Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted theme files. After unzipping the archive you will see the following files:

If you try to install the wrong files you will get missing styles.css file error. This is the most common error meaning you are trying to install incorrect package.

To install "RoseMary" theme you need to have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information in regards to installing the WordPress platform please see the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress or check this great video tutorial.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend you to update your WordPress to the latest stable version 4.0 or higher. This will help to ensure that you are able to utilize all of the latest features of WordPress.

You can install the theme in two ways:

  • via FTP:
    1. Log into your web server with FTP client software
    2. Unzip the RoseMary.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /RoseMary theme folder
    3. Upload the extracted /RoseMary theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder
    4. Activate the newly installed theme. Go to Appearance > Themes and activate it.
  • via WordPress:
    1. Login to admin panel.
    2. Go to Appearance - Themes and click on the Add New button.
    3. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse...(Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select the "RoseMary.zip" and click Install Now button.
    4. After successfull installation click on Activate or go to Appearance - Themes and click on Activate to activate the newly installed theme.
    5. After the theme's activation you will be prompted to install recommended plugins: Instagram Widget, Revolution Slider, Tribe Events Calendar, Visual Composer and WooCommerce.

      All these plugins are included into the theme's archive or optionally can be installed from the WordPress.org repository.
      The theme can function without any of these plugins. But if you want your website look precisely as on demo page, you have to install all recommended plugins and import demo content. This is a good idea if you are building your website from scratch.
      However, if you have an existing website, you should be very careful with plugin installation and importing dummy data - this may affect your site content and structure. Please read the Demo Content article for details.
    6. A new menu item Theme Options will appear.

Plugins Installation

In order to make the theme look exactly as at demo page you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link. Please be aware that Additonal tags plugin is required for this theme to work properly.

You will be redirected to plugins installation page. Check all listed plugins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take few minutes, please ba patient and do not refresh the page.

After installation you will see this notification informing that plugins were installed successfully

Theme Update

IMPORTANT: Before you go ahead with the update please check theme changelog and make sure you backup your old theme folder. Download it to your computer locally.

It is the best practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates. We recommend using free backup plugins for WordPress like WPOnlineBackup

Update Option 1. Update using WordPress uploader

  1. Log into your Themeforest account and navigate to your downloads tab. Find the theme and download “Installable WordPress file”.

  2. Log into your wordPress website and go to Appearance -> Themes
  3. Activate a different theme. Delete the previous version of RoseMary and re-upload the new Wordpress Installable files that you have downloaded from Themeforest in the 1st step.
  4. Once it uploads, choose to activate the theme.
  5. Update the included plugins if you see a notification message letting you know the plugins have a new version.

Update Option 2. Update using FTP client

  1. Log into your Themeforest account and get the last version of the theme as described above.
  2. Connect to your server using desktop client software(we recommend CyberDuck and Filezilla)
  3. Change directory to /wp-content/themes
  4. Remove existing folder with old theme files
  5. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from themeforest and upload to themes folder
  6. Update the included plugins if you see a notification message letting you know the plugins have a new version.

Child Theme

Child theme is for developers willing to make changes to core functions and code. If you are not planning to dig that deep, you can easily skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT: If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend that you install child theme and make changes there. To learn more about the purpose and basis of creation of child theme, visit WordPress Codex on http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.

In the theme pack you will see materials for the child theme. It’s located in the "RoseMary-child.zip" archive. You can install the child theme the same way as you install the main theme (see above in the section "Installation")

A few recommendations on how to use Child Theme from AncoraThemes:

  • Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in the theme. It doesn’t concern only .php-files with templates and basic logics, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc..
  • If you want to change some of the theme’s functions or to add new ones, you need to create file 'functions.php' in the folder "RoseMary-child", and add all required functions into it. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme’s logics.
    IMPORTANT: If you want to replace some functions from other files (except functions.php), e.g. from _wp_utils.php or _utils.php, we strongly do not recommend you copy respective files into the child theme, but you should create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be done so that when updating the theme, new functions from these files are available for use.
    As for other files - putout templates from the folder 'templates', images from the folder 'images' etc. - to make changes, copy theme into the folder 'child theme' and make changes there.

