Theme Requirements

In order to proceed with the theme installation, you need to make sure you have the latest version of WordPress (4.1+) on your self-hosted site. The theme has been built to work with the latest version of WooCommerce (2.3+).

1. Install Theme

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information on installing the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex. Upon downloading the main .zip file from Themeforest, you'll have all files you need inside. Extract the .zip file you downloaded and inside you will find the theme zip file called "the-bigone.zip", that is the file you need to install.

Please Note: You can install the theme in two ways: through Wordpress admin, or via FTP. If you have trouble installing the theme via Wordpress, please proceed with installing it via FTP and you will be able to get around the issue.

1.1) Wordpress Installation

Follow the steps below to install via Wordpress.

1.2) FTP Installation

Follow the steps below to install via FTP.

There are known issues with FTP clients for Mac computers which replaces the existing folders instead of merging with the theme folders. I would strongly recommend you to use FileZilla if you are using a Mac computer.

1.3) Importing The theme Demo Data

Importing the theme demo data is as easy as clicking on a single button. Navigate to your wordpress admin area>Appearance>Theme Options>Import Demo tab and click the button on the left side.

Importing the theme demo data will replace ALL existing content with the demo content!!!

Before you import the data make sure that you use fresh WP installation, the theme is activated and all required and recommended plugins are activated!!!

When the theme files are uploaded and you activated the theme and required plugins, you would also need to make some settings configuration .

SETTING UP THE HOMEPAGE AND BLOG

To set one of the pages you have create as a Homepage and the main blog page:

  1. Go to Settings > Reading
  2. Select "A static page"
  3. For Front page select the page you want in the select box. If no demo content is uploaded you will need to create a new page.
  4. For Posts page select the page you want in the select box. If no demo content is uploaded you will need to create a new page.
SETTING UP THE PORTFOLIO

To set one of the pages you have create as a portfolio page:

  1. Create a page and name it "Portfolio" or whatever you need it to be
  2. Select "A static page"
  3. In the right column set the Template attribute to "Portfolio Category Grid template.

Next step - click on Portfolios>Portfolio Categories in the left menu:

  1. Create the categories you need in your portfolio (e.g. Web projects, Print projects, Lookbooks etc.)
  2. Click on Porfolios>Add new
  3. Create some projects to be displayed in your portfolio page.

Each portfolio post can have one or multiple portfolio categories assigned. You can also use some of the predefined Project details fields, Main features fields and Additional details. At the bottom-right of the page you could set the featured images (gallery) for the portfolio post and also assign the image preview type - Slideshow OR CloudZoom

SETTING UP THE SHOP

Weh you install the WooCommerce plugin, it would automatically create all pages needed for the shop, including the main "Shop" page. Alternatively, you could set a custom shop page in Woocommerce>Settings>Products>Display.

SETTING UP THE PRODUCT IMAGE SIZES

You would also need to set the recommended for the theme product image sizes. Keep in mind even if you have the WooCommerce's lightbox enabled, it would be overwritten by the CloudZoom if the last option is enabled in the theme options!

WITH THE ABOVE STEPS COMPLETED, THE THEME IS NOW FULLY ACTIVATED AND CONFIGURED


 

 

 

 

 

 

BigOne Theme Options is the place where you can control the appearance and some of the functionalities of the theme like creating and setting sidebars, image preview types, colors, backgrounds, fonts, countdowns, sliding blocks etc.

ADVANCED BACKGROUNDS

The BigOne theme gives you the ability to place a fuullscreen video background (*youtube only!), fullscreen image/images slideshow background on selected pages. All pages except shop categories, could have their individual settings with different backgrounds OR you could set the backgrounds globally (for the entire site, for the entire shop area, for the entire blog area etc.).

You would need to keep in mind that the backgrounds have their own strict hierarchy:

  1. Video backgrounds are always first!
  2. If you set both video background and an image background for a certain area/page - video would be displayed
  3. If you set a global video background for the site, it would overwrite ANY other image backgrounds set on per page/area basis
  4. If you set a global image background for the site, you can still set a different video or image background/slideshow on per page/area basis.

Additionally, for the video backgrounds you could set a:

  1. Video start time (in seconds) (*REQUIRED) - this is the second from the video beginning where you want it to start playing. Usually it is set to 0 so the video starts from the beginning.
  2. Video end time (in seconds) (OPTIONAL) - this is the time of the video from the beginning where you want it to stop playing or loop from the start time
  3. Video Loop (OPTIONAL) - whether the video should start again when it reached the end or not.
  4. Video sound (mute) - whether the video should play with sound or not. If sound is enabled, video playback controls would be displayed, giving the user options to stop/pause/play and mute the vide0

All the theme options are selfexplanatory and easy to understand.

