Oscend Documentation


Thank you very much for purchasing our Oscend WordPress Theme. We’ve put a lot of hard work into it, and we hope you love it as much as we do. As far as the documentation is concerned, we have tried to cover as much as possible to help you get your new template up and running and to help you customise it.

BEFORE YOU START CUSTOMIZING

If you plan to make some modifications to the code of the theme, will be better to make them via the child theme. If you make modifications directly to the parent theme, you will lose them when the theme is updated. When you make modifications inside of the child theme instead, you can update the parent theme without losing any change you have made.

Child theme you’ll find in a “oscend-child.zip”.

More information about child themes you can find in WordPress Codex- Child_Themes.

One click import

You can either start building your site from scratch, or import one of our demo sites and then modify it to fit your needs. We will now explain how to do the latter.

oscend comes with one-click import module. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Login to WordPress admin
  • Go into admin panel > Apperance > Import Demo Data
  • Choose the demo site that you wish to import and click on the “Import Demo” button.

Import troubleshooting

Many issues that you may run into such as; white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits.

If you cannot change these settings, use the next migration method .

The solution is to increase the PHP limits.

You can do this on your own .

  • Find the php.ini file in your Server config files.
  • For WAMP, its in apache2/bin/apache2.2.22/bin/php.ini
  • Go to the line “max_execution_time=30” .
  • Change it to 360 or any other large value.

Or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows

  • max_execution_time 360
  • memory_limit 128M
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

Plugins Activation

You can use these plugins with the oscend theme and you are fully compliant with the Envato’s policy, but you cannot activate them as the owner (so don’t try to use the oscend purchase code to activate one of these plugins).

When you purchase a theme from ThemeForest that bundles Visual Composer and Revolution Slider, you are free to use these Premium plugins with the theme. However, your oscend purchase does not give you individual Visual Composer and Revolution Slider licenses that allow you to activate or download these plugins as you wish. Activation doesn’t mean the plugin will not work but only that you cannot receive direct updates. Please don’t worry if you see warning messages about the plugin license activation.

To update you need:

 

  • Navigate to the Plugins menu in your WordPress admin area.
  • Deactivate revolution slider, delete it
  • Go to Install Required Plugins
  • Upload and install the new version
  • Activate Visual Composer.

Auto-Updating

The Envato Market plugin can install WordPress themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest & CodeCanyon by connecting with the Envato Market API using a secure OAuth personal token. Once your themes & plugins are installed WordPress will periodically check for updates, so keeping your items up to date is as simple as a few clicks.

You can add a global token to connect all your items from your account, and/or connect directly with a specific item using a singe-use token & item ID. When the global token and single-use token are set for the same item, the single-use token will be used to communicate with the API.

  • Download the latest theme zip file from ThemeForest
