WordPress Information

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. Below are some useful links regarding WordPress information.

Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running at least WordPress 5.0, PHP 5.6.20 or higher (for Booked and WooCommerce plug-ins PHP 7.0+). If you use a hosting service with limited resources (e.g. GoDaddy!), you may experience issues with the "one-click" demo data installation.

Before installing the theme, please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted the theme files. Some of the folders names may slightly vary. Treat the screenshot below as an example only.

The main package contains archives with the main theme, child theme, documentation and bundled plug-ins.

If you try to install the wrong files, you will get the missing style.css error. This is the most common error that means you are trying to install an incorrect package.

PLEASE NOTE!Qwery archive contains 66 themes (skins) in one package that differ in design only.

In order to install the theme, you need to have a working version of WordPress installed on your server first. Check out this guide for detailed information on how to install WordPress. We also highly recommend updating your WordPress to the latest stable version.

To make the theme look exactly as on the demo page, you would need to install the recommended plug-ins:

  1. After the installation/activation of ThemeREX Addons plug-in and theme activation, you will see a prompt with a list of plug-ins to install. Click on the Begin installing plugins link or go to Appearance > Install Plugins.
  2. Check the plug-ins you want to install, select the Install option and click Apply. Installation may take a few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.
  3. Now, activate the plug-ins. Go to Appearance > Install Plugins, check all the listed plug-ins, choose Activate option and click Apply.

In case you are running a shared hosting with limited resources (e.g. GoDaddy), we do recommend enabling only the essential plug-ins (e.g. ThemeREX Addons, Elementor) and disable the rest. Otherwise, it may significantly increase the memory consumption, which might lead to unwanted issues.

PLEASE NOTE! The installation and activation of bundled plug-ins run automatically. Anyway, if you have any issues, please extract plugins.zip archive (from the theme package) and proceed with the plug-ins installation manually.

Gutenberg Compatibility

Our theme is compatible with Gutenberg page builder. You can create new pages using this editor, though you can still use pre-built custom header and footer layouts.

All existing demo pages and layouts are built through Elementor Page Builder and should be customized via Elementor ONLY.

PLEASE NOTE! It is possible to switch between the page builders. Please use One page builder for creating/customizing One particular page/post/layout.

Child Theme

If you want to make changes to the theme's files and functions, we strongly recommend installing a child theme. This ensures that your theme customizations stay in place after the theme update. If you are not planning to change the core theme files, you are free to skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT! Install the child theme before importing the demo data. Otherwise, all of your theme options will be reset.

A child theme is installed the same way you install a parent theme. Locate the qwery-child.zip file in the theme package and upload it via the WordPress admin panel. Alternatively, you can unzip it and upload via FTP (see main theme installation chapter).

Using a Child Theme

Your child theme has its own functions.php file. Use it to copy modified functions from the parent theme's functions.php, or register new functions.

You can copy all files from the parent theme into the child theme except files located in the following folders:

  • /includes
  • /plugins
  • /theme-options
  • /theme-specifics

In the /front-page folder, you can copy all files except front-page.options.php.

If the file you want to edit is in one of these folders, you need to copy the required function from that file, and register it in the child theme's functions.php.

The rest of the files can be copied and edited directly in the child theme folder.

When copying parent theme files into the child theme, preserve the original folder structure. Create respective folders and make sure that the file path is the same as in the parent theme.

Demo Content

Our theme includes a simple One-click demo data installation, which allows your site to look exactly as on the theme demo.

Before installing demo data, please make sure you have activated your theme copy (entered the purchase code in the WP Dashboard > Theme Panel > Theme Dashboard > General tab) and installed all the required plug-ins. Check the Plug-ins installation section for more information about the required plug-ins.

In case you do not have your Purchase Code, please navigate to your ThemeForest "Downloads" page and click on the theme download link. Check this guide for more details.

IMPORTANT! Our theme supports RTL text direction (compatibility, without rtl-demo content)! Please FIRST choose the correct language in your WordPress settings (Dashboard > Settings > General > Site Language), then proceed with the demo data installation.

Our theme contains RTL styles. The page content should be manually adjusted for RTL text-direction using Elementor settings (e.g. changing the alignment of icons, etc).

In order to import the demo content go to Theme Panel (WP Dashboard) > Theme Dashboard > Demo Data.

On the page that showed up set the required parameters.

Partial Import

When choosing the partial demo data import, the new content will be added to your existing data.

Although this will not overwrite your existing content, we still recommend backing up your website before doing this.

Note, that the pages are imported without the original images. Instead, the image placeholders are used. This is done to keep your existing content intact.

Import separate pages means that you receive the page structured like on our demo, just widgets set that requires further customization: you should replace demo categories/post ids with your own ones.

Full Import

When choosing this option, all the existing content of your website will be lost and replaced with the new data. We recommend using this option for new WordPress installations only.

Use the full import option if you want to have an exact copy of the theme demo. It enables you to import all media files, pages, theme options, and plug-in settings.

Some plug-ins increase the memory consumption. For example, BuddyPress and bbPress (not included into the theme's package) require additional 60-80Mb. If you are having trouble installing the demo data, deactivate massive plug-ins and try again.

In case demo data installation is stuck and you see "Error load data from the file ... " error message, you can manually install it by downloading the skin_name.zip archive with demo data from our server for each skin separately. The archive should be unzipped. Then create demo/ folder in wp-content/themes/qwery/ directory and copy /skin_name folder to wp-content/themes/qwery/demo.

Treat the screenshot below as an example only. The list of folders inside a theme package may vary.

If the issue persists, please contact your hosting service provider to make sure that your server configuration meets the Theme Requirements. Otherwise, please refer your request to our support department.

Installation FAQs

There are two ways to solve this problem.
  1. Contact your web hosting service provider to increase your upload_max_filesize to 80M.
  2. Upload the extracted theme package via an FTP client to wp-content/themes directory.
The error occurs because of the low memory_limit. You can increase memory_limit on your server in several ways, namely by editing:
  1. wp-config.php file: define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
  2. php.ini: memory_limit = 128M;
  3. .htaccess file: php_value memory_limit 128M;
Please contact your web hosting service provider to enable mbstring PHP function in server settings. The function is needed for some languages, such as Japanese, Chinese etc. In case you can not enable the settings, please contact the support team to get assistance with disabling the function in the theme.
Edit wp-config.php file and add the following lines after database information:
  • define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' );
  • define('FS_CHMOD_DIR', 0770);
  • define('FS_CHMOD_FILE', 0660);
Please contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your PHP configuration limits are as follows:
  • max_execution_time 600
  • memory_limit 128M
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

Then re-import demo data - it will be successful. In case you still have any issues, please contact our support team.
Please unselect "Media" in the list on the "Install demo data" screen and import the rest of the data. Our Support team can provide the demo media archive, so you could upload media via FTP, just submit a support ticket.

Theme Update

This step is required if you received the notification that a new version of the theme is available. You can see this information in Changelog section at the bottom of the item's details page.

Before you go ahead with the update make sure to backup your old theme's folder. Download it to your computer locally.

Update Option 1. Update using the ThemeREX Updater plug-in

  1. Please make sure the ThemeREX Updater plug-in is installed and activated. This plug-in is provided with the theme.
  2. Optional! If you have activated your theme copy (entered the purchase code in the Theme Panel (WP Dashboard) > Theme Dashboard > General tab) you can omit this step.
    Otherwise, navigate to Appearance > ThemeREX Updater and enter your purchase code to get the latest versions of bundled plug-ins and theme updates through the WordPress admin panel. To get the code, please navigate to your ThemeForest "Downloads" page and click on the theme download link. Check this guide for more details.
  3. We recommend you to check the "Create backups" option (Appearance > ThemeREX Updater tab) to allow the system create backups for plug-ins versions and the theme automatically.
  4. Proceed to WP Dashboard > Updates and check if any updates are available.
  5. Choose the options for an update (plug-in, theme, etc.) and click on Update button.
  6. You can restore the backups created by the system in WP Dashboard > Updates or in Appearance > ThemeREX Updater (if the "Create backups" option was checked before the update).

Update Option 2. Update using WordPress uploader

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to Downloads tab. Find the theme and download Installable WordPress file only.
  2. Log into your WordPress website and go to Appearance > Themes.
  3. Activate a default WordPress theme. Delete the older version of your theme and re-upload the new WordPress Installable files that you have downloaded from ThemeForest during the 1st step.
  4. Once it is uploaded, activate the theme.

    IMPORTANT! If you're using a child theme, do not activate the newly uploaded parent theme. Activate your old child theme instead. Otherwise, all the child theme customizations will be lost.
  5. Update (if necessary!) the included plug-ins, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.
    • Navigate to WP Dashboard > Plugins > Installed Plugins.
    • Update ThemeREX Addons plug-in. You can click on "Update" button (if available in a particular theme) or deactivate and delete this plug-in. Then follow the prompt to install it again. This will load a new plug-in version on the site.
    • Deactivate and delete the rest plug-in(s) of old version.
    • Go to Appearance > Install Plugins and install the plug-in(s) like it was described in the Plugins Installation section of this documentation.

Update Option 3. Update using FTP client

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and get the last version of the theme as described above.
  2. Connect to your server using desktop client software (we recommend Filezilla and CyberDuck).
  3. Change directory to /wp-content/themes.
  4. Remove/rename existing folder with old theme files.
  5. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from ThemeForest and upload them to the themes folder.
  6. Update (if necessary!) the included plug-ins in the way described above, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.

Now let's navigate to Appearance (WP Dashboard) > Customize to flexibly control the appearance and behavior of the whole website as well as individual types of posts, pages and categories.

IMPORTANT! Please be aware that our theme provides a special inheritance hierarchy system for "Theme Options" settings. It means that individual settings of each page may override global settings made with Customizer Panel.
Settings of "Blog", "WooCommerce", "Plugins settings" (such as Portfolio, Services, Team, Testimonials and Events) and other groups may also override default/general settings available through Customizer.

Moreover, you can see the changes of the front-end right after the alterations - when the needed parameter is selected, without switching from admin to front-end each time. When you are done with the changes, you should click on Publish button at the top of the Customizer's side menu.

