This guide covers the basics of installing the standalone theme into WordPress.
Important: This tutorial covers installation of the standalone version of the theme which DOESN’T contain the demo content. If you’d like to replicate our demo please install the RocketLauncher package. The tutorial on how to do that can be found under Tutorials in this demo content.
Note: All sample content images will be replaced with blank versions. Screenshots, such as those for the Logo Editing tutorial will remain however.
Downloading the necessary files
To install the theme, you need two files:-
Tachyon Theme(rt_tachyon_wp.zip) – This file is the standalone theme package you will use to install your theme into WordPress.
Gantry Plugin(gantry_wordpress_framework.zip) – This file contains the Gantry Framework Plugin and it’s required in order to have our themes working.
There are other files that you may wish to download that accompany the release, but are not required for the theme to work.
Tachyon Source PNG(s)(rt_tachyon_wp-sources.zip) – This contains all the Adobe Fireworks PNG source files for the theme, and if applicable, the logo font.
Tachyon RocketLauncher(rt_tachyon_wp-rocketlauncher.zip) – The RocketLauncher pack is a full WordPress install that contains all the demo content, including plugins and the theme.
