Fortuna - Premium Wordpress Template

Fortuna Documentation

Welcome to Fortuna Documentation

Thank you for purchasing Fortuna Wordpress Theme! In this document you will find the latest information on how to install, manage and update your theme, as well as create content, install plugins, import Demo data etc. If you like our theme and want to support us please rate it in your Downloads section.

Theme Installation

Once you purchase Fortuna from Themeforest, you can download the theme package. After you UnZIP the package you will find the theme file in it - fortuna.zip. There are 2 ways to install your theme, both are described step by step below.

Installation via Wordpress

Step 1 - Login to your Wordpress Dashboard
Step 2 - Go to Appearance > Themes. Click the Add New button or Add new theme link. (check screenshot below)
Step 3 - Click on the Upload Theme button. Locate "fortuna.zip" and click Install Now.
Some webservers have a limitation for the maximum allowed size of files being uploaded to them and that value may be exceeded by the theme file. If that is the case you can receive an error that states: The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini. or Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again. If you get any of these errors please increase the values of upload_max_filesize and post_max_size directives in your php.ini file to 20M or follow the Installation via FTP section described below.
Step 4 - Click on the Activate button to activate Fortuna. Congratulations, you have now activated Fortuna! You can now proceed with Fortuna's Plugin Installation.

Installation via FTP

Step 1 - Log into your Hosting server using an FTP client (like FileZilla or WinSCP).
Step 2 - Locate "fortuna.zip" that you found in your ThemeForest Package and unzip it somewhere on your hard drive. Once it is unzipped it will look like a folder named Fortuna with all theme files in it.
Step 3 - Locate your Wordpress installation and upload the theme directory Fortuna (you unzipped in the previous step) into ../wp-content/themes/ in your Wordpress installation.
Step 4 - Click on the Activate button to activate Fortuna. Congratulations, you have now activated Fortuna! You can now proceed with Fortuna's Plugin Installation.

Migration from another theme

If you are migrating from a different theme you need to make sure you resize the previously uploaded images in order to be able to reuse them with Fortuna. Luckily you have a great tool for this - a plugin that does it automatically for you - install Regenerate Thumbnails plugin and run the resizing procedure.

Plugin Installation

Once your theme is installed you will get a prompt at the top of your Dashboard that will ask you to install Fortuna's plugins. The Theme requires only Fortuna Portfolio CPT and WPBakery Visual Composer plugins in order to operate, but it recommends the installation of Parallax & Video Backgrounds for Visual Composer, Revolution Slider, Contact Form 7, Really Simple CAPTCHA, Custom Post Template plugin and WordPress Importer as well. Read more on the separate plugins in the Plugins section.
Step 1 - Click on the Begin Installing Plugins links
Step 2 - Select all plugins that you wish to install (Selecting all of them is recommended).
Step 3 - Change Bulk Actions drop to Install then click Apply in order to install the selected Plugins.
Step 4 - Make sure all required plugins are installed and Active so you can move on to importing Demo data or create your own pages/menu as well as setup your Theme, Menus, Widgets etc.

Demo Content Import

Once you have installed all theme Plugins you can import the Fortuna Demo Content.
Step 1 - Go to Tools > Import in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Click on Wordpress then Choose file and locate within the Fortuna package you unzipped: DemoData/fortuna.wordpress.2015-**-**.xml. Click Upload and Import.
Step 3 - Click on the drop down next to "or assign posts to an existing user" and select admin user in order to assign the imported data to your user then check the checkbox below Import Attachments and click on Submit. Importing the Demo Data along with all theme images may take awhile depending on your hosting provider, server load & location (up to several minutes) so please be patient and wait until the process finishes.
Step 4 - Done! Let's continue with setting your: Menu, Logo, Widgets, Homepage & Theme Options.

Importing Other Demo data

For info on Importing your Theme options check the next section (Theme Options Import), for importing your Demo Revolution Sliders go to Revolution Slider Section.

Errors on import

You should run the importer only once. Should any errors occur during the import you need to reset your WordPress before you run it again. Use this plugin to reset the WordPress database. You can also remove your imported files as a second import will duplicate those, go to your \wp-content\uploads folder and delete all subfolders created in there.

Troubleshooting

If you are using a Shared Hosting there's a good chance that your web-server resources have been limited by your hosting provider. As Fortuna's Demo is quite big, plenty of pages, posts, portfolio items & images your Import may fail due to your server limitations. Most commonly these are: max_execution_time (a directive used to limit script execution duration) and memory_limit (a directive used to limit memory for your hosting account). If you are working on a localhost environment increasing those directive limits is easy - simply head over to your PHP.ini configuration file, find where those directives are located and increase them to for instance:
max_execution_time = 180
memory_limit = 256M
If working on a hosting somewhere create a php.ini file in the root directory of your Wordpress installation and add them to it then try to run your import again.
If you'd rather stay away from your PHP.ini file you can add this code to your 'wp-config.php' file (found in the root of your WP installation) until you manage to import your data, it will also increase your max execution time and memory limits at runtime:
set_time_limit(180);
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '256M');
If none of those work and you are using a hosting somewhere you can always ask your hosting provider for a quick assistance with this via their Live Chat or Support Phone. It's your right to ask for these updates as you paid for their service and they usually react timely upon similar requests. My hosting provider usually replies within minutes and they increase the limit temporarily for me until I manage to run any long running scripts.

Theme Options Import

Once you have successfully imported your Demo Data you may decide to import the Demo Theme Options. These include all options that go under Fortuna Options in your Dashboard, like Logo, custom colors for your navigation, Header social icons, Footer icons, custom Sidebars etc.
Step 1 - Go to Fortuna Options > Import Options in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Copy the code below and Paste it in the Import > Theme Options field.

