We do our best to produce high quality themes with great functionality, premium designs and human readable code. Before you get started, we highly encourage you to get familiar with this documentation file.

If you have any questions that are beyond the scope of this help file, please feel free to post them on our support forum at https://axiom.ticksy.com/.

Please Note! Our support covers installation procedure, assistance for theme features and any issues you may encounter when using the theme. Unfortunately, we cannot provide support for customization or 3rd party plugins. If you need help with the customization of your theme, you should enlist the help of a developer.

Please be aware that we do not include theme related .PSD files in the theme package, because it might significantly increase the size of a downloadable archive and also because most of our customers often just do not request it.

In case you need these files you can always request them by contacting our support department at https://axiom.ticksy.com/.

Bundled Plugins

The theme package contains a number of bundled plugins. Please click here to view the list of plugins that come included into the theme.

If a new version of a bundled plugin is available, it will be included in the next theme release. You can also request it by submitting a support ticket.

Bundled plugins are fully functional without the activation using a registration license key. In case you are willing to receive automatic updates and support from the plugin team, you will need to purchase the plugin separately. Only the direct buyers get the plugin license key.

Installation Information

Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running WordPress 3.9 or higher, PHP5 or higher, and mysql 5 or higher. If you use hosting with limited resources (for example GoDaddy and other lowcost shared hosting providers), you may experience issues with one-click demo data installation feature.

We recommend you to contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server PHP configuration limits are as follows:

  • max_execution_time 600
  • memory_limit (up to) 256M
  • 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 (up to) 256M
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.

IMPORTANT! To avoid any errors that might come up during the installation we recommend to have memory limit set up to 512M.

Here is the list of other recommended web hosting services:

Theme Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme, please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted theme files. After unzipping the archive, you will see the following files:

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 "Spiced Blog" theme, you must have WordPress installed. For information regarding WordPress platform installation, please check the WordPress Codex - http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress or check this video tutorial.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend updating your WordPress to the latest stable version 4.0 or higher. This will help utilizing all of the latest features of WordPress.

NOTICE! The theme is designed for free WordPress version downloaded at WordPress.org. We do not guarantee the theme full compatibility with installations on Wordpress.com due to limitations in website control and theme customization.

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

You can install the theme in two ways:

  • via FTP:
    1. Log into your web server with FTP client software.
    2. Unzip spiced-blog.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /spiced-blog theme folder.
    3. Upload the extracted /spiced-blog theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder.
    4. Activate the newly installed theme. Go to Appearance > Themes and activate it.
  • via WordPress:
    1. Login to admin panel.
    2. Go to Appearance - Themes and click on the Add New button.
    3. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse... (Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select "spiced-blog.zip" and click Install Now button.
    4. After the successful installation, click on Activate or go to Appearance - Themes and click on Activate to activate the newly installed theme.
    5. After the theme is activated, you will be prompted to install recommended plugins: Instagram Feed, MailChimp for WP and Recipe Card.



      All these plugins are included into the theme archive, or can be installed from the WordPress.org repository.
      The theme can function without any of these plugins. But if you want your website look precisely as the demo page, you have to install all recommended plugins and import demo content. This is a good idea if you are building your website from scratch.
      However, if you have an existing website, you should be very careful with plugin installation and importing demo data: this may affect the website content and structure. Please read the Demo Content article for details.
    6. Attention! If you want to make changes in theme’s templates or functions, we recommend activating a child theme before demo data installation, otherwise the Theme Options will be lost. Please see the Child Theme section for more information.

Plugins Installation

In order to make the theme look exactly as the demo page, you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link.

You will be redirected to plugins installation page. Check all listed plugins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take a few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.

After the installation you will get a notification informing that plugins were installed successfully.

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 templates or functions, we recommend that you install the child theme and apply changes there. To learn more about the purpose and basis of creation of child theme, please visit WordPress Codex at http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.

In the theme package you will see materials for the child theme. It’s located in "spiced-blog-child.zip" archive. You can install the child theme just like you installed the main theme (see above, in the section "Installation").

Attention! When activating a child theme or switching back to the parent theme, the theme options will be lost (That was the requirement of the ThemeForest team). We recommend activating a child theme before demo data installation.

