**Getting Started** ========== Introduction ------------ We would like to thank you for purchasing Unero! We are very pleased that you have chosen Unero for your website, you will not be disappointed! Before you get started, please be sure to always search our Documentation. We outline all kinds of good information, and provide you with all the details you need to use Unero. - [Documentation Online](http://docs.drfuri.com/unero/) - [Support Center](https://drfuri.ticksy.com/) - [Last ChangeLog](http://docs.drfuri.com/unero/changelog/) Install WordPress ----------------- To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. You should ALWAYS be running the latest version of WordPress anyway, because otherwise you put your whole site at risk for potential threats. Never use an outdated version of WordPress. If you need help installing WordPress, follow the instructions in [WordPress Codex](http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress). Below are all the useful links for WordPress information. - [WordPress Codex](http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress) – General info about WordPress and how to install on your server. - [First Steps With WordPress](http://codex.wordpress.org/First_Steps_With_WordPress) – General info about multiple topics about WordPress. - [FAQ New To WordPress](http://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_New_To_WordPress) – The most popular FAQ’s regarding WordPress. Recommended PHP Configuration Limits ------------------------------------ Many issues that you may run into such as; white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows: - max_execution_time: 180 - memory_limit: 128M - post_max_size: 32M - upload_max_filesize: 32M Licensing Plugins ----------------- The theme included the licensing plugin: Visual Composer, we purchased it from codecanyone.net and included it for free in the theme package without any issues. However, if you want automatic updates and support from the plugin developer, you need to purchase it separately (this is 100% optional). Because we are not allowed to include the license key for it, so you do NOT have a purchase code for that plugin and you can’t enter anything in this field. If there is any update, we are accountable for updating the theme with the newest version of this plugin. Files included in the package ----------------------------- Below is a full list of everything that is included when you download the main files, along with a brief description of each item. - `unero.zip`: main theme file that need to be uploaded to host to install Unero theme. - `unero-child.zip`: basic child theme of Unero theme. It is created for people who want to customize code of the Unero theme. - `Demo Data`: this folder contains demo data that exported our demo. - `widgets.wie`: this file contains all widgets which are exported from our demo. - `demo-content.xml`: this file contains all sample content which will help you to have a first look of how we use Unero theme. - `customizer.dat`: theme option backup file. - `Documentation`: documentation folder that contains documentation files. **Installation** ========== How To Install Your Theme ------------------------- After you download the package from ThemeForest, please unzip it. You'll see a file called `unero.zip`, which is the main file needed to upload and install. > Important: One of the most common reasons people have issues is > because they try uploading the Full zip that includes sample data, > documentation…etc which displays the “The package could not be > installed.
