In order to proceed with the theme installation, you need to make sure you have the latest version of WordPress (4.7) on your website site. The theme has been built to work with the latest version of WooCommerce (2.6.x)
Upon downloading the "package.zip" file from Themeforest, you'll have all files you need inside. Extract the "package.zip" file and inside you will find the theme zip file called "eva.zip", that is the file you need to install.
Please Note: You can install the theme in two ways: through Wordpress, or via FTP. If you have trouble installing the theme via Wordpress, please proceed with installing it via FTP and you will be able to get around the issue.
Follow the steps below to install via Wordpress.
Follow the steps below to install via FTP.
Now that you have activated Eva theme, you will see a notice at the top of the screen. This notice is to let you know about the plugins that we recommend you install for use with the theme. Click ‘Begin installing plugins’ and install/activate the plugins one by one. You can also access this page by going to Appearance > Install Plugins.
NOTE: Installing the Redux Framework, Eva Theme Extensions and Visual Composer plugin are required.
The theme comes with a setup wizard making it really easy to install the plugins coming with it and import the demo content in two simple steps. As soon as the theme is activated, the setup wizard will start automatically.
This is what you should be seeing on your screen:
The following plugins are required by the theme’s demo imported, so it can import dummy content in the next step.
The importer will help you start with the pre-built layouts from the demo and dummy content such as product pages, blog posts and widgets. In case you're using the theme on an existing site you may not want to import the demo content. In that case, simply skip this step.
Good luck with your project!
If the one click demo import does not complete or takes too long, you most likely have a memory limit on your server as explained above. Here is another method to try.
Please note: make a backup of the theme prior to updating.
The theme is located in wp-content/themes/eva.
Go to http://themeforest.net/downloads to download latest version of the theme. The theme is located inside the downloaded zip in "Theme files" folder.
Copy eva folder into wp-content/themes/ folder. Make sure this folder is named "eva" (replace with old).
It seems scary but you really won’t loose any of your data. The only exception is if you have made edits to theme files like header.php, footer.php etc. These changes will need to made again to the new files. But all of your content and theme settings are preserved.
NOTE: If you did some customization/code changes directly in our theme files you might loose them after updating all files.
We suggest you to customize our theme using child theme and don’t change actual theme files as this will make it easier to update your parent theme.
The Envato Market plugin can install WordPress themes and plugins purchased from ThemeForest & CodeCanyon by connecting with the Envato Market API using a secure OAuth personal token. Once your themes & plugins are installed WordPress will periodically check for updates, so keeping your items up to date is as simple as a few clicks.
You can add a global token to connect all your items from your account, and/or connect directly with a specific item using a singe-use token & item ID. When the global token and single-use token are set for the same item, the single-use token will be used to communicate with the API.
The latest version of the Envato Market plugin comes with theme. After install and activating the plugin, click on the “Envato Market” icon from the left sidebar. Here you have two options:
To generate your personal token, click on this link & login using your Envato Market login details.

Click on “Save Changes”.
Once you have configured this properly, you will see a screen where you can install or update your already purchased plugins & themes.

Please make sure both the theme and WooCommerce are updated to their latest version. The latest version of Eva is always compatible with the latest version of WooCommerce. If the problem persist make sure it's not a plugin that's causing it. Something that may not be yet compatible with your current version of WooCommerce. You can test that by deactivating all 3rd party plugins then run another test.