Demo Content

Our themes have simple One click dummy data import tool. It's very easy to use, and you can get precise copy of our demo website in just 1 click, really.

Before installing demo data make sure you have installed all required plugins, please refer to Plugins installation section of this document for details.

IMPORTANT: When installing demo-data ALL EXISTING CONTENTS of your website will be deleted and replaced with the new data! We highly recommend that you install demo data only on blank WordPress install.

To import demo content into a WordPress site follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your site as an administrator.
  2. If you see a message prompting to install WooCommerce, Instagram widget plugins - click on "Begin installing plugins" and install them on the corresponding page. IMPORTANT: The rest of recommended plugins (Revolution Slider, WPML, Visual Composer) are not mandatory for installation of demo content.

  3. Go to Theme Options -> Install Dummy Data:



  4. On the page that showed up please set the required parameters. IMPORTANT: if you want to get a precise copy of our demo site choose "Overwrite existing content"



    Also please note that you have 2 options: Install dummy built with Visual Composer plugin OR import dummy built purely with shortcodes. If you prefer to use Visual Composer to create pages, you should leave default selection intact.
  5. Click on "Install Demo Data" button. IMPORTANT: Please wait while demo data is being copied from our server to your site. It may take a while and depends significantly upon Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.

  6. After the data is successfully imported you will see the "Congratulations" message:

    In 99.9% it works fine, but if something went wrong and data was not imported, please repeat the procedure described above. The system will find the last item imported successfully and you will be able to continue the import.



    If you are making the install on your local machine, please check your internet connection and firewall settings, this may affect data transfer.

Quick start

After the theme's activation and demo content import we are ready to get started with basic theme settings like site title, tagline, logo, favicon etc.

To change your site title and tagline go to Settings -> General Please note, these parameters are important for search engines. For advanced SEO management we recommend installing 3rd party plugins like All In One SEO pack

Another great idea may be setting custom permalinks structure to make them more SEO friendly and human readable. Go to Settings -> Permalinks and make changes according to the example below.

Now let's navigate to Theme Options -> Global Options. It gives you control over most of theme settings from one place. There are quite a lot of parameters here, but luckily the majority of them have default values that suit most of the users. We will take a closer look at them a bit later. Now just a few words about how it all works to give you an idea of our Settings Inheritance System

IMPORTANT: One of the most important theme features is Settings Inheritance System. You can flexibly control the appearance and behaviour of the whole website and individual pages, posts and categories. You can set individual display styles, sliders, output settings of page components (posts), and many more for the required category or for each post separately. In other words you can set global styles and then change them for each page/post/category individually. These changes will override global styles affecting selected elements and their descendant elements.

How it works

First, you should navigate to Theme Options -> Global Options and set global options that will work throughout the entire site. These settings will be default for all categories, pages and posts of the theme:

As we have mentioned above, most of global theme settings can be overridden in the categories, pages and posts. For example, you need to change style of blog stream page for category that contains Portfolio type posts. Navigate to that category, click the edit button and at the bottom of the page change appearance settings according to your needs:

From now on all the posts in this category and its sub-categories will be displayed in the style of "Portfolio (4 columns)".However hover-effect "Dir" will be preserved for them. Posts of the rest of categories (unless individual settings were applied) will be displayed as defined in Theme Options. By the way, the remaining settings of the category that were not changed (overridden) will also be inherited from the parent ones. If the settings were not changed here too - from Theme Options.

If you want to change the appearance of individual post in the category you should find that post, click the "edit" button and set custom parameters. You can find "Post options" at the bottom of the post edit page. These parameters will override both category settings and global settings defined in Theme Options panel.

Homepage

Now, let's proceed with creating our home page. You can create as many options of the main page, as you want.

Some of the pages include the [trx_blogger] shortcode as the basic building brick.

We will show you how to configure one of our Homepages, which is "Home 1" (just the same one as on our demo).

Home 1

The picture below demonstrates the page style we are aiming at:

The algorithm of our actions would be as follows:

  1. Select Pages > Add New and create a new page.
  2. Specify a name for it (e.g. Home 1).
  3. Go to Customization > Header section and disable the following options: Show Page title, Show Breadcrumbs. See the screenshot below.



