  3. DummyContent folder contains Demo Contents such as pages and posts and slider import file.

Getting Started

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. For more information regarding installing the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
Please note that we do not give support or any questions related on how to install and maintain wordpress. For any faulty installation that may cause your website or our theme malfunction you should refer to wordpress support forum. Alternatively you can get help from your web hosting.


Installation:

If you’ve downloaded whole theme package, unzip it. There you will find the theme installation file , user manual, dummy content .xml file, license folder, etc.

Alternatively you can simply download the installable WordPress file.

When you are ready to install a theme, you must first upload the theme files and then activate the theme. For this purpose, unzip the file that you downloaded from themeforest and there you would find theme (extent-wp.zip) file and upload it via wordpress installer. The theme files can be uploaded in two ways

FTP Upload

  1. Unzip the "extent-wp.zip" file
  2. Upload the extracted "extent-wp" theme folder into "/wp-content / themes/" in your wordpress installation
  3. For Activate the theme, Go to Appearance > Themes and activate the installed theme

 

 

WordPress Upload

  1. Navigate to Appearance > Themes
  2. Click Add New button and finnaly hit the Upload Theme
    Install Theme
  3. Click on Choose File and find the "extent-wp.zip" file on your computer and click Install Now button
  4. The theme will be uploaded and installed
  5. For Activate the theme, Go to Appearance > Themes and activate the installed theme

Note: Increasing the WordPress Memory Limit

  • Edit your wp-config.php file and enter something like:
    define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '96M');
    WordPress memory can be different to the server – you need to set this regardless of server memory settings
  • If you have access to your PHP.ini file, change the line in PHP.ini If your line shows 32M try 64M:
    memory_limit = 64M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (64MB)
  • If you don’t have access to PHP.ini try adding this to an .htaccess file:
    php_value memory_limit 64M
  • If none of the above works then talk to your host.
Warning:
Please be informed that you should not upload the whole item you have downloaded from Themeforest as you will get an error of broken stylesheet file. Instead locate the extent-wp.zip file inside the main file you have downloaded.
While installing your theme through wordpress admin, you may encounter an error message saying “are sure you want to do this?” This is mainly due to your hosting php settings. In some hosting the default value for max_upload_limit left default which is 2mb. To solve this problem you should either increase your maximum upload size (to 50mb) on your hosting admin panel or ask your host to do it for you if you do not have the privilege to alter your server php settings. This is a very common request and they should be able to help you out. Once the limit is increased you can re-try the install and you’ll be all good to go.

Note: The best way to learn more about how pages are built in our demo is to install theme in a clean panel (fresh WordPress and latest version of the theme) and import all demos via "Demo Data Install". This will import posts, pages, widgets, menus, theme options and so on.

Visual Page Builder

Extent comes with Visual Page Builder. This software allows you to forget about shortcodes and create most complex layouts within minutes without writing a single line of code!

Our Visual Page Builder is based on widely popular Visual Composer by mixey. It has very simple and intuitive interface, but before getting started with building layouts, you may find it useful to get accustomed with Visual Composer documentation:
 http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Visual_Composer.

In the editor mode you'll have "Add element" button, which you should click or drag to the working canvas, to add content block or row to your page. Clicking the "Add element" button will show the content element selection menu. Content blocks are divided into categories so you can filter. Alternatively you can type the shortcode name to filter down the items instead of search them visually.

To  start creating new layout click “Visual Composer” button on the top right of WYSIWYG (text editor):

WYSIWYG editor change to Visual Composer canvas. You can work with it as you do with regular Visual Composer.

Page Builder buttons :
  1. Add Elements, using this button you can drop all shortcodes avalaible in Extent. You can drag this button and drop to a page section, row or a column.
  2. Add Row. This is a column container. This shortcode does nothing other than holding controlling columns and elements.
  3. Templates : You can save a page using this section and use it in other page. Its handy when you built blocks and columns that you might need them later in other pages.

After clicking “Add element” button, you’ll notice vast set of interface elements (shortcodes) developed exclusively for your theme . Their interface is build on same principles as standard Visual Composer shortcodes. Therefore if you’re already familiar with Visual Composer, working with our shortcodes will be very simple for you!

Elements Blocks :

Below image shows the list of all shortcodes that you can use in Extent. You can use category filter and search element name field to find your shortcode much quickly.

Rows

Rows are used to divide your page into the logic blocks with columns, columns later will hold your content blocks. Rows can be divided into the layouts (eg. 1/2 + 1/2, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3, and so on). Your page can have unlimited number of rows. To change row's position, click and drag row's drag handler (top left row's corner) and drag row around (vertical axis). Please note that you can edit a row property to enable full width option.

Introducing Row based on below screenshot :
  1. Delete button to delete the row and the all elements inside it.
  2. Clone Button to dublicate the row and all its columns and elements
  3. Edit button to give it custom class name and enable fullwidth mode.
  4. Dragger button to move vertical wise.
  5. Layout section to divide the row into differnt column width combinations.
  6. Column Edit button inside this row
  7. Plus button will bring up all elements pop up in order for you to choose which element to drop into this column.
Columns

Columns are part of the row and they hold your content elements inside them. Columns can be reordered. Click and drag column around (horizontal axis). That way you can group elements in logical groups and then drag them around with your mouse (to re-position).

