Getting Started

WordPress Information

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. Below are all the useful links for WordPress information.


Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running at least WordPress 4.6, PHP5.6, mysql 5 or higher. If you use low-end hosting with limited resources (e.g. GoDaddy!), you may experience issues with "one-click" demo data installation feature. We recommend that you contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server PHP configuration limits are as follows:


max_execution_time 600

memory_limit 128M

post_max_size 32M

upload_max_filesize 32M

If you are running unmanaged dedicated server or VPS, you should check your php.ini file. Alternatively, you can edit .htaccess file in the root of your website and add the following values:


php_value max_execution_time 600

php_value memory_limit

php_value post_max_size 32M

php_value upload_max_filesize 32M

Setting these values will ensure you will not get error messages during the installation. To safeguard your website, please use secure passwords and the latest version of WordPress and plugins.


Theme Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme, please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted theme files. Some of the folders names may slightly vary. Treat the screenshot below as an example only.

If you try to install the wrong files, you will get missing styles.css file error. This is the most common error that means you are trying to install an incorrect package.

To install the theme, you must have WordPress installed. Check this link for more information.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend updating your WordPress to the latest stable version. This will help utilizing all of the latest features of WordPress.

If you have questions regarding the theme installation, we recommend reading the detailed instruction below.

There are 2 ways to install the theme:

  • FTP:

    1. Log into your web server with FTP client software.
    2. Unzip the muli.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /muli theme folder.
    3. Upload the extracted muli theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder.
    4. Navigate to the Appearance > Themes tab and activate the theme.
  • WordPress:

    1. Login to admin panel.

    2. Navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on the Add New button.
    3. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse...(Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select the "muli.zip" and click Install Now button.
    4. After the successful installation, click on Activate or navigate to the Appearance > Themes and click on Activate button to activate the newly installed theme.
    5. Once the theme is activated, you will be prompted to install the required plugins.
    6. If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend activating a child theme before demo data installation. Please see the Child Theme section for more information.


Child Theme

Child theme is for developers willing to make changes to core functions and code. If you are not planning to dig that deep, you can just skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT! If you want to make changes in theme's templates or functions, we recommend to install a child theme and apply changes there. To learn more about that, please visit the WordPress Codex website.

In the theme's package you can find all the necessary files for the child theme. The installation of a child theme is similar to the main theme.

A few recommendations on how to use Child Theme:

  1. Almost all files in the main theme are available for replacing in to the child theme. It does not concern only .php files with templates and basic logics, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders.
  2. In case you need to edit some theme-related functions or add new ones, copy/add all the required functions into functions.php.

PLEASE NOTE!We do not recommend copying respective files into the child theme folder. Instead re-create the respective functions in the child theme's functions.php file.


Plug-ins Installation

To make the theme look more similar to the demo page, you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link.


Alternatively, you can use Appearance > Install Plugins menu that redirects to the plug-ins installation page. Check all the listed plug-ins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take a few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.


Plug-ins activation should be done in the same way. Navigate to Appearance > Install Plugins menu, check all the listed plug-ins, choose Activate option and click on Apply button.


Available plug-ins:

  • KingComposer
  • NiceThemez Common
  • Redux Framework
  • Contact Form 7


Import Demo

Our theme includes a simple One click demo data import tool. It allows getting a copy of our demo website in just 1 click.

To import demo content into a WordPress site, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your site as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Tools > Muli Import Demos:
  3. Choose a demo and on click "Import" button.
    PLEASE NOTE It may take a while for demo data to be copied from our server to your site. It depends significantly on the Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.
  4. SUCCESS! The "Success" message appears after demo data successful installation.

Quick Start
