Please Note That:
  • Some hostings have a restriction on a size of a file that you are uploading. If you have any warning, you will contact your hosting provider. They should increase your maximum upload size. Or you can refer this article and try doing it by yourself.
  • If you get the error message: "The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.", it means that you didn't upload the theme package. You will need to extract your package and install the drile.zip file inside.

Theme Requirements

Theme Activation

To run WordPress your host just needs a couple of things:

  • PHP version 7.3 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater
Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

White screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

Please note that:

- Before importing, you should check and change your PHP settings:

  • max_input_time: 300
  • max_execution_time: 300
  • memory_limit: 128M or bigger
  • upload_max_filesize: 8M or bigger
  • post_max_size: 8M or bigger

Required Plugins

After activating the theme, you will get a notification about installing the required plugins. You go to Appearance > Install Plugins to install them.

Please note that:
  • You don't directly purchase the Elementor Page Builder and Revolution Slider plugins. So you can not update them by yourself. It is also not recommended. When they have a new version, we will be careful to test and release the new theme version.
  • You should also not update other plugins without updating the theme. Please see our changelog to make sure that the current theme version is compatible with the new plugin version.

Update Theme

There are 3 ways to Update the theme:

First of all, do a backup on your local computer. There is a lot of tool and plugins available to help you to do this. Just find one with a good rating and get it set up now, not later: https://wordpress.org/plugins/search.php?q=backup+wp

ALWAYS make a backup of your entire site before you update. Usually. the update installs within seconds and cause zero problems, but it's better to be safe than sorry.

How to upgrade?

The first thing to know is that if you have modified PHP, CSS, JS files into the core theme, the update will overwrite what you did (that's the reason we suggest doing your modifications in the child theme).

The update will NOT affect your content such as your blog post, photos, videos, option theme settings, WordPress settings. Basically, the update replaces the PJP, JavaScript and CSS files of the theme, not your database, and not the WordPress core files.

OPTION 1 - AUTOMATIC UPDATE:

  1. Download and Install the official Envato Market WordPress plugin here
  2. Follow the instruction on the Envato Market WordPress plugin official page.
  3. When the theme update is done, please go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Install Plugin and click "update" for every plugin that requires an update.
  4. If for some reason you see some code on your front-end website after the theme update, make sure that all the required plugin are activated by going to WP-Admin > Plugins.

OPTION 2 - MANUAL UPDATE: 

1. Redownload the theme files on ThemeForest (ThemeForest always have the latest version of the theme). So login to your Envato account, then go to Downloads, and download "Installable Wordpress file Only" package.

2. Go to Wp-Admin > Appearance >  Themes and activate another theme such Twenty Fifteen.

3. Delete the Theme you want to update. (Yeah, you must delete the theme before re-uploading the same theme).

4. Go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Themes > Add New and Upload the theme .ZIP file you've just downloaded from ThemeForest.

5. Activate your theme by clicking the "Activate button".

6. Make sure to reactivate the plugins by going to WP-Admin > Plugins. 

7. When the theme update is done, please go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Install Plugin and click "update" for every plugin that requires an update.

8. If for some reason you see some code on your front-end website after the theme update, make sure that all the required plugin are activated by going to WP-Admin > Plugins.

9. If one of your plugins has not been updated (ex: WPBakery Page Builder), go to WP-Admin > Plugins and delete the plugin then go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Install Plugins and reinstall the plugins. Make sure to "activate" it again.

OPTION 3:

If deleting a theme makes your nervous, or you have an issue when uploading the theme via the WordPress dashboard, you can upload it manually by FTP.

1. Redownload the theme files on ThemeForest (ThemeForest always have the latest version of the theme). So login to your Envato account, then go to Downloads, and download "Installable Wordpress file Only" package.

2. Unzip the zip file on your computer

3. Rename the root folder to something like "themename-new".

4. By using an FTP software (such as FileZilla), connect to your FTP.

5. Upload the folder to .../wp-content/themes/ (so you should have /wp-content/themes/themename-new/)

6. Once everything has been uploaded, go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Themes and activate your new theme.

7. Make sure to reactivate the plugins by going to WP-Admin > Plugins. If one of your plugins has not been updated (ex: Visual Composer), go to WP-Admin > Plugins and delete the old plugin.

8. Go to WP-Admin > Appearance > Install Plugins and reinstall the plugins. Make sure to "activate" them again.
