After the activation you see this notice at top of your dashboard. This theme requires those three additional plugins and you need to install those.

Please click on Begin insalling plugins.

Step 1
Envato Toolkit
The Envato WordPress Toolkit enables you to access your Envato WordPress purchases from within your WordPress Dashboard. It allows you to not only install themes, but also to receive update notifications and update automatically, just like regular WordPress themes.
Layer Slider
The most advanced Responsive WordPress Slider Plugin with the famous Parallax Effect and 3D Transitions! You can use LayerSlider to create a breathtaking Image Slideshow, Banner Rotator or Content Slider to your site!

Please select all plugins and select Install option on dropdown and finally click on Apply button.

Step 2

You will see this page after activated plugins.

Step 3

Configure Envato Toolkit Plugin

Envato Toolkit plugin requires MarketPlace username and API Key. You can get API key from your Settings tab of ThemeForest account. Lets provide those infomation and get theme update anytime and easily.

Step 4

One Click Demo Data Options

Theme has dedicated data option. You should click one of those link and select your desired home page layout. Action will set few important tasks including selection of Home page, Main navigation setting and Sidebar widgets when you click on Import Demo Data button.

Demo data

Please wait for a while until imports all the content.

Revolution Slider Content

Revolution slider exports slider content with image and css files into a zip archive. But we don't want to include all those files into our theme zip and increase theme archive size. If the theme is getting bigger, you'll face many problems related that for example, exceed of upload file size limit or execution time problem.

Therefore this option includes only slider content and layers. Images and css styling come from online demo site and if you don't see proper layer styling there, please insert demo sliders from dummy-data folder. Or you can edit those sliders and replace your images and styling.

 

Full content Demo site setup

Previous option helps you to include minimized demo content on your site reason for quick include. But you can have full demo data with regular XML data imports.

  1. Go to Tools → Import
  2. Choose WordPress from the list.
  3. Upload the demo content.xml using the form provided on download.
  4. You will be asked to map the authors in this export file to users on the blog. For each author, you may choose to map to an existing user on the blog or to create a new user.
  5. You will then have the choice to import attachments, so click on the “Download and import file attachments” box.
  6. Please be patient while WordPress imports all the content. Posts, Pages, Projects, and Menus are imported. You will need assign the menu a theme location & you’ll need to configure widgets. This is a limitation of WordPress’ import system.

Note

Please make sure you backup your existing theme folder before updating. Additionally we recommend performing the update on a development site before making it on your live site.

Via Envato Toolkit Plugin (recommended)

Hope you have provided your account information in Envato Toolkit plugin. If you go to the plugin page, you'll see similar to following image. Let's click on Update automatically link at right bottom. This is a most efficienat and easy way to integrate latest verion on your site.

Update

After clicking to auto-update, you’ll see the confirmation that everything worked correctly.

Via WordPress theme uploader

Go to the Appearance => Themes and activate another theme than Ammo such as TwentyTwelve, TwentyThirteen or Ammo child theme. Delete the old version of the theme because folder name existing error comes up when we try to install it without deletion. Then install the theme again as you see early in this documentation.

Via FTP client application

Usually updating a theme means replacing the old files with the new ones. You can see changelog.txt file from the new download archive and you can get updated files list as modified/added and deleted. Upload and overwrite those files on your theme directory.

If theme changed lots of files and you really hard to collect changed files, there is a better way to do it when it comes to WordPress themes.

WordPress treats two version of the same theme as different themes. That is, if you have Ammo v1.2 and v1.3 in your wp-content/themes folder they are treated as two different themes independent of each other.

That means you can have multiple version of the same theme installed on your blog. So whenever there is a new version of your theme available, instead of replacing or deleting the files of the older version follow this procedure.

  1. Try to upload new theme archive to the site
  2. If the folder name of the new version clashes with the old version, rename the folder of new version.
  3. Upload the new version to your wp-content/themes folder via FTP or through the interface provided by your web host or by using the upload feature in WordPress.
  4. Activate the new version from your dashboard.

The main advantage of following the above procedure is you can quickly switch back to the old version of the theme if you find any problems with the new version or if it clashes with any plugins you are using.

Theme Options panel has many options those help you to control your site. You have to know only where your desired options exist and how to use them. Please take some time to navigate through each tab and read option's description.

Activate Page Builder

Starting Page Builder

Add Element and Control buttons

Choose an Element. All elements are based on WP shortcode.

All elements have common controls such as Edit, Clone and Remove. Also you can order and arrange elements with Drag and Drop.

You can save current layout as a Template. Then you can apply it on another pages.

Short video about Page Builder

A Post Format is a piece of meta information that can be used by a theme to customize its presentation of a post.

Post Options

Ammo supports WP 3.6 post format and this style is inherited by 3.6. But it doesn't matter and works equally if you are using previous version of WordPress core.

  • aside - Typically styled without a title. Similar to a Facebook note update.
  • gallery - A gallery of images. Post will likely contain a gallery shortcode and will have image attachments.
  • link - A link to another site. Themes may wish to use the first <a href=""> tag in the post content as the external link for that post. An alternative approach could be if the post consists only of a URL, then that will be the URL and the title (post_title) will be the name attached to the anchor for it.
  • image - A single image. The first <img /> tag in the post could be considered the image. Alternatively, if the post consists only of a URL, that will be the image URL and the title of the post (post_title) will be the title attribute for the image.
  • quote - A quotation. Probably will contain a blockquote holding the quote content. Alternatively, the quote may be just the content, with the source/author being the title.
  • status - A short status update, similar to a Twitter status update.
  • video - A single video. The first <video /> tag or object/embed in the post content could be considered the video. Alternatively, if the post consists only of a URL, that will be the video URL. May also contain the video as an attachment to the post, if video support is enabled on the blog (like via a plugin).
  • audio - An audio file. Could be used for Podcasting.
  • chat - A chat transcript.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of WooCommerce log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to: Plugins > Add New.

In the search field type “WooCommerce” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click “yes” and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

It’s possible at this stage that you will be taken to a page requesting the FTP details of your webserver. This will be the case if you’ve not installed a plugin on this particular installation of WordPress before. If so, simply fill in your details to complete the installation.

Manual installation


The manual installation involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin to your computer.
  2. Unzip the file.
  3. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins directory.
  4. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.

After you’ve installed and activated the plugin, be sure to select ‘Install WooCommerce Pages‘ to get started.
