in Windows) and type in the name according to the screenshot below. The first lower-case letters define the language, whereas the second upper-case letter defines the country. In most cases, the language and country are the same, like “de_DE” for Germany. However, there is a difference for languages like English or Portuguese, which are spoken in several countries natively. In this case, the difference is in the first and second letter pairs; for the UK, the code would be en_GB, whereas the en_US stands for the USA. If you are not familiar with the codes for your native language and country, then visit the GNU website.

    See Language Codes and Country Codes for the lists of codes.

    Please note, if you use the wrong naming convention WordPress can not process your translation.

  5. When saving your .po file, Poedit automatically creates a new .mo file, with the same naming convention. According to the example above, the file would be called pt_BR.mo.

  6. Upload the .po and .mo files you just created to the .../languages/ folder. Make sure these files are in the same directory as the default.po and default.mo files.
  7. OPTIONAL! Only for themes with WordPress version 4.0 or lower.

    The last step is to tell WordPress what language to display. Open your wp-config.php file in a text editor and search for: define ('WPLANG', ''); string. Edit this line according to the .mo file you should already have downloaded (e.g. for the Portuguese spoken in Brazil you need to add define ('WPLANG', 'pt_BR');).

In case you still have questions on how to use Poedit, please check the following resources:
