Installation

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

Install YOOtheme Pro into your existing WordPress site or start with one of our thematic demo websites. They are available as a WordPress demo package which is a full WordPress installation including YOOtheme Pro and the corresponding theme demo content. 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, images and style.


YOOtheme Pro Theme

Download the YOOtheme Pro theme yootheme_wp_VERSION.zip and install it by following the official WordPress theme installation instructions.

Install WordPress theme

Note Make sure you have not downloaded a WordPress demo package. It's a full WordPress installation and cannot be installed into an existing WordPress site. Layouts and styles from all YOOtheme Pro demo packages can be loaded into your existing site within YOOtheme Pro itself.


WordPress Demo Packages

Browse the Themes page and download one of the WordPress demo packages NAME_demo_package_wp.zip. Unzip it to your web server directory. Now just follow the regular WordPress installation instructions.

Most WordPress demo packages make additional use of 3rd party plugins. They are free and already preinstalled and configured in the demo package. Here is the list of all plugins.

Name Description Documentation
Jetpack Assign widgets to different pages. The plugin needs to be activated manually. View
Advanced Custom Fields Add custom fields to posts and categories View
Custom Post Type UI Create custom post types and taxonomies View
Powerful Posts per Page Define the number of posts for custom post types and taxonomies View
Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order Manually sort terms, e.g. categories View
WordPress Popular Posts Order posts, pages and custom post types by the number of views or comments View

Some 3rd party plugins require further actions after installing the demo package. Open Plugins in the WordPress administration to check which plugins are used in the demo package.

  1. The Jetpack plugin needs to be activated manually. Watch the widget visibility tutorial on how to activate it.

  2. If the Advanced Custom Fields plugin is installed, the demo package most likely uses the Repeater field, which is only available in the Advanced Custom Fields Pro plugin. This is a commercial plugin and is not bundled with the demo package. You can install it afterwards, and the demo website will look just like on our demo server. If you don't have ACF Pro, the demo package will not look the same, but to achieve a similar result, you can create a fixed number of separate custom fields instead.