IMPORTANT! Please be aware that all the Customizer's settings are also available for editing through Theme Panel (WordPress Dashboard Menu) > Theme Options section.

PLEASE NOTE! The settings described below are for Default Skin.

Available Default Header Style:

The header area in "Default" style is created via the Global Customize settings (Appearance > Customize). You can also navigate to the .../wp-content/themes/qwery/skins/skin_name/templates/ folder and edit the corresponding template file header-default.php.

Header Position

The Header position setting controls the way your header behaves in regards to the main body area.

  • Default - the default header position. The header occupies a separate section and does not collide with other website elements.
  • Over - ideally is used for pages with sliders. The header elements overflow the section that follows next, and the header background becomes transparent.
  • Under - sets the header area stuck behind the content area when scrolling down the page.

"Header fullheight" option enlarges the header area to fill the whole screen. It is used only if the header contains a background image.

"Header fullwidth" option stretches the header widgets area to the entire window width.

Widgets-related settings

Here you can specify the widgets set for the header area. You can customize the widgets in Appearance > Widgets section.

By default, the header logo settings can be adjusted in Appearance > Customize > Logo & Site Identity.

A sticky header is a type of header that stays at the top of your page while scrolling. You can enable or disable the sticky header behavior by following these steps:
  1. Open the header Layout you are currently using in Layouts > All Layouts.

We recommend you to create alternative custom header and footer layouts for mobile devices (without any hidden elements for other screen resolutions), as these hidden elements still take time while loading your website.

Header-related settings

These settings allow selecting header style and position. For custom header style you can specify the header layout, that is available for customizing in WP Dashboard > Layouts.

The Header position setting controls the way your header behaves in regards to the main body area.

  • Mobile Menu - displays the menu on mobile devices.
  • Footer Menu - displays the menu in the footer area.

Predefined Menu sets:

Within custom header & footer layouts, you can add menus using the Elementor Layouts: Menu widget.

We have added the following custom CSS classes to stretch the drop-down menu items. The class names should be assigned to the menu items of the first level, like on our demo:

  • .trx_addons_stretch_window_boxed - stretches the background of the drop-down menu to the whole window width, though the content stays in the area of limited screen width.
  • .trx_addons_stretch_window - stretches the drop-down menu to the whole screen width.
  • .columns-X - "X" is for the number of columns to split your menu items into.

Widgets

Widgets are the blocks of content that can be placed into specifically designed widget areas.

You can find the list of available widgets and widget areas under Appearance (WP Dashboard) > Widgets. Here it is also possible to create additional widget sets, that can be assigned to available default widget areas. This is useful when you have different widget sets for different pages.

IMPORTANT! You can easily restore the Classic Widgets Editor by enabling the "Disable new Widgets Block Editor" option in Theme Panel > ThemeREX Addons > General.

By default our theme supports 7 widget areas:

  • Header
  • Sidebar
  • Top of the page
  • Above the content
  • Below the content
  • Bottom of the page
  • Footer

You can add widgets into widget areas by simply dragging and dropping.

But in order to see them on your website, you need to make sure you have a particular widget set assigned to a particular default widget area. You can assign widget sets either for the whole website (in Appearance > Customize), or for a specific page (single Page > Theme Options > Content/Widgets/Header/Footer).

IMPORTANT! The Sidebar/Footer widgets are available for "Default" sidebar/footer styles ONLY!
In order to manage custom sidebar or custom footer styles, proceed to Dashboard > Layouts tab and update the corresponding sidebar/footer layout.

Widget Sets Assignment for the Whole Site

Header widgets can be assigned in Appearance > Customize > Header section.

Body widgets (for sidebar, top of the page, above the content, below the content and bottom of the page) are accessible in Appearance > Customize > General section.
The sidebar widgets work for Default Sidebar Style only! Otherwise, navigate to the WP Dashboard > Layouts tab to manage the sidebar layout.

Footer widgets are available for managing in Appearance > Customize > Footer section. The footer widgets work for Default Footer Style only! Otherwise, you need to customize the corresponding footer Layout in WP Dashboard > Layouts.

Widget Sets Assignment for a Specific Page

If you want to specify a widget set for a separate page, open that page in your WordPress admin and in the Theme Options section choose the required widgets. The widgets assigned in Theme Options would be applicable only for that particular page.

Customizing Widget Sets that are already enabled on a Specific Page

Depending on the selected page that is available for editing with Customizer's tools, you can notice a different kind of widgets sets included to a particular page. The same can be done through Appearance (WP Dashboard) > Widgets.

Below are options responsible for managing widgets/blocks.

  • Add a Widget (for classic widgets editor) or Add a Block (for new widgets editor): just click on "Add a Widget/Block" button to see the available widgets, then choose the one you want to use: Click on the block itself to open its settings (for new widgets editor):
  • Reorder the position of widgets using three icons:

    • Move - moves the widget to another sidebar.
    • Down - moves the widget down.
    • Up - moves the widget upwards.

After you reorder the position of the widgets/blocks in the sidebar, save your changes.

