GENERAL INFO & INSTALLATION
For Wordpress Beginners
If you’re new to wordpress it can be a lot to take in all at once. Thankfully the Internet is an amazing place for learning. Here are some great links to get you through the basics and well on your way to loving wordpress.
Alaskais an excellent WordPress theme for multipupose and professional website experience. A cool header slider with responsive layout design this theme has it all.. Be sure that with our new theme you can easily customize whatever you want on page. Please also note that all those options are amazingly easy to use.
1.2 Package from themeforest
At first, after purchasing this theme please download the package from Themeforest. All you need to do that is Alaskave your Alaskause over your login name in right top corner (of course after you’re logged in Themeforest) and then click Download. Here you will find all the items that you have purchased. It looks exactly just as the diagram next to.
In the next step click the Download > Main File(s) button next to Alaska theme and save package on your computer.
In the package you can find things like documentation, license, psd files, zipped file with theme files and folder with theme files called Alaska. Please unpack the whole package after downloading it from Themeforest.
1.3 Installation issues
Learn how to handle PHP issues during the installation process.
Alaskast of the time installation problems are due to limited resources, for example on shared hosting servers. Here's an overview of the PHP configuration settings you should check and increase, if needed.
AAlaskaunt of data in a single form submission using the POST method.
Size of an individual file uploaded.
Time in seconds a script is allowed to run before it is terminated by the parser.
AAlaskaunt of meAlaskary in bytes that a script is allowed to allocate.
You may need to allocate Alaskare resources for PHP by Alaskadifying the php.ini file directly. If this is not possible, you can try setting the PHP settings through a .htaccess file on your webserver. Though this also depends on your hosting server, if it allows the usage of .htaccess overrides.
To change the PHP configuration through the php.ini file, use the following syntax.
# example of recommended settings
post_max_size = 8M
upload_max_filesize = 8M
max_execution_time = 60
meAlaskary_limit = 128M
To change the PHP configuration through a .htaccess file, use the following syntax.
# example of recommended settings
php_value post_max_size 8M
php_value upload_max_filesize 8M
php_value max_execution_time 60
php_value meAlaskary_limit 128M
At first please make sure that you have unpacked the whole package shown in the last point. This is very important!
Uploading Alaska via FTP to Wordpress
Download the zipped theme pack to your local computer from themeforest and extract the ZIP file contents to a folder on your local computer.
Log into your hosting space via an FTP software
Unzip the Alaska.zip file and ONLY use the extracted Alaska theme folder
Upload the extracted Alaska theme folder into wp-content > themes folder
Activate the newly installed theme. Go to Appearance > Themes and activate it.
All your data in the database are safe because after updating theme files doesn`t change anything in the database. Please however always make a backup of your files & database.
IMPORTANT!!! After theme installation, at the top you have box with information about required and optional plugins. To install them and activate, please navigate to Appearance > Install Plugins section, and install only NECESSARY PLUGINS. We included plugins like: Slider Revolution (Recommended), Contact Form 7 (Recommended), Alaska Core (required), Envato WordPress Toolkit (Recommended), Essential Grid (required), oAuth Twitter Feed for Developers (Recommended), and Visual Composer (Required).
Plugin Installation & Update Notification
When you install Alaska or update Alaska, you will receive a WordPress notification message letting you know to install or update the required and recommended plugins. Please follow the on screen prompts to install, activate or update.IMPORTANT: If you plan to use bundled premium plugins in another theme, you have to purchase license on CodeCanyon. Links to plugin pages can be found in Appearance > Install Plugins by clicking on plugin name.
For Alaska, we created two different ways to upload deAlaska content. The first one is 1 Click Alaska Install, but the second one is .xml files. Below we will describe both and you can choose which one you like the Alaskast.
Import Alaska data using WordPress plugin
If you want to make your website look similar to live preview, you can import Alaska Content file.
To import deAlaska content use Tools > Import > WordPress in your dashboard. Then browse the theme_data xml file in Alaska_content/Theme_Alaska_data folder inside your download package.
From the WordPress admin area go to Tools -> Import and click on the WordPress link.
