  • 1. I’ve unzipped jevelin theme zip file which I’ve downloaded from the ThemeForest.

     

    Now I have two different zip files: jevelin.zip and jevelin-child.zip which one should I upload to my WordPress site?

     

    If jevelin.zip is the main theme, what is the purpose of the jevelin-child.zip? I’ve tried to find any documentation regarding this file but it seems I can’t find it anyway.

    2.  Another question regarding woocommerce is it possible not to install it at all, I mean will it break anything if I don’t install it at all?

    Hi @Konrud,

     

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your questions.

     

    Now I have two different zip files: jevelin.zip and jevelin-child.zip which one should I upload to my WordPress site?

    Both. First install jevelin.zip and then jevelin-child.zip

     

    If jevelin.zip is the main theme, what is the purpose of the jevelin-child.zip?

    The jevelin-child.zip is a child theme of main jevelin.zip theme.

    WooCommerce is a free eCommerce plugin that allows you to sell anything on your site so if you don’t want to sell anything on your site then just don’t use it.

    1.When I install the jevelin-child theme, should I apply it or only install it?

    2.If I do need to apply it will it change my settings/colors/css?

    3.If I need to change something (for example 404 page) what I need to do in that case?
