Before installing The Fox theme, you must install WordPress. If you have already a WordPress installation and ready to run a theme, please skip this step.
Please visit your download page on ThemeForest, find Fox theme and download it.
If you choose “All files & documentation“, then you’ll get a zip file containing the theme file and few extra files. Please unzip it until you get
fox.zip, that’s the actual theme file to install.
If you choose “Installable WordPress file only“, then you can install the zip file right away, no further step.
Go to Your Site Dashboard > Appearance > Themes > Click Add New > Upload Theme then choose to upload fox.zip file
Click to “Install Now”, wait for it to be uploaded completely. Then click to “Activate”.
Your theme now has been installed. You’ll see a “Fox Magazine” on the left menu. Click there, you’ll see a welcome screen with useful information to get started.
If you don’t see such a screen but you see something like “stylesheet is missing“, please read how to fix stylesheet is missing.
You’ve done installation and can use The Fox immediately. However, Fox comes with few plugins we highly recommend you to install so that Fox can express truly its power.
Please go to
Dashboard > Fox Magazine > Install Plugins to see all recommended plugins and start installing them. Here’s the list of plugins:
Please go to
Dashboard > Fox Magazine > Import Demo to select your preferred style.
You can either choose to import all content or import only demo settings.
What’s the difference?
Before you import
Process the import
Hit the button “Import Full” or “Import Settings“. It takes about 5 – 15 minutes to import full demo because it’s the time to download images from our server to your site.
After finishing importing process, you can start using your site, delete demo posts you don’t like and customize it as you want.
To customize your site, please go to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize you’ll see a lot of settings there.
If you don’t see a green success message:
The Fox classic has few homepage variations, such as sidebar left, background, header stack 2 etc. Those demos are slightly customization in homepage builder sections. After importing, you can go to Dashboard > Apperance > Customize > Homepage Builder to set them.
