Getting Started

WordPress Information

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. Below are all the useful links for WordPress information.

Theme Requirements

To use this theme you must be running at least WordPress 3.9, PHP5, mysql 5 or higher. If you use low-end hosting with limited resources (e.g. GoDaddy!), you may experience issues with "one-click" dummy data installation feature.
We recommend that you contact your web hosting service provider to make sure that your server PHP configuration limits are as follows:

max_execution_time 600

memory_limit 128M

post_max_size 32M

upload_max_filesize 32M

If you are running unmanaged dedicated server or VPS, you should check your php.ini file. Alternatively, you can edit .htaccess file in the root of your website and add the following values:

php_value max_execution_time 600

php_value memory_limit

php_value post_max_size 32M

php_value upload_max_filesize 32M

Setting these values will ensure you will not get error messages during the installation. To safeguard your website, please use secure passwords and the latest version of WordPress and plugins.

Here is the list of other recommended web hosting services:

Theme Installation

Unpacking the theme

Before installing the theme, please make sure you unpacked the archive and extracted theme files. Some of the folders names may slightly vary. Treat the screenshot below as an example only.

If you try to install the wrong files, you will get missing styles.css file error. This is the most common error that means you are trying to install an incorrect package.

To install the theme, you must have WordPress installed. Check this link for more information.

Update WordPress: To ensure a positive user experience, we highly recommend updating your WordPress to the latest stable version. This will help utilizing all of the latest features of WordPress.

If you have questions regarding the theme installation, we recommend reading the detailed instruction below.

There are 2 ways to install the theme:

  • via FTP:

    1. Log into your web server with FTP client software.

    2. Unzip the free-church.zip file and ONLY use the extracted /free-church theme folder.

    3. Upload the extracted free-church theme folder into /wp-content/themes folder.

    4. Navigate to the Appearance > Themes tab and activate the theme.

  • via WordPress:

    1. Login to admin panel.

    2. Navigate to Appearance > Themes and click on the Add New button.

    3. Choose Upload theme option. Click on Browse...(Choose file in Safari/Chrome), select the "free-church.zip" and click Install Now button.

    4. After the successful installation, click on Activate or navigate to the Appearance > Themes and click on Activate button to activate the newly installed theme.

    5. Once the theme is activated, you will be prompted to install the required ThemeREX Addons and the other recommended plugins, if any. It might be (but not always should) Instagram Feed or MailChimp for WP (in case they are included), for example.
      All these plugins are included into the theme archive, or can be installed from the WordPress.org repository.
      The theme can function without the recommended plugins. To make your website look more similar to the demo page, you may need to install the recommended plugins and import the demo content.
      However, if you have an existing website, you should be very careful with plugins installation and importing dummy data: this may affect an entire website's content, it's look, behavior and structure. Please refer to the Demo Content section for more details.

    6. As a final step - the new menu item Appearance > ThemeREX Addons should appear in the WordPress Dashboard menu.

Plug-ins Installation

To make the theme look more similar to the demo page, you need to install recommended plugins. Click on Begin installing plugins link.

Alternatively, you can use Appearance > Install Plugins menu that redirects to the plug-ins installation page. Check all the listed plug-ins, select Install option and click on Apply button. Installation may take a few minutes, please be patient and do not refresh the page.

IMPORTANT! Please be aware that there is only one required (mandatory) plug-in for proper theme functioning which is "ThemeREX Addons." The rest of the plug-ins are recommended for installation, but not required.
In case you are running a shared hosting (e.g. GoDaddy) with limited resources, we do recommend to enable only the essential plug-ins (the ones you need) and disable the rest if any. Otherwise, it may significantly increase memory (RAM) consumption, which might lead to unwanted issues.

Available plug-ins:

  • Essential Grid

  • Instagram Feed

  • Mailchimp for WordPress

  • Slider Revolution

  • The Events Calendar

  • ThemeREX Addons

  • ThemeREX Donations

  • WooCommerce

  • WPBakery Visual Composer

SUCCESS! The "Success" message appears after plugins successful installation.

Demo Content

Our theme includes a simple One click dummy data import tool. It allows getting a copy of our demo website in just 1 click.
Nevertheless, it also allows choosing whether to install the "whole demo-site content" or just certain pages, forms, sliders etc.