  4. Now let's add a slider. To do this go to the Customization > Slider tab and enable "Show Slider" option. Then select the necessary "Slider Engine" and the slider itself in the "Revolution Slider: Select slider" field.
    If you don't want to show your contact form on the slider simply turn it off by choosing "No" in the "Show Slider form" field.



  5. On the Sidebars tab choose "Hide" for the "Show main sidebar" option.



  6. Once it's done go to the Blog & Single > Single page section and disable all the parameters like it is shown on the screenshot below.



Now the page is ready for further customization with Visual Composer. Before you start, please check these VC related tutorials. They will give you a basic understanding of how to build a page properly.

  1. Official Visual Composer FAQ page.

  2. Getting Started With Visual Composer Guide.

  3. Visual Composer: A Guide To Drag & Drop Page Building

  4. How to Add Row and Column with Visual Composer.

  5. How to Add Row or Column Background with Visual Composer.

  6. How to Create Empty Space Between Elements with Custom Height.

The whole page is build with the following elements: Rows, Block containers, Content blocks, Gaps, Columns and Blogger shortcode. On the below screenshots you can see which backend section corresponds to a frontend section.

Here is how it looks on the frontend:



And here is how it looks in the VC's backend editor:

Main Slider

Now, let's set up the main theme's slider.

Built-in Theme Slider

Built-in theme slider allows you to display Featured images from the posts of this category. You can select a category and specify the number of the posts displayed. This is a rather simple solution that can be optionally used, though we prefer using revolution slider.

 

Here's how your slider might look like.

Revolution Slider

The theme is fully compatible with an extremely powerful and beautiful plugin - Revolution Slider.

After installation in the admin panel's menu an item Revolution Slider will show up, using which you can create an unlimited number of sliders, and then set any of them as the main slider in the menu Theme Options -> Global Options - Slider. To do this, set Revolution slider in the field Slider Engine, and specify the name of the slider in the Revolution Slider alias field.

We highly recommend checking the following links:

Blog

Now that you have finished working on the appearance of the homepage of your website, it is time to start a blog.

Please note that blog is a very handy tool for company news and events page, so it's not just for bloggers. Besides that we use blog functionality to create awesome galleries for your portfolio. To use the blog's functionality in our theme you need to create the blog stream page. To do this you need to:

  • Go to Pages under the WordPress menu and then click Add New.
  • Put your Title as usual ("Blog streampage" for example)
  • Choose "Blog streampage" as the page's template

  • Publish this page.

IMPORTANT: It was an optional step. Even if you do not create a separate page for your blog stream page, you will still use the correct template to display a list of posts. However, creating a separate page will give you an extra advantage - you can set up individual features for blog stream page (position and type of sidebars, color scheme for each element on the page etc.)

Now, assign the newly created page as "Posts page" (blog streampage). To do this:

  1. Select the menu item Settings - Readings


  2. In the field Front page displays select "A static page (select below)" , and in the list "Posts page:"choose the page you have created. .

Blog Items

Now you can create blog posts.

  • Go to Posts under the WordPress menu and then click Add New.
  • Put your Title as usual.
  • Put Content if needed.
  • Select one or more categories to the Categories.

  • Select desired Post Format.

    1. Standard - just set the featured image or without featured image.
    2. Gallery - add a gallery in the post with standard means of WordPress (with Add Media button located above the editor). In the theme settings you can specify whether you want to replace the original gallery with the built-in theme slider.
    3. Video - Add the YouTube or Vimeo video in the post with the shortcode[video]
    4. Audio - Add the Audio in the post with the shortcode[audio]
    5. Quote - Add text of the quotes (IMPORTANT: select it and mark as "Blockquote"), and after it - a link to the original source.
    6. Link - Add a link to the body of the post.
    7. Image - Add an image to the body of the post.
    8. Status - Add a one-row message to the body of the post.
    9. Aside - Add a short message to the body of the post.
    10. Chat - Normally it contains a block of messages - correspondence of two or more people. For pretty formatting you can use the shortcode [trx_chat].
  • For every post item it is necessary to upload an image and to set it as featured. Click Set featured image on the right in the Featured Image section:

  • Click Select Files button and select image to upload (the full size image). WordPress will crop the image, depending on which portfolio template you will use.
  • After image was uploaded you need to set this image as featured. Click Use as featured image.



