General Guidelines

We wish to thank you for purchasing Brixel! We're incredibly pleased and overwhelmed that you have chosen Brixel for your website. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed! Here, we outline all types of necessary information, and provide you with all the essential details you require for using Brixel. Brixel can only be used with WordPress and we presume that you already have WordPress installed and ready to go.

Essential Requirements and Recommended Settings

Recommended Hosting

We recommend using a cPanel or Plesk based hosting from a renowned hosting service provider. Many low cost providers provide their custom web based panel which most of the time don’t have required configuration to run websites smoothly.

We recommend using Hostgator for any hosting related need. Order plain cPanel based hosting. Don't order just Wordpress Hosting from any hosting provider. Wordpress hosting has lots of limitation and you might not be able to accomplish everything.

Ideally cPanel, Plesk driven control panels works seamlessly. Also, make sure that your provider uses latest version of phpmyadmin. The older version of php and phpmyadmin might not support.

We can troubleshoot and help, if you use cPanel, Plesk, Webmin, web panel, zpanel types of control panel. Also, when you ask for our help, please consider to send control panel access. Only FTP access might not be sufficient always.

Requirements

To work with Brixel, please ensure that you are running WordPress 4.7 or higher, PHP 5.6 or higher, and MySQL 5.6 or higher. We have tested it with Mac, Windows and Linux.

Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

Various issues that you may run into are: white screen, your demo import fails, empty page content and other similar issues which are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The best way is to increase the PHP limits of hosting account.

  1. max_execution_time 300
  2. memory_limit 128M
  3. post_max_size 32M
  4. upload_max_filesize 32M

Edit PHP Configuration

Generally, there are two popular types of CPanel. You can change PHP configuration limits on your own, by follwing these steps. If you're using a CPanel which is different from these two types, then you need to contact your hosting provider to increse the above mentiond PHP configuration limits(especially 'upload_max_filesize' which should be 32MB).

Steps for the 1st type of CPanel:
  1. Login to your CPanel
  2. Click on 'Select PHP Version' under Software section.
  3. Click on 'Switch To PHP Options'.
  4. Now, change the PHP configuration limits as we have mentioned above and click on 'Save' button to save all. You can also change PHP version here.
Steps for the 2nd type of CPanel:
  1. Login to your CPanel
  2. Click on 'MultiPHP INI Editor' under Software section.
  3. Choose your domain from the dropdown, under 'Configure PHP INI basic settings'.
  4. Now, change the PHP configuration limits as we have mentioned above and click on 'Apply' button to save all.
You can change PHP version for this type of CPanel by following these steps:
  1. Login to your CPanel
  2. Click on 'MultiPHP Manager' under Software section.
  3. Choose your domain from the list.
  4. Now, select current PHP version from 'PHP Version' and click on 'Apply' button to save all.

Theme Installation & Setup

This video would help you to understand the whole installation and demo import process

1. Install WordPress

Download and go for Installing latest version. You may also use Softaculous or Quick Install WordPress, if your hosting cPanel supports this.

2. Upload Theme

If you have already downloaded the entire theme package, unzip it. Over there, you will notice the Theme Installation file (called like "brixel.zip") along with tutorial and license folder.

Alternatively, you can go ahead downloading the installable WordPress file.

For installing the theme in your WordPress Admin Panel (wp-admin), go to “Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme > Browse” and select the theme installation file.

Attention! If you're getting "Are you sure you want to do this? Please Try Again" error while uploading, then upload the theme zip file from CPanel to 'File Manager > public_html > wp-content > themes' and extract. Delete the zip file after extracting. Now, you can go the wp-admin and continue with the rest of the process.

Please keep in mind that quite a few hostings have restrictions on the size of a file that you want to upload. If any warning sign comes up, probably your hosting has a file size limit and the theme “.zip” file would be too large to upload via WordPress Panel. You can contact your hosting service provider and ask to enhance the restrictions (e.g 32MB will do).

Or else, you can install theme via FTP. Simply, go for unzipping the installable file and upload the theme folder via FTP on to “your_site/wp-content/themes/”.

