Arlo - Portfolio WordPress Theme

Introduction

First of all, Thank you so much for purchasing this template and for being our loyal customer. You are awesome!

This documentation is to help you regarding each step of customization. Please go through the documentation carefully to understand how this template is made and how to edit this properly.

WordPress General

A working version of WordPress.org must be installed before you can install the Arlo. If you need help installing WordPress, follow the WordPress Codex

Before using any theme, it is important to understand how native WordPress functions work, and how to establish ownership of your new site.

Theme Installation

To use Arlo WordPress Theme, you must be running WordPress 5.0 or higher, PHP 5.6 or higher, Elementor Page Builder 3.6.0 or higher and mysql 5 or higher version. Below is a checklist of items your host needs to comply with to ensure proper Arlo operation:

  • Ensure your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress.
  • Make sure the latest version of WordPress is up and running.
  • If necessary, you can download the latest release of WordPress from the official WordPress website.

There are two methods to install the theme. If the normal installation method [a] is not supported by your web host, you will have to use the alternate option [b].

a) Normal Installation


  1. Login to WordPress Admin and browse to Appearance > Themes.
  2. Click on the Add New Theme (or "Install Themes" tab for older versions) and click Upload.
  3. Browse your computer to select "arlo.zip" (it's in the zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest). Click "Install Now" button.
  4. Once it's uploaded, click the Activate link.

b) FTP Installation (alternate method)


  1. Use your FTP software to browse to wp-content/themes folder.
  2. Upload the arlo folder.
  3. Once it's uploaded, go to your WordPress Admin, browse to Appearance > Themes.
  4. Click the Activate link.

Important:   After activation, you will be presented with arlo-core plugin that you should activate. Do not forget to activate it or not all of the theme features will be available.
Note:   If you are migration from a theme which used the native featured images functionality of WordPress. Please use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to resize all the thumbnails. Click the link above and download the free plugin, and read through the steps it contains, it has all the information you need. Run it from Tools > Regenerate Thumbnails.

Demo Content Import

Before we start to import a demo content we have do following instructions:

  1. Set up PHP Configuration limits

    Issues you may encounter, such as demo content fails when importing and similar issues, are generally related to excessively low PHP configuration limit settings. You can either increase these limits on your own, or contact your web host and ask to have the limits increased to the following minimums:

    • memory_limit - 96M
    • max_input_vars - 3000
    • max_execution_time - 600
    • post_max_size - 32M
    • upload_max_filesize - 32M
    • allow_url_fopen - ON

  2. Verify your PHP limits

    You can check them by installing the WordPress phpinfo() plugin and checking Settings. The first column refers to your installation value, and the second column refers to the limits of your host. The latter values are often lower if you have selected a cheaper hosting package.


Now we are ready to import a demo content

Important:   Please do not import content on a WordPress installation that already has a lot of content. Or the very least, make a backup first. A catastrophic mess can be created.
Note:  In some cases you would like to remove demo content. You can remove all posts, pages, etc using WordPress Reset plugin. Be aware that this plugin resets the WordPress database back to it's defaults. Deletes all customizations and content. It does not modify files only resets the database.

There are two methods to import a demo content. If you have SSL Certificate on your website you can use method [1] One Click Demo Importer (auto), but if you have not installed SSL Certificate or you couldn't import a demo content via method [1] you can use method [2] with XML File (manually).

Let's take a look at both methods.


1. One Click Demo Importer [auto / video tutorial]



2. With XML file [manually / video tutorial]




Method 2. [Instructions]


We highly recommend against using this method in production. Please only use on an extra copy for testing or experimenting. This method most likely will fail on shared web hosts. Uncheck "import attachments" option if it fails and try again.


  1. Install and Activate All Required Plugins



  2. Install Contact Form 7 (optional: if you want to import contact form)



  3. Install WooCommerce (optional: if you want to import products with their images)



  4. Go to Tools > Import > WordPress, install WordPress Importer and run it.



  5. Select necessary XML file for demo(located in the main zip file in "xml" folder) and upload XML file into the section where said: Choose a XML file for content import and click Import Demo Data.

    For example: For Personal - Bona Green Demo you must select "personal - Bona Green.xml" XML file.







  6. Please be patience as it will take quite some time. Do not interrupt it.

  7. Once it's done, go to Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations. Select "Main Menu" next to "Main Navigation".



  8. Go to Edit Menus on the same page, select "Main Menu (Main Navigation)" from menus to edit and click Select. Click to expand Features and select Mega Menu for Links under Mega Menu.



  9. Setup your homepage to "Main Homepage" in Settings > Reading > Your homepage displays and select A static page and choose Home Modern as homepage

Translation & Internalization

Theme comes with .po file included under the languages folder. To translate:

  1. Download and install Poedit.
  2. Open arlo.po file located here \wp-content\themes\arlo\languages\ using poedit tool and translate the existing text to your own
  3. Save the file with the locale (for example: ru_RU.po).
    If you have already setup WordPress in your language, you can get it from your wp-config.php file under, for example: define('WPLANG', 'ru_RU');In this case, you would save your file as ru_RU.po.
  4. Step above should have generated a .po and a .mo file. Copy both these files and put them into the languages folder of the theme.

Your Language & Localization


After translating, you may wish to use the correct locale to translate and localize your WordPress installation completely. Refer to Installing WordPress In Your Language at WordPress Codex to learn how to.
