Installation

Getting YOOtheme Pro up and running takes no longer than a minute.

There are two ways to install YOOtheme Pro:

  • Install WordPress and download just the YOOtheme Pro theme for a clean start. Your website will only adopt the style of the chosen theme.

  • Download and install the YOOtheme Pro demo package. Your website will adopt the whole look of the demo website, including its content and settings.

Note A demo package basically is a complete website and includes WordPress itself. That's why you can't install it into an already existing WordPress installation.


Theme Only

Download and install WordPress. Download the YOOtheme Pro package yootheme_wp_VERSION.zip and install it by following the official WordPress theme installation instructions. If you are installing the theme into an already existing website, the only thing that will be changed by the theme is the style.

Demo Package

A demo package is a full WordPress installation. It includes WordPress, the theme and sample data responsible for the layout and setup of our demo. This is great if you don't want to start from scratch or if you would like to have a peek at how everything is put together. After the installation you can start modifying the demo website with all the layouts, photos and style.

To set up a demo installation, download the package NAME_demo_package_wp.zip and unzip it to your web server directory. Now just follow the regular WordPress installation instructions.

Jetpack

In some of the Wordpress demo packages the Jetpack plugin is used to control widget visibility on different pages.

Important The plugin is already installed and configured, but it needs to be activated with your wordpress.com account. Otherwise, the widgets will be shown on all pages.

If you run the demo package locally, you can also activate the Jetpack development mode. For more information, please have a look at the official Jetpack documentation.


API Key

To enable 1-click updates for YOOtheme Pro and to load layouts from the library, you have to register your YOOtheme API key. Read the Updating documentation for more information.
