In addition, recently there was a powerful update realized for this template - new gorgeous skins, various premade sections, compatibility with different plugins, as well as other premium things. But that's not what this article is about. Today, I want to tell you how to set up and activate Monstroid2 WordPress theme on your WordPress website in one click. We’ll explore purchasing the theme and installing it on your website, activating the theme, installing the plugins and skins, and getting Monstroid2 ready to work. Remember, to complete the process of purchasing the theme, you will need a TemplateMonster marketplace account.
Well, let’s start!
Go to a product page of Monstroid2 WordPress theme. Click on “Get It Now” red button that will take you to the checkout page. On the open window, you can add to your cart additional services or products you would like to get with the Monstroid2 WordPress theme. After clicking on the Checkout Now button, you’ll see the available payment methods. If you have a promo code, enter it in the appropriate field and press “Apply”.
After the checkout process, you will need to look at the mailbox that you have assigned to your account. There, you will find the email with the order details. In this email, you also will see “Download Monstroid Theme Wizard” button. Click it and the plugin will be downloaded to your computer. However, do not close your mailbox, because later you will need some information from the letter to activate the theme from your WordPress dashboard.
Installation through the WordPress dashboard
Now, head over to your WordPress dashboard. To install Monstroid2 theme wizard, you will not need to go to the Appearance option and then install it like a WordPress theme.
Instead, you need to do these steps:
Go to the “Plugins” section and click “Add New”. Press “Upload Plugin”, choose the Monstroid2 setup Wizard file and click “Install Now”. Activate the plugins after installation.
The next step is entering your order ID. You can get it in the email that was sent to you after you completed the order. Make sure there are no spaces or characters that do not have to be there. Otherwise, this order ID will not work.
Skins and plugins installation
If everything is correct, your theme will now be activated and you will be given a choice to continue with a parent theme or to use the child theme. Developers recommend continuing with a child theme - it is easier to customize later.
The theme wizard has downloaded everything for you. So now you can select the skin and start the installation. You will see a wide variety of skins, and you can install them right away or view the demo of the particular skin. In addition, this collection of skins will constantly be updated by developers.
Once you choose a particular skin to install, choose which plugins you’d like to go within the skin. Then all the plugins will be installed automatically.
After that, you’ll get three options to choose how the demo content (media library elements, post pages and more) will be appended to your website:
- Append the demo content to your existing content (the sample data will be added to the current content of your theme).
- Replace the demo content to your existing content (your current content will be replaced by the new demo content).
- Skip demo content installation (your current content will stay as it is).
