Required plugins by theme

Plugins we highly suggest to install and activate that Oxygen requires them to work properly:

  • Advanced Custom Fields (plus ACF related plugins)
  • WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer)
  • WooCommerce (this plugin is needed for the Shop functionality)

Other recommended plugins (based on sections of the theme you want to use):

  • Revolution Slider (to import the sliders from demo-content or if you want to use sliders on your site)
  • Envato Market (once configured this plugin allows you to receive theme updates and update your theme easily from your WordPress dashboard)
  • YITH WooCommerce Wishlist (if you want to have a wishlist on your site).

After you install and activate all the required plugins, then you may want to install theme Demo Content, to do that please read this article One Click Demo Content Import.
