Plugin installation

Ekko requires three essentials plugins to operate: Redux Framework, WPBakery Page Builder and KeyDesign Addon. We also recommend several plugins that we use for various demos that only need to be installed prior to importing a demo: Revolution Slider, WooCommerce, Breadcrumbs NavXT and Contact Form 7.

After the theme is installed successfully you will get a notification message about installation of required and recommended plugins:

  • Click on Begin installing plugins
  • Check all plugins, select Install and click on Apply

Plugin license and activation: please read the license notes in the dedicated Plugin License page.