Colors

The theme allows you to assign color schemes to specific parts of your website. This is useful for highlighting certain areas and giving them a distinctive look.

The theme supports 3 color schemes - default (light), dark and alter light.

Check this video tutorial for more information on how to customize color schemes.

IMPORTANT! Due to specifics of CSS rules, you are unable to assign a light color scheme to any website part, if the dark color scheme is enabled.

Here are the website parts to which you can assign color schemes:

  • Show Helpers - enables a colored border arround a block in the Customizer with an element's name and color scheme applied to this particular element. The helper can be useful for editing the theme's color schemes. It helps you understand the colors of what elements you are customizing.
  • Site Color Scheme - defines the main color scheme of your website. If no other part of website has a color scheme specified explicitly, affects the whole website. Otherwise, affects the body background color, body typography and pretty much anything that is located below the header and above the footer areas (except sidebar).
  • Header Color Scheme - modifies the color scheme of the header.
  • Sidebar Color Scheme - affects the color of the sidebar. The Inherit option inherits the value specified in the Site Color Scheme setting.
  • Footer Color Scheme - specifies the color of your footer.

You can also assign color schemes for individual pages in the Theme Options > Colors panel of those pages.

Color Scheme Editor

Here you can customize the color schemes of your website.

Three additional buttons are available:

  • Reset - removes the current changes, made after your last saving.
  • Copy - creates a new color scheme by duplicating the default one. Thus, it is possible to set different color schemes for particular pages and their parts.
  • Delete - removes the current color scheme. You can delete only newly created color schemes. All default ones will remain.

Select the color scheme you want to customize and choose one of 2 modes (editor types) - simple or advanced.

In a simple mode, you can customize the accent colors (link colors) of a theme. If you want to dig deeper, switch to the advanced mode. You can entirely change the theme colors.

Both modes contain the following groups of settings:

MAIN

The main color group of a website. Here you can find the following elements:

  • Background color - the main background color of a website; (for advanced mode only)
  • Border color - color used for elements with a border and for content delimiters; (for advanced mode only)
  • Text - color for the main body text; (for advanced mode only)
  • Text dark - color mainly applied for headings and page/post titles; (for advanced mode only)
  • Text light - color used for additional meta elements, such as post author, date, comments, etc. (for advanced mode only)
  • Link - the main accent color of a website. The color can be used as links color, a background color for buttons and the color for minor elements, like list item markers, etc. By default, this setting sets the Link hover color for the Alter color group.
  • Link hover - the hover color of the elements with the main accent color and the hover color for links. It can also be used as the main accent color for the Alter color group.
  • Accent 2 - the second accent color;
  • Accent 2 hover - the hover color of the elements with second accent colors;
  • Accent 3 - the third accent color;
  • Accent 3 hover - the hover color of the elements with third accent colors;

ALTER

Alter means alternative color group, mostly applied for sidebar and footer, if a color scheme is assigned to them and it coincides with the site color scheme (NOT inherited). This group of colors can also be applied to page widgets or blocks that are output on some background by default (the background is NOT added through the page builders). Alter colors include the same elements as the Main color group, plus two additional hover colors for border and background.

EXTRA

An additional color group for extra elements such as dropdowns, price blocks, table headers, blockquotes, etc.
As a rule, the text and background colors from the Extra group should contrast against the respective colors from the Main color group.

INVERSE (for advanced mode only)

Inverse elements are the elements that use the theme accent color (usually the main one) ("Link", "Accent 2", "Accent 3" options) as a background color. In this way, they get distinctive look and stand out from the rest of the content. You can apply these settings for buttons, blockquotes, dropdowns, etc.

  • Border color;
  • Border hover;
  • Text color - the main body text color;
  • Text dark - used for headings or other elements that need a darker color;
  • Text light - used for meta elements that provide additional information;
  • Link color - since the main accent color (i.e. the link color) sets the background color, you need to specify a different link color;
  • Link hover - the hover color of the link;

INPUT (for advanced mode only)

Colors for form fields: input fields, text areas, select fields, etc.

  • Background - background color of an input field;
  • Background hover - background color when an input field is active;
  • Border color;
  • Border hover - border color when a field is active;
  • Text - a regular text color;
  • Text dark - the color of the text when a field is active (as you type in);
  • Text light - used for the placeholder text when a field is not active, before you type in;

In case the changes of the color schemes are not applied, please enable Debug mode (in Theme Panel > ThemeREX Addons > General tab) and save ThemeREX Addons settings.

You can also control the background patter individually for a particular page in the Theme Options > Content section of this page.

This background pattern is added through the CSS styles. The image pattern.png can be found in /qwery/skins/creative-agency/images/patterns/ folder.

The staining background is just an image inserted to the page using Elementor page builder.

This is how the cryptocurrency homepage looks like.

Dynamic Bitcoin rate in the browser tab is enabled in Appearance > Customize > General section.

The footer ticker widget is enabled globally for the whole website in the widget's settings in Cryptocurrency Plugins (WP Dashboard menu) > Crypto Widgets > All Widgets.

The "Header" and "Footer" positions of the ticker enable the ticker globally in the corresponding area. If you want to display the ticker on one page, choose "Anywhere" position and insert the shortcode of the ticker wherever you want on the page.

