1.1. About the theme

"OneLife" is a WordPress theme for cosmetic & plastic surgeons who offer beauty treatments using microsurgical techniques.

Surgeons who perform operations such as implants and transplants, augmentation and reduction, skin treatments, body contouring, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and other varieties of cosmetic and plastic surgeries, can use this theme to display all their services to their prospective clients.

It is a well researched theme to fit perfect for cosmetic surgery clinics, designed with the motive to help your clients easily browse all the information regarding your services.

The Visual Composer can provide awesome customization, due to its drag and drop capabilities. Just like its name suggests, you only need to select an element and drop it in place. You can choose between several background options and fonts, and you may also change the entire color scheme of the site.

Video tutorials were implemented in order to guide you through the customization process. In addition, a detailed documentation source offers to explain every theme feature. With a single mouse click, you will gain access to some incredible demo content. This can hasten the setup phase, and provide a useful template for further customization.

1.3 WordPress Information

To use this theme you must have Wordpress engine installed. We assume you have a working version of WordPress already up and running. If not you can check this great video by Woothemes guiding you through the process of Wordpress installation.

We also encourage you to actively use the links below. These useful resources cover most of general WordPress questions you may have:

  • Wordpress FAQ - Information and resources about WordPress including history, features, semantics, glossary, and information to help you determine whether or not WordPress is the blogging tool for you.
  • Wordpress Lessons - Great source of knowledge for WordPress beginners
  • PHP Function References - Detailed information on WordPress PHP functions and usage examples


1.4 Theme Requirements

We have tested our theme in most standard hosting setups. Anyhow, make sure your hosting server matches the following requirements.

  1. Latest version of WordPress 4.7 or higher installed,
  2. PHP5 or higher and MySQL 5 or higher,
  3. We recommend to enable mod_rewrite module (If not enabled sometimes pages or posts will result in bad gateway error),
  4. Memory limit(memory_limit) should be atleast 128MB,
  5. Maxium File Upload size(upload_max_filesize) should be atleast 64MB.

Hosting is more secure when PHP applications, like WordPress, are running using your account’s username instead of the server’s default shared username (www or www-data). The most common way for hosting companies to do this is using PHP. Just ask your potential host if they run PHP or something similar.

Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

Many issues that you may run into such as: white screen, demo content fails when importing, empty page content and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a vivaghmum as follows:

  • Max_execution_time 600
  • Memory_limit 128M
  • Post_max_size 64M
  • Upload_max_filesize 64M

When you first install any WordPress theme, it will not contain all the extra content that you might have seen in the live (demo) site. There are two ways you can import the OneLife Demo Content; the entire demo with all the settings through our Theme Options Importer, or importing only individual pages. Usually you have to import an XML file, which can be troublesome. We've made it easier by creating a Theme Options Demo Content Importer.

15. More Options


15.1 Child themes

Why use a Child theme?

Safe Updates. You can easily modify your website using child themes without ever changing the parent theme. When a new version of the parent theme appears, you can safely update it as all your modifications are saved in the child theme.

Easy to Extend. A child theme has a great flexibility. It does not require writing a lot of code. You can modify only those template files and functions that you need.

Note : When you install one of our themes you must upload both parent and child theme folders to wp-content / themes but you should only activate the Child theme via Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes.

Modifying files from the Parent theme folder

While you should never edit files in your Parent theme, if you really must, the safest way to do it is to download a copy of the file you want to modify on your computer, make the changes, and then upload it into your child theme folder.

Note : This way of modifying the files can be used for any files from the parent theme — note that you must re-create the same folder structure in your child theme that exist in the parent theme in order for the modifications to take effect.


15.2 Demo Content Fails: Seems Like An Error Has Occurred

If you attempted to import the OneLife theme sample demo data, but it never completes the installation process or it fails with errors, there could be several reasons. Please read the following information.

Likely Causes For Demo Import Failing

  • Your PHP memory, file upload size, and/or execution limits are set too low
  • Your web host uses process watching software that prevents bulk processing on their web servers.
  • You have define('WP_DEBUG', true), please change that to define('WP_DEBUG', true) for the import in your wp-config.php file
  • The import uses a JSON file which is loaded from the frontend of the website, this will not work when the domain is not connected to the WordPress installation.

Recommended PHP Configuration Limits

If the import stalls and fails to respond after a few minutes, or it fails with a simple error message like "Import failed," You are suffering from PHP configuration limits that are set too low to complete the process. You should contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows:

  • max_execution_time 180
  • memory_limit 128M
  • post_max_size 32M
  • upload_max_filesize 32M

How To Verify Your Current PHP Limits

You can verify your PHP configuration limits by installing a simple plugin here. In addition, you can always contact your host and ask them what the current settings are and have them adjust them if needed. Please note though that many hosts will try to keep the PHP limits low without reason. However you are paying for it, and therefor should be getting your moneys worth.

Due to Envato's licensing rules, we can only issue updates for these plugins when we issue a theme update. Please continue reading below for further information on the process of how these updates are given.

Premium Sliders Update Process

When you purchase a theme that bundles Revolution Slider and Layer Slider, such as DT Themes, you get to use these Premium Sliders with the theme. However, your purchase of DT Themes does not give you an individual license for the Revolution Slider and Layer Slider to use or download as you wish.

Due to license rules, we can only issue new plugin updates when we issue new theme updates. So anytime DT Themes is updated, the latest plugin for the Revolution Slider and Layer Slider will be included. This is according to the licensing rules enforced by Envato, and is something out of our control and must abide by.

In addition, this also ensures that we fully test the plugin to make sure there are no critical bugs that will conflict with our own update. This is a benefit that we also test any version we give with our theme before our customers get it.
