Here are the first steps you need to take in order to set up the Shine Theme to resemble the demo.
1. Install Genesis and your child theme:
In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme. Upload the Genesis Framework first, but do not activate it. It just needs to be present in the themes directory and will run quietly in the background. Next, upload your child theme. Activate this theme.
2. Import demo content (optional):
Included in the Shine theme zip file is a folder named xml. Inside that folder is a file named shine.xml. If you’d like to import the content from the theme demo, go to Tools > Import/Export and import this file.
Note: This file only imports the posts, pages and menus so you have something to work with while building your site. It does not automatically set up the theme to resemble the demo.
3. Install plugins:
Go to Plugins > Add New and then search for and install the following plugins:
Genesis eNews Extended
Genesis Responsive Slider
Simple Social Icons
3. Adjust thumbnail size:
To use the same thumbnail sizes as seen in the demo, go to Settings > Media and set the default Thumbnail size to 340 x 280 pixels.
