Quick Setup

  1. Install & Activate the Theme

    In the WordPress dashboard, upload the theme zip file from Appearance > Themes

  2. Install & Activate Recommended Plugins

    After the theme is activated, a notice will appear to install the recommended plugin, Jetpack. Install and activate that plugin by selecting 'Begin installing plugins'.

    Be sure that you both "Install" and "Activate" the plugins in order to make them functional.

  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.

    Demo content will be available on the Rescue Themes site.

    There are two demo content files: an .xml file for posts and pages and a .wie file for widgets.

    Plugin Notice
    Importing the .xml File

    Navigate to Tools > Import and select WordPress. Install the WordPress Importer plugin. Activate and run the importer.

    Next upload the demo content XML file with the WordPress importer.

    Check the 'Download and import file attachments' option after clicking 'Upload file and import'. This will import demo images.
    Importing widgets with the .wie file

    Install and active the Widget Importer & Exporter plugin

    Navigate to Tools > Widget Importer & Exporter

    Choose the .wie file and import.

  4. Assign Home and Blog Pages

  5. From the Reading Settings of your WordPress site, assign the Home page as the 'Front page' and the Blog page as the 'Posts page'.

  6. Assign Menus

  7. With your demo content imported, you can now assign the demo navigation menu at Apperance > Menus:

  8. Theme Options

    All theme options can be adjusted live in the WordPress customizer located at:

    Appearance > Customizer

  9. Not Importing the Demo XML File?
  10. If you aren't importing the demo data included with the theme, then at a minimum you'll want to create a "Home" and "Blog" page.

    • Home
    • Create a page called "Home" and assign the Home Template to it.

    • Blog Page
    • Create a page called "Blog". No special template needs to be assigned to this page

    • Assign Home and Blog Pages

    • From the Reading Settings of your WordPress site, assign the Home page as the 'Front page' and the Blog page as the 'Posts page'.



This theme includes multiple widetized areas.

Widgets can be added to these areas by navigating to "Appearance > Widgets"

Widget Areas


This theme support several Jetpack features including:

  1. Carousel
  2. Contact Form
  3. Infinite Scroll
  4. Related Posts
  5. Sharing
  6. Shortcode Embeds
  7. Site Icon
  8. Tiled Galleries
  9. Widget Visibility

Features shown on the demo will activate once theses Jetpack features are on.

Widget Visibility

Control which pages your widgets appear on with Jetpack's Widget Visibility feature.

Activate widget visibility at: Jetpack > Settings > Activate Widget Visibility

To control visibility, expand the widget and click the Visibility button next to the Save button, and then, choose a set of visibility options.

For example, if you wanted the Top Products widget to only appear on the home page, choose "Show" from the first dropdown and then add the rule: "Page is Home".

Widget visibility

You can also hide widgets based on the current page. For example, if you don't want the Recent Posts widget to appear on shop pages, choose "Hide" and add each shop page.
