Theme Install and Activation

↑ Back to top

Theme Setup Wizard

↑ Back to top

Once activated, you will be redirected to the theme setup page.

You can find the Theme Setup Wizard under Appearance > Theme Setup in case you decide to return to the dashboard and continue with it later on.

1. Child Theme

A WordPress child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme called the parent theme. Child themes allow you to modify, or add to the functionality of that parent theme.

WordPress Theme Handbook: Child Themes

The setup wizard allows you to build and activate the child theme with no effort.

If you skipped the child theme step, you can manually install the child theme later on.

Just keep in mind that WordPress treats the child theme as a separate theme and hence the Customizer settings will be fresh while switching to the child theme. So, it would appear that you lost the changes you made in the Customizer. However, the settings remain fine in the parent theme’s settings.

You can manually redo the changes or you can use a Customizer import/export plugin to move all the customizer settings from the parent theme to the child theme.

2. Required Plugins

The WooCommerce plugin is required in order for Lumière to work. If the WooCommerce plugin is missing or is not active, theme features and demo import will not be complete.

If you skipped the required plugins step, you can manually install and activate WooCommerce. It can be installed through the WordPress admin dashboard or by uploading the plugin archive through FTP.

Installing WooCommerce through the WordPress admin dashboard

  1. Go to Plugins -> Add New.
  2. Search for “WooCommerce”.
  3. In the search results, click on Install Now.
  4. When the installation is done, click on Activate button.

3. Demo Import

The automatic importer will import posts, pages, products, widgets, menus and Customizer settings. This way it will recreate the minimal theme’s demo setup so you don’t need to start from scratch.

You can select the components you want to be imported from the Advanced list, so you don’t end up with undesired content.

Theme Update

↑ Back to top

Once you connect your site and WooCommerce.com account, you will receive update notifications in your WordPress dashboard as soon as they’re made available allowing you to update the theme with one click or set up automatic updates.

If you still need to manually update your theme, follow the details at Updating Your Theme.

Using Web Safe Fonts

Web-safe fonts are fonts that can adapt to any browser on any device. By using these types of fonts, web designers and developers ensure that the intended font will always display properly on a web page, even if these fonts aren’t installed on the user’s computer.

The following fonts are the best web safe fonts for HTML and CSS:

  • Arial (sans-serif)
  • Verdana (sans-serif)
  • Tahoma (sans-serif)
  • Trebuchet MS (sans-serif)
  • Times New Roman (serif)
  • Georgia (serif)
  • Garamond (serif)
  • Courier New (monospace)
  • Brush Script MT (cursive)

Using Google Fonts

Thanks to the Google Fonts library, we have access to a web repository of over 900 quality fonts ready to use. They’re free to use (even for commercial projects), pre-hosted (so they won’t take up your server’s resources), and downloadable (you can use them in print).

How to manually install Google Fonts on your WordPress website:

Step 1: Find the font you want to add to your website

To get started, browse the Google Fonts directory and choose the font you want to use on your WordPress website. If you already have a specific typeface, you can simply search for it using the search box in the right sidebar.

Once you know which font you’re going with, copy its name and return to your website’s Customizer settings.

2. Insert the Google Font’s name into the Base Font Family field

Make sure you use the exact name of the font as it is called in Google Fonts.

Publish your Customizer changes and visit your site. The selected Google Font should now load and apply into your pages.

Using Custom Fonts

In order to use a custom font, you need a plugin that helps you easily embed the custom fonts files (woff2, woff, ttf, svg, eot, otf) in your WordPress website. The Custom Fonts plugin or the Use Any Font plugin should do the trick. Once you successfully embedded the font files, all you need to do it change the font name under Appearance > Customize > Fonts > Base Font Family.