A few recommendations on how to use a Child Theme from AxiomThemes:

  • Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in a child theme. It doesn’t concern only .php-files with templates and basic logic, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc.
  • If you want to change some of the theme-related functions or to add new ones, copy/add all the required functions into 'functions.php' in the "spiced-blog-child" folder. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme logics.
    IMPORTANT: If you want to replace some functions from other files (except functions.php), e.g. from _wp_utils.php or _utils.php, we do not recommend you to copy respective files into the child theme, but you should create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be done, so that when updating the theme, new functions from these files are available for use.
    As for other files - put out the templates from the folder 'templates', images from the folder 'images' etc. - to make changes copy theme into the folder 'child theme' and make changes there.

Demo Content

Our themes have simple One click demo data import tool. It's very easy to use and you can get a precise copy of our demo website in just 1 click.

Before installing demo data, please make sure you have installed all the required plugins, please refer to Plugins installation section of this document for details.

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

  1. Log in to your site as an administrator.
  2. If you see a message prompting to install required Themerex Utilities plugin, click on "Begin installing plugins" and install it on the corresponding page.
    IMPORTANT: The recommended plugins (MailChimp for WP and Instagram Widget) are not mandatory for installation of demo content but highly recommended.



  3. Go to Appearance -> Install Demo Data:



  4. On the page that showed up please set the required parameters.
    • Only pages, forms and sliders - Allows you to select the content you need to be imported for a definite page, slider, etc. It is recommended when the site is already built.



    • Whole demo-site content - Allows you to import whole demo content. It is recommended for new installations of WordPress.
      IMPORTANT: When installing whole demo-data ALL EXISTING CONTENTS of your website will be deleted and replaced with the new data! We highly recommend that you install demo data only on blank WordPress install.

  5. Click on "Install Demo Data" button.
    IMPORTANT: Please wait while demo data is being copied from our server to your site. It may take a while and depends significantly upon Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.

  6. After the data is successfully imported you will see the "Congratulations" message:



    In 99.9% it works fine, but if something went wrong and data was not imported, please repeat the procedure described above. The system will find the last item imported successfully and you will be able to continue the import.

    In case "Demo Data" installation stuck, you can manually install it by downloading the demo.zip archive from our server and extract it in your Theme's folder root directory. If the issue persists, please contact your hosting provider to make sure that your server configuration meets the Theme Requirements. Otherwise, please contact our support team at https://axiom.ticksy.com/. Our tech support operators will assist you.

Theme Update

IMPORTANT: Before you go ahead with the update, please check theme changelog and make sure you backup your old theme folder. Download it to your computer locally.

It is a good practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates.

Update using FTP client.

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to your downloads tab. Find the theme and download “Installable WordPress file”.

  2. Connect to your server using desktop client software (we recommend CyberDuck and Filezilla).
  3. Change directory to /wp-content/themes.
  4. Remove existing folder with old theme files.
  5. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from ThemeForest and upload to the theme folder.
  6. Update the included plugins if you see a notification message letting you know the plugins have a new version.
    • Navigate to WP Dashboard > Plugins > Installed Plugins.
    • Deactivate and delete the plugin(s) of old version.
    • Go to Appearance > Install Plugins and install the plugin(s) like it was described in the Plugins Installation section of this documentation.

Quick Start

After the theme activation and demo content import, we are ready to get started with basic theme settings like site title, tagline, logo, favicon etc.

To change your site title and tagline, go to Settings -> General. Please note, these parameters are important for search engines.

Another great idea may be setting custom permalinks structure to make them more SEO friendly and human-readable. Go to Settings -> Permalinks and make changes according to the example below.

"Customize" Settings

Now let's navigate to Appearance > Customize - the feature which makes theme customization extremely user-friendly and straight-forward, allowing the admin to manage the feel and look of the blog website easily from one place.

IMPORTANT: This is a "OnePage" theme. All the customizations are applied to the Home page only. Settings for the other pages and posts can be set up in "Single page" and "Single post" sections in the "Customize" menu. The rest of the posts and pages such as "Home with Sidebar", "List style", "Post Formats", "Standard" etc. are just examples (variations) of how the single page/post can look like.



