Published: 22.6.2017 | Last update: 22.6.2017

1. Install Theme

Donwload the .zip archive from the theme page. Once you have the zip file downloaded, go to your WordPress dashboard -> Appearance-> Themes-> Add New ->Upload Theme and upload previously downloaded file.

Once installed you can click “Activate Theme”.

2. Import demo content

To help you get started, I created a demo content, exactly same as in the online demo.

  1. Download Creative demo content.
  2. Extract a creative-demo.xml file from the archive. 
  3. Import regular Creative demo content by going to WordPress dashboard -> Tools -> Import -> WordPress. Upload the creative-demo.xml file.
  4. Change your website from blog layout to static website by going to WordPress dashboard -> Settings -> Reading -> Front page displays -> A static page (select below). Select Homepage.
  5. You are now all set with demo content and your website should look exactly like theme demo. 

3. Portfolio items explained

This theme uses a custom post type for portfolio items and adds few extra fields to your portfolio items.

These are:

  • Perex text - used in the item detail, above the image (optional)
  • Image 1, Image 2, Image 3 - Used to be displayed in a carousel on the item detail page. These fields are optional, if you want to use only one image, just use Featured Image instead. (optional)
  • Thumbnail type - a style of the card your item will have while displayed on your homepage or portfolio items listing. (optional)
  • Excerpt - Custom excerpt for homepage or portfolio items listing (optional)
