Thank you for purchasing the Organique WordPress Theme crafted by ProteusThemes.

Below you will find the documentation how to use the theme.

Video Tutorial


I assume you already have the fresh copy of WordPress installed on your server.

You can install the Organique WP Theme the three different ways:

  1. Using Envato WordPress Toolkit - preferred method
    You can install any theme you purchased on the ThemeForest by installing Envato WordPress Toolkit plugin. Just follow this tutorial by wpmudev team. This is preferred method, because you will be able to update the theme to newer version (we are continuously improving all our products) from within the WordPress dashboard, like you update the plugins or official themes.
  2. Upload a zip file
    When you are logged in the Wordpress go to Appearance → Themes → Install Themes → Upload and select the zip file you downloaded from the ThemeForest and click Add New button.
  3. FTP upload
    Unzip the contents of the file and upload the folder named organique to your server to wp-content/themes/ folder using FTP client.

Once your theme is on the server, activate it by clicking the Activate button. Congratulations! Now the Organique WP Theme is fully installed.

Once the theme is activated you will be asked to install the required and suggested plugins. Without these plugins the theme might not work as expected.

Customize the Appearance

You can fully customize the appearance of the Organique Theme. Go to the Appearance → Themes and click on the Customize button:


The new window appears and you can now customize the appearance of your theme - upload your custom logo, change the base color theme and much more:


Demo Content

You may want to import the demo content, just like like on our preview site.

The demo content XML file is located in extras/demo-content.xml.

In your WP administration navigate to Tools → Import and select Wordpress. You will be asked to install the plugin. Install it and after that you will be able to import the demo file with all the demo pages, posts, settings, sliders ...

Note that this will not import the widgets, you can import the widget using the Widgets Importer & Exporter plugin. The exported demo widgets file can be found in the extras/demo-widgets.wie.

Import demo content

Just after the theme activation you will be asked to install the required and recommended plugins which work together with the theme:

plugins to install

We recommend that you install them all (required and recommended) to use all the features the Organique offers.


Organique WP is WooCommerce ready.

Once the WooCommerce is activated you will see this notice:

WooCommerce activated

Click the button to skip the pages install if you imported the demo content for Organique before. Then select the right pages in the WooCommerce → Settings → Pages.

The next step is to configure the plugin settings in the WooCommerce → Settings. There are number of tabs at the top, you should configure them to fit your needs. Most importantly, in the tab Products we recommend to use these settings for the Image Options:

suggested image options

When you are done with the settings, go to the Appearance → Widgets. We developed special filters for the products. The widget is called Organique: Shop Category Filters.

Drag & Drop this widget to the sidebar called Shop Filter Sidebar. You can add other Widgets from WooCommerce there as well if you like.

Shop category filters

That's all, your WooCommerce shop is now ready!

All further information and documentation for the WooCommerce you can find on official website.

Contact Form 7

The form on Contact Us page is made using the Contact Form 7 WP Plugin:

You can use the contact form builder to build the form to collect the data you need. For the same appearance as on the demo you can paste the following code below to the Form: field of the plugin:



<div class="row">
  <div class="col-xs-12  col-sm-4">
    <div class="form-group">
      <label class="text-dark" for="name">Name <span class="warning">*</span></label>
      [text* your-name]
    <div class="form-group">
      <label class="text-dark" for="email">E-mail <span class="warning">*</span></label>
      [email* your-email]
    <div class="form-group">
      <label class="text-dark" for="subject">Subject <span class="warning">*</span></label>
      [text your-subject]
    <span class="hidden-xs">Fields marked with <span class="warning">*</span> are obligatory</span>
  <div class="col-xs-12  col-sm-8">
    <div class="form-group">
      <label class="text-dark" for="message">Message <span class="warning">*</span></label>
      [textarea your-message]
    <div class="right">
      [submit class:btn class:btn-warning "SEND NOW"]

When you copy the HTML/JS code just paste it to the regular Text Widget:

And that's all!

There are several widgets you can use with the Organique WP Theme:

  • Organique: Alternative Text Widget - mostly for the Page Builder
  • Organique: Centered Title - mostly for the Page Builder
  • Organique: Featured Link - mostly for the Page Builder
  • Organique: Google Map - mostly for the Page Builder

  • Organique: Top Rated Products - mostly for the Page Builder, available only when WooCommerce is active
  • Organique: Title With Icon - mostly for the Page Builder


There are 8 different sidebars associated with the theme by default, so you can easily decide how the different layout types will look like.

Custom sidebars plugin

Further more, with Custom sidebars WP plugin you can create unlimited number of the sidebars for each page/archive/post separately.

See the plugin page of this plugin to see how it works.

Front pages on organique are built using the Page Builder by SiteOrigin.

We have created many unique widgets to be used with the page builder (check the section above)

Firstly on the page editing screen select the Page Builder mode:

Front page with slider

If you use front page with slider, you must upload individual slider as the custom posts for Slider on the left of WP admin.

The images for the slider should be at least 1920 x 420 px large.

Shortcodes Ultimate

Organique WP is using the plugin Shortcodes Ultimate with custom skin to insert most of the shortcodes to the content.

Enabling the custom skin

Shortcodes Ultimate plugin does not offer the custom skin field in its settings anymore. To activate our custom skins for this plugin you have to go to Appearance -> Themes and activate another theme and then activate our Organique theme again. By activating the theme our custom skins for Shortcode Ultimate will get applied.

To enable the custom Organique skin for the plugin, go to the Shortcodes ultimate Settings, and in the field Skin type the organique and click Save changes.

Shortcodes ultimate settings

When this is done, you can insert the shortcodes when editing the page/post as shown in the video above.

Skin Organique should be copied to the folder wp-content/uploads/shortcodes-ultimate-skins/organique/ upon theme activation. If it wasn't, you have to move it from the folder wp-content/themes/organique/assets/ there.

Social Icons

You can insert social icons of practically any service using the [zocial] shortcode, example: [zocial href="" taget="_blank" service="twitter"].

The options for the social icons:


The same as the href attribute for the a HTML element


The same as the taget attribute for the a HTML element


Possible values:

zocial icons


Organique WP officially supports WPML. Head over to the WPML website, buy the subscription, then download and install the following plugins:

  • WPML Multilingual CMS
  • WPML String Translation
  • WPML Translation Management

After that the WPML wizard will guide you to properly configure the multilingual site.

For reference: the widgets and theme options can be only translated using the String Translation.

Manual translation

Organique WP Theme is translation ready out of the box. The translation .pot file is located in the theme's languages folder. There is already the example of the translation to Slovene: sl_SI.po and files.

First you need to change your entire language of WP installation to your language. This can be done in file wp-config.php in the root of your WP installation and then in wp-admin Dasboard → Updates you will notice that you can update the WP in your language.

Second, navigate to the folder of the Organique theme (wp-content/themes/organique/) and in the folder translations (of the theme) you will find file organique.pot. Load this file (as the catalog) in the PoEdit and start translating. When done, save the .po file in the folder translations (there is sl_SI.po already there as an example) and name it the same as the defined WPLANG constant in the file wp-config.php. And that's it, refresh and your translation should work now.
