Theme Installation

All WordPress themes can be installed and activated one of two ways. Choose your method below to continue.

Theme Installation via FTP

If you are having issues with the automatic WordPress admin installation method above, it is recommended that you use the following traditional FTP installation instructions.

  1. Download and unzip the theme, if you haven't already.
  2. Login to your server using any compatible FTP client.
  3. Upload the entire theme folder ( e.g. "theme-name" ) to your "wp-content/themes" directory.
  4. Log into your WordPress Admin, select "Appearance" and then "Themes".
  5. Under the "Appearance" menu, click "Themes" and select the theme you wish to activate.

Theme Installation via the WordPress Admin

This is the installation method recommend for most WordPress users. This method can be a bit buggy at times depending on your server setup, so if you are having issues, try the traditional FTP installation method described within the next section.

  1. Log into your WordPress Admin, select "Appearance" and then "Themes".
  2. After the page loads, select "Add New" and then "Upload".
  3. Click "Choose File" and browse for "theme-name.zip".
  4. Click "Install Now" and wait for the page to reload.
  5. Under the "Appearance" menu, click "Themes" and select the theme you wish to activate.

WordPress Customizer

The customizer page is where you will find all the theme specific configuration, customization and featured content options. Within your WordPress admin, click "Appearance" and then "Customizer" to load the options page. There will be on screen descriptions and instructions for each option within the page explaining what the option is for and how to configure it. The customizer page and included options will most likely be different for each individual theme, but the concept is the same for all themes.

On Demand Homepage Setup

The On Demand theme is integrated with the WordPress theme Customizer (Appearance –> Customize), which allows you easy control over the theme options, homepage setup, etc., all within one location.

Site Colors:
Within the “Site Colors” tab you can set your theme’s main site colors, including Background color (which fills your background), Primary color (for main fonts and links), and Secondary color.

Header Image:
Here you may choose to upload your own header image or site logo.

Background Image:
Within this tab, you can easily upload your own background image. You may choose to display the background image in different ways as well. For example, you may choose to tile a background image, center the image, or set the image to fixed or scroll, depending on how you would like it to display.


Here you can set various settings for the On Demand theme; some of which include setting your favicon, choosing the category that you would like to display on your Portfolio page template, and enabling you Search bar and custom Video lightbox overlay. A good set of options to play around with.

Static Front Page:
Within this Customizer tab you can set all of your options for the homepage. Ensure that you select “Front page displays… Your latest posts” in order to utilize the intended homepage template. You may also setup the homepage featured slider, along with the sliders’ transition effects, etc., under the “Carousel” items.

Also, enable your Featured Category boxes that display below the slider here. Checkout the image here to view how our theme demo is setup.
