To use Resumo WordPress Theme, you must be running WordPress 4.9.5 or higher, PHP 5.6 or higher, Elementor Page Builder 2.0.3 or higher and mysql 5 or higher version. Below is a checklist of items your host needs to comply with to ensure proper Resumo operation:
Ensure your web host has the minimum requirements to run WordPress.
Make sure the latest version of WordPress is up and running.
If necessary, you can download the latest release of WordPress from the official WordPress website.
There are two methods to install the theme. If the normal installation method (a) is not supported by your web host, you will have to use the alternate option (b).
a) Normal Installation
Login to WordPress Admin and browse to Appearance > Themes.
Click on the Add New Theme (or "Install Themes" tab for older versions) and click Upload.
Browse your computer to select "resumo.zip" (it's in the zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest). Click "Install Now" button.
Once it's uploaded, click the Activate link.
b) FTP Installation (alternate method)
Use your FTP software to browse to wp-content/themes folder.
Upload the resumo folder.
Once it's uploaded, go to your WordPress Admin, browse to Appearance > Themes.
Click the Activate link.
Important: After activation, you will be presented with resumo-core plugin that you should activate. Do not forget to activate it or not all of the theme features will be available.
Note: If you are migration from a theme which used the native featured images functionality of WordPress. Please use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin to resize all the thumbnails. Click the link above and download the free plugin, and read through the steps it contains, it has all the information you need. Run it from Tools > Regen. Thumbnails.
Installation, Demo Import
Demo Content Import
PHP Configuration limits
Issues you may encounter, such as demo content fails when importing and similar issues, are generally related to excessively low PHP configuration limit settings. You can either increase these limits on your own, or contact your web host and ask to have the limits increased to the following minimums:
memory_limit - 96M
max_input_vars - 3000
max_execution_time - 600
post_max_size - 32M
upload_max_filesize - 32M
allow_url_fopen - ON
Verify your PHP limits
You can check them by installing the WordPress phpinfo() plugin and checking Settings. The first column refers to your installation value, and the second column refers to the limits of your host. The latter values are often lower if you have selected a cheaper hosting package.
You can always contact your host to ask what the current settings are, and have them adjusted if necessary. Some hosts will try to keep PHP limits low to conserve resources. Since are paying for those resources, you should rightfully expect to be getting your money’s worth.
Demo Content Import (mannual)
We highly recommend against using this method in production. Please only use on an extra copy for testing or experimenting. This method most likely will fail on shared web hosts. Uncheck "import attachments" option if it fails and try again.
Install and activate all required plugins
Go to Tools > Import > WordPress, install WordPress Importer and run it
Select xml file from wpmain file and click Import Demo Data
Please be patience as it will take quite some time. Do not interrupt it.
Once it's done, go to Appearance > Menus > Manage Locations. Select "Main Menu" next to "Main Navigation".
Go to Edit Menus on the same page, select "Main Menu (Main Navigation)" from menus to edit and click Select
Setup your homepage to "Main Homepage" in Settings > Reading > Your homepage displays and select A static page
Important: Please do not import content on a WordPress installation that already has a lot of content. Or the very least, make a backup first. A catastrophic mess can be created.
In some cases you would like to remove demo content. You can remove all posts, pages, etc using WordPress Reset plugin. Be aware that this plugin resets the WordPress database back to it's defaults. Deletes all customizations and content. It does not modify files only resets the database.
Creating home page is a simple process. Homepage is made with the help of our "FREL ELEMENTS" and "Elementor Page Builder" elements. Add any element to the page as you wish.

Adding a new post is the same way as default WordPress installations, however, there are extra options that might need explaining.
While the theme can function without featured images, it's highly recommended that you add a featured image to each post. This not only makes your site/blog more lively but also improves user experience.
To set the featured image, use the WordPress normal method.
Recommended Image Size (for Blog Posts)
Image size (dimensions) will depend on what type of layout you're using throughout your WordPress installation or per individual post basis. This image will not only be used on the post, but also on the category listing pages.
Compatible with all layouts and default slider: 2000x2000 (width x height)
Supported Post Formats
Setup your post normally and set a featured image. Copy the embed code of the video from YouTube, Vimeo or any other site that gives you video embed codes. Paste the code in the "Add Video" box.
Note: Videos will be resized to fit the container so you can choose a larger embed format if the video site allows you to specify size/dimensions.
Click "Add Image" button
Click "Select" button
Audio post format supports only soundcloud audio. Insert audio url to input.
Image format works very similar to a standard post. Just set a featured image and you're done.

Theme comes with .po file included under the languages folder. To translate:
Open resumo.po file located here \wp-content\themes\resumo\languages\ using poedit tool and translate the existing text to your own
Save the file with the locale (for example: ru_RU.po). If you have already setup WordPress in your language, you can get it from your wp-config.php file under, for example: define('WPLANG', 'ru_RU');. In this case, you would save your file as ru_RU.po.
Step above should have generated a .po and a .mo file. Copy both these files and put them into the languages folder of the theme.

After translating, you may wish to use the correct locale to translate and localize your WordPress installation completely. Refer to Installing WordPress In Your Language at WordPress Codex to learn how to.
