Politics Plus: Theme Installation
1. Install & Activate the Theme
If you downloaded from https://rescuethemes.com
In the WordPress dashboard, upload the Politics theme zip file from Appearance > Themes.
If you downloaded from Envato:
Download the 'All files & documentation' folder from your Envato Market download area.
Unzip the 'All files & documentation' folder and only upload/activate the Politics theme zip file from within the download package.
2. Install & Activate Recommended Plugins
After the theme is activated, a notice will appear to install the recommended plugins. Install and activate that plugin by selecting 'Begin installing plugins'.
Alternately, you can navigate to the plugin list at:
Appearance > Install Plugins
3. Import the Demo Data
The quickest way to setup your theme to mirror the demo is to import demo content. The demo content is entirely optional though.
There are two demo content files: an
.xml file for posts and pages and a
.wie file for widgets.
Navigate to Tools > Import and select WordPress. Install the WordPress Importer plugin. Activate and run the importer.
Upload the demo content XML file:
Check the 'Download and import file attachments' option after clicking 'Upload file and import'. This will import demo images.
4. Assign the Content
Once both demo content files are installed, your site will have available all of the pages, posts, menus, and widgets as seen in the demo.
Assign the menus at:
Appearance > Menus
Assign the Home and blog page templates at:
Settings > Reading
Continue customizing your site in the theme options at:
Appearance > Customize
