Installation

Installing our travel WordPress™ Themes is simple.

  1. We assume you already have a hosting account setup. If you do not have website hosting, we recommend an inexpensive hosting company like BlueHost, as they make it very easy to Install WordPress on your domain. Setup your hosting, and install WordPress as per their directions, then continue to the next step…
  2. Download one of our theme .zip files from here.
  3. Open your WordPress Administration area (e.g. go to http://yoursite/wp-admin in your browser window)
  4. Go To APPEARANCE > THEMES
  5. Click on the INSTALL THEMES tab
  6. Click “Upload” and upload the .zip file you downloaded
  7. Click “Activate” to make the theme active

Once the theme is active, your home page should display the default configuration when you look at it in a browser.  Now you are ready to setup and configure the theme.

    I want to install this theme, but I swear there is NO tab that says Install Theme. I’m new to wordpress…any help would be appreciated! :)

    • admin says:

      the tab is at the very top of the page on the left. Also make sure you are using the latest version of wordpress.

      Hope this helps

    I too would like to install this theme but I do not see a tab that says Install Theme. I’m looking all over and definitely do not see this tab at the very top on the left… or anywhere else for that matter. I’m on latest version of wordpress.

      Sandra,

      If you visit this page, http://www.freetravelwebsitetemplates.com/download/ under “Travel Blogger – Version 1.3.5 – Released: 08/11/2011″ You will see an area to click on that says, “>>>>>> DOWNLOAD TRAVELBLOGGER.ZIP (696k) < <<<<<<” Click on this and the latest version of the theme should download. Thank you for contacting us, sorry if that was confusing.

    If I am using Vistaprint to host my site, is there anyway to use your templates?

    • admin says:

      If you are using Vistaprint as a site host, but have uploaded WordPress to manage your site building and settings then you can use our templates. From a little research I have done online, it seems to me like you have used Vistaprint to also build your website, not just register it, so it may be a little complicated getting WordPress installed onto your site. I would call Vistaprint customer service to ask more questions. Here is a useful link I found about someone wanting to switch their site from Vistaprint to WordPress.

      Here it is: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/transferring-url-from-vistaprint-to-wordpress

      I hope that this helps. Please contact us again if you need anything else.

      Deborah,

      Are you still having this issue? We came up with an updated version of the theme around December of 2012. Please let us know if this is still a problem?

    i had just installed this theme & its working fine with me.. is there any option for banner..? as i also wanted to use 4-5 images to b displayed as banner on my website..

    • admin says:

      Hi,

      If you go under Appearance > Theme Options and Layout, you should be able to configure the banner. If you wanted to install a plugin that you could use in conjunction with the theme to display photos, this is an option too, but you’d need to find a photo slider plugin through WordPress.org.

    I created a post and then selected the Feature Post on Home Page, but it is not showing. I read your information which made mention of turning this feature on or off. Where do I go to do this or is something else wrong? Thanks for a great theme!

    Rosalind

  9. Rosalind says:

    Found the problem. I had a static home page instead of showing posts. Great theme!

  10. Rosalind says:

    I spoke to soon. It shows on the preview but not on the actual site after refresh. Any help appreciated!

    • admin says:

      Hey Rosalind,

      Is this still an issue? I see that you have created a what seems to be a static home page.

    I am trying this (greatly looking) theme, but I have an issue: there are several error lines between the social media bar and the rest of the web. They say:

    Warning: mysql_real_escape_string(): Access denied for user ”@’10.10.8.3′ (using password: NO) in /nfsmnt/hosting3_1/0/c/0ccb0103-61f0-4b90-ba4b-c98bb080d429/pesekpavel.cz/web/wp-content/themes/travel-blogger/lib/functions/components.php on line 190
    Warning: mysql_real_escape_string(): A link to the server could not be established in /nfsmnt/hosting3_1/0/c/0ccb0103-61f0-4b90-ba4b-c98bb080d429/pesekpavel.cz/web/wp-content/themes/travel-blogger/lib/functions/components.php on line 190

    And the same with the lines 191 and 192.
    The same issue shows at the comments column with each post at the blog, this time with line numbers 249, 250 and 251.

    I am using WordPress 3.9.1 and I have almost no experience with PHP or SQL, if you need more details.

    • admin says:

      Pavel,

      Unfortunately we are not able to support the theme like we would want to right now. I can’t help with developer and theme feature bugs that pop up. I apologize for the inconvenience. The issue that you are having may be due to the fact that the theme isn’t compatible with the latest version of WordPress.
