Online documentation


Before beginning the installation and configuring of your new theme, you must first have WordPress already installed on a server.

If you are struggling, here is a very detailed guide at Wordpress Codex that will walk you through every step.

Installing The Theme

Once you have setup a copy of WordPress, there are two ways you can go about installing the theme:

  1. FTP Upload

    Unzip the downloaded package and upload the theme directory /glorio/ into your WordPress themes directory /wp-content/themes/.

  2. WordPress Automatic Installation

    This is definitely the easier route for most. Simply navigate to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme. Click the 'browse' button and locate the still zipped theme folder. The theme will be uploaded and installed in a matter of seconds.

    Then you need to activate installed theme.

    Click Activate or go in admin left menu: Appearance -> Themes and activate Glorio Recording Studio

Once you have installed and activated our theme you will be prompted to install required and recommended plugins. Just click the link Begin installing plugins.

HTML Structure

Based on Bootstrap, a sleek, intuitive, and powerful front-end framework.

Bootstrap makes use of certain HTML elements and CSS properties that require the use of the HTML5 doctype. Include it at the beginning of all your projects.

		<!DOCTYPE html>
        <html lang="en">

The default Bootstrap grid system utilizes 12 columns.

For a simple two column layout, create a.rowand add the appropriate number of.col-lg-*columns. As this is a 12-column grid, each.col-lg-*spans a number of those 12 columns, and should always add up to 12 for each row (or the number of columns in the parent).

		<div class="row">
		  	<div class="col-lg-4">...</div>
		  	<div class="col-lg-8">...</div>

Given this example, we have .col-lg-4 and .col-lg-8, making for 12 total columns and a complete row.

Move columns to the right using.col-lg-offset-*classes. Each class increases the left margin of a column by a whole column. For example,.col-lg-offset-4moves.col-lg-4over four columns.

		<div class="row">
            <div class="col-lg-4">...</div>
            <div class="col-lg-4 col-lg-offset-2">...</div>

Tell WordPress which language file to use.

If you don’t use WordPress in your native language so far, you have to tell WordPress which language to use to activate the theme translation.

You can do this by editing the wp-config.php file (the file is located in the main directory of your WordPress files) and defining the WPLANG constant. You have to set your language code there, for example fr_FR for French translation.

Just add the line below to your wp-config.php or change it if it already exists:

define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');

First Method: Using Codestyling Plugin

The easiest way to translate your theme locally is by using the Codestyling Localization plugin. After you have installed and activated the plugin, simply go to Tools > Localization (shown in your language) and translate the theme from your WordPress backend following the plugin instructions

Second Mothod: Using Poedit

Poedit is a common program which you can use to translate the theme. It’s available for free on After you have installed Poedit, you can open it and select File > New Catalog from POT file. Then select the .pot file from the theme you wish to translate which you can find in the /languages/ folder of theme. Then go through every line of text and translate it to your native language. Afterwards you can save the catalog with your language code (for example es_ES.po). Normally Poedit automatically creates the .mo file and saves it, too. The last step you have to do is to upload your created language files to the language folder of your theme using FTP.