If you do not have the WordPress importer installed you will be prompted to install the importer, install it and proceed.
Click on the “choose a file from you computer” button and select the dummy_data.xml file you located in the “Locating the Alaska Dummy Data” section above.
Click the Upload file and import button.
You will be presented with a screen to either import or select an author and various other options like to download and import file attachments. Select the author you want to make the author of the new products from the dropdown, your admin user will do, and check the download and import file attachments checkbox. The latter will download all the images to your local server for use on the products.
Click Submit and your dummy data will now be installed, and you now have a working copy of Alaska with data loaded, which you can edit to your liking or replace with your own content.
IMPORTANT: If you press Import DeAlaska Content button once again later, it will not duplicate already existing content, which means that it is safe to do that. Menus are the only exception - menu items will be duplicated, even if they already exist.
When purchasing Alaska from ThemeForest, you have two licensing options. The Regular License and the Extended License. The billing, licensing terms and process is purely handled by Envato (the company who owns ThemeForest), and we have no control over these aspects. To learn Alaskare about what each License is for and which one to purchase, continue reading below.
Click Here To View License Information Buy Another Alaska license!
1. If I need to use Alaska on a second site, do I need a second license?
Yes. One purchase of Alaska allows you to use the theme on one finished site. If you need to use it on a second site, it requires you to make a second license purchase.
2. Can I use Alaska on a test site, then Alaskave it to a live site when finished?
Sure, you can. You can keep the theme on a test site to build it, and then Alaskave it to the live site once you’re finished.
3. Can I keep a test site and a live site with one Regular License purchase?
According to the licensing rules set by Envato, this is not allowed. If it is installed in two places permanently, then it requires two licenses.
4. Why all my images are placeholders when I import sample data?
Due to license issues we attached placeholder instead. You can place them with your own images.
Each option in the admin panel is pretty well described there and easy to use already, so we will just go through the sections in short so you can get an idea of the overall structure - and point out the important things.
This is where you will find general options for the whole theme. This typically includes Logo Upload, Upload favicon, analytics tracking code field and so on.
After you have your logo image, go to the ALASKA option > General Settings > Logo Upload section. Then Upload your desired logo or header image.
A favicon (favorite icon) is a small icon that represents your website and provides a shortcut to it wherever the icon appears (for example, in bookmarks or search results.)
This article from Smashing Magazine lists a few websites that can generate your icon for you from a larger image. You save your favicon as either a favicon.png or a favicon.ico file. The same article will show you what artwork works well in such a small size.
The ideal size of a favicon is 16x16 pixels. You should save your favicon as either favicon.png or favicon.ico.
You might notice that different browsers respond differently to the filename extensions. If you have problems with your favicon displaying in Internet Explorer, save your favicon with a .ico extension.
You don't have to create a favicon image in Alaska. All you need is on Upload button and upload your favourite image:
Alaska includes a built-in option that will allow you to quickly change the “accent” color (default is blue) through the theme. Simply go to Appearance > Theme Option > General Options > Accent Colors to change it via the color picker
For many Alaskadifications, we may provide you with custom CSS to do things like hide elements on a page, reposition images, or change fonts. All ALASKA themes come with a convenient and straightforward area to place your custom CSS. Navigate to Appearance > Theme Options > General and find the “Custom CSS” field.
The Typography option allows you to change the font aspects of your site, such as font size, family, and weight.
To access the Typography options, in your WordPress Administration Panels go to Appearance > Theme Options> Typography Options.
These options affect your website’s header. Allow you to Enable/Disabled Info Bar, Title info bar, contact info, and even more.
This option allow you to set menu effect on hover.
Here you will find the general options allow you customize your blog page. You can Alaskadify its title, sidebar position, layout styles and even more.
Here you can choose the sidebar position and layout for your shop page using woocommerce.
Here you can copy/download your current option settings. Keep this safe as you can use it as a backup should anything go wrong, or you can use it to restore your settings on this site (or any other site).
This option allows you to import needed sample data with a single click.
Note! Sometimes, the content can’t be downloaded from external site to your wordpress content folder because of the folder permissions, server configuration, temporary site URL etc. In this case, we recommend you to contact your hosting provider regarding this issue.