Before installing demo data, please make sure you have installed all the required plugins, check the Plugins installation section for more information.

IMPORTANT! When installing demo-data, ALL THE EXISTING CONTENTS of your website will be deleted and replaced with the new data! We do recommend to install demo data on fresh WordPress.

To import demo content into a WordPress site, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your site as an administrator.

  2. Navigate to Appearance > Install Dummy Data:
  3. On the page that showed up set the required parameters.
  4. Click on "Start import" button.

    PLEASE NOTE It may take a while for demo data to be copied from our server to your site. It depends significantly on the Internet connection speed between your website and our server. Please wait patiently and do not refresh/leave the page.

  5. SUCCESS! The "Success" message appears after demo data successful installation. Treat the screenshot below as an example. Included plugins and some of the options may vary. IMPORTANT! In case "Dummy Data" installation stuck and demo content does not upload, please contact your hosting provider to make sure that your server configuration meets the Theme Requirements. In case the issue persists, please refer your request to our support department.

Theme Update

This step is required if you received the notification that a new version of the theme is available. You can see this information in Changelog section at the bottom of the item's details page.

IMPORTANT! Before you go ahead with the update make sure you backup your old theme's folder. Download it to your computer locally.

It is a good practice to backup both your files and database regularly and especially before making some serious updates.

Update Option 1. Update using WordPress uploader

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and navigate to "Downloads" tab. Find the theme and download “Installable WordPress file only”.


  2. Log into your WordPress website and go to Appearance > Themes.

  3. Activate a different theme. Delete the previous version of free-church and re-upload the new WordPress Installable files that you have downloaded from ThemeForest during the 1st step.

  4. Once it is uploaded, activate the theme.

  5. Update (if necessary!) the included plugins, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.

Update Option 2. Update using FTP client

  1. Log into your ThemeForest account and get the last version of the theme as described above.

  2. Connect to your server using desktop client software (we recommend CyberDuck and Filezilla).

  3. Change directory to /wp-content/themes.

  4. Remove existing folder with old theme files.

  5. Unpack theme installable files downloaded from ThemeForest and upload to the theme folder.

  6. Update (if necessary!) the included plugins, if you see a notification message prompting about a newer version.

Child Theme

Child theme is for developers willing to make changes to core functions and code. If you are not planning to dig that deep, you can just skip this chapter.

IMPORTANT! If you want to make changes in theme's templates or functions, we recommend to install a child theme and apply changes there. To learn more about that, please visit the WordPress Codex website.

In the theme's package you can find all the necessary files for the child theme. The installation of a child theme is similar to the main theme.

A few recommendations on how to use a Child Theme:

  • Almost all files from the main theme can be replaced in a child theme. It does not concern only .php-files with templates and basic logic, but also both .js, .css files from respective folders and files with images, icons etc.
  • If you want to change some theme functions or to add new ones, you need to create file 'functions.php' in the 'free-church-child' folder, and add all the required functions into it. If our theme contains functions with such names, they will be replaced with yours, if not – your functions will complete our theme logics.

    PLEASE NOTE! If you want to replace some functions from other files (except functions.php), e.g. from _wp_utils.php or _utils.php, we do not recommend you to copy respective files into the child theme, but you should create the respective functions in functions.php in the child theme. This should be done, so that when updating the theme, new functions from these files are available for use.
    As for other files - put out the templates from the folder 'templates', images from the folder 'images' etc. - to make changes copy theme into the folder 'child theme' and make changes there.

Quick start

After the theme activation and demo content import, we are ready to get started with basic theme settings like site title, tagline, logo, favicon etc.

To change your site title and tagline go to Settings > General. Please note, these parameters are important for search engines.

Another great idea may be setting custom permalinks structure to make them more SEO friendly and human-readable. Go to Settings > Permalinks and make changes according to the example below.

Theme Customizer

Now let's navigate to Appearance > Customize in the WP dashboard side menu - the feature which makes theme customization extremely user-friendly and straight-forward, allowing the Administrator to manage the feel and look of the blog website easily from one place.

IMPORTANT! Please be aware that our theme provides a special inheritance hierarchy system for "Theme Options" settings. It means that individual settings of each page may override global settings made with Customizer Panel.