Step 3 - Click on Import Theme Options button.
Step 4 - Done! You can now go to your Fortuna Options and further customize the imported Theme Options.
You can also use the Export feature to export your Theme Options when working on a test environment for example and you want to migrate your Theme Options to another WP installation.

Widgets Import

Once you have successfully imported your Demo Theme Options you can also import the Demo Widgets. Please note that importing the Demo widgets requires prior import of Demo Theme Options as it imports 2 custom sidebars that accommodate a few widgets (Contact Sidebar & Shortcodes Sidebar).
Step 1 - Go to Plugins > Add New in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Find the "Widget Importer & Exporter" plugin via the "Search Plugins" field, install it and Activate it.
Step 3 - Go to Tools > Widget Importer & Exporter. Click on Choose File and locate the Demo Widget Export file within the Fortuna package you unzipped: DemoData/Widgets/fortuna_export-widgets.wie. Click Import Widgets and you are Done!

Logo Upload

Follow the steps below to upload your own logo to Fortuna Theme.
Step 1 - Go to Fortuna Options > Header > Main in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Click on Upload Logo Plus Button then upload your Logo Image file.
Step 3 - Uploading a Retina logo and favicon are optional but you can do so below the Upload Logo option - Upload Retina Logo and Upload a favicon image
Step 4 - If you are to use Transparent Headers on any of your pages like we do in the Demo you may want to upload a Transparent Header version of your logo. In the Demo we have uploaded a white logo so it is visible on dark backgrounds, you can upload that under Fortuna Options > Header > Transparent Header. You can also choose from a couple of Transparent Logo Transition Effects, we have Flip by default but you can also choose Fade.

Setting up your Menus

Your Menus are managed under the Appearance > Menus section. This is where you create/manage your custom menus and assign them to specific locations. Styling your main navigation takes place under Theme Options > Header and Appearance > Customize (read more on styling below).

Set Demo Data Menu

If you have imported the Demo Data and you want to see the Demo data menu as your Main Navigation all you need to do is assign the Fortuna Main Navigation to the Main Navigation Slot.
The default Demo Menu has been reduced to fewer items (mainly some menu items from the Megamenu dropdown have been removed) as otherwise the Menu becomes too big for regular webserver settings and upon saving some items get truncated. Scroll down and read more in the Problems when Saving section.
Step 1 - Go to Appearance > Menus and click on the Manage Locations tab.
Step 2 - Next to the Main Navigation slot select the Fortuna Main Navigation from the drop down and click Save Changes
Step 3 - Done! Go to your website frontend, you should now have the Demo Data menu assigned to your main navigation slot (in your header).

Create a Menu

If you want to create your own Menu then assign it to a specific location (Main Navigation or add it via a Widget to the Sidebar or Footer for example) you can follow these steps.
Step 1 - Go to Appearance > Menus and click on create a new menu.
Step 2 - Name your Menu and click on Create Menu. Then use the tool to the left to add items to your menu and save it.
Step 3 - Once you have created your menu you can assign it to a specific slot in the Manage Locations tab. By default only the Main Navigation area is available here.
If you want to add Menus to your Sidebars/Footers you can do so under Appearance > Widgets by adding a Menu widget to the widget area of your choice then selecting the specific menu you want to use there.

Style your Main Menu

Styling your main navigation takes place under Theme Options > Header and Appearance > Customize.
Step 1 - Go to Theme Options > Header > Main Navigation. You can edit big set of your menu navigation options here, they are rather self explanatory. You should feel free to experiment with them and come up with the best output result for you.
Step 2 - Go to Appearance > Customize. This is where you set your Main Menu style Preset and your Navigation accent color(used for top border of your submenus as well as Hover BGR color for the submenu items). This screen is used instead of the regular Theme options in order for you to preview the results of your selection realtime on your page (to the right of the screen).

Create MegaMenus

Creating MegaMenus is very similar to creating a regular multilevel menu, in fact all you need to do to create a MegaMenu from a regular menu is add a few classes to the top level Menu item. Let's explore the Fortuna Demo for example. We have a megamenu under the "Features" item. To achieve that we have added the CSS classes: "megamenu" and "mm-col-4" to that item.
Step 1 - Make sure the Screen Options > CSS Classes is checked so you can add CSS classes to your Menu items.
Step 2 - Add these classes to your top level menu item that will accommodate your Megamenu: megamenu mm-col-4. The class mm-col-4 forces the Megamenu to be split into 4 columns, if you want 2,3,5 or 6 columns add as follows: mm-col-2, mm-col-3, mm-col-5 or mm-col-6 instead.
Step 3 - Create one extra Menu item to parent each column menu items. For example in the example below we have a Megamenu under the Features top level item. We have the Mega Menu split into 3 columns (because of the mm-col-3 class) and we have 3 menu items (Shortcodes, Shrtcodes cont. & Features) below the top level item Features. Those 3 will appear as headings in the MegaMenu columns. If you want to hide the heading of a column you can do so by simply adding a mm_hide class to the column Parent item.