  • IMPORTANT: In the Post Options section you can flexibly customize the appearance and behaviour of each of the post: select or hide the slider above the post, select and set sidebars and their position (or hide the unnecessary ones), set up the display of different parts of the page and the post (information about the author, related posts , a comment block and many more). There are default settings for each post that are specified in the category to which the post belongs. If the settings are not specified in the category, then they are inherited from the overlying category. If there is no settings specified in any of the parental categories, the settings indicated in Theme Options -> Global Options - Blog will be used.

  • Publish this post.

Portfolio

This section describes how to create portfolio page and add new items.

Our theme provides easy and powerful tools helping to create eye catching galleries. Portfolio items are just usual posts with improved look and feel features and work exactly as blog posts.

To get started you should create posts category that will contain your portfolio entries and sub-categories.

  1. Navigate to Posts ->Categories ->Add New, name the category and add some description.
  2. Go to the bottom of the page and click on Blog and Single tab
  3. Unlock Blog style options
  4. Select one of the layouts that suits your needs. Later you can play around with the layouts and hover effects to achieve desired look and feel.




Now we have just created a category that will contain our portfilio items and display them proper way. If you add some sub-categories to this main category, they will inherit parent style unless you choose to override them at category options page. Lets add some portfolio items!

  1. Go to Posts -> Add New, name the post accordingly
  2. In the right column find Categories widget and select "Portfolio" category - thus we move usual post entry into portfolio section.
  3. Set featured image and save the post. Please note that this featured image will be used as a primary portfolio image so make sure it has a good quality.




To add portfolio page to main menu navigate to Appearance -> Menus, select newly created category and add it to main(or any other) menu, save the menu and you are done!





Team

Team is a custom post type used to create team member elements and used for announcements. Every RoseMaryal course has a teacher . The list of teachers is available in Team section.
So before adding new course you should add teachers 1st in team section. When creating a course, you will have a list of available staff members to assign with the course
Additionally, you can use team members and teams in trx_team shortcode or add new members manually. To read more about trx_team shortcode please follow this link

As you can see above each new team member has extra parameters which are custom link to member profile(can be external URL), social profiles, position etc.

Landing Pages

Landing pages are extremely popular now since they are extremely powerful marketing solutions with high conversion rate. Our themes provide powerful tools helping to create awesome landing pages in a blink of an eye.

To create a landing page follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to Pages -> Add New, give this page a name like "My Landing"
  2. Enable side "Table of content" menu: Customization -> Menus -> Show TOC ->Fixed

    Now we are ready to add menu items.
  3. Lets add some content to the page. In order to obtain a menu item in page navigation menu each content block must be separeted with anchor shortcode. Each anchor shortcodes adds new navigation item to Table of Content Menu(see below) and this way organizes page navigation. See example below:
    [trx_anchor id="toc_projects" title="Our projects" description="Our projects - |show your works with amazing hovers" icon="icon-briefcase"]
    
    This shortcode creates a menu item named "Our projects", adds a description(displayed when mouse is over) and adds menu item icon. When you click "Our projects" menu item, the page will scroll to the place where this shortcode was inserted. This is a simple and effective way to create navigation menu on landing pages.
  4. Go to theme options and disable top menu: Customization -> Menus -> Show Top Panel -> Hide
  5. This is how you can create awesome landing page or single page website in a few clicks. Once again, the core tool to create page navigation and add page anchors is [trx_anchor] shortcode. The theme scans page content, finds trx_anchor shortcodes and builds menu. To get more information regarding this shortcode please follow this link

Reviews

We have a special rating system that can be easily integrated into any post or category. See how it works:

  1. In Theme Options -> Global Options - Reviews add the required number of evaluation criteria. These criteria will be available when editing any post in any category. If your website publishes reviews in only one direction (for example, "Movies"), then you may leave it like this.
  2. Of course, we understand that to rate different areas (music, movies, technology, etc.) you need a completely different rating criteria. Therefore, you can override the list of criteria in each category. To do this, open Posts - Categories, select a category you want to modify, click Edit and at the bottom of the page find "Custom settings for this category" in the tab Reviews add new criteria for evaluation.

    IMPORTANT: The criteria established for a category is valid for all the posts in this category and sub-categories in it.
  3. Now, in any post you can assess the subject of the article in the section Post Options in the tab Reviews:



As a result you will see similar reviews panel on post pages

IMPORTANT: If you change the list of categories for the current post, first press "Update" ("Publish" if you save it for the first time) and then proceed with the installation of Review parameters . If your newly selected category is assigned a separate list of Review criteria, it will appear on the tab "Reviews" only after you save (update) the post!

IMPORTANT: In Theme Options -> Global Options - Reviews you can choose the rating system for your posts: 5 stars, 10 stars or 100%. You can easily switch from one rating system to another at any moment!

Filter pages

Another great feature of the theme is built in post filters helping to sort posts according to their type of content in a simple and intuitive way. Among other posts you can select pages only containing reviews, Video only, Gallery Only, Audio Only

Lets see an example how to create a page that contains only posts with reviews. To do that we will have to use "Reviews filter" . For pages Videos filter, Audios filter or Galleries filter (if needed) configuration should be done the same way.

Only Reviews

Let's set up an "Reviews filter" page. To do this, you need to:

  • Go to Pages under the WordPress menu and then click Add New.
  • Add page Title as usual ("Only Reviews" for example)
  • Choose "Only Reviews" as the page's template
  • Publish this page.


Now you can add this page to the menu, and users of your website will be able to pick from the entire number of posts only those containing Reviews; as for you, you will be able to set individual style of the page display.

Other filters

Video filter page, as well as gallery, announcements, team members and others are similar to "Only Reviews"(see above). You can use the same procedure to create other filter pages.

Custom pages

Now we can prepare the other pages of our blog. This is not required, but if you want to change the display settings on Page 404, Archive pages or Search results, you have to create separate pages and customize them.

Consider the example of the Page 404. For pages Archive pages or Search results (if needed) configuration should be done the same way.

Page 404

Let's set up an error 404 page. To do this, you need to:

  • Go to Pages under the WordPress menu and then click on Add New.
  • Put your Title as usual ("Page 404" for example)
  • Choose "Page 404" as the page's template



  • In "Page Options" area we set up the display of this page:
    • We are hiding the header area of ​​the page - Customization -> Header & Footer in the field "Show Top of page section" choose "No"
    • We are hiding the additional info of ​​the page - Blog and Single -> Single Page in the field "Show post info" choose "No"
    • We are hiding the right sidebar - Customization -> Sidebars in the field "Show main sidebar" select "Hide (without sidebar)"
    • We are removing details of (author, related posts, comments) - Blog and Single -> Single Page select "No" in corresponding fields
  • Publish this page.

As a result, when you try to open a non existing page on your site, you will see page containing this message:



NOTICE! You can not preview 404 page using WordPress View page or Preview changes button. You should type incorrect site URL to see 404 page.

To customize this page you should edit page template file in any text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. Open the root folder of your theme and find /templates folder. This folder contains post-layout-404.php file. You can open it in any text editor and change HTML code according to your needs.

Archives

Archives Page Setup is similar to "Page 404"(see above)

Theme Options

Now, let's talk about the theme's settings: Theme Options -> Global Options. Here you will get the full control over display and functionality of the web-site.

Some groups of the settings have been described above, in the sections dedicated to the Home Page and Blog.

Here we will consider the rest of the settings.

IMPORTANT:

Please be aware that our theme has a unique inheritance hierarchy. It means that settings of each particular post\page\category can override global theme settings.​
The settings of Theme Options -> Global Options section affect behavior of the entire website, all of it. In other words, if you want all of your posts, pages and categories to look exactly the same, all you need to do is go through those Global options:



There's no need to dive in the rest of the options. See the screenshot below:



But if you decide to give it a shot, then you will be having almost endless capabilities for customization. You can apply a different set of settings to each sub-group of the theme's options. Their settings will override the global options settings.

There's one more important thing we'd like to mention. In the Theme Options you can find Fonts & Colors section.



Here you can create your own color schemes. It is based on the LESS framework. More information about it can be found here. Please be aware that creating color schemes requires a lot of server resources and at least 128MB of RAM. So we recommend to consider a decent hosting plan.

Anyway you can always stick with the predefined color schemes we have already created.

Custom widgets:

  3. ThemeRex - Subcategories List: Used to show subcategories list (children of selected category)
  4. ThemeRex - Flickr photos: Shows photos from Flickr account.
  5. Instagram photos: Shows photos from Instagram account. IMPORTANT! You need install plugin "wp-instagram-widget.zip" before use this widget.
  6. ThemeRex - Most Popular & Commented: Displays the most visited and most commented articles.
  7. ThemeRex - QRCode generator: Displays VCard 3.0 with your personal data (address, phone, email, etc.) as QR Code. Also you can display as QR Code any text (or link).

  12. ThemeRex - Twitter: This widget shows the last Tweets from your Twitter-feed using the API 1.1 (entered into force in June 2013)
    For its work, this version of the widget requires creating "Twitter Application" and obtaining the appropriate codes. Due to the fact that Twitter from June 2013 switched to the new API 1.1 and discontinued support of out-of-date API 1.0, now to get information out of this social network, you must create an account on the resource https://dev.twitter.com/apps. Then, click the "Create a new application", fill in the required fields and generate "Access token" and "Access token secret". As a result, you will get four important core values to work with Twitter API 1.1:
    • Consumer key
    • Consumer secret
    • Access token
    • Access token secret
    You will need these fields to configure the widget "Themerex - Twitter" in Appearance - Widgets

Contact form: This widget is not supplied, but you can easily create it using the widget "Text": just add widget "Text" in the right sidebar and paste the shortcode [trx_contact_form] into this widget. That's all!

Shortcodes

Shortcodes are a cool feature in WordPress that essentially allows you to do some pretty incredible things by just inserting a shortcode into a page or post. Using Shortcodes is a breeze, just insert one where you want the relevant content to show up.

The theme comes with a number of shortcodes allowing you to add the info in a simple way.

IMPORTANT: Please make sure to always start new shortcodes from new lines. Most of the time you won't encounter any errors, if you don't do that, but unfortunately WordPress does mess up the html sometimes. This is true for all shortcodes, but the inline ones like trx_highlight, are the only ones that don't need a new paragraph.

Please note that almost all the shortcodes allow parameters:

  • id - unique id for element. Allow to address this element form javascript or CSS
  • class - class name for element. Allow set up additional decorations for element in CSS stylesheets.
    IMPORTANT: You can use next common classes to decorate any shortcode:
    • theme_accent - main (accent) theme color used for decorate inner text of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_bg - main (accent) theme color used as background (instead bg image) of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_bgc - main (accent) theme color used as background color of the shortcode
    • theme_accent_border - main (accent) theme color used as border color of the shortcode (if border present)
    • theme_accent2 - accent2 theme color used for decorate inner text of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_bg - accent2 theme color used as background (instead bg image) of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_bgc - accent2 theme color used as background color of the shortcode
    • theme_accent2_border - accent2 theme color used as border color of the shortcode (if border present)
    • texture_bg_1 ... texture_bg_10 - set texture image for the shortcode's background
    • bg_pattern_0 ... bg_pattern_9 - set pattern image for the shortcode's background (repeat, fill background)
    • bg_image_1 ... bg_image_6 - set image for the shortcode's background (no repeat, fit to background)
    You can combine classes above. For example, we need section with theme color for background and texture 1:
    [trx_section class="theme_accent_bgc texture_1"]Section inner text[/trx_section]
  • top, bottom, left, right the value of which is the number - the margin in pixels from the top, bottom, left and right of the block respectively.

Also, note that "on | off" and "yes | no" in values of the parameters are interchangeable! That is, if the shortcode's description indicates that the value of a parameter can be "on" or "off", it means that along with them you can use the "yes" or "no".

Here's a list of the shortcodes included into the theme.

trx_accordion

Creates blocks of the "accordion" type. Only one of the blocks can be open at a time.

Emailer - mass e-mail distribution and collection of subscription lists

Our themes come with another great tool helping you keep in touch with your customers and site visitors. It's a small addon helping collect emails and send newsletters. If you are running small project it's a great alternative to professional email services like MailChimp or Sendgrid.

WARNING: Before using mass email tool please check if your web hosting provider allows to send mass email. Most of shared web servers strictly prohibit sending mass emails and can block your account.

