Zolix 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.
Host: Server hostname (ftp.mywebsite.com)
Left: Shows the files on your computer
Right: Shows the files currently on the web server.
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/Theme Options so you can change logo, choose color skins and many more.
Since v1.2.21, Zolix is expanded with a live front end page builder. Every page demo is created with Zolix elements specially designed for 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.
Zolix has a one page predesigned template for a quick start as well as section. What does this mean? This means you will be able to replicate any page or section with a click of a button. For this you must import the predesigned library by following 2 simple steps:
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 the one page template Zolix as seen in demo:
In order to have your one page template set as front page, you must go to settings/reading and assign Static pages:
front page -> to home
posts page -> to blog.
Save. That's it!
To create a portfolio page, we must have some portfolio items first. So, navigate to Dashboard/Portfolio and add a new item. Then:
We assume you've already added a few portfolio items as shown in the video above. Now create a blank page, name it Portfolio (or whatever you like), select the Portfolio template from "Templates" and publish (yes, leave blank).
The contact form belongs to Contact Form 7 plugin. You are asked to install this plugin once you activate Biscaya, 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. The contact page is actually a predesigned template that you can replicate with a click of a button just like the rest of the pages (make sure you watch the videos above).
Using the one page template you might want to link to each section. Make sure you add a keyword to each section id then link it in your menu by using the full link+ID.
In example, say you want to create a section called "about". Use the page builder feature of adding a CSS ID, type about. Then go to the menu and add a Custom Link item, name it About (or whatever you wish) and inside the link area type http://www.yourwebsite.com/#about. Remember, the CSS ID must match exactly.
Since Zolix 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 ruin any of the prebuilt templates that Biscaya offers, the original copy always remains, so experiment as much as you want until you create your perfect page!
If you’d rather create it manually, please, read our detailed article: “Protect Your WordPress Customizations with a Child Theme”.
"Zolix" 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.
