Your Guide to Installing a WordPress Theme from RocketTheme
There are two primary methods used to install a theme by RocketTheme. You can download the theme files and associated plugins to install them on an existing site, or opt to go with RocketLauncher.
What makes RocketLauncher an appealing solution is that it includes everything you need to hit the ground running with your site. It comes complete with WordPress, a quick and easy database setup method, associated plugins, and plenty of pre-written content to help you get started with your site. The Rocketlauncher will replicate the demo as seen on the Rockettheme site, so you are ready to go after just a few clicks.
Whichever way you decide to go, RocketTheme is dedicated to making sure its products are easily updated and capable of running on all of the most common server solutions.
Gantry-powered themes require the Gantry framework in order to run on your site. This plugin is available via the same download page as the theme, and should be installed and activated prior to installing the theme. You can find more detailed instructions on installing the Gantry framework here.
Installing the theme by way of the theme files and associated plugins is the most common way to get it on your site if you have existing content and widgets you wish to preserve. You can download all the files listed below by visiting the theme's primary download page.
To install the theme powered by Gantry, you need two files:
Please note that the Gantry plugin needs to be installed first and activated (does not apply to RocketLauncher).
There are other files that you may wish to download that accompany the release, but are not required for the theme to work.
RocketLauncher includes a FULL WordPress install, in addition to the theme and demo contents. The WordPress installation process is necessary in creating the demo content, therefore RocketLauncher will only work properly as a new WordPress installation. It can not be used on an existing WordPress installation.
