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 breeze.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.
If you are upgrading your site you might want to consider using a plugin to regenerate all the images for your old posts. Breeze uses a specific set of thumbnail sizes and you can easily convert your images with a plugin like this one
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.
We have a pretty cool menu going on in Breeze, this is how you use it.
Go to Appearance > Menus and make a new menu.
To make a title inside the menu simply write "title" in the Title attribute field
To make a divider inside the menu simply write "divider" in the Title attribute field
To make a disabled link inside the menu simply write "disabled" in the Title attribute field
As of v1.1 we support Portfolio items, simply open up your WordPress admin panel andy below "Posts" you'll see the Portfoliox
Our custom widgets are very easy to use, but here is a step-by-step on how to put them, and where they go.
We offer you seven widgetized areas, so the first one is Home Sidebar. That's the sidebar that displays on the front-page (or your default blog). The one below that one is Home Sidebar (Sticky), this is where things get interesting. You can place any widgets in that sidebar and they'll stick to the screen when the user scrolls down. The other widget areas pretty much explain themselves so I won't go into that (same "rules" apply)
There's also a "Home Sidebar", "Page Sidebar", "Post Sidebar" and "Footer Widgets" areas.. these.. well do exactly what you think they do, they are displayed in the defined areas in the theme.
Open up Appearance > Widgets and you should see our widgets just laying around there, waiting for some action.
Here's a list of our widgets as of v1.0
We've included our custom shortcode plug-in called BluthCodes!
If you have another shortcode plug-in watch out that it doesn't conflict with ours, you should be alright though.
Our shortcodes are:
We also have column layouts a la Bootstrap
There are buttons for every one of these included in the Editor where you post your pages and posts, click on that button and all the options for each one will be included. You can also check out how to use them on our demo page where there are more detailed instructions
This theme is translatable. The translation files .po/.mo are located in the inc/lang directory in the Breeze theme folder.
To translate the theme you have to use a specific translating program like POEdit
Here's a simple video by AJ Clarke showing how to do just that
Another way to translate the theme is to get the plugin called CodeStyling Localization
We actually prefer the Localization plugin because it's a more easier and faster way to get things done.
There are two ways to update your theme to the latest version.