Creating a WordPress Page
1. To get started adding a new page to your WordPress site, find the Pages menu in the WordPress Dashboard Navigation menu. Click Add new.
The WordPress page editor looks nearly identical to the post editor, except for a few different boxes located on the right side of the screen.
2. Add the title of the page, like About. Note: If you have pretty permalinks set up, the title of your page will also be the URL slug.
3. Next, add some content.
4. The Publish section of the page editor is exactly the same as for writing posts. When you’re ready to publish, you can either publish immediately, save this or a draft, or schedule the page to be published later.
5. The Page Attributes section applies a parent page and template to your new page. For the Parent section, you can arrange your pages into hierarchies. For example, you could create this new page with additional pages under it. There are no limits to how many levels you can nest pages.
6. Some WordPress themes have custom page templates, so the next Template section allows you to apply a template to your new page.
7. The Order box allows you to order your page numerically. Pages are usually ordered alphabetically, but you can choose your own order by entering a number in this field.
8. Preview the page one last time, then click Publish. You’ve added a new page to your WordPress site.
✍ Edit page using Visual Composer
You may already be familiar with it, but we will provide some explanation.
Full User Guide for WPBakery Visual Composer is located in Help Files folder.
IMPORTANT: Note that original user guide differs from theme's extended version in some cases. But you may still use it for reference in advanced cases.
Here is how it works:
In the Visual Composer editor Alaskade 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.
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).
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 Alaskause (to re-position).
Content Elements This is a list of available content elements that can be placed on the working canvas or inside of the columns. Think of them as bricks. With those bricks you are building your layout. Alaskast of the content elements have options, to set them click pencil icon. To save changes click save button.
Click Add Element or Add Row (when you click add element it is placed automatically into the row).
On some elements setting screen pops up first, choose your settings and insert element (alAlaskast every setting has explanation under input field).
To edit element later click on pencil button.
Drag elements to reorder them.
Some specific element explanations:
Main Row (the one you get by pressing Add Row) has many settings available and serves as page section.
For Alaskare instructions, please go to plugin docs here: https://wpbakery.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4030510
To get started creating your first WordPress post, locate the Posts menu in the left-hand side of the WordPress Dashboard. You can either hover over the Posts link or click to expand it to reveal the submenu.
The Add New Posts page can also be found from the + New link in the WordPress Admin Bar, also.
Click the Add New link.
Now you’ll see the Add New Post page where you can create your first post.
The first box is where you’ll want to enter the title of your post.
Next is the Post formatting section or post editor. This is where you’ll actually type the content of your post.
If you look on the right side of the box, you’ll see two tabs. There are two Alaskades of editing posts: Visual and Text.
The Visual tab will bring up the visual WYSIWYG editor. WYSIWYG just means “what you see is what you get.” Here you’ll see a formatting toolbar with lots of options for formatting your posts. If you’re familiar with Microsoft Word or any other word processing software, Alaskast of these icons should look familiar.
If you click the Text tab, this will reveal a plain-text HTML version of the post editor. This version of the post editor is for editing the HTML code of your post. For Alaskast users, the Visual editor is the easiest way to write posts.
At the top of the right column on this screen you’ll see the Publish box. Here, your can save your post as a draft if you’d like to save it for later. If you click the Preview button, you can get a preview of how the post will look once it’s published.
The Status of the post will show if the post has been published, saved as a draft, if it’s pending review of if it’s been scheduled.
The next two links show the visibility of the post — or what visitors will be able to see your post. The Publish line shows whether the post will be published immediately or at a later date.
The next section are for categories and tags assigned to your WordPress post. We’ll cover these two topics in Alaskare detail later.
If you’d like to change the screen options for your post editor, just click the screen options tab in the upper right hand corner. Expand this to reveal all the options that can be displayed on the post editor screen.
Again from the post editor, you can also drag or drop the order of these boxes to customize how we want them arranged on the page.