Introduction to Layouts

Layouts is a tool that lets you create custom headers, footers, and other website sections, and is based on the Elementor Page Builder.

Layouts are available after you activate the ThemeREX Addons plug-in. After the activation, a new menu item appears in your WordPress admin panel.

Your theme comes with a number of pre-built Layouts. If you've imported the full content, they will be available for you from the start. Otherwise, you would need to generate them in Theme Panel > ThemeREX Addons > Theme Specific > Create Layouts.

Creating Layouts

In order to create a layout, navigate to Layouts (WP Dashboard) > Add New.

Layouts are built in a similar way you build regular pages with Elementor Page Builder. The difference is that Layouts expand the default list of widgets by adding layout-specific widgets and provide you with additional section settings.

Please check this article for detailed information regarding layouts customization.
You can also view our video tutorials about header and footer layouts customization.

When creating a Layout, first you need to specify the correct Layout type in the Item Options panel:

  1. Header - the layout is applied only to output in the header area. It appears in the list of available headers in Appearance > Customize > Header > Header Style > Custom.
  2. Footer - the layout is applied only to output in the footer area. It appears in the list of available footers in Appearance > Customize > Footer > Footer Style > Custom.

    You can also choose a different Header/Footer Layout for a specific page. Simply open that page in the WordPress admin, and in the Theme Options > Header/Footer panel edit the Header Style and Footer Style settings.

  3. Submenu - the layout is used to create custom dropdown menu without installing Uber Menu/Mega Menu plug-ins. You can apply the submenu layout in the Appearance > Menus > Layout of submenu (optional) field.
    "Layout of submenu" field appears only when at least one submenu layout is created.
    Please view this article for more information about submenu layouts.
  4. Sidebar - the layout is applied only to output in the sidebar area. It helps create custom sidebars using Elementor page builder. Thus, you are not limited to standard widgets and can use any elements available in the page builder. It appears in the list of available sidebars in the Appearance > Customize > General/Mobile/Blog/Shop/Plugin Settings sections or in page > Theme Options > Content > Sidebar style > Custom.
  5. Blog - custom style or template to output the Blog Stream page or posts elements in Elementor "Blogger" widget, thus creating a blog stream page or page blocks with unique overall look. Use it in combination with Blog Item Parts widget, that lets you insert any post parts (featured image, title, meta data, content, custom fields) to page in any combination and in any quantity.
  6. Custom - the standard layout fragment that can be added into a web page using an Elementor Page Builder Layouts widget.

Custom Layouts can be especially useful when you need to use the same section in different places on your website. Instead of building it from scratch on every new page, you can save it as a custom Layout and insert using a Layouts widget.

In order to add a custom Layout to a web page:

  1. Add a new Elementor Page Builder section in the website editing screen.
  2. In the left panel with elementor elements open "ThemeREX Addons Layouts" group, drag and drop the Layouts widget from the panel into your section.
  3. Choose the desired custom Layout or Elementor's template from the dropdown list ("Type" option should be set to "Default").

Blog Layout is just a scheme showing the position of post elements like featured image, post title, meta data, excerpt, etc. Use Blog Item Parts widget to output each element, like in the example below.

You can apply the blog layouts to:

  • Blog Stream Page - create a page, choose "Blog Archive" template and in the Theme Options > Content > Blog style option find your blog layout. Treat the screenshot below just as an example.
  • Blogger Widget - open a page/post, in the Elementor widget panel navigate to "ThemeREX Addons Elements group" and insert Blogger widget to the content area.

Layout Templates

In case there are some page fragments with more or less identical structure, you can create one layout using the Elementor Page Builder, save it as a template and use it as a foundation for your new Layout. Thus, there is no need to create a new layout or block each time. Please see this article for more information.

Open a Layout and click on the Add Template button from the editing screen (Elementor Page Builder's backend editor). Scroll down to view the available templates:

Creating a Mobile Header in Layouts

Layouts is a preferred way of creating a mobile header since it gives you flexibility and control over your elements. Creating a mobile header is similar to creating a standard header, except there are several features you should know about in order to use Layouts more efficiently. Please see the official elementor video tutorial or article for more information.

We recommend you to create separate custom header layout for mobile devices and specify it in the Appearance > Customize > Mobile section. This will improve the website loading speed on mobile devices.

Layouts Widgets

Layout-specific widgets are additional widgets available for editing/creating layouts. They are especially useful for building headers and footers. You can find layout-specific widgets under the ThemeREX Addons Layouts group in the Elementor widgets panel.

Layouts: Blog Item Parts

Inserts any post parts (featured image, title, meta data, content, custom fields) to your custom page fragment. This widget outputs 1 post part at a time. If you want to create a page block with unique structure, just use as many "Blog Item Parts" widgets as you need and output post parts in any combination and in any quantity.

Layouts: Cart

Displays a shopping cart icon (in case the WooCommerce plug-in is active). When clicked, the icon triggers a window with additional shopping details.

For narrow and normal row types, the cart displays the number of products in the cart, the sum total, and an icon label. The compact row type has a shopping cart with a product counter badge only.

