How to activate the theme

In order to activate the Newspaper theme, you have to use the Envato Purchase Code. We are sorry that the theme requires this additional step, but we implemented this feature to better serve our paying customers.

When you activate the Newspaper theme, you should know that:

  • The theme will not overwrite any settings;
  • The theme doesn’t record any of your personal information;
  • All warnings will go away and you will have an activated product.
  • You will have full access to all of the theme functionality.

The same purchase key can be used to activate your development copies and also the live version of your theme. Using test platforms is allowed with the same envato key. 

The theme activation message looks like this:

  • Step 5: Create a forum account adding a username, email, password and confirmation details.

Note: If you already have a forum user created, the last prompt will not be available.

If you own multiple copies of the theme, you do not need to create multiple forum accounts as you can add your extra envato keys to your existing account and the theme activation will skip the forum registration requirement.
