2. Plugin Installation

After install the theme, you’ll see a notice in your Dashboard asking you to install and activate a few plugins. A few plugins are required and other recommend to work with our theme.

Click in Begin installing plugins to start the process. You’ll see a list of plugins available to installation.

You’ll see that four plugins are marked as Required and should be installed by you in order to fully use the theme.

  • WPBakery Visual Composer and Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer must be installed, else you won’t have access to any elements neither Visual Builder.
  • Mega Menu Addon and Revolution Slider are used to support mega menu functions and to support sliders, respectively. They aren’t required but you’ll probably use the Mega Menu and Sliders functions, right?!
  • The other plugins aren’t required and if you won’t use they you shouldn’t select and install them. But if you don’t install these plugins, a few features will be missing, like shop that uses WooCommerce and forms that uses Ninja Forms to work properly.

For a usual setup I’ll select the Required Plugins (the four first plugins), WooCommerce and Ninja Forms. You can select all they to have access to all features.

Select the plugins to install, select Install in the “Bulk Actions” select and click in Apply.

A few plugins must be downloaded from our private servers, so it can take a while to finish, wait patiently!

After Install…

After finish the installation you must activate the plugins to start using it. Select the plugins again, go to “Bulk Actions” and select Activate, click in Apply.

The plugins will be activated and ready to use.

If you’re using WooCommerce and will download our Dummy Content, click in the option Skip Setup because Woo Pages will be imported automatically. If you won’t install our Dummy Content, click in Install WooCommerce Pages.

If you finished to install the recommended plugins, just click in Dismiss this notice in the Dashboard box to disable the alert. You can back to the installation page later at Appearance — Install Plugins.

Now you can know how to import the demo in your local installation to modify it in the next step!
