1.2 Getting Started
To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information regarding the installation of the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
Theme uses basic, core WordPress options (pages,post,categories) to create site that is easy to use even for very beginners. There is no separate option panel with tons of settings in it, all available theme options are available from within the WordPress "Theme Customizer" that allows site admins to tweak theme settings and see a preview of those changes in a real time. From there you can upload your logo or change the site title and tagline, change background color, upload background image, change header image and more.
When you are ready to install the theme, you first need to upload theme installation zip file and then activate the theme itself. The theme file can be uploaded in two ways:
- WordPress Upload (Recommended): Navigate to Appearance » Themes » Add New » Upload. Click browse, and select the ziped theme folder "veganos.zip". Hit "install now" and the theme will be uploaded and installed.
- FTP Upload: Using your FTP program, upload the non-ziped theme folder "veganos" into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server
Once the theme is uploaded, you need to activate it.
After activation, you should see Veganos Theme as an active theme:
