Installation

Please watch full video tutorial. It was recorded for our Autema theme, but can be used for any theme of our development.



Notice: we recommend installing our theme on a clean WordPress to avoid problems.

The theme files can be uploaded in two ways: Through FTP or through WordPress dashboard.
  1. FTP
    Upload the non-zipped theme folder into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server. You must upload folder /ollis/ from archive ollis.zip.
  2. WordPress
    Navigate to "Appearance" > "Add New Themes" -> "Upload Theme" -> "Choose file" (choose ollis.zip) > Install


   



Activate it after install!



Basic configuration

  1. Install all required plugins by clicking on Begin installing plugins
  2. Activate them after that
  3. Update permalinks for custom pages in Settings -> Permalink -> Save

Attention! Unyson, LT-Ext and WPbakery Page Builder plugins are responsible for the performance of the theme. They are required to install!
Notice: if you want to use a child-theme, you can also upload the file ollis-child.zip in addition with the main Ollis Theme. Child Theme allows you to add/modify CSS Stylesheet and functions without modifying main theme files. And you'll not lose your modifications after main theme update.

How to update WPBakery Page Builder

WPBakery goes with theme us bundle plugin and has license, check this article:
https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/213762463-Bundled-Plugins

Demo Content Install

We recommend you to install demo content. Go to the Tools -> Demo Content Install. Be aware - installing of demo content will delete all your current content.
Click Install, wait till it'll be downloaded. Your WordPress Ollis theme now must be identical to live preview. If you have troubles with installation, please check minimal PHP hosting requirements from Theme installation section.




Notice: If Tools -> Demo Content Install not Available - make sure Unyson Plugin is installed and activated. Also Backup & Demo Content Extension must be active:



If demo installation interrupts with warning "Curl SSL" , contact your hosting support and ask them to check, that Curl SSL support is enabled on your site.

If backup or import interrupts with "Abort" link and you have this notice in dashboard “Unyson: Your website is hosted using the LiteSpeed web server. Please consult this article if you have problems backing up.” please read this article http://manual.unyson.io/en/latest/extension/backups/index.html#litespeed-webserver.

3. Troubleshooting guide

Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet error


If you have error "Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet error" - make sure you uploading inner WordPress .zip file with theme, not the whole archive downloaded from ThemeForest. Unzip the archive and download only the attached *.zip file with the theme.

More information on https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821510-Theme-is-missing-the-style-css-stylesheet-error.


LiteSpeed web server

If backup or import interrupts with "Abort" link and you have this notice in dashboard “Unyson: Your website is hosted using the LiteSpeed web server. Please consult this article if you have problems backing up.”


You can use the tips from this article: http://manual.unyson.io/en/latest/extension/backups/index.html#litespeed-webserver.

Or you can use the solution that our developers found. You need to make changes to the file .htaccess and wp-config.php which are located in the WordPress root folder on your FTP server:

1) .htaccess:

RewriteRule .* - [E=noabort:1]


2) wp-config.php:

define('DISABLE_WP_CRON', true);
define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true);

Menu assignment

If after installation you have problems with menu and it displayed without drop down levels like on screenshot:




Make sure that Main Menu is assigned in Appearance -> Menu -> Menu Settings -> Display Location:


Image regeneration

If during the installation of demo content you had this error:

Or after installation you notice that some images are missing, here is a guide to fix this problem:
Install the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/regenerate-thumbnails/

In the Tools menu, the entry "image regeneration" will appear.


Click on the button marked in the screenshot:


At the end of the image regeneration process, thumbnails for all images will be restored.


Requests made through the contact form do not come to the email.

The WordPress Themes doesn’t control WordPress/WooCommerce sendmail function. It is external plugin. You can enable default WordPress theme and check sendmail again.

If you have problem with smtp, it could be mail server configuration error. You can install this plugin and run Connectivity Test, it will check if the SMTP service is available on your hosting:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-smtp/
