Layana is a Wordpress theme, so you must install Wordpress first. There are several ways to install WordPress but the easiest way would be to use one of the one-click autoinstallers available from you hosting company. Click here to learn how to install WordPress with the most popular autoinstallers, WordPress Toolkit, Cloudron, Fantastico, Installatron, and Softaculous.
There are two ways to install a WordPress Theme. We recommend you the first one.
To Install a Theme via WordPress Dashboard follow these steps:
To install a WordPress Theme via FTP, follow these steps:
Use a FTP such as Filezilla.
Enter the FTP account details provided by your web host in Host, Username & Password field
Host: Server hostname (ftp.mywebsite.com) Username: Username Password: Password
Users are prompted to automatically download, install and activate required (or recommended) plugins upon theme activation with a click of a button:
Navigate to Appearance/Customize so you can:
Since v1.1.3, Layana is redesigned with Elementor page builder. Elementor requires PHP 7 or greater. If your site is hosted on a server with an older PHP, ask your hosting provider to upgrade to the latest version of PHP. It will also help your website speed.
You can replicate Layana’s home page with a click of a button. For this you must import the predesigned template first, by following 2 simple steps:
You can check the out by creating a new page with Elementor and adding a template from “My Templates” list.
You can find an extended documentation for Elementor here.
That’s it for now. You will use the the imported templates when you actually create the pages. In example, view “Create Homepage” section below to see how it’s done.
Before actually building our website, it is recommended to assign the front end & posts page. So, if you haven’t done it already, please, follow the steps:
1. Create a new blank page, name it Home (or whatever you wish).
2. Create a new blank page, name it Blog (or whatever you like).
3. Go to settings/reading and assign Static pages:
front page -> to home
posts page -> to blog.
Save. That’s it!
As previously noted, Layana is built with Elementor page builder. This means you will be able to the homepage with the prebuilt template that you’ve just imported. If you skipped the “Page Builder Templates” section above, please, read that first otherwise this will not make sense. So, Here is how you create Layana’s homepage:
The contact form belongs to Contact Form 7 plugin. You are asked to install this plugin once you activate Layana, the process is automatic. Next, you can create your own contact forms via Dashboard/Contact/Contact Forms and either edit an existing one, either create a new one. Then you can easily add it anywhere via Page Builder shortcode element.
Since Layana is now using Elementor Page Builder, we also recommend you to go through its docs so you can use the theme at its maximum potential.
Remember, absolutely any widget can become a part of your page content, anywhere you wish. Any section you create can be saved and re-used in any page you wish. Any page you create can be saved and re-used anytime you wish. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment with Layana’s predesigned homepage, the original copy can always be re-inserted!
If you’d rather create it manually, please, read our detailed article: “Protect Your WordPress Customizations with a Child Theme”.
"Layana" theme is translatable. All you have to do is to install a specific plugin so you can easily translate the theme in your own language. We recommend you Loco Translate plugin.
"Layana" theme has Font Awesome integrated. This means you can use any icon from this list anywehere in your site with a simple code:
<i class="fa fa-telegram"></i>. Of course, you will replace
telegram with the keyword corresponding to the icon you wish to use. More examples:
<i class="fa fa-envelope-open"></i> <i class="fa fa-commenting"></i> <i class="fa fa-flag"></i>
