Install & Activate Required Plugins

The theme is coupled with some plugins that are required / recommended to extend its functionality. Distributing functionality within plugins is a recommended best practise as it helps in reusability of content even when the theme is switched to a different one. For example the sliders and content in the page builder will continue to work even if you switch themes as long as you have the plugins active. Here are the instructions on how you need to install and activate the plugins after Installing and Activating the Theme. Please follow the steps –

Oshine Theme Version 5.1 and above

As soon as you install and activate the theme, you will be directed to the Oshine Welcome Screen. Navigate to the Install Plugins Tab and Click on the Install and Activate Plugins.

Installation of certain plugins can take more time than others, do not refresh the page if you see the loader for a while.
