WordPress template installation

A template is a pre-made design for a website. It can be installed only with a CMS for which it has been developed. A CMS and a selected theme will be installed when you create a website.

Complete the following steps to install a website from a template:

  1. Go to Website → Create a website → From a template or click Create a website from template on the Dashboard. 
  2. Select a theme from the list:
    • you can set a filter by clicking All categories and select the themes you want to use;
    • click Apply to hide the templates you don't need. Click Clear to cancel the filter. 
    • enter the keywords or the name of WordPress theme in the Search field; 
    • click on Themes recommended by Vepp to see the most frequently used themes. This list includes the templates that were downloaded most often.  
  3. Move your mouse cursor over the template and click Details for more information about the selected theme.
  4. Click Demo to open a demo version of the template in a new browser window. 
  5. Click Select to create a new website from the selected template. 
  6. Select a website Domain. If you haven't bought a domain yet, enter any name. The system will create a technical domain automatically and assign it to your website. 
  7. Enter a Directory on the server with Vepp where the website files will be located. 
  8. Click Create a website. Vepp will configure the web server, create a website directory, an FTP-user, databases, and will install a CMS. Clicking on Hide will hide the creation status bar. The installation process will run in the background.
  9. If you don't hide the website creation window, Vepp will offer two actions upon completion:
    • Go to WordPress  — open to the CMS;
    • Open website in browser — open the website in a new browser window. 
    • Set up the website in Vepp — open the website parameters page. 
  10. If you have specified the valid domain name check that it is assigned to the website. Learn more under How to assign a domain to a website
