Introduction

Back To Top

Thank you!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your purchase. This instruction manual was created to help walk you through the setup process of the theme. Before we get started, let’s go over a few things.

Should you have any questions or concerns please remember that customization to the theme does not fall under free support and is your responsibility. If you wish to customize this theme, we recommend that you use the child theme starter package (included) to prevent you from missing out on any updates to this theme in the future.

If you have any questions, please visit the support center and open a ticket.

Getting Started

Back To Top

Your theme has been developed using the latest version of WordPress (which at the time of this publication is 4.3). If you do not have the latest version of WordPress, we recommend you upgrade your site to ensure you experience the theme’s full capabilities. To get the latest version, please click this link, or if you already have a WordPress site, you can check for updates and install updates by logging into your WordPress site then go to Dashboard > Updates and follow the on screen instructions.

If you would like to get your site setup to look exactly like our demo, you will need to follow these steps in order, for the purpose of this documentation we will assume you have already set up your WordPress hosting, domain and site:

  • Install and activate the theme
  • Install and activate the recommended plugins
  • Set the WordPress settings for media and permalinks
  • Import the demo content (file included) and the widget settings (file also included)
  • Review the theme and plugin settings and set to your desired needs

We will be going through each step in detail to help walk you through the process.

You, of course, do not have to import the XML. If you want to skip this step, please feel free, but keep scrolling so we can explain the theme options, widgets, page templates and other WordPress important information about this theme.

Installing the theme

Back To Top

Unzip your download. Inside the folder you will see a number of other files such as: kingdom-church, kingdom-church.zip, kingdom-church-child, kingdom-church-child.zip, Help File, demo_widgets_import_file.wie, rev_slider_content.zip, revslider.zip and demo_content_import_file.xml

To do this:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Media. We have the ‘Thumbnail size’ set to 250 width and 250 height and the ‘Crop thumbnail to exact dimensions’ box ticked, but this is totally up to you and what works for your site. Just keep in mind, when you do the XML import later, your image sizes may not look exactly like what we have on the live preview. Should you want to go back and change your thumbnail sizes to something different at a later time, it is totally doable, but once you do the import and/or start uploading images, WordPress will create them at this size and if you change this size, you would need the assistance of a plugin to resize the image to the newer sizes. You can get a plugin like Regenerate Thumbnails to help you do this.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Permalinks. We have the permalinks set to ‘Month and name’, but this step would be what ever makes sense to you and your business to help boost your SEO. Just remember, if you leave the permalinks to ‘Default’ your url structures will look something like this: http://mythemepreviews.com/kingdom/?p=123, which will not help your SEO. Here is the official Wikipedia definition of SEO.
  3. Navigate to Appearance > Widgets. You will need to ‘remove’ or ‘delete’ each widget that WordPress installed for you on activation (under ‘Primary Sidebar’). We will be explaining to you later in this document where each widget goes.
  4. Navigate to Pages. You can delete the ‘Sample Page’ that WordPress created for you on activation and then click ‘Trash’ to empty this page from your trash. The XML will be creating pages for you with content and images included.
  5. Navigate to Posts. You can delete the ‘Hello World’ post that WordPress created for you on activation and then click ‘Trash’ to empty this post from your trash. The XML will be creating posts for you with content and images included.
  6. Navigate to Appearance > Themes. Click ‘Add New’. Click ‘Upload Theme’. Click ‘Browse’, just browse your computer and select the kingdom-wp.zip, then select ‘Install Now’. Once the theme is uploaded, click ‘Activate’.

Your theme is now installed and activated. If you wish to customize the theme, you would simply repeat step 6, but select the kingdom-wp-child.zip to upload, install and activate. If you wish to learn more about child themes, follow this link. Next up, we’re going to install some plugins.

Installing the plugins

Back To Top

With this theme we use several plugins. You, of course, do not have to use all of these plugins, or even these specific plugins. But please remember, the plugins we are recommending are on our live demo and have already been tested and styled for.

Please note that plugins are created by many users, many for free, from all corners of the world, not all plugins play nicely together and it will be up to you to make sure the plugins you have activated are compatible with each other – this is not a limitation of the theme in any way — it’s just if the plugin author created the code cleanly and using WordPress guidelines.

We list these plugins so that they link to their official download page.

We show 2 different styles for the contact forms you see, Contact Form 7, which is a free plugin as well as Gravity Forms which is not a free plugin, but you are free to use either as they both have been styled for specifically in this theme.

