Here's a great video by WooThemes on how to install Wordpress
To install the theme use the theme installer in the WordPress administration. Go to Appearance > Themes and click on the tab Install Themes. Choose upload. Click on Browse..., select the bliss.zip theme file and click Install Now.
After successfully installing the theme click on the Activate button. You can also go to Appearance > Themes and click on Activate were the newly installed theme is located.
It is required that you install the CF-Post-Formats plugin to make the theme work as it should, so there should be a yellow notification box appearing in your Wordpress Backend telling you to do so, if it isn't there, you can go to Appearance > Install Plugins and install CF-Post-Formats and activate it.
If you are going to use the instagram widget we highly recommend using a plugin called W3-Total-Cache. It is used to cache results from Instagram. The reason for that is to minimize the request to the Instagram servers and improve load times on your site. The plugin allows you to store the data that is retrieved from Instagram on your server and fetch it again and again without having to ask Instagram each time a page is loaded. After you install this plugin go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and click Activate. Then go to the settings of the plugin by clicking the settings link under W3 Total Cache and find an option called Object Cache (see image) and check the enable checkbox.
If you navigate to Appearance > Theme Options you will find all of the customization options for this theme. Most of these options are self explanitory but we have provided descriptions for each option displayed on the right side.
If there is anything that you would like to be able to customize just let us know and we'll add that feature.
You have to set up a menu for your site, to do that you go to Apperances > Menus and click create menu, give it a name and make sure it is selected in the Theme Location selection. (see image below) The menu will then display in your header in the order you set it up in.
