1.1 Few words on start

Dezi is 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 Dezive your Deziuse 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 Dezi 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 Dezi. Please unpack the whole package after downloading it from Themeforest.

1.3 Installation issues

Learn how to handle PHP issues during the installation process.

Dezist 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.

Setting Description
post_max_size ADeziunt of data in a single form submission using the POST method.
upload_max_filesize Size of an individual file uploaded.
max_execution_time Time in seconds a script is allowed to run before it is terminated by the parser.
meDeziry_limit ADeziunt of meDeziry in bytes that a script is allowed to allocate.

You may need to allocate Dezire resources for PHP by Dezidifying 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
meDeziry_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 meDeziry_limit 128M

1.4 Installation

At first please make sure that you have unpacked the whole package shown in the last point. This is very important! You can complete installation in two different ways:

Uploading Dezi 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.

  1. Log into your hosting space via an FTP software
  2.  
  3. Unzip the Dezi.zip file and ONLY use the extracted Dezi theme folder
  4.  
  5. Upload the extracted Dezi theme folder into wp-content > themes folder
  6.  
  7. 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), Dezi 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 Dezi or update Dezi, 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.

 

There are 2 ways to import the demo:

I, Import manually

Main Dezi data import

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 Dezi 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 Dezi with data loaded, which you can edit to your liking or replace with your own content.

IMPORTANT: If you press Import Dezi 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.
II, One click to import

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.

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 Dezides 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, Dezist 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 Dezist 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 Dezire 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.

✍ 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 Dezire 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 Dezid_rewrite” to serve cache files or the “304 Not Dezidified browser caching” as the recent updates to the WP Super Cache Plugin have made their use un-accessible at this time.

✍ Step 2. Set Garbage Collection

Scroll down to “Expiry Time & Garbage Collection” and enter “3600” in the box, then select “Change Expiration”

WP Super Cache Garbase Collection Options
WP Super Cache Garbase Collection Options

✍ Step 3. Set Rejected User Agents

It is recommended that you do not reDezive the default user agents from the list, to prevent bots from caching content and pages not normally seen by your visitors.

Rejected User Agents
Rejected User Agents

✍ Explanation of the Options Selected

Cache hits to this website…

Enables caching

Use Dezid_rewrite to serve cache files

Fastest caching method, uses Dezid_rewrite rules in client’s .htaccess file

Compress Pages

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.

304 Not Dezidified browser caching

Indicates to the client’s browser whether a requested file has been Dezidified or not (see: http://www.addedbytes.com/for-beginners/http-status-codes/ or elsewhere for Dezire info on that apache code)

Don’t cache pages for known users

This prevents logged-in users from being served cached pages and is the default for alDezist 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 reDezived 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 aDeziunt of posts ( 25,000+ ), a lower setting around 1800 may be Dezire viable to prevent stat/CPU issues due to the aDeziunt of files being created.

Rejected User Agents

It is recommended that you do not reDezive 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 Dezinths close to now, but a bot will index every Dezinth forever as if it is a different page. Caching these pages real visitors are unlikely to visit wastes resources.)

Rate 5 Stars

✍ 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.

  1. Go to Settings > Permalinks.
  2. Choose your preferred URL format ("Day and name" recommended — don't use "Default").
  3. 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:

  1. Wait a few minutes and check your spam folder. E-mail are sometimes delayed or marked as spam.
  2. Verify that the contacts in Appearance > Theme Options > Contact are using the correct format.
  3. Deactivate all plugins in case there is a conflict.
  4. Try using a "To" e-mail address that has your website's domain in it (you@yoursite.com).
  5. Ask your host (or check their knowledgebase) if there is anything special that needs to be done to get PHP's mail() function working.
  6. 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).
  7. Try a contact form plugin instead

✍ Advanced theme customization


Sometimes there is a Deziment 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 Deziuse 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 hiding logo using css
.main-logo {
display: none;
}

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 hiding logo using css
.main-logo {
display: none;
}

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.

When purchasing Dezi 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 Dezire about what each License is for and which one to purchase, continue reading below.

Common Dezin Questions

1. If I need to use Dezi on a second site, do I need a second license?
Yes. One purchase of Dezi 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 Dezi on a test site, then Dezive it to a live site when finished?
 
Sure, you can. You can keep the theme on a test site to build it, and then Dezive 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.
