The following plugins are bits of software that extend the functionality of the theme and are included in the theme package. When you install the theme, you will get a notification message in your WordPress admin informing you about the required and recommended plugins. You have to install them. For those who are not familiar with plugin management, please check WordPress Codex > Managing Plugins reference
The theme will be regularly updated to keep up with WordPress updates. So if you get notified about an update, follow the instructions :
*theme_name.zip is used as an example; in real case the .zip file will be titled as the theme you purchased.
The first and most important step to update your theme is to BACKUP your site and Database. There are plenty of ways of doing that. You can start from here: WordPress Backups

Important note:. You can configure your blog options now on Theme Options > Content > Blog ( check Blog Options section below for further instructions ).
You can easily import Demo content using Plethora’s Demo Importer:
Go to Admin > Tools > Healthflex Demo Importer
Click on the Demo you like.
Make sure you have installed all the plugins required. Otherwise the Go To Import Panel button will not be active. If a plugin does not exist, a red colored title is used, while an orange color will be used instead if a plugin is installed but has not been activated.
On the import panel screen, click on Import Demo and relax while each item is imported. Import procedure might last several minutes, depending on the demo selected
When the Import Demo button turns green, the import is completed. Visit you site to see the Demo.
Note: if for some reason, you cannot use Demo Importer, you can import our primary demo using the XML/WIE files included in package. For the main content ( XML file ), you have to install the classic WordPress Importer, while for the widgets ( WIE file ) you have to use the Widget Importer & Exporter plugin
After you’ve downloaded HEALTHFLEX Theme, unzip the main zip file and you’ll find the following:
Now what? Follow the next steps to install HEALTHFLEX as a WordPress Theme.
* Note You should not upload the whole item you have downloaded from Themeforest because you will get an error of broken stylesheet file. Instead locate the healthflex.zip and healthflex-child.zip files found inside the main file you’ve downloaded.
Warning: while installing your theme through WordPress admin, you may encounter an error message saying : “are you sure that you want to do this?”. This is mainly due to your hosting php settings. HEALTHFLEX theme zip file is roughly around 6MB and in some hosting configurations the default limit for max upload is 2MB. To solve this problem you should either increase your maximum upload limit (at least to 8MB) on your hosting admin panel, or ask your host to do it for you. This is a common request and they should be able to assist you.
HEALTHFLEX comes with a child theme included in the theme package. Installing a Child Theme is almost the same as installing any other WordPress theme. The only difference is that you need both the parent theme, and the child theme uploaded to your WordPress theme directory. So, follow the steps described above once more, but now upload healthflex-child.zip instead.
We focus on using the latest web standards and practices regarding WordPress theme development.
We strongly recommend our customers to install the child theme in order to ensure hassle-free updates.
