Below are the instructions you will need to set up the Hello Beautiful theme to look like the demo!

I hope you enjoy your brand new theme- and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Step 1: Installing your theme

 

Once you are at this screen, you will first upload the Genesis Framework. This is very important- your theme will not work without the Genesis Framework.

Once The Genesis Framework has completed uploading, click “Activate”

Next, upload the Hello Beautiful theme and click “Activate”

Your theme is now active- time to install the plugins!

Step 2: Installing Plugins

Your child theme has been custom styled to work with these plugins! I will explain in detail what to do with each one, but for now, just install them!

How to install new plugins:

You can either download the files from the links below, or search for the plugins through the WordPress dashboard. Here are the following plugins you will need for the Caroline theme:

  1. Jetpack – This plugin is used for creating galleries, showing social media icons, and much more. It’s a great plugin to have. You will need a WordPress.com account if you don’t already have one. Don’t worry- it’s free!
  2. WordPress Related Posts – We will use this plugin to show related posts at the bottom of every post.