Adding Icons to Menu Items

Adding icons from the Theme Icons to your Menu items is pretty easy. All you need to do is add an extra i element to the label with classes: "icon" and the class of the icon you want to place, for example "icon icon-font". So for example the label for a Menu item "Navigation" with an icon in front would look like:
<i class="icon icon-font"></i>   Headings

Create a Single Page Menu

If you want to create a single Page Website like this example from the Demo you now can (since v1.04). It is very simple, all you need to do is create your Single Page Menu then set it as your Main Navigation. Creating Single Page Menu items is achieved by using Custom Links and anchoring them to specific sections on your page. Here's a comprehensive example below:
Step 1 - Go to Appearance > Menus and click on create a new menu.
Step 2 - Name your Menu and click on Create Menu. Then use the tool to the left to add items to your menu, you want to use Custom Link items. The idea is to anchor your menu items to specific page sections on your single page layout. So for example you would create an item with Link "URL to the Service page" + "#section_services" and Link Text "Service". Once you add it you should add the "smooth_scroll" parameter into the "Link Relationship (XFN)" field. If this field doesn't show by default you can turn it ON from Screen Options(in the Top right corner of your screen).
Your links should include the full path to the page + the targeted section anchor. For example: "http://mywebsite.com/page_name#section_services" so that they work correctly even if you are currently on a different Page.
Step 3 - Once you have created your menu item you need to link it to a specific section on your page so that once a user clicks on it the page will scroll to that section. All you need to do is add the anchor you previously set as an ID of the Row section you want the link to scroll to. In our case this would be section_services.
Once you link all your Menu items to your Page sections you are ready.

Adding a Button to your Main Navigation

Adding a button to your Main navigation similar to the Buy Theme button in the Demo is rather easy. Simply add the "boc_nav_button" class to your Top level Menu Item you want to transform to a button.

Problems when Saving

If you are having trouble saving your Menu items this is most likely due to large Menus that exceed the limit of your webserver's default submitted variable size limitation (submitted $_POST array). The PHP directive max_input_vars was introduced in PHP 5.3.9 and the real issue is that this directive has a default value of 1000. That’s a limit of around 60-80 menu items. You will know this limitation is taking place on your server if some of your menu items get lost upon saving and output in the front end is weird. What you need to do is simply increase your webserver's default submitted variable's size limitation thus your menus won't get truncated. You need to edit your php.ini server configuration file and increase the value of "max_input_vars" to 3000. If the variable doesn't exist in the file you can add this line to the file whick will overwrite the initial setting:
max_input_vars = 3000
How do you edit php.ini? That depends on your host. If you have access to the php.ini file, simply add or edit the directive, save, and restart Apache. If you’re with a web host that doesn’t give you access (common with shared hosting), you may have to contact your host and have them make the change for you.

Header Setup

This section describes how to setup your Fortuna Header, style your Subheader, style your Transparent header.
Step 1 - Go to Fortuna Options > Header > Main in your Dashboard. Here you can manage you main Header options.
Step 2 - Go to Theme Options > Header > Subheader. Here you can manage the top part of the header (the one that contains the contact email and phone number as well as social icons in the Demo version of the Theme.
Step 3 - Go to Fortuna Options > Header > Transparent Header. Here you can manage the Transparent Header settings. Transparent Headers are activated on a per page basis. Read more on that in the Fortuna Page Settings section.

Main Theme Color

Fortuna lets you set a global website color that most accent colors will inherit.
Step 1 - Go to Appearance > Customize in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Click on Colors and select your desired Theme Color. The Customize section lets you preview Live the changes on your website even before you have saved.

General Theme Options

The Fortuna Options section includes many more custmizations apart from the Header/Subheader/Menu options that provide your final product's uniqueness.
Step 1 - Go to Fortuna Options > General in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Customize your General Theme Options globally here, manage your Wrapper Style, Background color, Background Image, Responsive Design, Retina Support, Smooth Scroll option, Preloader Animation - Spinner Icon, Page Heading Style, Breadcrumb Options, Image Edges styles. You can customize some of these on a per Page basis under Fortuna Page Settings (read more in the Page Settings section)

Setting Theme Fonts

Fortuna Options provide a whole section dedicated to setting your Fortuna theme Fonts. Follow the steps below to add additional fonts to your website then assign them to where you want them applied.
Step 1 - Go to Fortuna Options > Typography in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Click on the Add Google Font button. Select a Google Font from the drop down list that you want to add to your website('Montserrat', 'Lato' and 'Droid Serif' ship with the theme so you don't need to add them). Once you do the available styles for that font will automatically be loaded below so you can add the ones you are willing to use. Some fonts have tons of styles, extra glyphs, encodings etc. that you may not need, thus saving on your page load time if you only pick the styles you want to include. Once you have added all the fonts you need click on Save Changes.
Step 3 - You can now assign the fonts added to your website to the following elements: Main Navigation, Main Sub-Navigation, Heading Font (for all your website headings), Body Font(general website text), Button Font(all your buttons). Along with the Font-family you can assign the font-styles, font-weight, letter-spacing and text-transform for each specific area. Make sure if you want for example a font-weight of 700 that you have added that specific style to the font in the previous section and that the font also supports it at all.

Footer Setup

Fortuna Theme offers a flexible footer with up to 4 widget areas that you can customize anyway you please. You can also pick a color preset for it as well as set your Copyrights text and footer unrolling effect. Add any social icon you want to your footer as well with just a few clicks.

Step 3 - Start adding page content by clicking on the Plus button or Add Element.
Step 4 - The Add Element Popup appears, click on the first element in order to add a new Row to your page. A Row is a main building block of a page, you can split your Rows into Columns, place various elements into your rows, set Row Backgrounds, effects etc.
Step 5 - Once you have the new Row added to your page you can split that Row into Columns in order to organize elements nicely in it. Once you split your Row into column you can start adding different Page Elements into your columns. If you want to edit your Row/Column Settings click on the small Pen icon (top right corner of the Row/Column). You can also Duplicate your Row with the Icon (duplicate icon) next to it or Remove the Row/Column with the icon to the right (trash bin icon).