Attention! Theme will function perfectly on a vast majority of flawlessly installed and configured WordPress sites without any additional settings. However, on few hosting configurations, you can see that images on your site are not uploading/displaying “Theme Returns Notifications” about certain CHMOD rules on “uploads” folder. If you are experiencing this issue, please follow these steps to fix it:

  1. Make sure that the theme installed is strictly to your_site/wp-content/themes/ folder.
  2. The folder “uploads” must be created here and it will look like“your_site/wp-content/uploads” On some hostings, you’ll need to set its CHMOD to 755, on others – to 777.
    If the above mentioned steps did not yield any results, please don’t hesitate to address this issue directly to your web hosting company. Since this is a server-related problem, we will not be able to help you!

3. Activate Theme

Navigate to “Appearance > Themes “ activate the Theme by clicking the correspondent “Activate” link.

Attention! To confirm that your permalinks are being rendered correctly (so that the website does not return “404 Not Found” error) follow “Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks” and click “Save Changes”after activating the theme.

4. Install Plugins

After you activate the theme, you'll come to a screen which will say to install required plugins. Please refer to screenshot below.

After activating the theme, you will see “recommended plugins” and “required plugins" notifications:

Click on the “Begin installing plugins” link for proceeding to install and activate those plugins. Please refer to below screenshot.

Begin Installing Plugin

After Plugin installation is complete, click on "Return to Required Plugins Installer". Screen would look like below screenshot.

Plugin Instalation Complete

On next screen, select all plugins as shown in screenshot and activate them. All these plugins are required to smooth functioning of the theme and to import demo-content.

Based on your server's configuration, it might take 60-120 seconds to activate all plugins. Once, activation is complete, you should see a screen like below.

Plugin License Activation

WPBakery Page Builder and Slider Revolution are LICENSED to be distributed with Brixel theme (Template Library is not included with this version of WPBakery Page Builder). So you DO NOT need to PURCHASE any separate license to activate them. We'll continue to provide updated and stable version of all required plugins for the life span of Brixel theme. You DO NOT need to purchase any supporting plugin which is part of the theme bundle.

You can ignore messages like this below.

Child Theme

A Child Theme is specifically for developers who are willing to make changes to the critical functions and codes. If you do not intend to go that far, you can always ignore this lesson or chapter.

IMPORTANT : If you want to edit the templates and functions of a theme, we always advise you to incorporate or install 'Child Theme' and make changes therein. To know more about the need and purpose of creating child theme, visit WordPress Codex on: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes.

In the theme package, you will see materials required for Child Theme. It’s found in the "brixel-child.zip" archive. You can install child theme in a similar way as you install main theme.

A handful of recommendations on how to use Child Theme:

In the child theme, almost all files from main theme can be replaced. It doesn’t concern or affect only .php-files with templates and basic logics, but also .js and .css files from respective files and folders with images, icons etc..

If you are thinking about changing some functions of the theme or adding new ones, you have to create file 'functions.php' in the "brixel-child" folder, and add all requisite functions into it. If our WordPress theme has functions with such names, they will be replaced by yours, if not – your functions will complete the logics of our theme.

IMPORTANT : If you are thinking of replacing some functions from other files (except functions.php), we highly recommend you, NOT to copy-paste respective files into the child theme, but instead create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be strictly implemented, so that while updating them, new functions from these files are available for use.

Pages

After selcting 'Header Style', You can change settings for that header from Theme Options(Heder > General). Settings for 2nd header coming from 'Header Nine Settings' and settings for 3rd header is coming from 'Header Ten Settings'.

Translation & WPML

Use .mo/.po files and Poedit software

For individuals who desire translation using files included in the theme, we suggest using the .mo/.po files. These files work in ‘buddies’ or pairs, so for every language, you must have 2 files with the same name but with a different extension name altogether. For example, if you wish to translate into French language, your files would be fr_FR.mo and fr_FR.po

To make edits on these files, you have to use Poedit which is an “easy to use” software. You only need to upload the files into Poedit, edit and upload them into the"languages" folder that are included or provided in the theme.

WPML

Brixel is stringently tested on all parameters, and is completely compatible with WPML plugin. If you desire a multilingual website, this is probably the best way to do so. However, if you wish to utilize this plugin, you must buy it first, and install it into your WordPress platform. The following links contain useful WPML plugin information.
