1. Install & Activate the Theme #
If you downloaded from https://rescuethemes.com #
In the WordPress dashboard, upload the Politics theme zip file from Appearance > Themes.
If you downloaded from Envato: #
Download the ‘All files & documentation’ folder from your Envato Market download area.
Unzip the ‘All files & documentation’ folder and only upload/activate the Politics theme zip file from within the download package.
2. Install & Activate Recommended Plugins #
After the theme is activated, a notice will appear to install the recommended plugins. Install and activate that plugin by selecting ‘Begin installing plugins’.
Alternately, you can navigate to the plugin list at:
Appearance > Install Plugins
3. Import the Demo Data #
The quickest way to setup your theme to mirror the demo is to import demo content. The demo content is entirely optional though.
There are two demo content files: an
.xml file for posts and pages and a
.wie file for widgets.
.xml File #
Navigate to Tools > Import and select WordPress. Install the WordPress Importer plugin. Activate and run the importer.
Upload the demo content XML file:
Check the ‘Download and import file attachments’ option after clicking ‘Upload file and import’. This will import demo images.
4. Assign the Content #
Once both demo content files are installed, your site will have available all of the pages, posts, menus, and widgets as seen in the demo.
Assign the menus at:
Appearance > Menus
Assign the Home and blog page templates at:
Settings > Reading
Continue customizing your site in the theme options at:
Appearance > Customize