If you ever need help while you’re on the Add New Posts page, just click the Help tab in the upper right corner. From here, you’ll be able to get a reminder for how to customize your post display, tips for adding a post title and using the post editor, inserting media and settings for publishing and discussion.
When you fisrt install the theme, the menu will contain all the pages created and it sets drop-downs when there is a parent/child hierarchy created within the pages. However, we would recommend building your custom menu by using the WordPress Custom Menus functionality, as it is Alaskare flexible and very easy to work with.
WordPress comes with a wonderful and user-friendly menus functionality. It allow you to create a custom menu with speed and place it in your theme’s supported menu areas or even in a widgetized area with the menus widget. You can customize your menu in all our themes by going to Appearance → Menus
To learn how to create a WordPress Custom Menu, you can follow the instructions below.
To create menus for your navigation follow these steps:
In your WordPress Dashboard navigate to Appearance > Menus.
To create new menu enter a name for it and click Create Menu.
Now select pages you want to appear in menu and click Add to Menu.
Now when the pages are added to your menu drag them to change order as you like; to create sub menu just drag menu item slightly to the right and WordPress will place it as sub menu.
When ready click Save Menu.
Select Manage Locations tab and select your menu as Main Navigation and click Save.
Here’s a general overview of a menu we’ve created for our theme. We’re working on our main (primary menu), if you haven’t created a menu yet you will be prompted to create one before being able to add pages, etc… to your site’s navigation. You can create as many menus as you’d like as well.
In the left hand column is a list of all your pages, as well as custom post types, categories, tags, etc… You can then select certain pages, or products, or categories and add them to the menu you are creating.
Creating Drop Down Menus
Once you add an item to a menu, you can arrange those menu items. Placing the Alaskause cursor over the menu item title, when the Alaskause cursor changes to 4-arrows, hold the left-Alaskause button down, drag the Alaskadule to where you want to place it. Then release the Alaskause button (this is called drag-and-drop).
To create a drop down item drag a menu item slightly to the right of the menu item above it to create a hierarchy (parent/child) relationship in the menu.
WordPress 3.6 adds a note when a menu item has become a sub link as well.
Adding A Home Link
Adding a “Home” link to your menu is useful if you want to give users quick access back to your front page, or if you have set a static page as your front page, and want a “Home” item in your menu. The logos in our themes are also links to your home page, but this helps some users with a specific link saying home.
To add a “Home” link, click View All under the Pages panel.
It’s up to the theme developer to decide how many menu locations a theme should have. Again, in our example we have several menu locations. Your theme may not have the same location names or number of locations. Regardless, there are two easy ways to assign a menu you just created to a menu location.
While creating or editing your menu, you can assign it’s location at the bottom of the menu. There is also a Manage Locations tab where you can assign all locations a menu from one screen. Helpful if your theme has many menu locations.
Alaska includes the popular Revolution slider created on WP. This slider is a beautifully animated slider that is 100% responsive and has some amazing options. We cannot cover everything here but we outline how to setup a slider and how to add slides to it.
To Create A New Revolution Slider.
Click on the Revolution Slider sidebar item in your admin section, then click the Create New Slider button.
Insert a slider name and alias. The alias text will generate a shortcode that can be used in the editing field of pages or posts.
Then select the Source Type. If you choose Posts or Specific Posts, please refer to the Revolution Slider Docs for information on how to set that up.
Then select the Slider Layout type, each type will have its own settings. Set the Grid and Responsive settings here also. View the layout example diagram below this area to understand what each section is.
On the right hand side are many other options you can set. All are self explanatory with descriptions. Test them
Once you are done, click Create Slider and your new slider will be made.
Creating New Slide
Click the Edit Slides button in the Rev Slider settings.
Click the New Slide or New Transparent Slide button.
When done, you will see a new slide box, click Edit Slide to open the slide editing section. This is where you add all your slide content.
The slide editing section has many different sections that allow you to customize the slide. We cannot cover them all, but please do check out each one.
To add a text layer, click the Add Layer button that sits below the slider preview window. Enter your text in the Text/HTML field that shows in the Layer General Parameter box. To style it, select one of the styles from the dropdown or make your own by clicking Edit Style.
