We’ve been tossing this idea around for awhile now and after someone asked me to do some more videos, I figured why not start a daily series of short little screencast tutorials that help you get started or help you with a specific task. This isn’t going to replace our Screencast Tuesday series, I’ve been doing, or our other blogging. These will just be some quick posts with links to our documentation to help you out with more information that just the blog post. To get started this post is going to cover installing Headway Themes and upgrading Headway Themes.
Installing Headway Themes
The first thing you need to do to start using Headway Themes is to install Headway Themes. As simple as that sounds, for some people it may be a little difficult. So today we’re going to look at installing Headway Base so that you get started with Headway.
- Download Headway Themes Base from our Member’s Dashboard.
- Take the headway-XXX.zip (XXX stands for the current version number).
- Login to your WordPress Dashboard, click on Appearance > Themes > Install Themes.
- Click the Upload option and choose your file.
- When Headway’s uploaded, click the Activate button.
To get a little more help with installing Headway, we’ve created this video for you to get started. As an added bonus we’ll go through a little bit of the Visual Editor and create our first layout so that you’ve got something to look at on the front-end of your site.
Upgrading Headway Themes
Upgrading Headway Themes is actually pretty simple. When you login to your WordPress Dashboard and you get a notice that tells you there’s an updated version, all you have to do is click the ‘Click here to update’ link in the notice and follow the onscreen instructions. Here’s also a quick video to help you upgrade.