WARNING: If you have more than 1000 subscribers, we highly recommend using professional mass email services to ensure high deliverability, high open/click rate. Always make sure you are using double opt-in email list, getting too many abuse reports may affect your site SEO. Remember, SPAM is no-no!

ADVICE: To keep your list healthy and up to date we recommend using Email validation service, this is a great tool to filter junk emails if you purchased emails list elsewhere !

Emailer Features:

  • Emailer will help you automatically create and update mailing lists.
  • You can easily create a mailing list for an arbitrary list of clients, or you can use one of the lists as the basis, completing it with arbitrary set of addresses from a text file.
  • Sent letters can be decorated using a standard WordPress editor.
  • It's possible to add an attachment-file (a document or an archive) to the e-mail.

To enable "Emailer" go to Appearance -> Theme Options and select "Yes" in the field "Enable Emailer in admin panel". You will get a new menu item "Appearance" - "Emailer".

How it works

Distribution lists - shortcode [trx_emailer]

If you want your site visitors to be able to subscribe to any kind of newsletters, simply create a page (post) newsletter description, and add a shortcode [trx_emailer group = "mail_delivery_name"] to it, where mail_delivery_name is a name of the list of subscribers. That's it!

As a result, a subscribtion form will appear on the page you've created above:



where your visitors can leave their e-mail address (with option dbl-in checking):



and after confirmation their email appear in the subscribers list:



Using menu Appearance - Emailer you will do a distribution for this list:

Emailer consists of 2 basic panels:

  • on the left hand - email composer that includes visual text editor, attachment form and subject line.
    NOTICE! We do recommend reading general newsletter guide lines before sending emails, this helps to improve deliverability and not look spammy.
  • on the right - field to select one of the previously created mailing groups. If you want to create a newsletter for an arbitrary list of addresses, in this field you don't have to choose anything, but simply insert the e-mail address list into the next field - "List of recipients". Each address in this field ("List of recipients") must begin from a new line or you must put signs ";" or "" between the addresses.
    If you chose a group form the list, the field List of recipients will display the list of e-mail addresses from that group. IMPORTANT: In this list, you will see only confirmed addresses! Under the list of recipients, you can specify name and e-mail address of the newsletter sender . If these fields are not filled out, the data are collected from WordPress settings: menu Settings - General.
    To the right from the field of group selection, there is a set of switchers that allow to manage current group:
    • Update - update the list of e-mail addresses when sending an e-mail (if you edited it in the field below)
    • Clear - delete unconfirmed addresses from the list of e-mail addresses when sending an e-mail
    • Deleter - delete the entire group after sending an e-mail

NOTICE! A good practice of email marketing is adding extra paragraph to your privacy policy page covering terms of emails usage.

May the work with your mailings be pleasant, and most importantly, profitable!

PO Composer and MO Generator

Translating WordPress theme may be a serious issue. To be more specific, the localization itself does not cause any problems, but further theme updates may bring some troubles: we get a new .po-file with updated structure. The changes may affect different parts of the file, which requires another translation!

For instance, you bought the theme that includes only the English version. Normally, these are the files "en-EN" or "en-GB" located in the sub-folder "languages of the theme folder. You need translation into your native language, e.g. German. You have copied the files "en-GB.po"and "en-GB.mo" inside the folder 'language' and have named them "de-DE.po"and "de-DE.mo" respectively.

Then you have launched an application for editing .po-files (e.g., POEdit) and translated all strings into German. Congrats! You've done such a huge job!

However, after a while you find out that another update of your theme has been released! You download it and... here comes the most interesting part :( The translation file has changed! Now It has new lines, and some of the old ones changed significantly. How to find out what exactly was changed? Obviously, you don't want to translate it all over again...

Or you simply want to create translation file for your language, but you don't have a .po-file editor. Sure, you can edit a .po-file using a regular text editor. But how to get a corresponding .mo-file?

For many customers these problems become one of the reasons why they prefer not to update their themes. Of course, another good reason is the fact that users have already made a lot of changes to the theme (logo, style tables etc).

By the way, to make an update of WordPress themes easier, it is not recommended to make changes into the theme files, it is preferable to create a child theme based on your theme, and make all changes there. In that case, after updating of the parent theme you at least won't lose the changes you've made.
You can read more about child theme in previous chapter or at official WordPress website.

