To use Gigaland, you must be running WordPress 5.0 or higher, PHP 7.0.x or higher, and MySQL 5 or higher. We have tested it with Mac, Windows and Linux. Below is a list of items you should ensure your host can comply with.

  • Check to ensure that your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress.
  • Always make sure they are running the latest version of WordPress.
  • You can download the latest release of WordPress from official WordPress website.
  • Always create secure passwords for FTP and Database.

Hosting is more secure when PHP applications, like WordPress, are running using your account’s username instead of the server’s default shared username (www or www-data). The most common way for hosting companies to do this is using PHP. Just ask your potential host if they run PHP or something similar.

Recommended PHP Configuration

Many issues that you may run into such as: white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

  • max_execution_time 600
  • memory_limit 512M
  • post_max_size 64M
  • upload_max_filesize 256M

You can verify your PHP configuration limits in the System tab in the Backend-mainpage. Take a look in the left sidebar for WordPress back end -> Tools -> Site Health -> Info -> Server.

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 plug-ins.

Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme, please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted the theme files. Some of the folders names may slightly vary. Treat the screenshot below as an example only.

If you try to install the wrong files, you will get the missing style.css error. This is the most common error that means you are trying to install an incorrect package.

Theme Installation Steps

Step 1: Navigate to Appearance -> Themes

Step 2: Click Add New, then click Upload Theme -> Choose File

Step 3: Navigate to the .zip file on your computer, then click Install Now

Step 4: When the installation complete, click Activate. You will be redirected to Themes page with Gigaland activated.

Install via Wizard

After you activate the theme, a wizard popup will appear, you will now go to the steps of the installation.


Install via Dashboard

When you are not involved in installing the theme through the wizard, you can install the plugins easily through the theme's control panel.

Let's start with our awesome demos. You can easily install demo content with one click with the steps in the popup wizard.

Step 1: Active Theme

Step 2: Install Plugin

Step 3: Import a Demo

Update

  • It Is Always Recommended To Backup Your Current Setup We recommend you have a current backup of your site. You can use Duplicator plugin to backup/restore your site.
  • Do Not Keep Older Copies of The Theme In WP Theme Folder You should completely remove all previous theme folders before adding the new updated theme folder. Don't just rename the theme folder. If you rename your theme folder when you update, then the path will be no longer valid. Because WordPress stores menus and widget settings and some other settings by folder path, you will need to rename your theme folder back to what it was before, then your settings, menus, widgets will be restored. So the total renaming process has no meaning.
  • Reset Browser Cache, Server Cache And Plugin Cache It is always recommended to reset your browser, plugin, and server cache when you update. Visual issues may happen and more often than not, its caused by caches, and they need to be emptied. Each browser allows you to remove cookies, history and other data. If your theme or Bravis Addons version is not updated after uploading the new files, it is due to a server-side caching system. Some hosting providers have server-side cache systems installed to optimize the speed of content delivery, please clear any server-side cache or ask your host to do it. This is also true for google pagespeed setups or cloudflare setups.
  • 4. Update Child Theme If you have copied template files from parent theme to child theme, please make sure to revert to parent theme first to confirm if the issue exists there too. If it doesn’t, please update the templates copied to child theme with the parent theme.
  • Required & Recommended Plugins Must Be Updated When you update the theme, you will see a notification message in your admin telling you the required and recommended plugins need to be updated. Follow the onscreen prompts to install the plugin updates. We have listed some required plugins and they have to be installed and activated for theme features to work. Make sure you are always using the most recent version of these plugins. You will be prompted to install it upon installing or updating your theme.

Step 1: You need to deactivate the current Gigaland theme in Appearance -> Themes section by simply activating a different theme. Once you activate a different theme, you can delete the Gigaland.

Step 2: Retrieve the gigaland.zip file from your new Themeforest download. If you download All files & documentation, then you need to unzip the archive file you received, the gigaland.zip file will be inside of it.

Step 3: Then simply upload and activate the Gigaland file in the Appearance -> Themes section like you've done when installing theme.