We have integrated a lot of additional options to the default WordPress "Customize" menu, which allows you to flexibly control the appearance and behavior of the whole website as well as individual types of posts, pages and categories.

Moreover, you can see the changes of the front-end right after the alterations - when the needed parameter is selected, without switching from admin to front-end each time. It saves much of your time and lets you customize your website just in several clicks. When you are done with the changes, you should click on "Save and Publish" button at the top of the Customizer's side menu.
There are quite a lot of parameters here, but luckily the majority of them have default values that suit most of users needs. Let's take a closer look at them:

Theme Options settings:

Layouts

The Layout is a storage for pages' fragments. In case there are a few identical fragments on different pages you can create the necessary fragment through WP dashboard menu > Layouts > Add new option and multiply it using the "Layouts" shortcode. Respectively, you can simply apply changes to the shortcode itself; there is no need to make corrections to the same fragment on every other page.
Moreover, with Layouts you can create different custom headers and footers.

Each layout has a Type parameter which can accept values:

  • Header - the layout is applied only to output in the header's area. It appears in the list of available headers.

  • Footer - the layout is applied only to output in the footer's area. It appears in the list of available footers.

  • Custom - the standard layout fragment intended for use with the Layouts shortcode for an insertion in several pages.

Description:

The "Layout" is Visual Composer's row set. There are additional parameters for the vc_row and vc_column shortcodes in order to expand the standard functionality.

Row Settings:

  • Row type - Visual Composer's row. Accepts the following values.

    • Inherit - a standard Visual Composer's row without additional settings.

    • Normal - a "normal" row. Applies to titles. Gives to the shortcodes inserted into it (only for the Layout-related shortcodes) the following features: a standard font, the text with an icon in two lines.

    • Narrow - a "narrow" row. Applies to titles. Gives to the shortcodes inserted into it (only for the Layout-related shortcodes) the following features: a small font, the text with an icon in one line (even for two-line option).

    • Compact - a "compact" row. Applies to titles. Gives to the shortcodes inserted into it (only for the Layout-related shortcodes) the following features: a standard font, the text with an icon in one line (even for two-line option), a cart shortcode (icon with counter).

  • Delimiter - adds a border to the row's bottom.

  • Fix this row when scroll - "fixes" the row when scrolling to a window's top.
    For example, you can fix the main menu at the top of the screen while scrolling or cancel this behavior - then when scrolling, the menu goes up along with the other elements of the page. To fix the main menu, open the needed layout, check this option and save the changes.

  • Hide on tablets - conceals a row entirely on tablets.

  • Hide on mobile devices - conceals a row entirely on mobile devices and for screen resolution less than 768 pixels.

  • Hide on the Frontpage - conceals a row on the page assigned to the "Front page." In case the Blog Feed assigned as the Frontpage - the row does not disappear.

Column Settings:

  • Column alignment - alignment of elements inside a column.

    • Inherit - alignment of elements in a column.

    • Left - all items in a column "nestle" to the left one after another.

    • Center - all items in a column are centered.

    • Right - all items in a column "nestle" to the right one after another.

  • Icons position - allows specifying an icon position inside a shortcode: on the left (by default) or on the right.

Layout-related shortcodes:

There are no limitations which shortcode to use for building a layout. Nevertheless, below is a list of several shortcodes that allow expanding the functionality of header/footer-related layouts.
To manage/create a layout, proceed to the WordPress Dashboard Menu > Layouts section.

  • Layouts: Logo - inserts a logo (any image). In case there is no logo, the theme displays the website's name and its description.

  • Layouts: Iconed text - inserts an icon and two text lines. It is possible to add a URL to the object.

  • Layouts: Cart - in case the WooCommerce plug-in is active, the shortcode displays cart with items quantity (for Narrow and Normal rows) and cart icon with counter only (for Compact rows).

  • Layouts: Currency - in case the WooCommerce and WooCommerce Currency Selector plug-ins are active, the shortcode displays button that allows choosing the currency and displays products prices drop-down.

  • Layouts: Login link - displays the Login link with an icon (if the user is not registered) or the Logout link with an icon.

  • Layouts: Menu - displays selected menu. Specify Menu in the Location field or simply by its name.

