Can’t wait to get started with this amazing theme! I have downloaded the gp premium zip file and uploaded it as a plugin. Now it says to activate the add-ones by going to appearance > generate press but this seems to be missing from the appearance section. Do I need to install the regular GP as a theme too?October 1, 2015 at 5:18 pm #141285Justin
Update: I installed the GP Premium as a plug in. And I’ve now installed GeneratePress as the theme from the directory. Now I can activate the GP Premium add-ons. Please let me know if I should be doing anything differently. Can’t thank you enough for this theme!!October 1, 2015 at 5:36 pm #141286TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
That’s perfect! The GP theme and GP Premium both need to be installed, which is what you’ve done.
Thanks for your purchase! 🙂December 5, 2015 at 1:56 am #158141Eileen
This was helpful.
It would be even more helpful if this article could be updated:
I was stuck at this part:
If you’re using GP Premium, you need to activate the add-ons you wish to use (to avoid loading unnecessary addons).
You can do this in “Appearance > GeneratePress”.
GeneratePress was missing from the Appearance menu because GP wasn’t installed as a theme. WP noobs like me need to be told that GP has to be installed as a theme. Thanks!December 5, 2015 at 9:32 am #158204TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJanuary 2, 2020 at 9:25 am #1120068Pericles
