USING KADENCE THEME & BLOCKS
KADENCE DOCUMENTATION & SUPPORT FORUMS
Kadence Themes & Blocks has comprehensive Kadence Documentation, covering both the free Kadence theme and the free Kadence Block plugin which we include in this theme.
If you don't find what you need there, check out their free Kadence Facebook group where everyone is incredibly helpful.
If you'd like a deep dive into Kadence settings and blocks and would like to understand the difference between Kadence free and Pro, then I'd recommend this truly excellent Kadence YouTube tutorial.
INSTALLING KADENCE THEME & KADENCE BLOCKS
If you have bought a Kadence child theme from The Design Space, then the free Kadence theme & the free Kadence Blocks plugin will automatically be installed as part of the child theme import process.
But if you would like to download and install them manually, both available via the WordPress Repository.

INSTALLING YOUR KADENCE CHILD THEME
Note: Because the demo data includes all of those things, please check the option boxes to indicate which parts of the demo site you wish to install.
1. UNZIP YOUR DOWNLOAD PACKAGE
Inside your zipped downlad (called UNZIP ME!), you’ll find an installable theme zip called ‘Name of Theme_For_Kadence’.
You can upload that file straight into your Appearance > Themes area. There are a couple of extra steps to complete once you’ve done so, so please do also read the instructions in the section below.
Depending on the theme, you may also find additional design assets or demo content.
2. UPLOAD YOUR CHILD THEME TO THE THEMES AREA
Go to Appearance > Themes in the left WordPress menu. Click on Add New, select your theme zip, upload it and activate it.
3. INSTALL YOUR KADENCE CHILD THEME DEMO CONTENT

WOOCOMMERCE / E-COMMERCE
If you want to sell something through your site you’re going to need an eCommerce plugin. WooCommerce is free to install, is easy to configure with PayPal or Stripe, and has an easy install process.
For templates where we use WooCommerce in our demo we prompt you to upload and activate it during the install steps, but it can be used with any of our child themes.
Divi, Elementor and Kadence all have built-in WooCommerce integration with blocks and modules that you can drop into any page or post.
If you’d like to add WooCommerce to your site, we have a free mini course which you can access here.
We aim to offer high quality support to our customers every step of the way. If you have noticed an error on this page - maybe something that has gone out of date due to upgrades, or a typo - please let us know so that we can continue to be the best we can.