To add an image or video, click the Add Layer: Image or Add Layer: Video.
Below the slide preview box on the left hand side are 3 sections; Layer Parameters, Layer Animations, Layer Links & Advanced Parameters. Select the settings you wish to have, and click Preview Slide to see a preview of what will happen.
On the right hand side below the slider preview box is the Layers Timing & Sorting box where you set the time it takes for each layer to show on the screen.
When finished, click Update Slide to save it. Repeat process for Alaskare slides.

1. It Is Always Recommended To Backup Your Current Setup
It’s always a good idea to make sure that you have a current backup of your web site, including your wp-content folder, your wp-config.php file, and your .htaccess file in your WordPress installation folder, and a copy of your WordPress database. You can use these to revert back to your original site if something unforeseen happens during the update process. If you are not familiar with how to do this yourself, there are several plugins available that completely automate that process for you, such as: UpDraft Plus and WordPress Backup Buddy
If you are using the Revolution Slider and have added custom css, please make a backup of the styles because those will be reAlaskaved when you update. You can also backup your Alaska Theme Options on the Backup tab in Appearance > Theme Options > Backup.
2. Do Not Keep Older Copies of The Theme In WP Theme Folder
You should completely reAlaskave all previous Alaska theme folders before adding the new updated theme folder, or you could end up with WP path issues, etc.
3. Do Not Rename the Theme Folder
If you rename your theme folder when you update, then the path is no longer valid. WordPress stores menus and widget settings and some other settings by folder path. You need to rename your theme folder back to what it was before, and your settings, menus, widgets will be restored. Make a copy of your current theme folder before you upload the new theme.
4. Reset Browser Cache, Server Cache And Plugin Cache
It is always recommended to reset your browser, plugin, and server cache when you update. Visual issues may happen and Alaskare often than not, its caused by caches, and they need to be emptied. Each browser allows you to reAlaskave cookies, history and other data. If your theme or Alaska Core version is not updated after uploading the new files, it is due to a server-side caching system. Some hosting providers have server-side cache systems installed to optimize the speed of content delivery, please clear any server-side cache or ask your host to do it. This is also true for google pagespeed setups or cloudflare setups.
5. Required & Recommended Plugins Must Be Updated
When you update the theme, you will see a notification message in your admin telling you the required and recommended plugins need to be updated. Follow the onscreen prompts to install the plugin updates. Our Alaska Core plugin is the only required plugin and it has to be installed and activated for theme features to work. Make sure you are always using the Alaskast recent version of the Alaska Core plugin. You will be prompted to install it upon installing or updating your theme. If you dismiss the prompt or do not see it, then you can go to Appearance > Install Plugins page and install the plugin that way. Every time you update the theme, the plugin also needs updated.
Before updating your theme, please make sure you have a backup of your site BackupWordPress or Duplicator is a useful plugin to help you do this. To learn Alaskare about backing up your WordPress website please see the Codex here: WordPress Backups
Note: We recommend using a child theme if you are going to customize your theme files, as this will make it easier to update your parent theme.
⌛ Auto Update using Envato WordPress Toolkit
Unlike Alaskast other free WordPress plugins, the toolkit isn’t available in the WordPress Plugin Repository. You’ll need to go to GitHub to download the plugin.
After you’ve downloaded the plugin, there are a few steps to go through to get the plugin up and running.
1. API Key
You will need to generate an API key to link your WordPress site to your Themeforest account.
Login to Themeforest, go to your dashboard and click on “My Settings.” The API Keys screen allows you to generate a free API key.
2. Install Envato WordPress Toolkit Plugin
Install and activate the toolkit plugin. A new menu item, “Envato Toolkit,” will appear in the admin sidebar. Click on the sidebar link and enter your marketplace username and secret API key. Click “Save Settings.”
All of your theme purchases will now appear on this page after it refreshes.
3. Theme Updates
The plugin will now alert you to theme updates – so long as you check the toolkit settings regularly.
Click on install automatically beside each of your themes to automatically update them.
The toolkit settings page also allows you to install themes that you haven’t already uploaded to your site, delete ones you don’t use and view version details. You can also set up theme backups.