Layouts: Currency

Displays a currency button, in case the WooCommerce and WooCommerce Currency Switcher plug-ins are active.

Should be used for headers only. Displays a featured image of the current post/page. Often used in combination with the Title and Breadcrumbs widget.

The widget has to contain at least one element, otherwise the featured image would be hidden.

Layouts: Iconed Text

Inserts an icon and two text lines. It is possible to add a URL to the icon.

Layouts

Inserts content in different ways, depending on the type of the layout:

  • Default - displays one of the custom layouts available in WP Dashboard > Layouts post type. Please click here to view the list of available custom layouts.
  • Popup - creates popup notifications that appear whenever a user clicks on a link or a button.
  • Panel - creates a panel with some content/menu that appears whenever a user clicks on a link or a button.
  • Panel Menu - creates a panel with menu that appears whenever a user clicks on a link or a button. Please see "Panel with menu" layouts group section of this documentation file or demo Burger Menu page for demo examples (all examples except for "Default").

Select which type of the layout to use in the layouts widget's content settings.

The algorithm of building a popup notification or panel:

  1. Create a custom layout with required content that will be displayed in the popup window or panel. If you want to use simple text/image or shortcode (like grid gallery, mailchimp form, etc.), just omit this step.
  2. Add a new Elementor Page Builder section to the page. In the left panel with elementor elements open "ThemeREX Addons Layouts" group, drag and drop the Layouts widget from the panel into your section. Select the desired widget's type (popup/panel) and custom Layout from the dropdown list (Layout field) or enter simple text/shortcode/image from the Media Library in the Content field (if "Layout" option is set to "Use content").
    You may navigate to Edit Layouts > Advanced tab to enclose the elements with paddings or set the background image/color.
  3. In the widget's settings under the Content tab, Popup (panel) ID field, assign the ID to your popup/panel, e.g. example_popup.
  4. Use the popup/panel ID, preceded by a pound sign (#), as an address for the link or button that should trigger the popup/panel.

Layouts: Language

In case the WPML plug-in is active, the widget displays button (drop-down list) that allows choosing the necessary language for the current page.

Layouts: Login

Displays a login/logout link with an icon.

The text for the checkbox "I agree..." (registration form) is set in Appearance > Customize > General > Text with Privacy Policy link.
In order to add/customize the Privacy Policy link, navigate to Settings (WP Dashboard) > Privacy and specify the page that will be used as a Privacy Policy one.

PLEASE NOTE! In case you are planning to use the registration form without consent checkbox, just leave the "Text with Privacy Policy link" option empty in the Appearance > Customize > General section!

Inserts a logo (any image). In case there is no logo (both in layouts and in the Customizer), the theme displays the website title and description specified in Appearance > Customize > Logo & Site Identity.

Uploading Logo

The algorithm of our actions would be as follows:

  1. Select the Layout where you want to place the new logo by going to Layouts > All Layouts.
  2. Locate the Elementor Layouts: Logo widget (ThemeREX Addons Layouts group) and click on the Edit button.
  3. Upload a new logo in the panel > Content tab and save the changes.

IMPORTANT! Logo is available for editing for each particular layout. If no logo is selected in the Layouts: Logo widget, the initial logo from the Appearance > Customize > Logo & Site Identity will be used.

Layouts: Menu

Displays one of available menus. Specify a preferred menu in the Menu field by its name, like on the screenshot below.

The Layout parameter allows selecting the Menu Layout:

  • Default - standard menu with links.
  • Burger - just a button that opens Mobile menu.

Direction of the menu items: Horizontal or Vertical.

Specify default behavior for a responsive menu in the Content tab:

  • Mobile button - choose whether to replace the menu with a menu button when switching to the mobile version.
  • Add to the mobile menu - use this menu as a mobile menu only.

Layouts: Single Post Meta

Displays elements from meta data of the current post (categories, post author, post date, post counters, share links, edit link).

Layouts: Search

Adds a search button/input field. There are 3 styles available:

  • Normal - a standard search field.
  • Expand - displays a search button that expands a search field on click.
  • Fullscreen - displays a search button that expands the search field to the entire screen.

Layouts: Title

Displays a title and breadcrumbs of the currently opened page/post.

Layouts: Widgets

Displays one of the available widget sets (sidebars). You can choose the number of widget columns. In case 0 is chosen, the number of columns equals to the number of widgets in the selected widget set.

Elementor Section Settings

Layouts have an extended number of settings for Section, default Elementor element.

Choose which section you want to edit, click on the Edit Section button and go to the panel > Edit Section > Custom Layout.

  • Row type - defines a row type. It accepts the following values:

    • Inherit - a default row with no layout-specific styles applied.
    • Narrow - the smallest type of row. The Elementor widgets feature a small font size and small icons. The Layouts: Iconed Text widget places text in 1 line (even for two-line option).
    • Compact - a smaller variation of the normal row type. The Elementor widgets have a standard font size and small icons. The Iconed Text widget puts text in 1 line (even for the two-line option).
    • Normal - a row of a normal height. The Elementor widgets inserted into this type of row have a standard font size, and medium-sized icons. The Layouts: Iconed Text widget features text divided into 2 lines.
  • Delimiter - adds a border to the row's bottom.
  • Fix this row when scroll - 'fixes' the row to the top of the page (or to the last 'fixed row'). Useful for creating sticky navigation.