All theme options have their default values pre-assigned. If you want to reset the settings, just hit the "Reset defaults" button on the bottom left of the page.

SLIDING SIDEBLOCKS

The BigOne theme gives you the ability to place up to 6 (3 on the left and 3 on the right side) sliding Sideblocks revealing their content on hover, which could display any HTML you want to put there. The positions are predefined and would only show up if their title is NOT EMPTY! You can use them to place promo information, HTML code like Facebook or Twitter widgets, simple text or even video.


 

 

 

 

 

 

The BigOne theme comes with two default menu positions - One standartd on top of the page and one sliding menu position below the menu.

Follow the next steps to define menus for each of the theme's menu locations:

  1. Navigate to Appearance>Menus
  2. Make sure you enabled the positions accrdingly - Top Menu - All Pages and Side Menu - Left

In each menu, you can add as many items you need: links, pages, posts, custom links, shop categories, direct links to products, internal or external link.:


 

 

 

 

 

 

The BigOne theme comes with the famous Visual Composer drag-and-srop page builder by WP Bakery.

While the Visual Composer comes built-in and integrated within the theme, keep in mind you don't actually have a full license, so you can't update it by yourself and you can't ask the Visual Composer developers support questions (unless you have purchased a separate license). Even if you have purchased a separate license, we would STRONGLY RECOMMEND you not to update it by yourself and wait for a theme update instead! The theme theme is constantly update and developed, so we would do our best to update all plugins as soon as possible, when a new version is out.

If you face dificulties with the Visual Composer plugin, consult with the plugin documentation provided with the theme or check the video tutorials available online.

The BigOne theme is using several types of slideshows on different locations.

Slideshow module and the FlexSlideshow module

The Flex Slideshow for posts, pages and portfolios works with the featured images for every post/page and portfolio. When selecting featured images, if you set more than 1 (the theme gives you the ability to upload up-to 5 featured images), a featured post slider is created automatically. It would be displayed on top of the page/post and also in blog posts listing pages (the blog page, blog categories, blog archive etc.)

Flex Slideshow is also used (optionally) in portfolio projects (unless you set a CloudZoom gallery option, which is made individually for every project in it's edit page).

Flex Slideshow could also be assigned manually to ANY position in content of pages and posts using the Visual Composer shortcode.

OWL carousel slideshow

The OWL carousel slideshow is an option enabled in Theme Options, converting all related products, related posts and related portfolio projects into a swipe/touch enabled responsive carousel. It could be set ON/OFF in Theme Options and the setting is global for all related products, related posts and related portfolio projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Revolution Slider is an advanced, multilayered responsive sldier plugin built by ThemePunch. This plugin features tons of unique transition effects, an image preloader, video embedding, autoplay that stops on user interaction and lots of easy to set options to create your own effects.

Before you can use the sliders in your posts and pages, you would need to create them. Than you could simply attach them as a featured slider of your posts and pages. Alternatively, you could use the Revolution Slider integration with the Visual Composer and place sliders wherever you want in your content.

IMPORTANT: THE REVOLUTION SLIDER INCLUDED WITH THIS THEME DOESN'T GIVE YOU A SEPARATE LICENSE FOR THE PLUGIN ITSELF! AS YOU ARE NOT A LEGIT PLUGIN BUYER, YOU CAN'T ASK THE PLUGIN AUTHOR FOR SUPPORT!

Even if you have purchased a separate license, we would STRONGLY RECOMMEND you not to update it by yourself and wait for a theme update instead! The theme is constantly updated and developed, so we would do our best to update all plugins as soon as possible, when a new version is out.

If you face dificulties with the Visual Composer plugin, consult with the plugin documentation provided with the theme or check the video tutorials available online.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The BigOne theme comes with unuque product feature built-in. We are proud to introduce the WoCommerce limited time offers with a Groupon-style countdows. In order for the countdowns to function properly, you would need to do the following:

*IMPORTANT It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to disable ZloudZoom on product listings and leave it active for the product page only, if you use countdowns. Otherwise, the cloudzoom script could cause the countdown to stick on screen in some browsers!

  1. Set Countdowns as ENABLED in Theme Options>Shop tab
  2. Make sure your products with discount have "Sale Price Dates" scheduled. Both Start Date and End Date must be set!!!
  3. Products on sale without Start Date and End Date would be displayed as normal sale products without countdown.

The BigOne theme limited time offer countdows are prelocalized to 51 languages and work perfectly, converting the countdown automatically, depending on the chosen language.