Content Elements

This is a list of available content elements that can be placed inside of the columns. Think of them as bricks. With those bricks you are building your layout. Most of the content elements have options, to set them click pencil icon. To save changes click save button.

  1. Delete Button to delete the shortcode
  2. Clone button
  3. Edit button to view all of this shortcode options
  4. Shortcode Name
Row Types in Visual Composer
  1. Click on Add row Button in Visual composer and click on pencil icon.
  2. In Edit Row window, you can select a row type depends on you needs.

  4. Blox : This type is suitable for rows that you need to set Background Image or Background Color, specific Height or set a custom class
  5. Parallax : This type is suitable for rows with Parallax functionality. In this case you can set Background Image and Parallax scroll speed for better result
  6. ProccesBox : This type is necessary for insert Webnus Process Item on it. In this case you can set icon, Title and Process Count
  7. Video Background : This type is necessary for Video Background. In this case you can set Background Video, Video Type and Foreground Pattern.
  8. MaxSlider : In this row type, you can create Full Width Slider at the top of the page.

Page Composer Settings

You can control page composer global settings such as disable/enable in a post type and user roles that can use a shortcode. You can find these settings from WordPress dashboard left sidebar settings > Page Composer. Once you arrived to this page, you will face with 2 options :

Content types :

This option allows you to choose which post type should have the page composer feature. Please note that only post types will have this feature that they have WP editor feature. so for example clients will not have page composer even if you check mark its post type.

User groups access rules :

This option will give you the ability to select which shortcode should be appeared in the specific user role. this is useful when you give subscribers the ability to post, so you can disable some shortcodes for them.


Setting up the One page

In one-page website, the main menu links to internal sections of the page not to other independent pages. For example Services link in menu goes to Services Section in the same page not to Services Page. To do this we used standard html linkage which called anchor link. Now let's see how to set one-page menu in Max-one step by step:

Craeting one page scroll is very easy. In fact you just create a normal page using any shortcodes and contents you like. However the difference is you need your navigation menu items to be linked up with in-page contents. That is a very easy process. Follow these instruction:

  1. Add a new page and enter a title for your page
  2. look for the page attributes on the right side of the page and find The "Onepage Menu" page template
  3. Switch to Visual Composer by clicking on BACKENDT EDITOR button
  4. Start adding contents now. Feel free to insert anything you want. However note that you need to give each section a name.
  5. For example let's say we want to add a Our Team section to our page. We normally start off by adding a Row. To do this click on Add Elements or Add Row button on the top of visual composer (Figure 1-2).

  6. Once it is placed on page, click on Edit button (Figure 1-2).
  7. 1Fig 1-1 - Create you contents with "Row".


    1Fig 1-2 - Create you contents with "Row".


  8. Now inside the edit options windows you can give an ID name for your sections. Find a text field called  ID  in Rows (Figure 1-3) and Give them any name you like. For example a good name for our-team section could be "team" or "OurTeam". Just avoid spaces in your characters.
  9. 1Fig 1-3 - Give a name to your Rows.


  10. After you gave a name to your section continue adding contents to your section. Repeat the above steps for every new section you have. For example when you finish with "our-team" section and want to start adding "portfolio" you need to add a Row and give it a new ID name such as "portfolio".
  11. When you finish creating contents Save your page by pressing "Publish" or "Update" button on the right side
  12. Now it is time to create your menu. Go to Appearance > Menus (Figure 1-4)
  13. Create a new menu and enter a name for your menu (Figure 1-4)
  14. Open Links on the left side menu (Figure 1-4)
  15. In URL field Enter the name you just added to your section back in step 5 preceding by a hash tag prefix. For example for portfolio section if you gave it a name like "Portfolio" then you have to enter #Portfolio (Figure 1-4)
  16. In Link text field you can enter any names but remember that it is better to be related to you URL above. So if you have entered#Portfolio above in URL then you can enter Portfolio here in Link text field. Please note that this text will be showed up on your navigation bar. (Figure 1-4)
  17. 1Fig 1-4 - Create a menu and add some links to it.


  18. Click on "Add to Menu" button
  19. Repeat steps 10, 11 and 12 for each section
  20. Now Save your menu by clicking on the Save Menu button on the right side
  21. You are almost there! You just need to make your menu appears in the right location. To do this Go to Manage Locations on top of the page
  22. Under the Theme Location, Assign your newly created menu to Main Navigation. Just select your menu name in the menu and Save Changes 
  23. That's it! Now you have your one page scroll website up and running.


Setting up the Home Pages

Once you have created your home page, you need to select it to show up as the home page. To do this, follow the steps below.

  1. Navigate to Settings > Reading

Tip: for Retina issue choose a logo by double size (height and width) of what you like to see in browsers, and then make it smaller by changing the “Logo Width”. In other words, upload 2x size of your logo for Retina purpose and it will be big for your website, to make it in your desirable size make it as small as you like by changing the Logo Width.