  • Hide this row on unfix - hides the row until scrolling down.
  • Hide on the Frontpage - hides the row on the page assigned as the Homepage (Frontpage) in Settings > Reading. In case the Blog Feed page is assigned as the Homepage, the row stays visible.

As a free addition to this theme, we have included a unique ThemeREX Addons plug-in. Once activated, it allows expanding the options of the theme noticeably. These add-ons allow you to use custom widget sets and custom Elementor widgets, show custom post types, set links to your social profiles as well as some advanced theme-specific settings.

After plug-in's installation, the "ThemeREX Addons" menu item should appear in the "Theme Panel" tab in WordPress dashboard menu panel.

Below is a brief description of all the available settings.

General

Settings of this tab define the general behavior of your theme.

General Settings

  • Debug Mode - Enable debug functions and theme profiler output.

    IMPORTANT! There is a separate file for each script snippet .js and style related .css data. For better theme performance the system automatically re-compiles/re-merges these files into a single .js/.css related one after every "Save Options" button click in Customizer (Appearance > Customize) and ThemeREX Addons settings (Theme Panel > ThemeREX Addons).
    In case the "Debug Mode" is on, the theme does not run the re-compile/re-merge mode, so each and every file loads separately. That is why we do recommend to turn this mode on only if you need to edit/customize the source script and style related files. Please do not edit the following (re-merged) files: trx_addons.css, trx_addons.js, __colors.css, __style.css, __scripts.js.
  • Disable new Widgets Block Editor - disable new Widgets Block Editor, if after the update to WordPress 5.8+ you are having trouble with editing widgets or working in Customizer. New Widgets Block Editor is used in WordPress 5.8+ instead of classic widgets panel.

Dynamic Background Add-on

The Dynamic Background Add-on allows you to create unusuall background effects for some page elements. It fills the page section with background color gradually in a form of a circle or with fade effect, while you are scrolling down the page.

Once the add-on is active, a "Dynamic Background" section will appear in the Elementor widgets' settings, under "Advanced" tab. These settings are available for page elements (icon, title, text, image, etc.) and NOT for sections and columns.

In order to add such effect to your page, please choose a page element (icon, title, text, image, etc.) and in the widget's settings identify this page element as a Starting point. Specify the rest parameters, like ID, background effect, background color, delay, etс. Now you need to find another page element and identify it as an End point.

The effect begins when your starting breakpoint becomes visible in the window and lasts till the end breakpoint reaches the visible area of the window. The starting and end breakpoints should have the same ID to make a "pair".

The "Shift" option indicates the shift in percentage (from -100% to 100% of the screen height) of the start/end point of the effect from the bottom of the window, which is the default point of moving.
The negative shift means that the start/end point of the effect will not reach the bottom of the window.
The positive shift means that the effect will start/end when the point reaches the bottom of the window and moves set distance downward (in percentage from the window height).

The sections with dynamic background effects can intersect.

Our theme is fully compatible with an extremely powerful Revolution Slider plug-in. It allows you to create an unlimited number of sliders and set anywhere you want on the page within the necessary widget. Please view our article for more information about revolution slider customization.

Check the following links for more information regarding the Revolution Slider functionality:

Below is an example of the Revolution Slider's main page back-end (default slider style with slides ):

Custom CSS code is specified in Module General Options > CSS/jQuery section.

Slider Revolution with images from posts/pages, etc.

The Revolution slider also allows you to use the images from the already created website elements like posts/pages as well as from social profiles streams, etc. This method also preserves adding the needed information (text/buttons) or effects via slider layers. Such images can be specified in Slider Settings. Just open a particular slider, navigate to "Module General Options" tab (gear icon) and set the required parameters in the Content section.

Add Slider Revolution via Elementor Widget

You can add sliders to your page using elements in Elementor Page Builder. Insert either the Revolution Slider widget (WordPress group) or Slider widget (ThemeREX Addons Elements group) to the page and choose slider engine - Slider Revoluion. You can also use a shortcode, like [rev_slider alias="main-slider"][/rev_slider].

Add Slider Revolution via Widgets area

You can also add Slider Revolution via widgets and place the slider not only in the header of the page (might vary, depending on default sidebars locations available for a particular theme).

Please note! In case you do not have a slider set up (but the Revolution Slider plug-in is already installed), you need to create it first and fill with slides by navigating to Slider Revolution tab in the WP Dashboard side menu.

  1. Navigate to the Appearance > Widgets in the WordPress dashboard menu.
  2. Locate the Revolution Slider widget and drag and drop it to any of the available widget sets. Specify the necessary parameters and click on "Save" button. See the example below.
  3. Navigate to the page on which you want your slider to appear and enable the necessary widget area in the Theme Options panel. For example, let's activate Slider in the "Header Widgets" section (Theme Options > Header tab).
  4. Once it's finished click "Update" and "Preview Changes" buttons to see how it will look on the front-end.