    The Layout parameter allows selecting the Menu Style:

    • Default - standard menu with links.

    • Burger - just a button that opens Mobile menu.


    Specify a default behavior for a responsive menu on the "Mobile Menu" tab:

    • Mobile button - whether to add the button instead of this menu upon switching to the mobile version.

    • Add to the mobile menu - whether to add current menu items to the mobile menu. This option allows locating several menus in the header's area.

    • Hide on mobile - whether to hide or display this menu on mobile devices.


  • Layouts: Search form - adds the button or a search box (depending on the Style parameter settings). Available options:

    • Normal - a standard field.

    • Expand - displays the button that expands the field on click.

    • Fullscreen - displays the button that expands the search field to the entire screen.


  • Layouts: Title and Breadcrumbs - displays the title's line for the current row or displays the breadcrumbs.

  • Layouts: Featured image - displays the image assigned to the current post/page. Works for the Single Page only. In case the shortcode does not contain an internal content the image disappears, except for the content itself.
    Shortcode allows displaying featured image in the page's heading only. It also acts as a container and allows including the other shortcodes.

  • Layouts: Language - in case the WPML plug-in is active, the shortcode displays button (drop-down list) that allows choosing the necessary language for the current page. The shortcode has several displaying options.

  • Layouts: Widgets - displays the active/current widgets set (sidebar). The shortcode allows specifying columns quantity for widgets. In case the option has 0 value, the column quantity equals to widgets quantity in the active/current sidebar.

Available Layouts:

Below is a list of layouts that come with this theme.

Slider

By default our theme supports a simple Swiper posts slider. Built-in theme's slider allows you to display Featured images from the posts of any category. You can add a slider to the page using slider shortcode. The settings of this shortcode allow you to select a category, and specify the number of the posts to be displayed. Check the Slider Shortcode section for more information.

Nevertheless, our theme is fully compatible with an extremely powerful and beautiful Revolution Slider plugin. It allows you to create an unlimited number of sliders and set anywhere you want on the page within the necessary widget.

Below are examples of the Revolution Slider's main page back-end and front-end:

Button's Code
[trx_sc_button type="default2" size="large" icon_type="fontawesome" icon_position="left" link="/sermons-page/" title="Learn more"]

To have a better understanding of this plugin's functionality, we highly recommend checking the following links:

The slider can be added through the "Widgets" section as well as through the Visual Composer. Using Widgets allows to place the slider not only in the header of the page (might vary, and depends on how many default sidebars locations are available for each particular theme), where it usually supposed to be.

Below is a short guide on how to configure a Revolution Slider by adding it to one of the widget sets.
Please note that in case you do not have a slider set up (but the Revolution Slider plugin is already installed) you need to create it first and fill with slides by navigating to Slider Revolution tab in the WP Dashboard side menu.

  1. Navigate to the Appearance > Widgets menu item in the WP dashboard side menu.

  2. Locate the Revolution slider widget and drag and drop it to any of the available widget sets. Once it's done specify the necessary parameters and click on "Save" button.
    Check an example below.
  3. Navigate to the page you want your slider to appear on and enable the necessary widget area on the Widgets tab. For example, let's activate Slider in the "Header Widgets" section.
  4. Once it's finished click "Update" and "Preview Changes" buttons to see how it will look on the front-end.
  5. Now the slider is right where you need it.

Shortcodes

Shortcodes is a handy feature in WordPress that allows you to do some pretty incredible things by just inserting a shortcode into a page or post. Using Shortcodes is very straight-forward, just insert one where you want the relevant content to show up.

The theme comes with a number of custom shortcodes allowing you to add the info in a simple way. Moreover, you can use WPBakery Visual Composer to add new elements to the page. Find the theme-related custom shortcodes on the ThemeREX tab in the Visual Composer's Back-end Editor.

Below is a list of the shortcodes available with this theme.

Action

This shortcode inserts "Call to action", event item or columns layout.

