Installation

WordPress Installation

WordPress is one of the most popular CMS in the world which makes it the best choice for your website.
You can download and install WordPress from the official website using WordPress very setup steps called “Famous 5-minute install”.

For more information on WordPress, please, visit the WordPress Codex page.

Theme requirements:

Please check the recommended server configuration for proper theme functioning:

  • PHP version 7.4 and higher
  • memory_limit – 128M or Higher
  • max_execution_time – 180 or Higher
  • upload_max_filesize – 32M or Higher
  • post_max_size – 32M or Higher

Make sure your server is set up properly and the theme and content has been loaded correctly.
Enough server configuration will also ensure fast speed and increased performance.

Note Please check theme requirements Before you start with the theme.
 

Theme Installation

Assuming that the WordPress website is already set (for setting up a WordPress blog refer to WordPress setup documentation), the next step is to install the theme. There are 2 main ways to upload the theme:

Option 1: Via “Envato Market” plugin (recommended)

If you already have the “Envato Market Plugin” installed on your site then just go to Admin > Envato Market and install the theme from there. If not, then download the plugin by clicking on this link and install the plugin on your site. After installation, you need to configure it. Just go to this link to know how to configure this plugin.

Then just go to Admin > Envato Market plugin menu and install the theme. The theme would be available to install so you can easily install it.

Option 2: Via FTP client

Use an FTP client such as FileZilla, FireFTP, or Cyberduck (if you are a Mac user) to connect to your hosting account. Navigate to where WordPress is installed and locate the /wp-content/themes/ directory.

Find the zip file called “Car Dealer.zip” in the downloaded file, unzip it and upload the folder to the folder /wp-content/themes/.

After all the files are uploaded, just go to Admin > Appearance and activate the Car Dealer theme.

Option 3: Through the native WordPress theme uploader (not recommended due to big size of theme)

First, you need to unzip the downloaded file and find the zip file called Car Dealer.zip. After this, you have to go to the Admin panel > Appearance > Themes (see the image on the right), click on the Install Themes tab, and in this section in the top left corner click on the link Upload. After that, a new form will appear to upload the theme. Select the Car Dealer.zip file from your local file system and submit the form.

Plugins Installation

After theme installation and activation, it will redirect you to the welcome screen, where you can start the installation of the required plugin by clicking the “Proceed” button. Clicking on “Proceed” will lead you to the plugin installation page.

If you are guided to some other page, instead of the Welcome screen, it will display a notice in Admin Panel to install required and recommended plugins. You can click “Begin installing Plugins” to proceed with plugin installation.

Car Dealer requires some plugins to be installed to run various theme functionalities properly. Few plugins will be installed from WordPress Plugins Repository and few plugins are bundled with the theme. On the plugin installation page, it will display the list of required and recommended plugins.

Choose plugins and select “Install” in the Bulk Action dropdown and click Apply button. First, it will install the selected plugins and then it will display the same list to activate the installed plugins.

You can manage (install/uninstall, activate/deactivate) plugins from Plugin Manager (Admin Panel > Plugins). For more information on plugin, management go to WordPress Codex – Plugin Management.
