The VRPConnector comes with a very bare theme not tailored to the specific needs of a single company, vacation rental property manager or owner. This requires that all new installs must be themed to match your company's marketing needs.
Copying the theme files
Do NOT edit the theme files in the plugin directory as they will be over-written when the plugin is updated!
- From within your wordpress theme directory create a directory named
vrp. It should look something like this:
- Copy all the content in
VRPConnector_plugin_directory/themes/mountainsunset/to your theme directories vrp folder
/themes/your_theme_name/vrp/. You should now have all the theme files in the base of the vrp directory. For example:
- Begin customizing your theme files.
