Compatible Plugins

Although Brideliness works well with a great number of WordPress plugins, there are some aspects to plugin compatibility in regards of Brideliness theme.

First one is styling. In general a WordPress theme is mainly custom styling that is added to a WordPress site, while plugins mainly carry functionality. Thus, although a plugin may be fully compatible with our theme, it will most certainly not have styles needed to look well with our theme. Thus in many cases additional styles will need to be created and added to ensure 100% compatibility with a plugin.

Second one is plugin conflicts. A plugin may be compatible with our theme, but it may not be compatible with one or several of other plugins which are already installed on your site.

Third one is actual incomaptibility. Some plugins, for one reason or another, will not work correctly with our theme and may cause irreversible damage to your site. That is why it is always to back up your site files and database on a regular basis.

Fully compatible plugins:

  • WooCommerce
  • Visual Composer

Non-compatible plugins:

    No known plugins yet. Please contact us at if you found an incompatible plugin.

Creating a child theme

We strongly recommend you to create a child theme and use it for customizing Brideliness Theme. This way you can update the theme and it's plugins without fear of loosing implemented changes.

You can download the blank child theme we created for you here.

Please read this article to get a better understanding of WordPress child theme purpose, creation and usage:

Updating your theme

It is recommended that you always update your theme to the latest version. When a new version of the theme is availabe Envato will usually send an e-mail notifictaion to you on this matter. Theme update information will also be bublished in the theme's comments section on themeforest. The latest changelog file is also going to be available online.

Here is the general theme update algorithm:

  1. Create a full backup of your site. All site files and the database. You should do this to be able to restore the site in case of an unsuccessful update.
  2. Through your WordPress dashboard update plugins to their latest version. At least the very important ones, like WooCommerce.
  3. Through your WordPress dashboard switch your site to a neutral theme, like Twenty Sixteen.
  4. If you made customization in the theme you want to update, make sure that customization is going to be moved to the new updated version of the theme. Otherwise you may loose it. If the customization was significant you may want to use the help of an experienced developer to properly move it to the updated theme version.
  5. Download the latest theme version from Envato. Prepare it for the upload.
  6. Delete the old theme in your WordPress dashboard or via FTP/SSH.
  7. Upload the new updated version of the theme via WordPress dashboard or FTP/SSH.
  8. Activate it (or child theme, if you use one) in your WordPress dahsboard.
  9. Finish moving customization if any.

Your WordPress install and plugins should also be updated along with the theme. In this context you may be interested in reviewing the following materials:

Translating Your Theme

There are several methods to create a translation of a WordPress theme. To translate Brideliness to another language (Localization) you will need to create a custom translation. We recommend using PoEdit to create a custom translation for Brideliness.

To create a custom translation you will need to take several steps:

  1. Download PoEdit and it install on your computer:
  2. Locate the brideliness.pot file in the languages folder of your theme, open it with PoEdit and hit create new translation
  3. Translate necessary text strings. You will be able to come back and edit your translation later.
  4. Save the resulting file as themename-language_LOCALE.po, the .mo file will be compiled automatically. For example, for German language files should be named as brideliness-de_DE.po and
  5. Upload resulting files to wp-content/languages/ in your WordPress installation.
  6. Go to WordPress Settings and adjust Site Language in the dropdown.
  7. Save changes.

To create a website which has several languages and cureencies use WPML.

We care about you and what you do, because we think that your success is our success too. That is why our support team is trained to treat your messages with proper respect and attention.

Although we do our best to satisfy all of our customers' needs, certain things naturally fall beyond the scope of our support. We are not able to provide support on code customization, third-party plugin integration, and server-related issues. Theme/demo data installation is also not included in support. We'll generally provide support on using theme's features or problems with the theme only.

You should understand that sophisticated tasks like changing theme's functionality, achieving 100% third-party plugin compatibility, adding new functionality to the theme, changing theme layouts beyond the existing options, and other may require advanced web development skill set.

We strongly recommend you to carefully read the Item Support Policy by Envato which we follow in order to acquire a full understanding of the terms and conditions for our support services:

Theme Customization

Theme support does not include services to modify or extend the item beyond the original features, style and functionality. For customization services that will help you tailor the item to your specific requirements, it is recommended that you contact our support team to see if we are going to be able to privately offer paid customisation services. You can also hire a third-party developer to customize the theme for you.

Speeding up your site

If you experience problems with the loading speed of your site, here's what you can do to imporve it:

  1. Move your site to a better host. Cheap hosting usually isn't the fastest one. A $1-per-month host most likely won't have them, and your HandyTheme experience, as well as our support duty, will turn into a nightmare. But price is not the best criteria for hostings to be judged by.
  2. Use a chaching plugin. At Themes.Zone we like using WP Super Cache.
  3. Use CDN. Here are some of the popular CDN service providers:
  4. Optimize your images. Images ften are a heavy part of your website and take quite some time to load. That is why you should consider reducing your images' initial sizes online or offline before uploading them to your site.
    These are some of the popular online services for image size reduction:

  5. Optimize your database. The essence of database optimization is deleting drafts, not used (deleted) elements, such as spam comments etc. from your database.
    These are some of the popular plugins for database optimization:
  6. Minify your css. After your site's development is over you can minify your styles.
