Today we have launched a new theme documentation page that will serve as a growing knowledge base for everything Elegant Themes. My main goal is to improve the users experience for new customers by creating a collection of helpful articles, videos, common problems and helpful resources. This documentation page will continue to grow with time, but even in its infancy I think that it will prove quite useful for new users. Let us know what you think. Also, if there is anything you think should be added, please let us know! Click Here To View The Documentation.

  1. Thanks for the update! It’s good to know that you guys continue to invest in existing customers!

  2. Excellent Nick.. as always.

  3. this is amazing nick, well done because everyweek big improvments going on here with elegant themes.

  4. Wonderful job to improve the user experience. I have learned more things in less time using videos than any other mode of learning. I’m sure this move will be equally applauded by others too. Keep up the great work!

  5. Seems, InStyle is pushed by a few more days :).

  6. Hi Nick,
    That sounds very nice !!!

    – This page is for general tricks, a lot of informations, I learn about etcrop !!!
    – The readme for each theme (may be to purge some redoundant trick with general)
    – The changelog must be completed with the number of the version, file changed…

    Like that it will be the top for me.


  7. It’s great to know that you are expanding the database. Even the most experienced of users can get stuck sometimes, and this should help everyone!

  8. Just want to say thanks for this update. Maybe I need this someday.


  9. Thanks for the document! We always use this helpful resource.

  10. Thanks for update..

    If possible, include the wp-member plugin (for block and unblock the content) within the theme , soo look blended.


  11. That’s awesome. Best support as always 🙂 It’s going to be nice for users before they join to see how the themes work. Keep up the good work guys!

  12. Excelent handbook! I’ve just added a link to it onto my private blog: http://kwis.abcdw.pl (unfortunatelly in polish language). THX

  13. Great Stuff!

    However, I think something is missing…

    – Upgrade/Update instructions
    – Change file list for every version

    This way we can update/upgrade our modified version of the theme.


  14. less instructions…more themes.

  15. I’m sure this will be a big help..and much needed as long as people read it!

    All too often we see the same questions/ same mistakes about how to upload the themes – did the same thing myself as a newbie last year. People are so used to uploading a zip file in WP to install a theme…why not have that file zipped ready for install?

    I noticed some comments recently regarding getting questions answered Hopefully this will cut out unnecessary questions so mods get chance to answer the others. Well done Nick and team

  16. Great work Nick!!

    The video “Configure the homepage Featured Slider using ePanel” is corrupt.
    The error is:
    “200, Stream not found, Netstream.Play.StreamNotFound, Clip: ‘[Clip]’/members-area/tutorials/videos/epanel-featured.flv”

  17. One area I have difficulty understanding is the ET Custom Fields. Having a reference point similar to the shortcodes write-up would be great in my opinion.

  18. Hi,
    I was wondering how to change the fonts and font colors in the theme. Is this possible?

  19. I always had problems with short codes, this helps, thanks

  20. So much to know
    But great to have it all in one place.

    Thanks for your continued improvements.

  21. Great work. Thank you.

    Please reorder the navigation to find everything fast – sometimes it’s a bit confused, if you wanna find an answer or help.

    My problem is the very short logged-in time – please make automatic login possible. Thank you.

  22. Hi Nick, just found out about your product. How easy is it to adjust themes to use as normal pages in a non-blog website? More specifically, non-wordpress? Thanks.

    by the way your themes are beautiful.

  23. Hi,

    I tried to make drop down menus on my another website where I use InterPhase theme, but it doesn`t work. Do you know why? I followed your tutorial, but no success.

  24. Great Nick, it seems wonderful that you initiate in order to improve users experiences and really these videos, articles are very useful in this regard.

  25. Great Job! I like it so much.
    Keeping touch…

  26. I miss an explanation about the ET settings in the posts. For example i see no clear difference between a photo post and a blog post?
    But anyway: other tutorials are great!

  27. I want to add blurbs to my website, but i am not able to do. adding “more” into the page doesn’t work
    Can you please guide me ?

  28. Totally incredible how Elegent Themes continues to prove why they are the best WordPress themes on the entire interwebs. I tried to use some of those free themes from the official site but my clients were never happy. Now I can build them a great website with elegent theme.

    Keep up the great work.

  29. Hi, I have a few questions that I would like to see added to teh documentation if possible

    1. Date icons.
    All the posts that are on the Elegant themes blog have a little graphic circle with the date in of the post, like this one has 21FEB in a Pink circle. How is this achieved, and could this be added tot eh short code or Panel?

    2. PSD files. Can we have a section on how to use these. I can see how they can be used to slice up and use, but a vidoe demoing this in practice and customising a particular theme using this would be a great video!


  30. Its good to see theme documentation page has evolved over time. My suggestion would be to add common question and answer list for each theme, like how to move logo, how to move sidebar to the left etc.

  31. this is amazing nick, well done because everyweek big improvments going on here with elegant themes.