Row Settings (General)

Step 1 - Click on the Edit Row button (Pen icon, top right of the Row). You will see the Row Settings Dialog popup.
Step 2 - Set your Row stretch setting.
Default will have your Row to follow your regular wrapper content width and the content within the Row to go into the center.
Select Stretch Row if you want your Row to go full width on your screen and the content to go into the center along with the regular wrapper content width - useful when you want content in the center but you want a full-width background of your row.
Select Stretch Row and Content if you want your Row to go full width on your screen and the content to go flow full width as well outside of the regular wrapper content width but with some padding to the sides - useful when you want content to flow full width of your screen and you want a full-width background of your row.
Select Stretch Row and Content (no paddings) if you want your Row to go full width on your screen and the content to go flow full width as well outside of the regular wrapper content width with no padding to the sides - useful when you want content to flow full width of your screen and you want a full-width background of your row. Please experiment with all of these options after you set a Background color to your Row and add some elements to your Row's columns in order to understand how they work.
Step 3 - Full height row?
Check this option if you want your Row to automatically stretch to your screen's height. If checked you can also pick the Content Position in a dropdown below.
Step 4 - Use video background?
Check this option if you want to apply a Youtube Video background to your Row. If checked you should also enter the Youtube Video URL below.
Step 5 - Set your Parallax setting.
Selecting an option here different than None will let you set a background image to the Row with Parallax Effect on Scroll. You can either upload a new image or set one from your Library. The difference between Simple and With Fade is in that With Fade adds an extra Fade Out effect to your Row content on user scroll (content fades out once Row is scrolled down).
Step 6 - Optional ID and Class. You can add those if you want to target this specific Row in you CSS or your Javascript code.

Row Settings (Design Options)

Click on the Edit Row button (Pen icon, top right of the Row). You will see the Row Settings Dialog popup. Then Click on the Design Options tab. In this section you can customize your Row's Design Options (Margin, Padding, Border, Background).
Step 1 - Modify this Row's basic Margins. By Default the Bottom Margin of a Row is 35px so if you leave the bottom margin out it will default to 35px, should you have a no bottom margin - simply add a "0" value in the bottom Margin field. Make sure you leave out the side Margin fields empty as those values are controlled by your layout.
Step 2 - Set your Row borders. After setting the border widths in the fields of the box model to the left (Top border, right border, bottom border, left border) you need to select a Border Color (to the right) as well as Border Style (Click on Theme Defaults dropdown and select the border style from the dropdown).
Step 3 - Set your Row Paddings (top, right, bottom, left). Make sure you leave out the side Padding fields empty as those are taken care by the layout. If you want to you can add side paddings to your Columns instead. In the example displayed we have set a top padding of 200px and a bottom padding of 200px.
Step 4 - Select your Row's background settings. Pick a Color or/and Background Image (and) Background Style. Make sure you pick "Cover" if you want the Row to be fully covered by a single background image.

Since Visual Composer version 4.6 you no longer need the help of Parallax & Video Backgrounds for VC Plugin in order to create Youtube video backgrounds. Simply head back to General tab and set your video background there as default VC functionality is preferable.
Place your Video URL, then enter the rest of the self explanatory options if you wish.

Managing Columns

Once you have the desired number of columns in a Row you can manage each Column's individual settings by clicking on the Toolbar icons of that specific Column. The Plus Icon adds an element to the top of the Column, the bottom Plus Icon adds an elemnt to the bottom of the Column. The Trash Bin icon removes the Column. Access the Column Settings by clicking on the Pen Icon.

Column Settings - General

Access the Column Settings by clicking on the Pen Icon. The General tab provides with the option to add CSS classes to your Column if you wish to access it via CSS (can pass more than one divided by a space).
Useful Classes - Fortuna comes with a few useful CSS classes that help you modify a Column's behavior:
Class Function
equal_height_column Add this class to all Columns in a Row when you want them to be equal in height.
align_middle_column Add this class to a Column when you want the content within it center aligned vertically.
no_padding_in_responsive_column Add when you want the Paddings you have assigned to the Column in the Design Options tab to be disregarded in Responsive Mode.
no_side_padding_in_responsive_column Add this class to a Column when you want the Side Paddings (left & right) you have assigned to it in the Design Options tab to be disregarded under Responsive Mode.

Pick a sidebar if you want to use one for this page and choose its location. For our Demo we have created a custom sidebar named Contact Sidebar and added a Contact Info widget to it as well as a Text Widget containing a Testimonial slider shortcode. Here's the shortcode you can paste in a Text Widget in order to get the same testimonial slider:
[boc_testimonials style="small" is_3d="" navigation="Dots" animation="Slide" autoplay="" autoplay_interval="12000" loop="" auto_height="yes" is_minimal="yes"][boc_testimonial author="Lindsay Ford" author_title="CEO" picture_url="21708"]"On extremely short notice, BlueOwlCreative came up with the perfect design I previously envisioned for my company. "[/boc_testimonial][boc_testimonial author="George Stoner" author_title="Marketing Manager" picture_url="21707"]"Wow, just the template we were looking for! Stunning clean design, element rich, clean code and browser friendly!"[/boc_testimonial][boc_testimonial author="Isabelle White" author_title="Designer" picture_url="21706"]"Awesome theme! Very intuitive to use, clean coded, and easy to customize. Just rated 5 stars! Will strongly recommend!"[/boc_testimonial][/boc_testimonials]

Creating custom Contact Pages

Apart from using the default Fortuna Contact page Template you can choose to create a totally custom Contact page by simply using your Page editor and adding a custom Form to the page. In the Demo you can see examples of custom contact pages under: Pages > Contact Pages > Contact Custom 1/2/3. As you can see below these are just regular pages with custom elements added to them.