What we offer:

  • "PO Composer" will help you solve one of the problems related to theme update: it will help you easily find new and not changed strings for translation. Basically, it will simply prepare an updated translation file for you, where all the strings you have translated before will be added. If you like, you'll be able to move all translated strings to the end of the file. And to do (to be more precise, to complete) translation will be as easy as 1-2-3.
  • Using the "PO Composer" you will also be able to edit any .po-files (both already existing on your server and the ones being uploaded), and then generate corresponding .mo-fiels for them.
  • If the theme is allowed a record to the folder "languages", it will be able to update the .po-file in the folder with the current theme independently!

To enable "PO Composer" navigate to "Appearance -> Theme Options" and select "Yes" in the field "Enable po-composer in admin panel" . You will get a new menu item "Appearance" - "PO Composer".

How PO Composer works

Now you opened the "PO Composer" page in the menu "Appearance - PO Composer". What's next?

PO Composer page

PO composer consists of two major panels. On the left hand you choose a .po file to edit(the file may be located in the parent or child theme , this may be any downloadable file or even the content of your Clipboard); on the right - fields to select. Po-file to be merged with the one selected on the left (if needed). If you do not want to merge files, but only edit one of them, simply do not select anything in the right section.

Let's take a look at options available:

  1. Upload .po-file - This option allows to select any .po-file from your computer and upload it for editing.
  2. Edit .po-text - This option allows text of any .po-file into the text field and edit it.
  3. Parent languages/parent_xxx - This option allows to select one of the .po-files in the folder"languages" of the parent theme on your server.
  4. Child languages/child_xxx - This option allows to select one of the .po-files in the folder "languages" of the child theme on your server (this option is available only if the child theme is active at the moment)

If you tick "Move translated strings down" - in the .po-files all translated strings will be moved at the end of the file.

Variants of use:

  1. If you want to edit one of the language files in the folder with parent or child theme:
    In the left block of settings, select an option "parent_xxx" or "child_xxx", where "xxx" is the name of the translation file you want to edit, and then click the button "Load" under the left block.

    Edit language file

    The text of the selected file will appear in the field for editing:

    Edit language file

    You can make changes directly to this file.
    Attention! Editing this file requires high level of expertise. You should know exactly what you are doing and understand that removing any special character will break file structure. Therefore, we recommend using simplified and user friendly editor.
    To stay on the safe side switch to the tab "Strings editor"and you will see the list of strings for translation. Below the list there is a text field for editing current string. You simply scroll through the list and edit string by string. Strings that have been translated appear in the list in a different color. See example below:

    Edit strings list
    When you are through with the editing, simply switch back to the tab "Plain text" and click "Update" to generate .mo-file and update the file on the server (please make sure the file and file containing folder have write permissions).

    Update after editing

    After files update you will get download links allowing to download newly generated .PO and .MO files. Please make sure you have set write permissions to 'language' folder and it's sub-folders. In this case all files in sub-folders will be updates automatically . Otherwise you will have to update translation files manually. To find out more about file permissions on your server please contact your web hosting service company.

    Update after editing

  2. Editing the random .po-file:
    In the left block of settings, select the option Upload .po-file and click the button "Upload" below the left block.

    Upload file

    The text of the selected file will appear in the edit box:
    Edit language file

    All further steps are completely similar to those we have described in the previous example.
  3. Editing text from the Clipboard:
    In the left block of settings, select the option Edit .po-text and into the text field insert the text from the Clipboard:

    Edit plain text

    All further steps are completely similar to those we have described in the previous examples (see above).
  4. Merging different versions of translation file:
    For example, you are using the child-theme. You have updated the parent theme, and the folder with the child-theme in the sub-folder "languages" contains old language files. You want to update the language file in the child-theme by adding the new and changed strings of the updated theme and keeping all your previously translated strings. On the left, you need to select "parent_xxx", and on the right - "child_xxx" (where "xxx" is the language code) and click the button "Merge":

    Merge files

    The text of the merged file will appear in the edit box:
    Edit merged file

    All further steps are completely similar to those we have described in the previous examples (see above).

Forget the agony with the translation update ;)!