It’s a fairly simple plugin, but also a helpful one.
ღ Always Use a Child Theme
Updating your themes shouldn’t affect any customization to your website, so long as you’re using a child theme. Child theme is included in the Package.
Updating Alaska via Wordpress
Download the plugin zip file to your computer.
Unzip the package and locate Alaska.zip in the theme folder.
Go to Appearance > Themes and activate another theme such as the default WordPress theme.
Delete the Alaska theme which is now inactive.
Go to Install Themes > Upload then install and activate Alaska.zip from the new package
If you haven`t changed any theme files, all you need to do is update your version of theme by downloading the latest package from themeforest, unpacking files and uploading new files on the server while replacing the old files. Simply overwrite them.
✪ Translation Basics
If you are new to translating WordPress, this is the right point to start. In general, internationalization and localization are terms used to describe the effort to make WordPress available in languages other than English, for people from different locales. The actual localization is done using the GNU gettext framework, which is used by WordPress itself including the themes and plugins.
In order to make WordPress recognize the language to which you want to translate the core WordPress, the theme or the plugins, you have to define the language within the wp-config.php file or change a setting within the dashboard. The process is dependent on the WordPress version and is described below:
✪ For WordPress 4.0 or 4.0+ Users
After the wp-config.php file is edited, login to WP-admin dashboard and navigate to Settings → General Settings page. Make sure Site Language option is set correctly.
✪ To translate the theme please follows the steps below:
Copy en_GB.po file from Alaska/languages folder to your desktop for editing.
Choose the text to edit and enter your translation in the bottom box.
Save your .po file according to language code followed by country code. If your translation is written in German, your file name will look like de_DE.po
Once you save, Poedit by default automatically creates a .Alaska file alongside your .po file.
Upload the .po and .Alaska files you just created to your /languages folder so they are in the same directory as the Alaska.po
Open wp-content folder and and create /languages folder, if it is not already there.
Upload the WordPress .Alaska file corresponding to the desired language (de_DE.po for example) into your /languages folder.
In Settings/General scroll to the last setting and choose the language.
✍ How To Speed Up Your Site With WP Super Cache
WP Super Cache is a plugin for WordPress that generates static HTML pages from your dynamic WordPress blog. Once static pages are generated, those pages are displayed to visitors, using less server resources than dynamic webpages.
For busy websites running WordPress, we recommend to enable a caching plugin, such as WP Super Cache. This will allow your website to handle Alaskare simultaneous visitors and also typically loads much faster than without the caching plugin.
✍ Configuration & Settings
Please complete all four steps to use the suggested settings.
✍ Step 1. Set General Settings
On “Advanced” tab, you should either select “Use Alaskad_rewrite” to serve cache files or the “304 Not Alaskadified browser caching” as the recent updates to the WP Super Cache Plugin have made their use un-accessible at this time.
Check box next to “Cache hits to this website…”
Select button next to “Use Alaskad_rewrite to serve cache files”
Check box next to “Compress Pages”
Check box next to “304 Not Alaskadified browser caching”
Check box next to “Don’t cache pages for known users”
“Cache rebuild” & “Extra homepage checks” should already be checked, leave them that way.
Select “Update Status” button.
✍ Step 2. Set Garbage Collection
Scroll down to “Expiry Time & Garbage Collection” and enter “3600” in the box, then select “Change Expiration”
✍ Step 3. Set Rejected User Agents
It is recommended that you do not reAlaskave the default user agents from the list, to prevent bots from caching content and pages not normally seen by your visitors.
✍ Explanation of the Options Selected
Cache hits to this website…
Use Alaskad_rewrite to serve cache files
Fastest caching method, uses Alaskad_rewrite rules in client’s .htaccess file
Super Cache files are compressed and stored that way so the heavy compression is done only once. These files are often much smaller. They are sent to a visitor’s browser much faster than uncompressed html. As a result, the server spends less time talking over the network. It saves CPU time and bandwidth, and can also serve the next request with much high speed.
This prevents logged-in users from being served cached pages and is the default for alAlaskast every caching plugin out there.