  • Revolution Slider — used to power slider you see on the homepage. That doesn’t mean that you have to use this slider, as the slider area on the homepage is a widget area and you can place whatever you’d like there or use any slider you want. If you are going to use this plugin, you will need to ‘import’ the .zip included in the package called rev_slider_content.zip to bring an example. Just go to Revolution Slider and click the ‘import’ then select the file rev_slider_content.zip to import the slider. This theme includes the plugin for you but this does not include plugin updates or support as you would need to buy your own license to get updates and support. Should you want your own license, please follow this link. To use the plugin we include, just go to Plugins > Add New > Upload and upload the revslider.zip included in your package. We will update to the latest version of Revolution Slider periodically. Here are instructions on how to update the plugin if you don’t buy your own license.
  • Contact Form 7 — used to power the contact form. Once you activate this plugin, it will create a dummy form for you. You can Navigate to Contact and simply delete this form if you like, if you do an XML import the import will create a form for you. This is a free plugin.
  • Gravity Forms — used for forms. You will need to create your form(s), but if you did the XML import a form will be created for you. This is a premium plugin.
  • Church Theme Content — used to power sermons, events and speakers. This plugin is free.
  • Custom Recurring Events — adds additional options for the above events part of the plugin to allow for further custom recurring such as ‘every third Tuesday’. This plugin is not free, you can buy the plugin for $29 if you are looking to break down your recurring events more than what is provided by the default plugin functionality.
  • Cr3ativ Shortcodes — used to power all the short codes seen throughout the site.
  • Responsive Lightbox by dFactory — used to power the lightbox effect shown on galleries.
  • Widget Importer & Exporter — used to quickly and easily import all widgets used in our demo. Once installed and activated just click the Tools > Widget Importer & Exporter and select ‘import’ then select the file in the package called demo_widgets_import_file.wie. Please remember the theme must be installed and activated first. You will need to change the url’s to the images in any of the widget areas so that it points to your site instead of our live demo.

If you want your site to look exactly like our live demo, you must install and activate each one of these plugins listed or you will receive error messages when you try to import the XML as it will be trying to import content for a post type that does not exist.

Ok, now that our theme and plugins are installed and activated, let’s go ahead and import that XML demo content.

Importing the XML

Back To Top

Inside your download you will see a file called ‘demo_content_import_file.xml’. To import this you MUST follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to Tools > Import. From the list, you will need to click ‘WordPress’. If you have never used this site before, you will need to install and activate this WordPress plugin. Just follow the on screen instructions (‘Install Now’ as well as ‘Activate Plugin & Run Importer’) to get this plugin installed and activated.
  2. Click the ‘Browse’ button and select the ‘demo_content_import_file.xml’, when you have selected the file, click the ‘Upload file and import.
  3. The next screen is going to ask you who you want these posts, pages and images etc assigned to, select the user you created as your ‘Admin’ and then remember to make sure you click the box next to ‘Download and import file attachments’. If you do not tick this box, you will not receive the images.

If you receive any error messages, such as ‘Could not import…..post type does not exist’, this is because you are trying to import content from the XML that requires a plugin and you did not install and/or activate the plugin required. This doesn’t mean your site is broken, it just means that you chose not to install and/or active the recommended plugins from the above step.

If you are using Contact Form 7 – the first thing you need to do is go to Contact. Edit the forms that were imported and make sure you change the email address that you want the forms to point to. You can edit this by logging into WordPress and clicking ‘Contact’ from the left-hand side and selecting each form to update the email address. Don’t forget to save after you have made your changes.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 8.51.21 AM

Now that we have the content, you should start to see things shaping up a bit more like our live preview with the exception of some widget areas, logo(s) etc. But we’re not finished yet — let’s go finish setting up your site.

Finishing the general setup

Back To Top

There are some settings we didn’t cover in the above steps because we needed to import some content before these settings would start making sense. We’ll cover those steps now in list form, you ready? 🙂 (don’t forget to click ‘Save’ for each screen you make changes to)

  1. Navigate to Settings > Responsive Lightbox. Here you can customize how you want your lightbox to look and perform. There are 2 tabs of settings to go through. How you set this plugin up is completely a choice of what looks good to you.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Reading. Here you can set your static ‘Home’ page and your ‘Blog’ page and how many posts WordPress should display before the next page pagination kicks in. Front page displays : either your latest posts (which is default for WordPress, or you can select ‘A static page’ and from the drop down select ‘Home’ for the Front page and ‘Blog’ for the Posts page. And your Blog pages show at most # (for our live demo we have 3 selected here).
  3. If you purchased the Custom Recurring Events Add-on, you should’ve received an email with the download (in .zip format) and the License Key. Save the .zip to your desktop and go to Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin. Then upload the .zip. You will install and activate. Once that step is done you will need to go to Settings > Church Theme Content and enter License Key for the Custom Recurring Events.

The rest of the settings we’re going to go through (menus, widgets and theme options) will have their own dedicated section as shown in the sections below, so that we can provide more in depth details, screen shots and code snippets (when necessary).

