How to install CeraMag theme

To install CeraMag Theme, first you need a working WordPress site. Click the link below to find out how to install WordPress: https://wordpress.org/support/article/how-to-install-wordpress/

We assume that you already have a running WordPress site. Now let’s install CeraMag.

You need to download the theme zip file from ThemeForest first. Go to Downloads on ThemeForest, and find CeraMag. Download the files and find ceramag.zip – that’s what you need for installation.

  1. On your website dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme.
  2. Choose ceramag.zip you just downloaded.
  3. Install and activate it.
  4. You will see the notice “This theme requires/recommends the following plugins…”, please click on those links and follow instructions to install those plugins.
  5. Done.

Please note: If you are going to write custom code for the theme, then please also upload the ceramag-child.zip file (you will find it in the folder “WordPress Child Theme” in your download package), then install and activate the child theme. Then you can change code or write your own custom styles for the theme in the child theme files. Later when you need to update the theme, just update ceramag.zip (the parent theme), so your custom code changes will not be overwritten (because they are all in the child theme).