Visual Composer - page builder plugin

You may skip installing the Parallax & Video Backgrounds for Visual Composer for your website or deactivate it because Visual Composer as of lately supports Row Parallax Backgrounds as well as Row Video Background and you may want to skip the overhead of loading extra plugin resources you do not need. We recommend installing the Parallax & Video Backgrounds for Visual Composer plugin, exploring all its features, then deciding whether you want to use any of them. If you are not going to do so you can deactivate the plugin in order to avoid loading its resources on your website.

Revolution Slider is the most popular Wordpress slider solution out there with tons of awesome features. It is an all-purpose slide builder that allows for showing almost any kind of content with highly customizable, transitions, effects and custom animations. Due to its visual oriented interface and countless options, Slider Revolution is suited for all!
You get a Free regular license of Revolution Slider - $19 Worth with the purchase of a Regular license of Fortuna that is suitable for use on 1 website!
The Demo sliders are also included with the theme so you can import them and reuse them on your website. There's also additional information you can find regarding Revolution Slider on its official page. Revolution Slider plugin also has its own documentation that you can access here.

Importing Theme Revolution Slider Demos

Importing the Theme Revolution Slider Demos is rather easy. Once you have the plugin installed click on the Revolution Slider link in your Dashboard. Then click on the Import Slider button.
You will find the Theme Slider Demos within the Fortuna package you unzipped in: DemoData/RevolutionSlider/. If you want to use all of them go ahead and import them all. It is advisable to import them all on your testing server so you can play around with them and modify them according to your needs. You can then export them and import them on your Live server.

Modifying the Demos

We have created some custom classes in order to apply uniform styling to the Slider Elements we have used in our Theme Sliders. Here's how you apply the classes to your slider layers, in the example below you can see for our "Clean Design. Clear Message." heading we have simply added a new text layer then we have selected the "Fortuna_Huge_Title" option from the style caption dropdown. To make the
To make the "Design" word a different color we have used plain HTML into the Text layer:
Clean <span style="color:rgb(255, 235, 100);">Design.</span><br> Clear Message.
Here's a list of Fortuna's Custom CSS classes specially created for Revolution slider and where to use them:
Fortuna_Huge_Title This class creates large text-size headings.
Fortuna_Huge_Title_Dark This class creates large text-size headings with dark color and no text shadow.
Fortuna_Big_Title Add this class to create large text-size headings (a tad smaller than the previous).
Fortuna_Serif_Font Used for subtitles this class sets the theme serif font family & italic font style.
Fortuna_Serif_Font_Dark Used for subtitles this class sets the theme serif font family & italic font style with dark color and no text shadow.
Fortuna_Grey_Border Add this class to an empty Layer (you still need to enter the HTML character for blank space - &nbsp; into its content) to create a grey border.
Apart from Revolution Slider's default buttons Fortuna allows you to add custom Theme style buttons to your slides. Here's an example of adding a "Button" to your Slide. Notice how the CSS classes are added straight into the "Anchor" tag (<a>) instead of into the Style field.
Here is a sample code for a Theme Color Fortuna large button within your slider:
<a href="" class="button btn_large btn_theme_color btn_rounded icon_pos_after"><span>Button Text</span> <i class="icon icon-heart2"></i></a>
As you can see adding a Fortuna style icon to a button is rather easy, simply add the icon as an extra element into the HTML like so, where the icon is the second class after the "icon" class passed:
<i class="icon icon-heart2"></i>
Here is a sample code for a White Color Outline Fortuna medium button within your slider:
<a href="" class="button  btn_medium btn_white btn_outline btn_rounded" target="_self"><span>Buy Theme</span></a>
All that is left for you to add your link URL into the "href" attribute and your slider button is fully functional.
Here's a list of Fortuna's Custom CSS classes especially created for Revolution slider buttons:
btn_small / btn_medium / btn_large / btn_huge / btn_small_stretched / btn_medium_stretched / btn_large_stretched / btn_huge_stretched Use one of these for your button size
btn_theme_color / btn_white / btn_dark / btn_royalblue / btn_bondi / btn_emerald / btn_jade / btn_turquoise / btn_blue / btn_green / btn_limegreen / btn_yellow / btn_orange / btn_pink / btn_red / btn_magenta / btn_purple / btn_brown Use one of these classes for your button color.
icon_pos_before / icon_pos_after Add one of these classes if you have added an icon to your button.

Updating your Revolution Slider Plugin

Updating your Revolution Slider plugin is rather easy, all you need to do is overwrite the current plugin version files with the latest ones provided within your Package. From your favorite FTP program, delete the folders/files in the following directory:
wp-content/plugins/revslider/
Then replace them with the folders/files located inside the "revslider" folder that can be found inside the revslider.zip file from your package.
Never uninstall/reinstall the plugin, as that would also delete your previously built sliders. Instead, as long as the following instructions are followed, any previously built sliders will be saved and still exist once the update process is complete!
If the Fortuna latest version package doesn't include the latest Revolution Slider version feel free to contact us via our Profile Page Contact form (bottom right) in ThemeForest and simply ask for the latest version of the plugin and we will send it to you shortly after.

