Plugin Installation:


The wizard will prompt you to install and activate any required plugins for the AtomUnity WP Community Theme. These plugins are essential for the theme's full functionality.





Demo Content Import:


The wizard WILL offer the option to import demo content. Importing demo content can help you get started quickly by populating your website with sample data, including pages, posts, and images, to mimic the theme's demo site.







Once you've completed the setup wizard, your theme will be ready to use and will closely resemble the demo site.






Activating AtomChat

What is AtomChat?


AtomChat is the easiest way to add text chat and video calling for end-users of your website to chat with each other! You can add a layer of communication for your members to share and collaborate!


If you do not have an AtomChat subscription, this is optional and can be done later. 




Test Your Website


After completing the setup wizard, navigate to your website's front end (the public-facing part of your site) to ensure that the theme is displaying correctly.






That's it! You have successfully installed and activated the AtomUnity WP Community Theme on your WordPress website!


On the Themes page, you'll see the theme you just activated listed as the "Active" theme.