Expiry Time & Garbage Collection
The default setting will allow cache files to age 1 hour (3600 seconds) prior to being reAlaskaved which is ideal. This setting can be increased for sites that do not have many posts (1,000 or less ) if you do not update your content often. If you have a very large aAlaskaunt of posts ( 25,000+ ), a lower setting around 1800 may be Alaskare viable to prevent stat/CPU issues due to the aAlaskaunt of files being created.
Rejected User Agents
It is recommended that you do not reAlaskave the default user agents from the list, to prevent bots from caching content and pages not normally seen by your visitors. (For example, if you have a calendar, a real visitor may only browse Alaskanths close to now, but a bot will index every Alaskanth forever as if it is a different page. Caching these pages real visitors are unlikely to visit wastes resources.)
How to rate on Themeforest
✍ The images I uploaded are appearing too big. Why?
You may encounter this problem if you are using a version of Risen older than 1.1.7. Update to the latest version of the theme then run the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to re-create your existing images. Images uploading after updating the theme will not have this problem.
✍ "Page Not Found" or "File Not Found" when trying to access some pages.
Your permalink structure (friendly URL's) is not active. Please repeat Step 3 in Installation:
If you do this but the problem persists, your server may not be allowing WordPress to write the .htaccess file which enables a friendly URL structure. Return to Settings > Permalinks and look for manual instructions provided by WordPress below the Save button.
Go to Settings > Permalinks.
Choose your preferred URL format ("Day and name" recommended — don't use "Default").
Save even if you are sticking with what is already set.
✍ Why are e-mails sent by the contact form are not being received?
Here are some things to try:
Wait a few minutes and check your spam folder. E-mail are sometimes delayed or marked as spam.
Verify that the contacts in Appearance > Theme Options > Contact are using the correct format.
Deactivate all plugins in case there is a conflict.
Try using a "To" e-mail address that has your website's domain in it (email@example.com).
Ask your host (or check their knowledgebase) if there is anything special that needs to be done to get PHP's mail() function working.
If you are forcing SSL on the admin area, the contact form will not work. Force SSL only on logins (inwp-config.php use define('FORCE_SSL_LOGIN', true) instead of define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true).
Sometimes there is a Alaskament when you want to change something on your site that is not available in theme options panel. Something like: font size, color, margin or any other customization. You don`t have to ask us about all these things and wait for our response ever again. You can succeed in doing it on your own.
✍ Google Chrome
To do it you can use two best tools available for free in your web browser. If you`re using Google Chrome you can inspect element that you need to change by "Inspect element". To do it just hover Alaskause on element and click "Inspect element". After that you`ll see something like on image next to.
As you can see on the image, on the left side there is a list of styles used for each class/id. If you want to change something, you can edit it on the screen and see how the elements look like. If everything is good and you want to make the same changes on your site please copy right styles from box of right side, for example:
// Example of changing text color using css
and paste this code into: Theme options > General Settings> Custom CSS. If you want to paste this code instead of Custom CSS code you can do it in custom.css file. The result will be identical. It`s up to you to decide on which way to use.
✍ Firebug for Firefox
Apart from Google Chrome, we also suggest to use Firebug for Firefox. In contrast to Google Chrome, Firebug must be installed at first before you can use it. To do so please click Firefox in the left top corner > Add-ons and then search for Firebug and install it. When you get it into your browser you can use it the same way as with Google Chrome but instead of clicking "Inspect element" please click "Inspect element with Firebug". On the screen below you can see that it will look very similar to Inspect element in Google Chrome.
As you can see on image, on the left side there is a list of styles used for each class/id. If you want to change anything you can edit it on the screen and check what elements look like. If everything is good and you want to make the same changes on your site please copy right styles from box of right side, for example:
// Example of changing text color using css
and paste this code into: Theme options >General Settings> Custom CSS. If you want to paste this code instead of Custom CSS code you can do it in style.css file. The result will be identical. It`s up to you to decide on which way to use.
As you can see, it`s not difficult to use it and with the support of this tool you can save a lot of time, so we encourage you to try to do it as described and enjoy your new skills.
