File Structure

The template package you have downloaded consists of several folders. Let's see what each folder contains:

    Screenshots -contains template screenshot. Not for production.
  • theme -contains wordpress theme files
  • "vw-food-farm-pro.zip" -this folder contains all the necessary files for the theme.
  • "license.txt" -contains license details
