API Key

To get 1-click updates for YOOtheme Pro you have to configure your YOOtheme API key. Read the Updating documentation for more information.


Logo and Favicon

To set up the website's logo, take a look at the Site & Logo documentation. Set a favicon in the Settings of YOOtheme Pro.


Widget Assignment

A frequently asked question is how to assign widgets to different pages. We recommend to install the official WordPress plugin Jetpack, which offers this feature.

Note When using a YOOtheme Pro demo package, the Jetpack plugin is already installed but needs to be activated manually. Read more about it in the Installation documentation.


Customization

For modifications, it is recommended to use child themes. That way you can change theme files without the risk of losing your customizations while updating. You should never modify files directly in the yootheme theme folder.
