Setup

You will need to setup a local database and create a virtual host to point at the website directory. It's suggested to use the domain local.votedenton.org.

First, start by copying the local-config-sample.php file in the website directory and pasting it without the -sample in the same directory.

Change the database credentials in local-config.php to point to your local database.

Install WordPress by visiting the local website.

Configure WordPress after installation:

  1. Change the Theme to "Vote Denton".
  2. Create a "Home" page and change its Page Template to "Home".
  3. Go to Settings > Reading and set the static front page to "Home".
  4. Activate all necessary plugins (namely, WP-LESS)

Make all style changes in the style.less file which will compile to CSS on each page load if the file has changed.
