Update Themeback to top

Manual update

When new update will be released, the ThemeForest will notify you about that so you can download new package and install it manually. We don't recommend this approach. The more robust way is to use automatic updates.

Automatic update

To use automatic updates you need the Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin. If you haven't installed it yet, you can do that now via WordPress Admin › Appearance › Install Plugins panel.

For more information about its configuration, please read the Envato WordPress Toolkit Guide For Automatic Theme Updates.

Theme Translation back to top

There are many ways for translating themes and plugins. We recommend translating WordPress themes and plugins with Loco Translate plugin. It allows having all necessary tools right in your WordPress without switching to any other external programs.
If you don’t want or can’t provide access to your admin panel to other editors you can use online alternative of "Loco Translate" plugin.

Translation steps:

  1. After installing and activating go to Loco Translate section and choose in list your target theme/plugin and click on it.
  2. In opened page click "New language"
  3. Select your language (for example "German", code "de_DE") and click Start translating
    Note: To keep translations safe after future updates, always choose second location: languages/loco/themes/elemix-de_DE.po as shown in image below. All custom translations are stored in the wp-content/languages/loco/ directory so unless you reinstall the entire WordPress installation, all is safe in that folder. Without losing translations you can update the theme and any plugin. Even using the child theme is not mandatory.
    Note: this translation will be loaded only if your site language in WordPress Admin › Settings › General › Language is the same.
  4. Translate all phrases and click Save to generate all necessary translation files.

Child Theme back to top

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 easily skip this chapter.

If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend that you install child theme and make changes there. To learn more about the purpose and basis of creation of child theme, visit this page.

In the theme pack you will see materials for the child theme. It’s located in the "" archive. You can install the child theme the same way as you install the main theme (see above in the section "Install theme")

A few recommendations on how to use Child Theme from Elemix Theme:

  1. Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in the theme. It doesn’t concern only .php-files with templates and basic logics, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc..
  2. If you want to change some of the theme’s functions or to add new ones, you need to create file 'functions.php' in the folder "elemix-child", and add all required functions into it. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme’s logics.
  3. As for other files - put out templates from the folder 'framework/templates' ( maintaining files hierarchy ), images from the folder 'images' etc. - to make changes, copy theme into the folder 'child theme' and make changes there.