Contact Form 7 plugin

Contact Form 7 is a Contact Form creation plugin that is very flexible and easy to use. It manages multiple contact forms, plus you can customize the form and the mail contents flexibly with simple markup. The form supports Ajax-powered submitting, CAPTCHA, Akismet spam filtering and so on.
Fortuna ships with a few custom style presets for your forms. Style 1 is the default input fields theme style that your fields will get if no additional classes are passed to your form fields. For Style 2 you need to add an extra class to your fields - "input_bottom_line".
Read more on how to Create your own Contact Forms a few sections up in Creating Contact Forms or find out more on the plugin official website.

Really Simple CAPTCHA

Really Simple CAPTCHA is a plugin that provides the option to add CAPTCHAs to your Contact forms. Once installed the plugin will add an extra form element that can be added to your Contact Form 7 forms - Captcha.
Clicking on it you will be presented with the option to add 2 new fields to your form, a Captcha image and a Captcha input field. Enter IDs and Classes for both if you need to (for styling purposes) and click on Insert Tag.
The 2 tags will be added to your form, place them wherever you wish in it and check your front end to ensure things look OK and your Captcha is generated properly.
Read more info on the plugin on its official website
CAPTCHA does not work; the image does not show up.
Really Simple CAPTCHA needs GD and FreeType library installed on your server. Ask your server administrator if they are installed. Also, make the temporary file folder writable. The location of the temporary file folder is managed by the instance variable tmp_dir of ReallySimpleCaptcha class. Note that the setting varies depending on the calling plugin. For example, Contact Form 7 uses wp-contents/uploads/wpcf7_captcha as the temporary folder basically, but it can use different folder depending on your settings.

Woocommerce plugin

Fortuna is fully compatible with Woocommerce so you can start your online shop with it in a matter of minutes. All you need to do is install Woocommerce plugin, setup your products and start selling!

Install Woocommerce

To install the plugin go to Plugins > Add New, search for Woocommerce. Install WooCommerce - excelling eCommerce by WooThemes plugin. Once you do WooCommerce will ask you to Install Woocommerce Pages for you. Click on the button and you are ready to go.

Import Demo Data

Dummy data for WooCommerce is located in a file called dummy-data.xml, which is located in the WooCommerce plugin directory. Once WooCommerce is installed, you can find it two ways:
- Use your cPanel or FTP, go to 'wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/dummy-data' and locate the dummy-data.xml file.
- Unpack or unzip the WooCommerce .zip file
To import the Shop Demo data simply follow these steps once you have downloaded the dummy-data.xml file:
Step 1 - Go to Tools > Import in your Dashboard.
Step 2 - Click on Wordpress then Choose file and locate the dummy-data.xml you previously saved. Click Upload and Import.
Step 3 - Check the box below Import Attachments and click on Submit.
Importing the Demo Data along with all theme images may take awhile (up to several minutes) so please be patient and wait until the process finishes.
Step 4 - Done! You can continue by editing your products/categories - Dashboard > Productsand setting up your Woocommerce Theme Options (scroll down).

Woocommerce Theme Options

Fortuna has some custom Theme Options related to Woocommerce that will help you manage your Online store. Head over to Dashboard > Fortuna Options > Woocommerce to explore them.
Here's what you can customize within Fortuna's Theme options as it comes to your Woocommerce shop:
WooCommerce layout - Your Woocommerce pages' layout: No sidebar, Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar.
WooCommerce Single Product Page layout - Your single product layout: No sidebar, Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar.
Products per Page - How many products you want your product listing pages to show (Shop/Category etc.).
Enable WooCommerce Shopping Cart in Header - yes, just what it says.
Background Color for WooCommerce Shopping Cart in Header - Dark/White presets for the header cart dropdown.
Static Content on top of your Shop page (great for adding sliders) - This is some static content that will go on top of your Shop page. Perfect for adding sliders (Revolution slider for example). In our Demo we have entered for example the following:
<div>[rev_slider shop_slider][boc_spacing height="50px"]</div>
Notice this is under TEXT editor, not VISUAL, where "[rev_slider shop_slider]" is the shortcode of our Shop slider we have created with Revolution Slider plugin and we want to show on top of our Shop page and "[boc_spacing height='50px']" is simply a Fortuna "spacing" shortcode of 50 pixels. The whole thing is wrapped in a "DIV" as otherwise the WP editor wraps it in a paragraph - "P" which may not behave as cleanly on your Shop page.

Child Theme

Fortuna Wordpress Theme comes with a Child Theme ready to be used.
Simply install the fortuna-child.zip and activate the Child Theme just like a regular theme after you have installed Fortuna.

What is a Child Theme?

A child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality and styling of another theme, called the parent theme. Child themes are the recommended way of modifying an existing theme. Child themes allow you to modify or add to the functionality of the existing parent theme.

Why use a Child Theme?

Always use a Child Theme when modifying any theme files. This way you make sure a theme update will not wipe out any changes you have made to the files.
There are a few reasons why you would want to use a child theme: If you modify a theme directly and it is updated, then your modifications may be lost. By using a child theme you will ensure that your modifications are preserved.
Read more on Modifying your Theme and using Child Themes here.

Global Custom CSS

Fortuna provides you with a useful way of adding Global CSS rules to your website without editing any files. Simply head to your Fortuna Options > Custom CSS in your Dashboard and type in any CSS want to globally include into all your pages.

Custom Page CSS (Custom CSS Settings)

Fortuna provides you with a useful way of adding Custom Page CSS rules to your specific pages without editing any files. The CSS rules you add will affect only the current page which is very useful in case you want a particular CSS to take place only for a certain page. To add Page-specific CSS simply click on the CSS button above the Editor while editing a page and enter your CSS rules in the Page Settings Popup that appears.
In order to display the vast array of capabilities that Fortuna features we used the Custom Page CSS to overwrite Theme Options on different pages. For example on Home Page > Alternative Color pages we have overwritten the Main theme color of our Demo to show alternative color options.

