Welcome to eLumine’s Installation & User Guide. Once you read all the sections given below, you can start using eLumine with a better perspective.

Installation Guide

We have sent you an email to your registered email id, with the download link for eLumine as well as a purchase receipt id. You have to Download the theme using the download link. eLumine will then be downloaded in a .zip file format in your system.

Now, open the dashboard of your website and go to the Appearance tab. Select ‘Themes’ and click on ‘Add New’. Now, you have to upload the .zip file of eLumine using the ‘Upload Theme’ button. Click on ‘Install Now’ and your theme will be installed in no time. As soon as eLumine is installed, you will see an ‘Activate’ option in the same page. You have to activate eLumine before using it.

Now, you have to enter the license key for eLumine. A new menu, ‘WisdmLabs License Options’ can be seen in the left hand side of your Dashboard menu. This menu is created as soon as you install and activate eLumine. Click on this menu and enter your purchased product license key. Now click on ‘Activate’. If the license is valid, an ‘Active’ status message will be displayed, else ‘Not Active’ will be displayed.

Upon entering a valid license key, and activating the license, you are now ready to use eLumine!

If you get an error message saying "FILE SIZE LIMIT EXCEEDED", there are two solutions to increase your file size limit. You could try either of the two:

Solution 1 :
Go to your WordPress root directory and locate .htaccess file

Add these lines at the end of the file (after # END WordPress) :
php_value memory_limit 256
php_value upload_max_filesize 64M
php_value post_max_size 64M
php_value max_execution_time 300
php_value max_input_time 1000

Save .htaccess file and upload to server.
Check if it works now. If not, follow solution 2:

Solution 2 :
Edit your php.ini file and insert these values :
memory_limit = 256M
upload_max_size = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 64M
max_execution_time = 300
max_input_time = 1000

Now check if it works. It not, contact your hosting provider and tell them to set these values :
memory_limit = 256M
upload_max_size = 64M
post_max_size = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 64M
max_execution_time = 300
max_input_time = 1000

Once you make the changes mentioned above, you can simply install eLumine with the process discussed earlier.

Unyson Framework

The Unyson framework is a prerequisite for eLumine.

eLumine uses the Unyson framework for building pages, backup as well as demo content. To use these features, you have to download and activate these extensions from Unyson Settings(by clicking on Unyson menu as seen on your Dashboard).

Let us start with building a page. We have the Unyson framework for building pages and more.

Let us start with building a page.

The Unyson Page builder is a powerful tool for building pages. There are 3 tabs for different elements for your page: Layout, Content and Media.

Select your desired number of columns for each part of your page and add as many elements as you want. You can also add a whole section and add columns inside the sections.

The Content tab contains elements like Accordion, Button, Icon Box, etc. These elements help you design a beautiful, responsive page with your desired functionality.

You can also add media like images and videos from the media elements tab.

Templates are a useful way to save your page and use it like a template for further pages.
