Hello! First of all I would like to thank you for purchasing my theme! :)
This file will teach you how to set up and use the “classify” WordPress Theme.
This file is really extensive so you might think the theme is hard to use,
actually its not, you probably just might jump to the options page and explore everything yourself, this file is more of a reference work if you do not know what to do, or if you are not familiar to WordPress.
Have fun with your new theme! best regards
The Theme is built with WordPress best practices in mind, therefore it makes heavy use of the WordPress template engine. What exactly does that mean?
Whenever you see a php function call like this within your php files (get_header(), get_footer() or get_sidebar() ) the theme retrieves a reusable code snippet, most of the time a chunk of code that is used in many different files.
Apart from the php structure the theme uses a lot of modern CSS3 features, most notably the power of media queries to serve different layouts for different viewport sizes. If you use a modern browser (IE9 +, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) and resize your browser window you will realize that the theme adapts its size to the viewport.

You can add ads from front end even if you are the admin you must need to post from front end as standard posts or premium ads. There are two type of ads: regular and featured. For featured ads the user will need to buy a price plan. The spots for featured ads are above the regular on homepage, category page, archive page, search page and on sidebar. The featured ads will become regular when the period of time from price plan will end. The latest ad will be shown first (in both categories: featured and regular). The user can convert a regular ad into a featured one by simply editing it and selecting a price plan that he has bought.
You can have an unlimited number of pricing plans. To add a new one please go to dashboard -> Pricing Plans -> Add New Price Plan. Please fill the name some description, the price (without the currency sign, it will be added from theme settings - see above.) the ads number and the ads active time. Publish it.

If you want to setup Pay Per post then you need to watch this video.
The Theme uses valid HTML and comes with predefined classes for common elements needed in web design.
All templates share basic elements like header, footer, main, and entry so be carefull when editing those or adding/changing the CSS for those ids and classes :)
The CSS for the theme is split into various files: one that holds the basic markup for layout which is called style.css.
The theme uses advanced jQuery functions. You do not need to know how to use jQuery to activate them, almost everything is controlled by WordPress. All the function calls as well as as the custom created jQuery plugins are located in the custom.js file.
Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this theme. As I said at the beginning, I'd be glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this theme. No guarantees, but I'll do my best to assist.
