Aspicio theme is an e-commerce theme. You can build unique landing page using predefined patterns. Theme can be used for the personal presentations as well, company website, and other general purposes. Learn how you can get the most out of the theme with the Aspicio WordPress theme documentation.

Aspicio WordPress theme documentation, step 1: Theme installation

The theme can be installed through the WordPress Admin panel.

  1. Log in to the WordPress admin panel.
  2. Go to Appearance -> Themes.
  3. Click on the Add New button, at the top of the screen.
  4. In the Add Themes screen, click on Upload Theme.
  5. Click on Choose theme, and then browse for theme file on your computer.
  6. Click on Install Now to start the installation.
  7. After the installation is done, click on Activate theme.

A detailed video of theme installation is available here.

Note: If you get the error message “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” please unpack the zip file that you have downloaded, and inside the unpacked zip file you will find two more files – a parent and child theme. Install parent theme first, and then child theme. Activate the child theme when the installation is done.

After activating the theme, you will be prompted to install the required plugins. Required plugins are in the Aspicio WordPress theme documentation:

  1. Jetpack
  2. WooCommerce

Jetpack plugin setup

Jetpack plugin is a required plugin. After installing the plugin, you will need to connect it with your site. When you click the Set up Jetpack button, you will need to log in to your WordPress.com account, or you’ll have to create a free Jetpack account. The official article that explains how to set up the Jetpack plugin is available here.

Aspicio WordPress theme documentation, step 2: Theme defined patterns

Aspicio WordPress theme documentation, step 3: How we built our demo

Before building homepage, it’s suggested to create your products, product categories, posts and post categories.

First, we have created the following pages of the Aspicio WordPress theme documentation:

  1. Home
  2. About
  3. Blog
  4. Contact Us

WooCommerce plugin will create necessary pages – Shop, Cart, Checkout, My Account, Privacy Policy. These pages are not editable, except for Privacy Policy where you should put your text.

Homepage

The homepage is built using several patterns and blocks. The following are instructions on how to build the same homepage as shown in our demo. With little bit planning, you can build a homepage that will fully suit your needs, with more product categories, blog posts, etc.

The homepage in the Aspicio WordPress theme documentation is built from several sections. We will explain each section.

  1. Insert Header pattern 4. Replace the text and image with your own, and set desired colors for the block background and text.
  2. Second block is heading, where we added two spacer elements above and under it.
  3. In the next section, you need to insert a columns block. Set block width to Wide Width, and set the number of columns to 5. Make sure to set columns 1,3 and 5 widths to 30%, while columns 2 and 4 should have a width of 5%. In columns 1,3 and 5 insert the image and heading under the image. The images that we used in our demo were prepared in Photoshop(rounded top).
  4. For the best sellers section, insert a full-width group block, and set the background color. Insert header and text, and under them insert Handpicked products block from WooCommerce.
  5. Final section contains a hand-picked product, so you will need to use Header pattern 4, and link it to the desired product.

About

About page should present a short story about the brand. For building About page we have used:

  1. Heading element
  2. Header pattern 3 element
  3. About section in two columns pattern
  4. Header pattern 2

Blog

The Blog page is the page where all posts are displayed. There are no elements on this page. This page is using a template Index.

Contact US

Contact Us page contains Contact pattern 1 with image that is inserted under it.

Aspicio WordPress theme documentation, step 4: Working with theme templates

With the new WordPress feature – Full Site Editing – tech-savvy users can easily tweak theme templates using Gutenberg editor, instead of messing with the theme code.

In Bonum theme, only header and footer templates can be tweaked. To start working with theme parts, in WordPress admin panel go to Appearance -> Template Parts. Click on the part that you wish to customize.

Here are example videos on how to perform simple changes in templates.

Aspicio WordPress theme documentation, step 5: Useful CSS classes

Bonum theme is coming with pre-defined CSS classees that can animate elements on posts and pages.

Here is a list of those classes:

  • h-animate–from-top: element will have fly-in from the top animation.
  • h-animate–from-left: element will have fly-in from the left animation.
  • h-animate–from-right: element will have fly-in from the right animation.
  • h-animate–from-bottom: element will have fly-in from the bottom animation.
  • -desktop-only – element will appear on desktop devices only.
  • l-touch-only – element will appear on devices with touch screen.
  • l-above-mobile-only – element will appear on all devices that are not mobile.
  • l-mobile-only – element will appear on mobile devices only.
  • l-center-margin-auto – element will get left and right margin, so it becomes centered.
  • l-no-margin-top – removes top margin.
  • l-no-margin-bottom – removes bottom margin.
  • background-color–transparent – sets transparent background for the element.
  • padding–horizontal-default – sets left and right padding:50px for all devices, except for mobile devices. For mobile devices padding is set to 30px.
