Alizee pro

Thank you for purchasing Alizee Pro.

The ease of setup was one of the main focues of this theme, so you shouldn’t have any problems getting your site up and running in no time.

Let’s see how you should setup some of the custom features of Alizee Pro.

Contents

  1. Recommended plugins
  2. General settings
  3. Layout
  4. Slider
  5. Single posts/pages
  6. Post colors
  7. Post formats
  8. Page templates
  9. Fonts

1. Recommended plugins

  • The Custom Fields Suite plugin is needed only if you want to use post formats on your blog. Install it and and go to Field Groups > Tools > Import tab and paste the code found here.
  • Regenerate Thumbnails – you should also install and run this plugin to regenerate your thumbnails.

2. General settings

The general settings tab can be reached at Customizer > General. It provides some options to add your custom logo, your custom favicon or simply disable the custom scroller.

3. Layout

Take control of your layout using the Customizer > Layout tab. Simply choose the desired number of columns you want for your grid of posts, or choose one column to disable the grid completely. Alizee Pro also brings an option that you cannot find in the free version, which is a checkbox that enables the same layout from the home page on categories, archives, tags etc.

4. Slider

The Slider is another addition that the pro version of Alizee brings to you. It can be used to display posts in style from a category that you choose. The slider options are found at Customizer > Slider. You’ll find options to activate the slider, set the maximum number of posts to be displayed, set the slideshow speed and set the animation speed.

5. Single posts/pages

This tab can be found at Customizer > Single posts/pages. Three options are available here:

  1. featured images on posts: activate it to show your featured images on single posts;
  2. featured images on pages: activate it to show your featured images on pages;
  3. author bio: activate it to display your author bio. Make sure you set up a description of yourself and some social links from your dashboard at Users > Your profile.

6. Post colors

If you like colors, Alizee Pro is the theme for you. Go to Customizer > Post Colors and activate the option found there. You index and archives posts will automatically get a scheme of six colors. You can change the color scheme from the same tab to whatever set of colors you feel that will be most fitted for your blog.

7. Post formats

In order to display post formats on your pages, you need to use the Custom Fields Suite plugin, which was mentioned in the first chapter of this guide. Import the data provided and start creating posts with the format you want. Choose a format and save your post and you`ll notice that some custom fields will show up in the post editor screen. Fill them up and you’re ready to go.

8. Page templates

Alizee Pro provides three page templates that you can use to add an extra bit of style to your blog: Full Width, About me and Instagram. The first two are pretty straightforward, so we`re going to describe just the Instagram page template.

This is how you would set up your Instagram page:

  • Create a new page and choose the Instagram page template. Give it a title and leave the content blank, you don`t need to add anything in the editor.
  • Visit this link to authorize the app for Instagram. You`ll notice that a userID and an accesToken show up.
  • Go to Customizer > Instagram, check the box to activate Instagram and fill in the fields found there with the userID and accesToken you got at the previous step.
  • That’s it! Enjoy a page that displays your latest photos from Instagram.

9. Fonts

Alizee Pro takes the font list a bit further than the one included in the free version of this theme, and lets you choose between 100 of the fonts that Google has to offer. You can find this setting at Customizer > Fonts.

If there is something that you would like to do with Alizee Pro but it`s not covered in this short guide, feel free to ask on the forums.

  1. Hello! Alizee is by far the best theme I have ever used on WordPress. I did have a few questions before I purchase the Pro version though…

    1st – I am having a problem with Disqus not showing up on individual posts. I don’t get the loading error its just not showing up at all. Does this theme fully support Disqus?

    2nd – I’ve noticed my scroll wheel getting stuck while scrolling through my homepage on my desktop. Have you ever had this issue?

    3rd – When rendered on a mobile device I’m not seeing the footer widgets. Is this normal?

    Once again thank you so much for the theme! I spent days scouring the internet for the perfect responsive/parallax look and I think I found it!

    Can’t wait to get this project underway!

    1. Hello,

      Thank you for your comments.

      1. I see that you got Disqus to work.
      2. I do notice this issue on your website. Unfortunately, I’m not sure what it’s related to, there is probably a conflict with a plugin. It’s working without issues and we’ve used it on many themes.
      3. Yeap, it’s normal. Widgets are hidden on smaller screens but that behaviour can easily be changed via CSS.

      Regards,
      Vlad

  2. Hello Vlad,

    I am currently searching for a template to use on a new site (not yet online) and I’m considering to use Alizee Pro.
    My questions are:
    1.: Is it possible to create a child-theme, if needed? It doesn’t seem like we will need one, but it happened on a lot of other projects, too, so I like to make sure before.
    2.: Is there an option to disable the footer text “Proudly powered by WordPress | Theme: Alizee by aThemes” within the theme settings?
    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,
    Ben

    1. Hello,

      1. Sure, you can build a child theme if you need one. Or you can use just a custom CSS plugin if you’re not interested in PHP changes.
      2. There’s no option for that at the moment, but we can add it in an update.

  3. Hello, I’m intrigued by Alizee Pro and giving it a good consideration. I have a couple quick questions at this time:

    1. Is there an easy way to remove your theme name/copyright from the footer?

    2. Will Alizee Pro support e-commerce?

    Thank you and yes, I am a beginner at this!

  4. When I put a photo in to a post it is much too close to the writing and I do not know how to change this. I’m not a developer so I need very very simple instructions. Thanks.

  5. We were running our site on alizee, and we just upgraded to alizee pro. But none of the db settings carried over to alizee pro when I activated that theme. How do I seamlessly switch from alizee to alizee pro from within wordpress?

    1. To clarify, when I switch to alizee pro in the wordpress dashboard (appearance-themes), it reverts to an empty template, and all the changes I’ve saved in alizee do not appear.

    2. Hi Glenn,

      Thanks for purchasing the pro version. As Alizee Pro is a different theme, you will lose your Customizer settings. Everything else should be the same though. Please open a topic on the forum if you need more help.
