Requirements to Import Demo

  • Important: Before Importing Demo make sure you have installed and activated all plugins came with Advisor theme package. (How to Install Required Plugins?)
  • Important: Increasing Memory Limit to 128M at least - See Tips below. (If you are non technical person than just jump to Tip # 5)
  • Tip 1: Increase the limit via PHP.ini file – You can directly increase the PHP Memory Limit if you’ve access to the PHP.ini file. Most small Shared hosting servers won’t give you access to the PHP.ini file. But some servers allow you to create a duplicate PHP.ini in your respective site Directories whose data/values will override the default PHP.ini values. To do that you just need to create a file with the name ‘php.ini’ in the directory where your WordPress site is installed. In that just add the command memory_limit = 128M in it to increase the Memory Limit to 128 MB.

    
                        // Add this in php.ini
                        memory_limit = 128M
                    

    Tip 2: Changing the Memory Limit via wp-config.php – If you don’t want to mess with the PHP.ini file, then you can go for this method. In this you won’t be needing to create any extra file in your Directory. Just Adding define (‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’); in your ‘wp-config.php’ file would increase your PHP Memory Limit to 128 MB.

    
                        // Add this in wp-config.php
                        define (‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘128M’);
                      

    Tip 3: Modifying the .htaccess file to Increase Memory Limit – A Default WordPress Installation won’t have a .htaccess file. But in case you already have it for some purposes like ‘301 Redirection’, just add the command php_value memory_limit 128M in your ‘.htaccess’ file and your memory limit will increase to 128 MB.

    
                        // Add this in .htaccess
                        php_value memory_limit 128M
                      

    Tip 4: Changing the Memory Limit via wp-config.php – This method is just an Alternate to the php.ini method. Because the function of the code we use in this method is same as what we put in the php.ini file.You just need to place the code ini_set (‘memory_limit’,’128M’); in the ‘wp-config.php’ file which is placed in the root folder of your WordPress installation.

    
                        // Add this in wp-config.php
                        ini_set (‘memory_limit’,’128M’);
                      

    Tip 5: Have a talk with your Host – If you are a person who is new to all these techie sounding things then it’s better to have a Live Chat / a Call with your Host right away. It’s your right to talk to them & get the necessary changes you need as you’ve paid for it.

How to Update Theme

Before You Update

 We highly recommend to download the "advisor" folder under “/wp-content/themes/" via FTP before you update the theme, to easily revert back to your previous setup, if the update doesn't work as expected. 

When updating your theme all files under “/wp-content/themes/advisor/” will be replaced.

Always use the  advisor Child Theme for all your file customization, translations etc. as all changes you have directly applied to any of the original theme files will be lost after updating the theme.

Copy+paste the file (s) you want to edit into your child theme folder (keep the identical folder structure of the parent theme). The best resource to learn more about the overall concept of child themes is the official WordPress codex:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

A theme update DOES NOT AFFECT your content or theme settings in any way! Those are stored in your database, the theme update only replaces the theme folder on your server.

Manual theme update process:

  • If you choose to upload the theme zip file advisor.zip via WordPress you have to activate another theme first. Then delete the old advisor theme by clicking the theme screenshot, and then the red “Delete” link in the bottom right corner of the popup. Once deleted you can upload the new theme.
  • Upload via WordPress: Go to Appearance > Themes, click “Add New”. At the top of the page click “Upload”. Browse and select advisor.zip, then click “Install Now”. Once the theme has been uploaded you will see a “Theme installed successfully.” message. Now click “Activate”.
  • Upload via FTP: Upload the "advisor" theme folder via FTP and override the existing theme folder under “/wp-content/themes/advisor/”, login to WordPress and go to Appearance > Themes and click the “Activate” button on the advisor screenshot.

Optional - Theme Translation (Loco Translate & WPML)

The default theme language is english. Go to Settings > General > Site Language and select the language of your choice. This option is only available in WordPress 4.0+. Please update WordPress, if you are running on a version prior to 4.0. Before you start translating anything decide if you simply want to translate the theme into another language or to run a multilingual website. According to your choice follow the instructions below.

Translate The Theme Into Another Language

To translate the theme into another language we highly recommend to use the free Loco Translate plugin. It allows you to translate WordPress plugins and themes directly in your browser. First of all we need to activate the Advisor Child Theme. This is necessary as all parent theme file changes would be lost when you update the theme. Installation of the child theme is identical to the normal theme installation. You can find the advisor-child.zip file when you download and then unzip the “All files and documentation” option from the Downloads section on ThemeForest. Once the Advisor child theme is activated go to Plugins > Add New and search for "Loco Translate", then click "Install". Once installed, activate the plugin. You will now see the "Loco Translate" menu item on the left-hand side of your WordPress admin area, open it. . Click "New language" under the "Advisor Child Theme" row. . On the next screen select your target language, then click "Start translating": . Now you can start translating the theme one string at a time, by simply clicking the string in the table. Use the "Filter translations" search field to find your desired string faster. "Source text" field shows you the original text string. Under "Translation" you can add your translated string.

How To Create A Multilingual Site with WPML

If you want to translate your theme into Multiple language then you need to use WPML plugin, it is a paid plugin.
If you haven’t already downloaded the plugin, make sure to download WPML before reading on. Here are some more links that will help you to built your multilingual site in no time: WPML getting started guide: http://wpml.org/documentation/getting-started-guide/ Using translation management: http://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/using-the-translation-editor/ Translation Management & Features: Languages to "Different languages in directories".