Helper CSS Classes

Fortuna provides a custom set of CSS Helper classes that provide useful functionality with a minimal effort. Each helper class is responsible for doing one job and you can combine more than one class together. Just by adding a single class to an element you can center content within it, change fonts, change link colors etc. All Fortuna elements provide an "Extra class name" field where you can add CSS classes to them.
Class Function
equal_height_column Add this class to all Columns in a Row when you want them to be equal in height.
align_middle_column Add this class to a Column when you want the content in it center-aligned vertically.
no_padding_in_responsive_column Add when you want the Paddings you have assigned to a Column in the Design Options tab to be disregarded in Responsive Mode (on smaller screen devices).
no_side_padding_in_responsive_column Add this class to a Column when you want the Side Paddings (left & right) you have assigned to it in the Design Options tab to be disregarded under Responsive Mode.
no_margin_in_responsive_column Add this class to a Column when you want the Margins you have assigned to it in the Design Options tab to be disregarded under Responsive Mode.
white_text Sets a white text color CSS rule to the element and its child elements.
Useful to add to a Row or Column that have a Dark background color or image.
dark_links By default your link colors inherit your Main Theme Color but you can overwrite this by adding this CSS class to a container element (Row, Column etc.) to force all Text links in it to be dark colored (useful on bright backgrounds).
white_links By default your link colors inherit your Main Theme Color but you can overwrite this by adding this CSS class to a container element (Row, Column etc.) to force all Text links in it to be white colored (useful on dark backgrounds).
body_font Force the font you have set under Theme Options > Typography > Body Font on an element.
For example you want a heading to inherit your Body Font instead of your default Heading Font - simply add the "body_font" class to the "Extra class name" field of your Heading element.
heading_font Force the font you have set under Theme Options > Typography > Heading Font on an element.
For example you want some text to inherit your Heading Font instead of your default Body Font - simply add the "heading_font" class to the "Extra class name" field of your Text Block (or whatever) element.
text_44_on_mobile Add this class to your big headings (having font-size greater than 50px). It sets a font-size of 44px in responsive mode so your headings won't run out of smaller devices' screens.
side_bounce_icon Add this class to a button that has an icon to add a "side bounce" effect to the icon in it. For example the button in the gradient header page.
btn_push_left Useful to add as to a Button's "Extra class name" field when you want to increase spacing between buttons for example. This adds 20px right margin to your button. Use on first button.
btn_push_right Useful to add as to a Button's "Extra class name" field when you want to increase spacing between buttons for example. This adds 20px left margin to your button. By default if you have 2 adjacent button elements they get a 12px spacing between them. Add the "btn_push_right" to the second button to increase this spacing to 20px.
btn_full_width Add to a button to make it Full Width in size - take the container's width
row_img_featured_texts_border Assign this class to a row to add a grey dotted border between its columns - check an example in the Demo - Pages > Custom Header - What My Clients Say section the borders among the 4 columns with testimonials are accomplished by adding the "row_img_featured_texts_border" class to the 2 rows.
no_text_transform Sets a normal text-transform CSS rule to the element and its child elements.
Useful to remove any inherited text-transorm rules. For example in the Demo we have globally set an uppercase text-transform rule in Fortuna Options > Typography > Heading Font (all our heading fonts will be capital-lettered). We have added the no_text_transform class to particular Headings in the Demo to have normal text-transorm.
small_video_link Add this class to an anchor tag (link) to create a small Active color Video icon before the link text.
video_link Add this class to an anchor tag (link) to create a large Video icon like the one found on Minimal Style 2 Home page. Add a Text Block, use the TEXT editor instead of the VISUAL and paste this inside:
<a class="video_link mfp_iframe_popup" href="https://vimeo.com/32944253">Video</a>
letter_spacing_negative Sets a negative (-0.04em) letter-spacing CSS rule to the element.
no_letter_spacing Sets a neutral (0em) letter-spacing CSS rule to the element.
bgr_bottom_right Sets a bottom right background-position to the Column it has been added to.
Take for example on Demo's Home page the 3 columns on a single row with background colors and big icon images as backgrounds. Adding the big Icon images as backgrounds will position them in the center of the column, once you add the "bgr_bottom_right" to the column they will be positioned in the bottom-right.
theme_color_ul Sets the main theme color as the color for your default Unordered List's circle image.
Use the TEXT editor instead of VISUAL to add the class to your UL element like so:
<ul class="theme_color_ul">
	<li>List Item 1</li>
	<li>List Item 2</li>
	<li>List Item 3</li>
</ul>
text_rotate Adds a text rotation animation to the element. Split your strings with a semi-colon character ";"
Animated Rotating <strong class="text_rotate">Headings;Texts;Headlines</strong>
typewriter Adds a typewriter text animation to the element. Split your strings with a semi-colon character ";"
Typewriter Animated <strong class="typewriter">Text Headings;Or any text really;... Cool effect, huh? </strong>
img_zoom_on_hover Add this class to an Image element in order to add the animated Zoom Icon effect on Mouse Over (on hover).
white_frame_img Sets a white frame and a light grey drop shadow to an image.
Used on Pages > Home Pages > Alternative Font 2 for the small Video Image (top left, below the Get Creative Today heading).
push_down_100 Sets a top position of 100px for an image relative to its default.
Used on Pages > Home Pages > Alternative Font 2 for the large Phone(s) Image at the page top to push it down 100 pixels and make it overlay the next Row.
no_arrow_effect Add this class to a Subnavigation Menu Item to disable the Arrow effect you Submenu/Dropdown Arrow Effect you have enabled in your Theme Options > Header > Main Navigation only for this particular menu item.
hover_box_up Add this class to an Element to add a cool Sliding Up effect on hover. Take a look at the Featured services on the Single Page in the Demo.
border_bgr_clip Add this class to a Inner Column (a column within a Row within a Row) to to add the background-clip: padding-box; property to it and thus being able to subtract borders from its background. What that lets you do is set transparent borders to those columns and have them push away from each other via the transparent borders. An example is the dark semi-transparent square sections on the Minimal Style Home Page in the Demo.
mm_hide Add this class to a Mega Menu Column container Menu item to hide the Heading of the Column
boc_text_slider Adds a Text Slider text animation to the Fortuna Heading element like the example here. Split your strings with a semi-colon character ";"
We craft <span class="boc_text_slider">Web Design.; Development.</span>
row_tilting_bgr Adds a Background Tilting animation on hover to the current layer like the example here. Add a new Row, set its Background Image under General > Parallax, then add the "row_tilting_bgr" class to the Row. If you want to disable pointer events of the elements in this layer and thus keep the background image animation upon hovering everything in that Row add also "disable_pointer_events" class to the Row. The drawback is you will not be able to click on anything in that Row.

