Using Ocin Lite
Installing and activating Ocin Lite on your WordPress website is just like adding any other theme to your website. Let’s take a look at how to set up Ocin Lite and the main features this WooCommerce based theme offers shop owners:
Installation and Activation
First navigate to Appearance > Themes in your WordPress dashboard and select Add New. Then, search for Ocin Lite.
Next, click on Install and then Activate. Ocin Lite is now ready to be used as your default website theme.
Customize Ocin Lite
Once Ocin Lite is activated on your website, click on Customize to begin customizing your website to match your brand. After all, brand recognition is important for both loyal and new customers alike.
The great thing about Ocin Lite is that customization is all done via the Admin Panel using the Live Theme Customizer. There is no need for any coding or technical skills meaning Ocin Lite is appropriate for website owners of all levels.
The first step is to upload your online shop’s personal logo, add your website’s title, and include any tagline you wish to accompany your site title in the header area. This is done by navigating to Site Identity. In addition, you can upload a site icon further encouraging brand recognition amongst your site visitors.
To change your header text color and background colors navigate to Colors and make use of the advanced color picker. This tool allows you to match any color scheme your brand has for a perfectly vibrant and consistent feel across your website.
If you navigate to Header Image or Background Image you can upload images either from your WordPress Media Library or download from another source such as your desktop or the internet. Ocin Lite does a nice job of recommending ideal image sizes so that your website visitors get the best viewing experience possible when they click on your website.
There are two menu locations to take advantage of when using Ocin Lite as your online shop’s theme: Primary Menu and Social Menu.
Although Quema Labs has some documentation to guide you through creating a social menu on your website that will essentially display your social media profiles as Custom Links, the process is easy to do without following the guide.
First, download the free WordPress plugin Menu Social Icons from the WordPress Repository.
Next, navigate to Appearance > Menus in your WordPress dashboard and create a menu using your social profiles.
- Name your menu something like Social Media.
- Select Social Menu under Menu Settings > Theme Locations.
- Under Custom Links fill in your social media profile URL, the link text, and choose a social icon.
Save your newly created menu and watch your social icons appear at the footer of your website.
If you prefer, you can also add your social media icons in the sidebar of your website using the Widget section in the Live Theme Customer.
In addition to adding social media icons to your sidebar, you can also choose from a variety of other custom widgets such as Search, Recent Posts, and Ocin Lite’s exclusive “Order by” for WooCommerce which will help to sort your eCommerce shop’s products for suite visitors.
Since Ocin Lite’s aim is to help online shop owners display their products and services to customers near and far, it only makes sense to highlight the eCommerce shop section of the theme.
The simple setup of the shop, paired with its great use of whitespace and easy menu navigation, makes Ocin Lite a refreshing alternative to the busy online shops that abound the internet.
With easy to click on images redirecting potential customers to product details, related products, and a user-friendly shopping cart, there is no reason why Ocin Lite will not help you to gain more sales and encourage your online shop’s success.
Support and Documentation
Support for Ocin Lite is easy to access. There are a number of valuable articles available to help customers with most frequently asked questions. In addition, you can submit a private ticket through Quema Labs’ support ticket system or add a public ticket that displays much like a forum so that you can gain insight from others using the same theme as you.
Although Ocin Lite is super simple to navigate, even without any prior experience with Quema Labs themes, there is some documentation available for helping you with what are the seemingly “difficult” features of the theme.
If you are in the market for a no-fluff kind of eCommerce theme, that subsequently will not break the bank, I suggest taking a look at Quema Labs’ Ocin Lite WordPress theme.
Designed with online shop owners in mind, and easy enough for anyone to use, this theme is sure to delight site visitors with its fresh and modern look and help you make your mark in the eCommerce world.
