Introduction and quick start guide.

Thank you so much for purchasing our theme called Geobin – WordPress Theme. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or problems with this theme. No guarantee is provided, but we will do our best to provide you with the best possible assistance.

First Step #

  • Documentation – That’s where you
  • License – Some info about theme licensing terms
  • Dummy Content – Placeholder content for testing the theme
  • SampleData – Import Data to get the exact Site as the Preview Page
  • Upload – This is where all Theme files are (zipped & unzipped format)

First of all, if you are new to WordPress, I would recommend learning a little bit about it before you get started. Here are some nice Resources on how to get started with WordPress.

What are Parent and Child Themes? #

A WordPress child theme takes the functionality of another theme, named the parent theme. It gives you the possibility to customize an existing theme. Instead of modifying the theme files directly, you can activate the child theme and work within it.

All customizations are stored in the child theme and anything in the child takes priority over the parent. So if the same file exists in both child and parent, the file from the child will control that aspect of the theme.

Working with child themes, your customizations are safeguarded from future upgrades because you only upgrade the parent theme, which you never edit, while the customizations are protected in your child theme which you don’t upgrade.

Why use a Child theme?

Safe Updates. You can easily modify your website using child themes without ever changing the parent theme. When a new version of the parent theme appears, you can safely update it as all your modifications are saved in the child theme.

Easy to Extend. A child theme has great flexibility. It does not require writing a lot of code. You can modify only those template files and functions that you need.

When you install one of our Geobin themes you must upload both Geobin parent and Geobin child theme folders to /wp-content/themes/ but you should only activate the Geobin Child theme via Appearance -> Themes.

Install Required Plugins #

After activating the geobin theme you will see the below window. and install all required plugins.

Note: We have moved from the Smart slider to the Revolution slider. You must create the slider section separately if you wish to use the revolution slider after importing the demo material.
Make sure you backup your website before making updates to the theme.

Click on Tools > Demo content install > Install

Note: If you have existing data on your site, then you have to import an XML file. Because one-click demo data overrides your existing data.

It will take some times to install demo data

You are done ! 🙂
