  • Installation

  • Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

    Many issues that you may run into such as: white screen, your demo import fails, empty page content and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

    • max_execution_time 3000
    • memory_limit 256M
    • post_max_size 64M
    • upload_max_filesize 64M
  • Download Theme

    Get the Theme installation package from your account download page and save it to your desktop.

    Since required & recommended plugins are already packed in the download file, you won’t need to go download them individually.

  • Upload & Install Theme
