Installing your Kadence Child Theme

Prior to installing your new Kadence theme, pause any automatic RSS-to-Email feeds that you may have. Kadence themes automatically install demo posts, and they will go out to your subscribers if this isn't disabled first. Once the theme is installed, you can delete the demo posts by following this tutorial: Deleting Kadence Demo Posts, and then you can re-start your feed.

The video below will guide you through installing your new Kadence theme:

If moving from Genesis to the same theme on Kadence, we recommend first activating a default theme, then delete the current Genesis theme prior to completing the Kadence installation. Also, we recommend taking a screenshot of your current Genesis homepage to use as a reference when re-creating the content on the new Kadence homepage. The Genesis widget content will not transfer over automatically to the Kadence theme.

TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS: 

  • It can take up to 7-8 minutes for the theme to completely load, depending on the host.
  • If you get an error code when you first activate the theme, click on Appearance > Kadence > Kadence Starter Templates in the sidebar, then click on the theme image again to install it. This will finish the installation.
  • BLUEHOST & GODADDY USERS: If you continue to receive an error code during installation, contact your host and ask them to increase the Memory Limit and Post Max Size to 512KB. Once this is done, click on Appearance > Kadence > Kadence Starter Templates in the sidebar, then click on the theme image again to install it. This will finish the installation.
