Using the skeleton

The simplest way to install Hereditor theme is to download and install the Hereditor skeleton package:

  1. Download Hereditor skeleton
  2. Unzip the package into your web root folder.
  3. Point your browser at the folder.

Check out the general Grav installation instructions for more details on this process.

It is possible to install just the theme as described below, but page content will need to fit the templates supported by Hereditor theme. It is strongly advised to at least install the Hereditor skeleton package as described above to see the structuration of the theme in action.

Installing the theme

Manual installation

To install the theme, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/themes. Then, rename the folder to hereditor. These files can be found on GitHub.

All the Hereditor theme files should be into the folder /your/site/grav/user/themes/hereditor.

Updating the theme

As development for the Hereditor theme continues, new versions may become available that add additional features and functionality, improve compatibility with newer Grav releases, and generally provide a better user experience.

Manual update

Manually updating Hereditor is pretty simple:

  • Delete the your/site/user/themes/hereditor directory
  • Download the new version of the Hereditor theme from GitHub
  • Unzip the zip file in your/site/user/themes and rename the resulting folder to hereditor
  • Clear the Grav cache using admin panel or following command:
bin/grav clear-cache

Note that any changes made to any of the files listed under this directory will also be removed and replaced by the new set. Any files located elsewhere (for example a YAML settings file placed in user/config/themes) will remain intact.
