Released early this year, DW Page is one of our unique responsive one page WordPress theme which has won many hearts. Our thanks to all the support and feedback we received from you all.

Through our support we realize that there are few repeated issues and questions (commonly about installation and some minor changes for DW Page). To make it easier for you and as well as others to follow up, we have made a list of frequently asked questions and solutions. Hope you will find it helpful.

Question 1: How to fix “The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet”?

Did you experience an error message: “The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet” when you try to upload or activate our WordPress theme? This issue is very common especially if you are new to WordPress themes.

The error message does not mean that the theme is broken, it simply means the theme has been uploaded in a wrong way. To fix the issue, here are the steps:

Step 1 Download the theme from your profile:

1. If you purchase the theme in Creative Market:

Download the full package from your profile

blog-dw-page-faq-3

Unzip the file, you will have 3 files as following: Quickstart, Theme and README:

blog-dw-page-faq-9

2. If you purchase the theme directly from our site:

In your Profile, you can choose to download Quick-start or Themes file. In this case, please download the DW Page 1.0.2 Themes file:

Unzip the DW Page 1.0.2 Themes file, you will have different themes file as following:

Step 2 Open WordPress Admin: go to Appearance > Themes > Install Themes and upload one of the theme zip file that you want to install. For example I want to install “dw-page-modern_1.0.2_theme.zip“:

dw-page-faq-10

Step 3 Click on “Install now” button.

Step 4 Click on the “Live Preview” link to preview the Theme or “Active” link to start using the Theme.

Question 2: How to install DW Page look like our demo site?

We include in DW Page package, like in any other theme, a “Quick-start” package which helps you to install a site with sample data, except for the images, like our demo site

Step 1 Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.

Step 2 Unzip “dw_page_modern_1.0.2_quickstart.zip” file and upload all the files inside to the desired location on your Local host or Hosting:

  • If you want to integrate WordPress site into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), upload all the files into the root directory of your web server.
  • If you want to have your WordPress site installed in its own sub-directory on your web site (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), create the blog directory on your server and upload all the files to the sub-directory via FTP.
Note: If your FTP client has an option to convert files name to lowercase, make sure it is disabled.

Step 3 Run the WordPress installation process by accessing the following URL in a web browser:

  • If you install WordPress site in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/
  • If you install WordPress site in its own sub-directory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/

Step 4 Follow the whole process and your WordPress site is ready with sample data.

Question 3: How to change the logo in DW Page?

The fast and easy way is to change the logo file directly from here: wp-content/themes/dw-page/assets/img/logo.png. The fix size for the logo is 60 x 170px. In case you want to have a bigger logo image, you will need to alter the CSS. Here is the way how to do it:

Step 1 Go to Dashboard > Themes > Editor then select the style.css file

Step 2 Add the following code into the end of the file style.css:

 .navbar .brand {
    width: 200px !important;
    height: 60px !important;
}

blog-dw-page-faq-8

Note: We highly recommend that you should keep the height of the logo less than 60px, because a too high logo will affect the right side menu.

Question 4: How to change 3 icons on Introducing Section?

They are images only, and you can change it by replacing these images’ URLs with your own images/logos:

 /wp-content/themes/dw-page/assets/img/Icon-1.JPG
/wp-content/themes/dw-page/assets/img/Icon-2.JPG
/wp-content/themes/dw-page/assets/img/Icon-3.JPG

Question 5: How to remove the Hiring Now column in Team section?

In order to remove this column, here is the way:

Step 1 Go to Dashboard > Users > Hire

Step 2 Uncheck in the box “Turn on hiring“. Save the setting and all done

blog-dw-page-faq-11

Question 6: How to centralize Team members when I have < 3 members in Team section?

Step 1 Go to Dashboard > Themes > Editor then select the style.css file

Step 2 Add the following code into the end of the file style.css

 .personal {
    display: inline-block !important;
    float: none !important;
}

Other common questions:

Quick Question 1 Does this theme support multiple Portfolio or Team member section?

No! This theme only supports 1 Portfolio and 1 Team member Section only.

Quick Question 2 Does this theme supported a Blog?

No! We do not support a Blog page for this theme yet.

Quick Question 3 How to change the text: “Simplicity Isn’t Simple.” in Home Section?

Go to Dashboard > Pages, then Edit page with the name “Home” and edit the content inside.

Quick Question 4 Can I add a custom link into your Main Menu?

Currently DW Page theme does not support to have extra custom link on the Main Menu, but you can have custom link on Extra Menu.

Here is how you can do it:

Open functions.php in your theme file, line 241. Replace

 "return ( $item && 'page' == $post_type )"

By

 "return ( $item && 'page' )"

Basically that’s it. Have your own questions and issues? Please submit your questions on our Question & Answer page or drop us an email to help@designwall.com. We are here to help you!