"Particles" effect

In version 1.03 we have added the awesome Particles effect that you can now add to your Rows. Simply add the "particles_animation" ID to a Row element and you will have the cool effect take place in your Row. By default the particles layer will be added below your content so that actions like buttons etc will still work. If you want to place the "particles" canvas on top of everything that goes into your Row though so that the particles hover effect takes place fully then simply add the "particles_on_top" CSS class to that same Row!

Raw JS on a Page

Fortuna provides you with a way to add inline Javascript into your pages via the Raw JS page element. While editing a page add a new element to your page then select Raw JS.
Once the Popup appears enter the Javascript code you want executed on your page and click Save. Done! Next time your page gets loaded in the front end the Javascript code you entered in your Raw JS element you added to the page will be executed.

Updating Fortuna (Manual)

Updating Fortuna is rather similar to installing the theme. Follow these steps to update your theme:
Step 1 - Login to your Wordpress Dashboard
Step 2 - Go to Appearance > Themes. Deactivate Fortuna Theme by activating a different theme.
Step 3 - Delete Fortuna Theme, don't worry your content will not be lost.
Step 4 - Upload the latest version of fortuna.zip and activate it (more info in the Theme Installation section).
When modifying any theme files it is always best to use a Child theme, thus your file changes won’t be lost once you update your theme (check the Child Theme section for more). Your content (Pages/Posts/Media/Theme Options) will not be lost when you update your theme.

Automatic Theme Updates

You can also take advantage of the The Envato WordPress ToolKit Plugin to automatically update your theme.
Step 1 - Get Your Envato API Key. Before installing the plugin you should request your Envato API key since it may take awhile before it gets processed correctly into the system. Login to Themeforest, go to your Settings Tab. Click on the API Keys side tab, add a label for your new API key and click on the Generate API Key button. Envato will then create a new random 32 character API key for you.
Step 2 - Download, Install and Activate The Envato WordPress ToolKit Plugin. Click on the link above, then click on the Download ZIP button (in the right sidebar) so you can download the plugin. Go ahead and install the plugin just like any other plugin, go to your Dashboard > Plugins Click Add New, then select the Upload Plugin button. Browse for the plugin file you previously downloaded, install and activate it.
Step 3 - Set your Envato API Key into the plugin. Head over to your Dashboard > Envato Toolkit and enter your Envato Username + Your generated API key. Once saved, the toolkit will recognize your API key and display all of your Themeforest purchases. This process can sometimes take from a few minutes up to a few hours, so please be patient. You may clear any browser/WP cache at this point if you are using any to make sure the delay is not on your end.
Step 4 - Update your theme automatically. Once the API key verification is cleared you will see your available theme and be able to update them automatically from this screen. Once you click on "Update automatically" you will be prompted to confirm with a message that all your customizations will be lost. This applies to changes you have made to the main theme files, not Theme Options or Pages/Posts.
Same applies here, when modifying any theme files it is always best to use a Child theme, thus your file changes won't be lost once you update your theme (check the Child Theme section for more). Your content (Pages/Posts/Media/Theme Options) will not be lost when you update your theme.

Optimize Fortuna for Page Load Speed

Fortuna is a theme with plenty of features and internal resources. Even though it is coded with optimization in mind there are things to do on your server side to significally improve Page Load speed. Here's what I have setup for the Demo and advice you to also spend a little time on as it will greatly improve page load speed & user experience.
1. First off I am using "Better WordPress Minify" plugin to Minify all my resources (JS & CSS) and to combine them into single bundle files!
2. Using a CDN (I use Cloudflare) you will notice results immediately especially if you have done Step 1 already. All your resources will be combined into single JS and CSS files, they will be minified and they will be loaded off of a CDN.
3. Using "WP Super Cache" or "WP Total Cache" are great ways to cache your page content. They Cache your pages into static HTML files so they are served straight away when requested by the client browser instead of building the pages dynamically, running hundreds of queries etc. upon every page load.
4. Optimize your images (make sure any image you upload to your WP installation is optimized for web). In the Demo images are not optimized in the best way possible as we'd rather have the Demo look its best, but it's definitely something you can look into if you further want to improve your page loads.
