Once you’ve downloaded the installation file on ThemeForest, extract it and locate a file called
osmos.zip. You can install the theme by using one of two installation methods:
- Login to WordPress admin.
- Go to Admin panel > Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme.
- Click on Choose File and select
- Click on Install Now.
- When your theme is successfully installed, click Activate to activate the newly installed theme.
- Using FTP client, login to the server where your WordPress website is hosted.
- Using FTP client, navigate to the
/wp-content/themes/directory under your WordPress website’s root directory.
- Using FTP client, upload the Osmos directory to themes directory on remote server.
- Once uploaded, navigate to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes in the WordPress Dashboard and hit Activate below your newly uploaded theme.
When you use first or second method, please make sure that you’re uploading the
osmos.zip file, not entire package you downloaded. If you upload the wrong file you will get an error stating “Error: missing style.css stylesheet.”
Once installation is complete, your Osmos theme will be ready to use. You should now see Osmos theme as active.
Installing Required Plugins
When you first install the theme you’ll see a popup on your dashboard from the theme asking you to install a number of plugins.
Allow the theme to install these for you. The plugins which are installed are dependent of the theme, the images below are for illustrative purposes only.
You can install all plugins at the same time by checking the box at the top of the this list.
Importing Demo Data
I have created a folder labeled Demo Content which contains an export for the Live Preview.
- Log-in to your WordPress backend and open your WordPress importer Tool>Import>WordPress.
- Click on Choose file and select the
- Check the box Download and import file attachments. This will download attachments for images included in the Live Preview demo.
- Click Upload file and import.
You now just need to wait for the importer to finish. This might take a few minutes depending on your hosting server speed.
How to Set Up “Home Page”
Ok, so far we have installed the theme, we have installed the plugins and imported the demo data, whats next?
The final step in getting your new theme setup and ready for you to edit as you wish is to setup your home page and menu. To begin, head to Settings > Reading, here you will need to set your Front Page.
By default WP is set to show your latest posts, however to make your theme just like our demo you should select a static front page from the pages provided in the demo data.
How to Update Theme
You can update your theme by performing the following steps:
- Download the latest Osmos file from ThemeForest.
- Extract it and locate
osmos.zipand locate the Osmos folder.
- Replace content of the Osmos folder to the
/wp-content/themes/Osmosfolder of your web site.
Also you can use for update Envato Market plugin.

From here you will need to navigate to the Header Settings > General Settings, where you will find an area to upload your logo.

Contact Form 7 is our recommended form plugin for WordPress. It is a simple but powerful form creator for WordPress. Here we will show you how to use Contact Form 7 to create and edit a basic form.
After Contact Form 7 is installed, you will find a new menu item in your WordPress admin area called Contact, here is where your forms and created and edited. From the Contact main screen, you will see your first contact form, its usually a default form called Contact Form 1 OR if you have imported the demo data for our theme you may see a few forms that we have made specially for you.
<div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-6"> <label> Your Name <span>*</span> </label> [text* your-name] </div> <div class="col-sm-6"> <label> Your Email <span>*</span> </label> [email* your-email] </div> </div> <label> Subject </label> [text your-subject] <label> Your Message </label> [textarea your-message] <button class="wpcf7-form-control wpcf7-submit vl-btn vl-btn--primary vl-btn--xs vl-btn--rounded"><span class="vl-btn--text">Send Message</span><i class="vl-btn--icon fa fa-paper-plane"></i></button>

Since Visual Composer 4.8 – the process of activating VC for use on custom post types such as Portfolio has slightly changed.
The area can now be found under the Role Manager Tab within the Visual Composer settings area.
Once here, navigate to the Post Type dropdown and switch from Pages and Post to Custom – this will then allow you to check each post type you wish to enable Visual Composer on.
All Shortcodes are integrated in Visual Composer you can find them under VLThemes tab.

Change the Order
Sadly, by default, WordPress has no easy method built into it for taking control of things such as the order of your Posts, categories (Portfolio, Team, Classes etc based on your theme) – Thankfully there is a very handy plugin which can help – Intuitive Custom Post Order
To install the plugin, simply head to Plugins > Add New and search for Intuitive Custom Post Order – once installed, you will need to head to Settings > Intuitive CPO to set things up. Once there you will see the following screen (the items will vary depending on your theme)
Simply Tick the box next to the content you wish to control and hit save.
Now you can quickly and easily re-order your items by simply dragging them within the WP Dashboard – you can see this wonderful plugin in action below.
Child themes are separate themes that rely on a parent theme for most of their functionality. If you are using a child theme, WordPress will check your child theme first to see if a specific functionality exists. If it doesn’t, it will use the parent theme. This is great because it allows you to modify only what you need.
Child themes should always be used if you plan on modifying even a single character in your theme.
If you plan to edit the theme files, like style.css, I`m suggesting you to install both
osmos-child.zip themes, then activate the child theme. Child themes are great because allow you to edit the theme and also lets you update the original theme in the future, without loosing your edited files work.
More about child themes and how to use them you can read here: LINK.