We will be going over the page templates and what they are later in the documentation, should you choose to not go with the pages created for you but create your own.

Importing the widgets

Back To Top

There is a handy-dandy plugin out there that can quickly import all widgets as we shown them in the live preview. If you have installed and activated the Widget Importer & Exporter, navigate to Tools > Widget Importer & Exporter. Click the ‘browse’ button and select the ‘demo_widgets_import_file.wie’ file included in your download. Once selected, just click the ‘Import Widgets’ button and everything we have in the live preview will now be populated to your site.

Don’t worry — we will be covering later what each widget area does and where it shows.

Back To Top

We are going to show you how we created the menu(s) for our live preview. You must name your menu “Primary” in order for the mobile menu javascript to kick in.

This theme comes equipped with 2 registered menus. Primary Navigation and Top Right Navigation.

The Primary Navigation is styled for Parent, Child and Grandchild menu items (3 levels).

The Top Right Navigation appears above the Primary and is only styled for 1 level.

Below is an example of the menus.

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 12.10.10 PM

You can add any items to your menu that you would like, you have the freedom to show what displays in each menu. For example, you may want to list the Sermon Speakers separately. That’s cool, no worries. Simply drag/drop each speaker to your menu. But wait, you don’t see your ‘Sermon Speakers’ listed, no worries, that’s a WordPress default setting we can easily change. Navigate to Appearance > Menus. In the top right corner, you can see ‘Screen Options’, just click that and a pull down menu will slide into place.

Here you can select what items you can use with the WordPress drag/drop ‘Add to Menu’ option.

Menus ‹ Welcome to Our Church — WordPress Screen Options

To create the drop down effect for menus, you just need to use the ‘Links’ section loaded on the left. Click ‘Links’, in the URL field, you can either use a # sign, meaning you don’t want the menu item (when clicked) to actually go anywhere, you just want to create the drop down effect. Then you can give the ‘Navigation Label’ what ever text you want the user to see. Below is an example of how we have ours.

Menu-Primary

As you can see from the screen shot, we used the ‘Links’ to create a dummy drop down. We used the # sign for the URL field and the Navigation Label was ‘Schedule’. Then we clicked ‘Add to Menu’. From there, we used the drag/drop capability to add the Session Index Page, Session Category Page and the Session Speaker Page. The dummy page becomes the ‘Parent’ menu item and when we added the pages underneath, we did a slight drag over to the right until it was indented slightly.

This menu would’ve been imported for you if you did the XML import, however, it will need to be ‘assigned’ to the correct location and any custom links we show will still point to our live demo. For example, the ‘Blog Author’ menu item has this link:

http://mythemepreviews.com/kingdom/author/KI_admin@1970/

The above text in italics is obviously our live preview prefix of the url, so you would want to change this to your site. The same goes for the bold text above, this is our live demo author name, you would want to change that to your author name (who you assigned the posts, pages and images to on the import step). Once you make those changes, you will want to remember to click ‘Save Menu’ for each menu.

One final step for the menus and then you can see them in action on your site. Click the ‘Manage Locations’ at the top of the window.
Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 12.16.44 PM

You will need to assign the menus you created (or imported) to it’s correct location. The above screen shot shows you how we have ours set up. Just remember to ‘Save Changes’ when complete.

If you haven’t assigned the Menu Locations, you will receive these messages on your site:

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 12.44.18 PM

If you want to know how we got the styled ‘Donate’ menu button in the Primary menu, just go to Appearance > Menus and review the screen shot below.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 3.17.54 PM As you can see, we added a CSS class of ‘give’ to the menu item to make it stand out. If you don’t see the ‘CSS Class’ – no worries, just go to Screen Options (in the top right corner) and click. Make sure you have the CSS Classes selected and click to close.

Using the theme options

Back To Top
The theme on activation will automatically set the color pickers for you until you are ready to pick your colors, upload your logo and set up your home page settings.

Navigate to Appearance > Customize. Here you can upload your logo, set your copyright etc. By default, we have the theme using default colors and image backgrounds. You will be able to customize these once you navigate to Appearance > Customize.

