Opal WordPress Team
To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. Make sure your installed Wordpress version is 3.8 or higher. You also need to have PHP 5.2.4 or higher versions (recommended is php 5.3+) and MySQL 5.0 in order for OpalTheme to function correctly. If you need help installing WordPress, follow the instructions in WordPress Codex or you can watch the Instructional Video created by Woo Themes.
Purchase Shopping template from Themeforst then you can download our template package on there.
Extract package that include all files and folders of theme.
Installing a WordPress theme is super easy, you’ll see our video guide:
- Navigate to Appearance → Themes in your WordPress admin dashboard.
- Click the Add New button at the top of the page and go for the Upload option.
- For the file upload, pick Theme Files/shopping.zip in the theme package downloaded from ThemeForest and click Install Now.
Many users are on shared hosting with low upload limits, and in such situations the Striking theme is often too large to install through Wordpress. We suggest you should upload it via FTP.
If you don't know how to use FTP visit this link for information: http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients . You will need to first uncompress the PACKAGE-theme.zip file you have found in the master zip downloaded from Themeforest. This zip uncompresses into a normal folder. This unzipped folder is all you need to transfer via ftp and if you open it, you will see all sorts of folders and css and php files which together contain all the theme coding.
Using the FTP program transfer this folder which contains the above files to the Wordpress installation theme root directory: /wp-content/themes.
Do not upload any of the other files or folders such as licensing or resource or documentation. Uploading any of the other folders may cause problems resulting in the theme not working properly. Learn from Wordpress Official Documentation about installing theme with FTP client or with cPanel: http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes
After completing the upload, activate the theme as per activating any other theme.
Goto your Dashboard >> Appearance >> Themes >> Activate Shopping template
Follow that images:
However that doesn’t necessarily mean that the theme was actually broken or the so important part is missing. It would rather mean that the theme was just uploaded to the server incorrectly and missing stylesheets are not missing but got to the wrong folder when downloading and unzipping.
Here are some tips how to fix that:
Summing up, the destination /wp-content/themes/themename/themename/style.css is incorrect and is the reason of “ Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” error message.
It must look like /wp-content/themes/themename/style.css
You may check your file upload limit on Your Media Uploader page in WordPress. Depending upon the web hosting company and the conditions of the service they provide it may vary. The most common is about 8 MB which is more or less enough. But uploading some media files like audio and video may become a problem with for example 2 MB upload limit.
We decided to share some tips about how to extend your maximum file upload size in WordPress:
1. Through functions.php file:
You may add the below mentioned code in the functions.php file of your theme
2. Through PHP.INI file:
If you cannot see the php.ini file in your directory create the new one with below mentioned code and upload it to your root folder on your web server.
If you can see the php.ini file then change parameters or add :
3. Through .htaccess method
You may try modifying the existing .htaccess file in the root directory or creating a new one.
Add the following code in the existing or new htacess file:
You can reset all of the setting for the each page on our custom panel by clicking “Reset” button on the bottom.
