Having Problems Installing Affilotheme?
This post will hopefully help you avoid some of the problems I had in installing Affilotheme, whether you are someone who is bulding a website for the first time, or you have hundreds of other WordPress themed sites.
I had the previous Affilotheme and initially it did fine but in the last 6 months my sales on a particular site have been drying up.
Since I am not a computer geek and do not look at Google Analytics much, I don’t know the exact answer but I guessed from the high bounce rate (80%+) that it had a lot to do with the look of the site.
So I decided to install Mark Ling’s latest Affilotheme. It wasn’t easy to install, I had some problems, but the technical team helped me to overcome these. (One of the main reasons I use Mark Long’s theme and his products is that he has a good Support team and forum so that you get your questions answered. And once you’ve bought one of his products -like Affiloblueprint- you don’t have to keep paying to have access to help or further information.
In the video lower down I give before and after shots of the particular site and will hopefully come back and let you all know how the newly uploaded theme helps-if at all.
How to Install Affilotheme using C-panel
Really the best way to do this is follow the link provided by Affilorama, but for newbies it might be helpful to follow a video which I made just for you. I hate the technical side of building websites, and I know there are others out there just like me!
Here is VIDEO -click on the link below:
As I ended the video by saying that I had a problem at the end installing the theme, the problem was that at that stage the WordPress Jetpack plugin was incompatible with this new theme (if you have the same problem you can watch the next video. Even if you don’t it might be helpful to watch to see how you set up the new website using the Affilotheme). I think in the near future they should have a fix in place to overcome the Jetpack problem.
Here’s VIDEO 2 on installing Affilotheme:
It shows what the site looks like immediately after activation, and how assigning a widget or two improves the appearance immediately. By the way, changing the category of the Reviews posts to “reviews”, and then putting a Category posts widget into the sidebar did work, and enabled me to show the Reviews at the top right of the sidebar , as was intended (the video does not show that.)
and here’s the LINK if your hosting supports C-panel
Hopefully as I use the Affilotheme Header settings to create a decent Header, and write some more articles, the bounce rate on this site will drop and the sales will return. So far, with no decent header yet in place, I still got my first sale in 10 weeks so something is working! Will report back later when I get to grip with the lates Googgle Analytics stats as well.
Hope this post has been helpful,