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 12.58.48 PM

  1. Logo — click the select image under ‘Logo’, here you can upload the logo you choose. If you choose to not upload a logo, the theme will take what ever text you have under Settings > General > Site Title and display the text. Should you want to upload your logo, just click the drop down that says ‘No Image’ and either drag and drop your logo in the area provided or click the ‘Select a file’ and upload. The file will get attached to that particular area, but it will not be saved until you click the ‘Save & Publish’ button at the top of the pane.
  2. Favicon — as with above, just follow the same steps to upload a favicon, should you wish to display one.
  3. Header Image — this image will be displayed on every page in the ‘Title’ area of the page as a cover image. By default, the theme has a fallback image to use if none is set located in the /img directory called default_image.jpg.
  4. Copyright — this is the copyright area and will display what you place in in the footer of all pages.
  5. Footer Image — this image will be displayed on every page in the footer area of the page as a cover image. By default, the theme has a fallback image to use if none is set located in the /img directory called default_image.jpg.
  6. Blog Type – Choose the layout for your blog index page.
  7. Event Title – this title will appear above the event loop on the homepage template.
  8. Event Page URL – enter the URL to the event page, leave blank to disable this feature.
  9. Event Url Text – Event Url text for the homepage template – such as View all upcoming events. If there is no link for the Event Page URL above, then no text will display here.
  10. Blog Title – this title will appear above the blog loop on the homepage template.
  11. Blog Page URL – enter the URL to the blog page, leave blank to disable this feature.
  12. Blog Url Text – Blog Url text for the homepage template – such as View all church news. If there is no link for the Blog Page URL above, then no text will display here.
  13. Sermon Title – this title will appear above the sermon loop on the homepage template.
  14. Sermon Page URL – enter the URL to the sermon page, leave blank to disable this feature.
  15. Sermon Url Text – Sermon Url text for the homepage template – such as View all sermons. If there is no link for the Sermon Page URL above, then no text will display here.
  16. Color 1 — this color picker controls things like background-colors for inputs, border bottom color for primary child menu items, background-color to current top navigation items and background-color for sidebar widgets. We use #f6f6f6 as default.
  17. Color 2 — this color is used for p text, li items that aren’t links and some of the comments styling. We use #6f6f6f as default.
  18. Color 3 — this color is used for headings, input color on focus, blockquotes. We use #2d2d2d as default.
  19. Color 4 — this color will do links, submit buttons as well as theme specific buttons. We use #01b4dd as default.

Once you have all your options created, just remember to click ‘Save & Publish’ to save all your changes.

Now you can see, if you followed all of the steps above, your site will look exactly like the demo.

Next we will be going over what each page template does, where each widget displays and how to use the post formats.

Page templates

Back To Top

This theme has 16 page templates included. Below is a description of each page template.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 3.13.19 PM

Default Template

This is a right sidebar page and uses the widget area of ‘Page’. The content you entered here is the content that will be displayed. If no widgets are entered under the ‘Page’ widget area, then this template becomes fullwidth.

This page dynamically pulls your posts, RSS feed, categories, page etc into a page for you.

Post Formats

Back To Top

This theme supports Standard, Audio, Link, Gallery, Video and Quote post format.

The layout of the page depends on what Blog Type you chose from the theme options (1, 2 or 3 column). You can set a featured image (if you choose), use the read more tag and what ever you place before the read more tag is what will show on your blog index page. For the single blog page it uses the Blog widget area. Whatever widgets you have here will display using a right sidebar page. If no widgets are found, it will display a fullwidth page.

Widgets

Back To Top

Widget areas are simply a place for you to put whatever content you want and you have the option of choosing one of WordPress standard widgets such as ‘Categories’ or ‘Pages’, or even use a text widget to place any text or html that you would like. This theme will allow you to use your shortcodes in the widget areas should you choose the ‘Text Widget’.

If you followed the step earlier in the documentation to import widgets and the Rev Slider plugin was installed and activated at the time, then your widgets are already set up for you. You just need to review theme and tweak them to your liking (or change any links that may be either dummy links or links that point to our live preview).

Next you will see screen shots and code snippets (if needed) to see how we set up our widget areas. First, to get to Widgets, click on ‘Appearance’ and then click ‘Widgets’.

Other notes

Back To Top

Please read all the documentation and follow all steps before asking for support – I can assure you that this documentation should cover all aspects of this theme, it’s use and setup!

We supply support not because we have to, but because it’s the right thing to do. I only have a few rules – here they are:

Be polite

We love supporting our buyers but we are not open to demands, alterations to the theme, customizations etc.

It’s purely help on installing or if you’re not sure quite how to use a function of the theme.

Customization Work

We offer customizations at a price – contact us in the comment area of the item with your project scope and we will offer a price and timeline.

We don’t work for free sorry.

If you don’t have a budget then unfortunately it’s time to either start looking at tutorials, grabbing that handy brother-in-law that is a seasoned developer or borrowing money to get a professional to do your customization work.

We do not offer free advise, do the work for you or assist with ‘can you just show me how…” requests.
I hope you understand that the stock price a WordPress theme doesn’t include a developer at your disposal, but it does get you a rock solid awesome theme.

License

You must have a license number to register the product at the support center – this is available from your downloads page at ThemeForest – look for the item on the page and click the drop down – that’s the license right there 🙂

Open it up and grab the license number and hit up the support center – we’re right here waiting!
Thanks again, and I do hope you enjoy using the theme as much as we did creating it for you!
