Version 1.0: 02/03/2014
Author: Arrowtheme
Design: Fiora Themes

Installation

There are several ways Fiora can be installed. For existing sites that already have content, the first method will only involve the installation and activation of the theme. The second option includes a full Drupal 7 installation with the same SQL database file used to create the theme demo. Please choose which installation method works best for you and follow the instructions. We do highly recommend you perform the full installation, especially if you plan on using the Commerce functionality.

Theme Installation only

Download Drupal: https://drupal.org/project/drupal to install default Drupal.

Option 1: Option 2:

Full Drupal Installation

The following steps are designed for people that have experience manually installing Drupal and importing databases. If you do not feel comfortable performing these steps yourself, contact your server administrator for help. NOTE this option is for a completely new Drupal install. Do not import the provided SQL file into an existing Drupal database or you will lose all of your data!

  1. Create a database for this installation of Drupal and import the SQL file that came with the theme.
  2. Follow these directions to create the settings.php file. Save this file somewhere so you can copy it over to the Drupal installation we have provided.
  3. Copy the entire contents of the Drupal_7 folder to the location on your web server where you want your site to be accessed. If you want your primary domain to point to your install of Fiora, copy everything to the root folder. If you want your site to be accessed as a subsection of your domain (for example: yourdomain.com/drupal) then simply rename the Drupal_7 folder to the desired name and upload to the root of your server. Also be sure to copy over the settings.php file mentioned in the previous step
  4. Login to your site yourdomain.com/user with the username admin and the password admin123 and visit yourdomain.com/admin/people to change the admin username and password.
  5. Go through the Drupal configuration found in yourdomain.com/admin/config options and update all the necessary information to reflect your website. Also be sure to visit yourdomain.com/admin/config/media/file-system and change the Temporary Directory.

Those regions are there to do whatever you like with and are not restricted by any additional markup.

Drupal Commerce

Fiora supports the Drupal Commerce module, a powerful eCommerce framework for building online stores. Drupal Commerce has a complete set of documentation which we highly recommend reading if you have never used DC before. We will go over some of the basics and highlight the aspects of the theme that enhance DC and how you can use them on your site. If you do plan on using Drupal Commerce with your install of Fiora we also highly recommend you install the full demo content as it will provide you a completely functional configuration of Drupal Commerce to begin working with.

- You need to download and install Drupal Commerce module. Click here to follow this article. - Active module Commerce: Visit http://yoursite.com/admin/modules and active Commerce.

Create the taxonomy of Product Content Type: Project Categories and Product Tags. Follow this article http://arrowtheme.com/userguide/fiora/#toc8

Create the fields of Product Content Type. Follow this article http://arrowtheme.com/userguide/fiora/#toc9

Product Types

When the Commerce module is activated you can visit /admin/commerce to begin configuring Drupal Commerce. We will not be going over every options page, but we will outline the creation of Product Types and explain how that relates to the "Product" content type. Visit /admin/commerce/products/types to begin creating your own Product Types. Below is an example of what the fields look like on a Fiora demo product type:



Product Types have some default fields like SKU which are required for Commerce products to function correctly, but you can create as many additional fields as you need for your products.

Important: Any product fields that are intended to function as attribute selection fields on Add to Cart forms need to be configured to do so. When editing that field, scroll down to the ATTRIBUTE FIELD SETTINGS option and enable the option. For example, if you have several variations of a "Hat" product (red, blue, green) and you want the customer to be able to select the color they want when adding the item to the cart, the Color field would need to be configured in this way.


Creating products using "Product"

As described earlier in the Content Types section of the documentation, Fiora uses a content type called Product Display which acts as a bridge between Drupal and Commerce products. The "Product Reference" field allows you to create your product(s) at the same time of the node creation. Below is a step by step guide for using this content type to create a Drupal Commerce product node in Fiora:

Creating a "Shop" page.

The key to make everything tie together is the View page which uses the search index to display the products. This is done by creating a View like you would any other View, but by selecting your search index from the "Show" select menu during the initial view creation. This View is an unformatted list of the rendered entity, and no other special configurations are needed. The following template files are associated with Fiora's demo shop page:

Shop Page link: http://arrowtheme.com/fiora/shop

Fiora supports 3 types of Category Shop display.

Single Shop

Fiora supports 1 type to display content.

Wishlist

To make use of the Wishlist functionality that can be seen on the Fiora demo you will need to install the Flag module. Once you're done, visit /admin/structure/flags/import to import the following code:

    $handler->display->display_options['filters']['type']['value'] = array(
      'product' => 'product',
    );

    /* Display: Block */
    $handler = $view->new_display('block', 'Block', 'block');
    $handler->display->display_options['defaults']['css_class'] = FALSE;
    $handler->display->display_options['css_class'] = 'white-wrapper nopadding container-style';
    $translatables['wishlist_block'] = array(
      t('Master'),
      t('Wishlist Block'),
      t('more'),
      t('Apply'),
      t('Reset'),
      t('Sort by'),
      t('Asc'),
      t('Desc'),
      t('<p>There are no product in your wishlist.</p>'),
      t('flag'),
      t('Block'),
    );

            

Then if you don't already have it you can use the code in /files_export_views/wishlist-block.txt to create a View to display a block of the Wishlist items.