We have integrated many additional options to the default WordPress "Customize" menu, which allows you to flexibly control the appearance and behavior of the whole website as well as of the individual page types.

Moreover, you can see the changes of the frontend right after the alterations - when the needed parameter is selected, without switching from admin to frontend each time. It saves much of your time and lets you customize your website just in several clicks. When you are through with the changes, you should click on "Save and Publish" button at the top. There are quite a lot of parameters here, but luckily the majority of them have default values that suit most of the users. Let's take a closer look at them:

General

In this section you can customize the general website look using the following settings.

MailChimp

MailChimp is a newsletter service that allows you to send out email campaigns to a list of email subscribers. MailChimp is free for lists up to 2000 subscribers, which is why it is the newsletter-service of choice for thousands of businesses.
This plugin acts as a bridge between your WordPress site and your MailChimp account, connecting the two together.
Check this link for more information.
More guides are available here.

The backend settings can be found in the WP dashboard menu > MailChimp > MailChimp tab.

[mc4wp_form id="427"]

Recipe Card

We have added the Recipe card plugin, to let you create beautiful recipes that readers can print, save and review. More information on how to use this plugin properly can be found here.
Please follow this link to get a better understanding on how to properly create your recipes: https://wordpress.org/plugins/recipe-card/faq/

So to add a recipe you need to create a post, hit "Visual" button in the right corner of your text field and press on the recipe button on your icons panel.

Once it's done the Recipe card window will pop up. Fill in all the required information and hit Save.

As soon as you finish the recipe card field will be generated.

This is how the backend ("Text option is activated") looks like:

And this is the frontend:

If you switch back to the "Text" mode you will notice the shortcode instead of the nice looking recipe card image.

[yumprint-recipe id='1']

You can actually use the shortcode to paste to other posts where you want your recipe to be displayed or you can stick with - let's say - more user friendly method we have described above. Choose any way you comfortable with.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that we have applied our custom CSS styles to this plugin to adapt it to our theme. If you want to activate the default plugin CSS styles, please open your styles.css (root directory.../wp-content/themes/spiced-blog/...) file and comment in the following lines: #4704 - #4803.
Check the screenshot below for more information.

Theme Translation

We recommend using Poedit software for translation-related purposes. To translate the theme to your language, please follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Poedit software.

  2. Navigate to the theme/.../languages/ folder and locate .po file. Copy it to your desktop for editing.

  3. Open the .po file. Now select the constant text string you need to translate from the "Source text - English" field and type in the necessary translation into the "Translation" field. You can translate as much as you want, just go through the file and click on each string in Poedit and add your translation.

  4. Next, you have to save the changes to your .po file using the naming convention based on the language code (e.g. pt for Portuguese) followed by the country code (for instance _BR for Brazil).

    To do that click on the "sheet" icon (you can also use hotkeys CMD+Shift+S in OS X or Win+S in Windows) and type in the name according to the screenshot below. The first lower-case letters define the language, whereas the second upper-case letter defines the country. In most cases, the language and country are the same, like “de_DE” for Germany. However, there is a difference for languages like English or Portuguese, which are spoken in several countries natively. In this case, the difference is in the first and second letter pairs; for the UK, the code would be en_GB, whereas the en_US stands for the USA. If you are not familiar with the codes for your native language and country, then visit the GNU website.

    See Language Codes and Country Codes for the lists of codes.

    Please note, if you use the wrong naming convention WordPress can not process your translation.

  5. When saving your .po file, Poedit automatically creates a new .mo file, with the same naming convention. According to the example above, the file would be called pt_BR.mo.

  6. Upload the .po and .mo files you just created to the .../languages/ folder. Make sure these files are in the same directory as the default.po and default.mo files.
  7. OPTIONAL! Only for themes with WordPress version 4.0 or lower.

    The last step is to tell WordPress what language to display. Open your wp-config.php file in a text editor and search for: define ('WPLANG', ''); string. Edit this line according to the .mo file you should already have downloaded (e.g. for the Portuguese spoken in Brazil you need to add define ('WPLANG', 'pt_BR');).
