Getting started

After you have bought EDS Theme Collection on the DNN store, here are the following steps:

Installation of themes:

  1. Download themes and modules from the DNN store
  2. Install StyleWizard module (Host > Extensions)
  3. Install a theme that you want (Host > Extensions)
  4. Install containers (Host > Extensions)
  5. Set the theme as a theme that will be used on the portal (Admin > Site settings > Basic Settings > Appearance)
  6. Add the Style Wizard on a page that uses the theme and activate it

Notice: if during installation you get Error 500, it means that the size of the theme is bigger than the allowed size of the file on your site and it is necessary to increase the max upload size in the web.config file.

Change Maxrequestlenght and reguestlenghtdiskt theshold according to this example:
<httpRuntime maxRequestLength="50288" requestLengthDiskThreshold="50288" executionTimeout="600" />

  1. It is necessary to install a theme from the collection
  2. Install the modules that come with the themes: OnePage module and MegaMenu module

  4. Add all the modules to some page and activate them
  5. Upload a template file and a template resources file in the root of the default folder (Host > File manager)

Important: In order to be able to use the File Manager for uploading portal templates, you should add "resources" as Allowable File Extensions (Host > Host settings > Other settings).