WP GDPR Compliance

The WP GDPR Compliance plug-in allows you to make your website GDPR-compliant. It currently supports Contact Form 7 (>= 4.6), Gravity Forms (>= 1.9), WooCommerce (>= 2.5.0) and WordPress Comments.

Using the WP GDPR Compliance plug-in does NOT guarantee complete compliance to General Data Protection Regulation.

Check the links below for more information about this plug-in:

  1. Official WordPress page.
  2. Official plug-in page.

IMPORTANT! According to General Data Protection Regulation, you need to make your forms compliant. Some pre-built forms, that come with this theme, already have the corresponding "I agree..." checkboxes. For newly created forms, navigate to Tools (WP Dashboard) > WP GDPR Compliance, enable a GDPR form tag integration for a particular form and save the changes. You can specify and activate the Privacy Policy page in the Tools (WP Dashboard) > WP GDPR Compliance > Settings tab.

We recommend using Poedit software for translation-related purposes.

To translate the theme to your language, please follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Poedit software.
  2. Navigate to the theme/skins/your-skin-name/languages/ folder and locate .pot file. Copy it to your desktop for editing.
  3. Double click on the .pot file. In the Poedit window click on the "Create New Translation" button, choose the necessary language of the translation from the dropdown list and click "OK."
  4. Now select the constant text string you need to translate from the "Source text - English" field and type in the necessary translation into the "Translation" field.
    You can translate as much as you want, just go through the file and click on each string in "Poedit" and add your translation.
  5. Next, you have to save the changes to your .po file using the naming convention based on the language code (e.g. pt for Portuguese) followed by the country code (for instance _BR for Brazil). To do that click on the "sheet" icon (you can also use hotkeys CMD + Shift + S in OS X or Win+S in Windows) and type in the name according to the screenshot below.
    The first lower-case letters define the language, whereas the second upper-case letter defines the country. In most cases, the language and country are the same, like “de_DE” for Germany.
    However, there is a difference for languages like English or Portuguese, which are spoken in several countries natively. In this case, the difference is in the first and second letter pairs; for the UK, the code would be en_GB, whereas the en_US stands for the USA. If you are not familiar with the codes for your native language and country, then visit the GNU website. See Language Codes and Country Codes for the lists of codes.

    PLEASE NOTE! If you use the wrong naming convention WordPress can not process your translation.
  6. When saving your .po file, Poedit automatically creates a new .mo file, with the same naming convention. According to the example above, the file would be called pt_BR.mo.
  7. Upload the .po and .mo files you just created to the .../languages folder. Make sure these files are in the same directory as the default.pot one.
  8. Our theme is using ThemeREX Addons plug-in, so some translation should be done in language files of this plug-in in the .../wp-content/plugins/trx_addons/languages directory. There is also a trx_addons.pot file in this directory.
    Generate the .po and .mo files according to your language. See the file names on the example below:
    trx_addons-pt_BR.po, trx_addons-pt_BR.mo.
    Make sure that the language of your files is the same as in your WordPress admin panel > Settings > General Settings section.

For more information on how to use Poedit, please check the following resources:

This chapter is for those who whould like to speed up their websites and care about the page loading speed. There are a lot of different ways to make your website work faster, but we will focus on caching plug-ins we have used on our demos, though they are not provided with the theme.

A lot of users access the website at the same time. This makes the server work slowly and takes more time to load the web page for each user. Caching is the way to store the current version of your web page on the server and prevent from sending requests to the server for each user each time.

We have used two caching plug-ins on our demos: WP Rocket and WP-Optimize. The WP Rocket is installed on Default Skin demo, while the WP-Optimize plug-in is installed on the demos with the rest skins.

Below you can find short description of these two caching plug-ins as well as some main settings from our demos. Please feel free to play around with the plug-ins' settings yourself in order to receive the better result.

WP Rocket

This is a paid caching plug-in (not provided with the theme) that allows you to improve the speed of your WordPress site, SEO rankings and conversions. No coding is required. Please click here for more information about the plug-in. The official documentation is available here.

WP Rocket plug-in improves the web page loading time right upon activation.

PLEASE NOTE! There is no unique recommended configuration of the plug-in's settings, suitable for every website. The same settings can work differently on different websites. By default, some settings may be activated or disabled, depending on your individual WordPress setup and hosting.

Below you can find the examples of plug-in's configuration used on our Default demo skin. Please feel free to find out your own optimal combination of the settings. Read the official guide and watch the video: How to Find the Best Settings for your Site.

Please navigate to Settings (WP Dashboard) > WP Rocket and customize plug-in's settings.

PLEASE NOTE! We do not recommend using File Optimization.

Some official video tutorials are available right through WP admin panel: Settings (WP Dashboard) > WP Rocket > Tutorials.

WP-Optimize - Clean, Compress, Cache

WP-Optimize is all-in-one WordPress performance plug-in (not provided with the theme) that is responsible for cleaning your database, compressing images and caching your website.

Please check the links below for more information about this plug-in:

  1. Official plug-in page
  2. WordPress plug-in page
  3. Official plug-in documentation
