BigBrands Setup and General Information

Thank-you for buying my theme!

Live Demo

BigBrands is an advanced Wordpress theme with a variety of configuration options and features - please make sure you are using at least Wordpress version 2.8.5 and PHP 5. In order to get full use of this theme it is important to review this documentation in full. If you have any questions regarding configuring this theme after looking over these docs feel free to email me.

The setup guide contains detailed instructions on configuring this theme from a fresh install of Wordpress exactly as it is in the demo. Although your install will most likely have lots of data and require additional minor modifications this will give you an idea of how the theme works (ie custom fields, page templates, options, etc...). It may help to create a fresh install of Wordpress and follow along with the setup step by step. Also hover over the camera icons to get helper images in each section.

Javascript Used

If you need help making changes to any of the javascript please contact me

Customization

If you need to modify the layout or styling of this theme you can edit the CSS files used. Currently I am using the following CSS files:

Included is a fully sliced and multi-layerd PSD file for the theme. If you need to make any image style changes such as the logo or background images open up the PSD file, change the color, and save the image for web. More complex customizations will require editing theme files (ie index.php, archives.php, etc...) and if you feel comfortable doing so go right ahead - otherwise feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to quote you a service price.
