Initial Set up you Need to do with Most Premium WordPress Themes
With rise in usage of WordPress and with more and more WordPress websites being created it has been noted
that there has been a rise in the purchase of Premium WordPress themes as well. Hence it is essential that one
understands how to install Premium WordPress themes. The steps below will guide you on the basics of most
Premium WordPress themes installation procedure:
Homepage set up: This is the most important of them all. Because most users check the homepage content
and whether it is most easy to set up or the most difficult one is how people think of a theme as easy or
difficult. Because 90% of the Premium WordPress themes get sold to users on behalf of how appealing their
home page content is. Rest inner page contents can be set up using plugins or shortcodes etc. But the
homepage should be attractive after all its your landing page for anyone visiting your website.
Hence it is essential to understand how a homepage is set up in most premium themes. Some developers
have the tendency to scatter a homepage into several widgets, page template, etc. That is difficult to set up
initially but in long run is easy to maintain. Some developers like one of the most popular Premium
WordPress themes users shortcodes. Just copy and paste the shortcode into any page which you have set up
as a static front page and you get the exact homepage. Yes it appears very easy since you get everything in
one go. But managing the homepage in long run is difficult. Some developers have sections within theme
options which actually control the homepage. This is actually an easiest way to manage the homepage
because you get all in one place. Plus homepage designs change with the change of a theme so why not keep
it in theme options and not anywhere else.
Demo installation: There are various ways by which a demo content is installed and developers choose one
or more methods and give choices to their users to have content installed the way they way.
XML: It is the easiest way to install demo content into your website or local server. What they do is
give a XML file from their server so that you can just run it and install the whole demo content. It is
a time taking process because all images from the demo server are downloaded and then stored in
your uploads folder. Although it is time taking but worth the time as it leads to 90% accurate content.
MySQL: Well this is a difficult way because most users don't understand how to use database. If
he/she is a developer then this is probably the most easiest way to install a theme. If not then XML
should be the preferred choice. However with MySQL there are 100% chances of getting all the
content which even XML can't promise.
Dummy: Some developers use dummy content within the Premium WordPress theme options itself
so while loading the theme first time you get all the dummy content and all you have to do is to get
inside theme options and edit that content. This is by far the easiest method as there is no loss of
content, homepage set up becomes very very easy and user need not worry about XML or MySQL.
Shortcodes and gallery installations: Shortcodes are very important when someone is setting up a website
with many pages. To have each page different and content laid out nicely its necessary to use shortcodes like
buttons which allow you to use different set of buttons for read more and different color buttons for more
effective clicks on call to actions. Also separators are necessary to separate content within a paragraph. Also
accordions or tabs can be used to showcase stuff like FAQs or knowledge sharing pages. It is also worth
noting that many Premium WordPress themes provide shortcodes like testimonials rotator, gallery
shortcodes for showcasing portfolio and contact form shortcodes among other useful ones like pricing tables
So more the number of shortcodes the less dependant you are on plugins and more easy it is for you to set up
more and more content using them.
Widgets: Lots of widgets would mean lots of ability to change areas where you need to customize or have
your own stuff removing the default ones. Sidebar widgets are the most common way most Premium
WordPress themes deal with widgets but footer widget and header widgets are also common. Footer widgets
are used for copyright, about, contact info and social info stuff. Whereas header widgets are used for call to
action and address stuff.