Theme Modifications

The theme comes with a backend that allows for heavy style customization (colors, fonts, etc).
However often times this is not enough, and you users want to add their own CSS Rules to the theme. We heavily recommend to use a so called Child Theme for that. Using a Child theme allows you to update the theme and at the same time you also make sure that you will never lose any of your modifications to a theme update.

Using a child theme is simple: Just install it, as well as the original "Extent" Theme on your server. Instead of activating the Original Theme you activate the Child theme. Now if you want to add any custom css to your theme use the child themes style.css. If you want to add any custom php functions use the child themes functions.php.

Now if you update the original Theme with the latest Version, your child theme will stay in place with all your customizations.


Modifications tricks:

Inspect element

If you want to make changes to design then you can use Inspect Tool to see the source code of your website and the CSS rules applied to it.  
To enable it right click and from the pop-up menu select Inspect Element

For more details please visit Chrome inspect element or Firefox inspect element. Meanwhile searching in google about it will be helpful.

For example we try to change bottom gray border color in footer. please watch the below video tutorial:

Create page with shortcodes

Extent includes a lot of shortcodes. Most pages and elements are built using shortcodes, it provides major flexibility to use them anywhere, and also allows users to quickly and easily build pages. All shortcodes are accessed in the usual spot, which is in the Visual Editor Field. See the screenshot below to see where they are located. Click a shortcode icon and simply populate the content inside of it, some of them have various options to choose from, and the column shortcodes can be wrapped around other content to keep them inside columns. See our demo code for additional examples.

Note: We recommend you to use visaul page builder rather than attempting to creat pages with shortcodes

How to Use Column Shortcodes

Column shortcodes are used addition with the other shortcodes when you want to keep your content within a specfic column. For example, you have an image slider, and you want it to only cover half the width of the page. You would then wrap a [one-half] column shortcode around the slider. This is the basis for all columns. Below is an example with a little bit of math that helps explain the process of how you need to specify the order of the columns.

  • If you want four columns you'd use four sets of [one-fourth] shortcodes.
  • Each set contains and open tag [one-fourth] and a closing tag [/one-fourth]. Your content for the columns goes between the open/close tags.
  • So a row of content in 4 columns looks like this [one-fourth]...[/one-fourth] [one-fourth]...[/one-fourth] [one-fourth]...[/one-fourth] [one_fourth]...[/one-fourth]

Most of these shortcode are familiar to you except two shortcodes that we will explain them for you
For create full width section with custom background, you can use two below shorcodes

  1. Blox
  2. BloxDark

Both of them are similar, the only difference is that in "BloxDark" all entries are white and in "Blox" all entries are dark. So if you have pictures with white background use "BloxDark" and vice versa.
Both of these shorcodes have four predefined colors that can be use in below syntax

  1. Class="bluebox"
  2. Class="redbox"
  3. Class="greenbox"
  4. Class="yellowbox"

It should be noted that these four colors could be dark or pale depending on the type of the container

Important advice: Considering the existence of varied type of short codes in this document, we recommend you to use prepared samples rather than attempting to write your own shortcodes in demo pages

2) Visual Page Builder

Extent comes with Visual Page Builder. This software allows you to forget about shortcodes and create most complex layouts within minutes without writing a single line of code!

Our Visual Page Builder is based on widely popular Visual Composer by mixey. It has very simple and intuitive interface, but before getting started with building layouts, you may find it useful to get accustomed with Visual Composer documentation:
 http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Visual_Composer.

In the editor mode you'll have "Add element" button, which you should click or drag to the working canvas, to add content block or row to your page. Clicking the "Add element" button will show the content element selection menu. Content blocks are divided into categories so you can filter. Alternatively you can type the shortcode name to filter down the items instead of search them visually.

To  start creating new layout click “Visual Composer” button on the top right of WYSIWYG (text editor):

vc

WYSIWYG editor change to Visual Composer canvas. You can work with it as you do with regular Visual Composer.

 

Page Builder buttons :
  1. Add Elements, using this button you can drop all shortcodes avalaible in Extent. You can drag this button and drop to a page section, row or a column.
  2. Add Row. This is a column container. This shortcode does nothing other than holding controlling columns and elements.
  3. Templates : You can save a page using this section and use it in other page. Its handy when you built blocks and columns that you might need them later in other pages.

After clicking “Add element” button, you’ll notice vast set of interface elements (shortcodes) developed exclusively for your theme . Their interface is build on same principles as standard Visual Composer shortcodes. Therefore if you’re already familiar with Visual Composer, working with our shortcodes will be very simple for you!

Elements Blocks :

Below image shows the list of all shortcodes that you can use in Extent. You can use category filter and search element name field to find your shortcode much quickly.

Rows

Rows are used to divide your page into the logic blocks with columns, columns later will hold your content blocks. Rows can be divided into the layouts (eg. 1/2 + 1/2, 1/3 + 1/3 + 1/3, and so on). Your page can have unlimited number of rows. To change row's position, click and drag row's drag handler (top left row's corner) and drag row around (vertical axis). Please note that you can edit a row property to enable full width option.
