Thank you for purchasing our plugin. We're as excited as you are about the possibilities before you. Finally, its going to be far less complicated to make your WordPress website pages look and feel the way you want them. We built this theme for everyone. It is perfect for newcomers to creating a WordPress site. Code is only poetry to people who know what it all means. To everyone else it is a strange and very foreign language. We get that and built everybody's requests right into the front end options. For all our seasoned WordPress pros, we know how frustrating it can be trying to finish a client's project. We think you're about to discover you can go from start to finish faster than ever and produce a smashing looking site in far less time than you ever thought possible.

Note: Be sure to refer to the information outlined in the following documentation for the autoRoyal theme while building your new site. We have explained much of what you need to know to create great looking pages easily using the features built into the theme with you in mind. If you cannot locate the answer here, sign up for our support forum. We do not answer support questions on ThemeForest neither via email.


The first step in setting up your autoRoyal-powered website is to install WordPress and the autoRoyal plugin itself. But before doing so, you should check your hosting environment. As a guide, we recommend:

  • PHP version 7 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.0 or greater
  • WordPress memory limit of 128 MB or greater
  • HTTPS support
  • You should also check WordPress requirements.

PHP 5.2.4+ and MySQL 5.0+ reached End Of Life and is no longer maintained and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.

Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.

Select Let’s do this! to get started. Or select Not now, I'll do this later if you prefer to manually set up your autoRoyal website.

IMPORTANT! After activation go to your admin area and click settings, then select permalinks. Add there click save permalinks, it will help to get the new custom post types slugs correct.
