Thank you for purchasing my theme. If you have any questions that are beyond the scope of this help file, please feel free to email me via my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!
If you're reading this lines, this means that you already unzipped the downloaded package from Themeforest.
Now, in the extracted package you will find a folder named "Theme" and 2 archives: "lauren.zip" file and "lauren-child.zip" which are the archives for the wordpress theme and child theme of Lauren.
If you plan to edit the theme files, like style.css, I'm suggesting you to install both Lauren and Lauren Child-Theme, then activate the child theme.
Child themes are great because allow you to edit the theme and also lets you update the original theme in the future, without loosing your edited files work
Read more about child themes and how to use them here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
You can install the themes in two ways:
WordPress: Navigate to Appearance -> Themes -> Add New -> Upload page. Select lauren.zip file.
Press the Install Now button to upload and install the theme. Then do the same for the child theme as well, if you plan to use the child theme.
After uploading the theme, you have to activate it. Navigate to Appearence -> Themes page to activate the theme.
Well, it's really simple.
If you're using the theme to build a new website which doesn't have content yet, I strongly recommend you to use the demo content files.
This theme includes xml data files which will allow you to upload the demo content to your website.
The content is the same as in the Live Demo Preview.
Very Important: don't forget to check the "Download and Import File Attachments" in order to import images too.
Once you are done and wordpress imports the content, you have to go to Appearance -> Menus and assign the menu to the "Main Menu" location.
Customize Widgets Areas:
Go to Dashboard » Appearance » Widgets
Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this template. As I said at the beginning, I'd be glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this template.
