At the first step we advise you to rename your current theme folder to something like: …/wp-content/themes/dt-THEME_NAME-old/. It will help you to save custom changes of the template.
At the next stage you need to install the theme in the usual way.
- Select “Static CSS” option in Theme Options >> Misc (for Nimble, PressMate and PurePress themes).
- Install cache plugin.
- If possible, decrease size of your images.
- Deactivate needless plugins.
- Decrease number of items (portfolios, albums, catalogs, photos) per page.
Remember you can choose which one of them will be set as the Homepage one by following: Dashboard >> Settings >> Reading >> Front page displays >> A static page (select below) >> Front page
- open “functions PHP”
- navigate to line 765
- change the “dt_validate_gravatar( $comment->comment_author_email )” to “1 || dt_validate_gravatar( $comment->comment_author_email )”
Note 2 things:
- It’s huge, so we cannot guarantee you’ll be able to install it.
- Images on demo are copyrighted and you cannot use them without purchasing proper licenses.

- I have purchased many, many Wordpress themes in my career for both myself and my clients. I always customize themes I buy, since neither my clients nor I want our websites to look like everyone else’s. In the past, this has been a bit of a chore, due to limited options, oftentimes resulting in completely editing css/code, building my own page templates etc., to achieve the desired/required look. THIS theme is both beautiful and functional, as well as being very easy to use. I feel like a kid in a candy store! Thank you for all of your hard work.Miriam Anderson
- So far it’s the most flexible theme with “looking forward” design. All the questions I had were answered (by myself) by searching through the comments. Good job!Diana Gray