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_action type="default" full_height="" actions="%5B%7B%22position%22%3A%22mc%22%2C%22description%22%3A%22A%20movement%20of%20young%20people%20who%5Cn%3Cb%3ELove%20God%2C%20Love%20People%20and%20Influence%20the%20World%3C%2Fb%3E%22%2C%22link%22%3A%22%2Fsermons-page%2F%22%2C%22link_text%22%3A%22click%20here%22%2C%22image%22%3A%2270%22%2C%22bg_image%22%3A%2272%22%2C%22icon_type%22%3A%22fontawesome%22%7D%5D" slider="" title_style="default"]

Anchor

This shortcode inserts an "Anchor" item for the inner page navigation. If you want to create one-page navigation then make sure you checked the "Scroll to Anchor" option in Appearance > ThemeREX Addons > Shortcodes > Anchor. Treat this as an example only!

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_anchor icon_type="fontawesome" type="visible" id="services" title="Services"]

Blogger

This shortcode displays category posts in a wide variety of different ways and styles.

Example:

Plain Code
[vc_row][vc_column][trx_sc_blogger type="default" cat="6" orderby="none" title_style="default" count="2" columns="2"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Button

This shortcode displays buttons.

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_button type="default" size="normal" link="/programs/" title="more about us" subtitle="" align="none" text_align="none" back_image="" icon_type="fontawesome" icon_fontawesome="" image="" icon_position="left" id="" class="" css=".vc_custom_1478698151109{margin-top: 4.75em !important;}"]

Content Area

This shortcode limits content width inside the fullwide rows. Just set the necessary width in the shortcode's options window. In the example below we insert the Button shortcode inside the content area with a limited width.

Example:

Plain Code
[vc_row][vc_column][trx_sc_content type="default" width="1_3" float="center" align="right" padding="none" title="" subtitle="" description="" link="" link_text="" link_image="" id="" class="" css=""]
 
[trx_sc_button type="default" size="normal" link="/programs/" title="more about us" subtitle="" align="none" text_align="none" back_image="" icon_type="fontawesome" icon_fontawesome="" image="" icon_position="left" id="" class="" css=".vc_custom_1478698151109{margin-top: 4.75em !important;}"]
 
[/trx_sc_content][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Donations form

This shortcode displays a standard donations form. It also allows specifying PayPal credentials.

Example:

Plain Code
[vc_row][vc_column][trx_donations_form title="Donations Form"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Donations list

This shortcode displays a list of available donations, in case there are several of them. It allows specifying the necessary donations category, as well as donations IDs.

Example:

Plain Code
[vc_row][vc_column][trx_donations_list orderby="none" count="1" columns="1"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Events

This shortcode displays an events.

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_events type="classic" past="" cat="44" orderby="post_date" slider="" title_style="default" title_align="center" count="3" columns="3"]

Form

This shortcode displays a contact form.

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_form type="default" labels="" title_style="default"]

To customize the form you should edit form template file in any text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. In the wp-content/plugins/trx_addons/shortcodes/form folder you can find form-related files like tpl.default.php, tpl.detailed.php and others. These files are responsible for displaying the form in different styles. Choose the file you need, open it in any text editor, and change HTML code according to your needs.

You can also translate the form fields onto the language you need using .pot file located in the .../wp-content/plugins/trx_addons/languages folder. Please check the Translations section for more information on this matter.

Googlemap

This shortcode displays a Googlemap. Please make sure you entered an API key into the "Google API key" field on the Appearance > ThemeREX Addons > API tab.

Example:

Plain Code
[trx_sc_googlemap style="default" height="588" markers="%5B%7B%22address%22%3A%22350%205th%20Ave%2C%20New%20York%2C%20NY%2010118%22%2C%22icon%22%3A%2274%22%7D%5D" title_style="default" title_align="center"][/trx_sc_googlemap]

Icons

Plugins & Features

This section contains a brief description, as well as references, to some of the plug-ins available with this theme.

ThemeREX Addons

As a free addition to this theme, we have included a unique "ThemeREX Addons" plugin. Once activated, it allows expanding the options of the theme noticeably. These add-ons allow you to enable/disable widgets, shortcodes, show custom post types, set links to your social profiles as well as some advanced theme-specific settings.

After plugin's installation, the "ThemeREX Addons" menu item should appear in the "Appearance" tab in WordPress dashboard menu panel.

Below is a brief description of all the available settings.

General

Settings of this tab define the general behavior of your theme.

  • Debug Mode - Enable debug functions and theme profiler output.

    IMPORTANT! There is a separate file for each script snippet .js and style related .css data. For better theme performance the system automatically re-compiles/re-merges these files into a single .js/.css related one after every "Save Options" button click in Customizer (Appearance > Customize) and ThemeREX Addons settings (Appearance > ThemeREX Addons).
    In case the "Debug Mode" is on, the theme does not run the re-compile/re-merge mode, so each and every file loads separately. That is why we do recommend to turn this mode on only if you need to edit/customize the source script and style related files. Please do not edit the following (re-merged) files: trx_addons.css, trx_addons.js, __colors.css, __styles.css, __scripts.js.

  • Move styles to the head - This is a W3C validation setting. It captures page's output and moves all the "style" tags from the body into the head. We suggest leaving it intact.

  • Image dimensions - Which dimensions will be used for the uploaded images: "Original" or "Retina ready" (twice enlarged).

  • Quality for cropped images - Specify range of quality (1-100) to save cropped images.

    PLEASE NOTE If you change the images quality do not forget to regenerate the thumbnails again.

  • Show page preloader - Select or upload page preloader image for your site.

  • Add "Scroll to Top" - Add "Scroll to Top" button when page is scrolled.

  • Animate inner links - This setting adds "smooth scroll" effect to the inner page links.

  • Popup Engine - Choose one of two scripts to display your popup images.

  • Use menu cache - The menu caching option is responsible for increasing the overall theme's performance.

  • Breadcrumbs nestings - Specify the necessary nesting level for breadcrumbs.

  • Login via AJAX - Define whether to use AJAX Login or direct link on the WP Login Page.

  • Login via social profiles - Add the necessary code snippet/shortcode from the Social Login Plugin.

  • Notify about new registration - Define the person who receives a registration notification message.

CPT

CPT stands for Custom Post Types. Settings of this tab allow managing output styles for pages such as Team, Services, Sermons.

API

Shortcodes

Here you can define whether you want to use the Anchor shortcode and specify hover effects or not.

Theme Specific

Settings of this section override the default theme's grid classes, and recreate layouts. We recommend leaving these settings intact.

"Create Layouts" setting is responsible for recreating the set of predefined layouts. It might become useful in case there are no layouts available after theme installation.

This plugin acts as a bridge between your WordPress site and your MailChimp account, connecting the two together.

To make your customization even easier we have added the Visual Composer to this theme. Before you start, please check these VC related tutorials. They will give you a basic understanding of how to build a page properly.

Translations

We recommend using Poedit software for translation-related purposes.

To translate the theme to your language, please follow these steps:

  1. Download and install Poedit software.
  2. Navigate to the theme/.../languages/ folder and locate .pot file. Copy it to your desktop for editing.
  3. Double click on the .pot file. In the Poedit window click on the "Create New Translation" button, choose the necessary language of the translation from the dropdown list and click "OK."
  4. Now select the constant text string you need to translate from the "Source text - English" field and type in the necessary translation into the "Translation" field.
    You can translate as much as you want, just go through the file and click on each string in "Poedit" and add your translation.
  5. Next, you have to save the changes to your .po file using the naming convention based on the language code (e.g. pt for Portuguese) followed by the country code (for instance _BR for Brazil). To do that click on the "sheet" icon (you can also use hotkeys CMD+Shift+S in OS X or Win+S in Windows) and type in the name according to the screenshot below.
    The first lower-case letters define the language, whereas the second upper-case letter defines the country. In most cases, the language and country are the same, like “de_DE” for Germany.
    However, there is a difference for languages like English or Portuguese, which are spoken in several countries natively. In this case, the difference is in the first and second letter pairs; for the UK, the code would be en_GB, whereas the en_US stands for the USA. If you are not familiar with the codes for your native language and country, then visit the GNU website. See Language Codes and Country Codes for the lists of codes.
    Please note, if you use the wrong naming convention WordPress can not process your translation.
  6. When saving your .po file, Poedit automatically creates a new .mo file, with the same naming convention. According to the example above, the file would be called pt_BR.mo.
  7. Upload the .po and .mo files you just created to the .../languages folder. Make sure these files are in the same directory as the default.pot one.

  8. OPTIONAL! Some themes are using ThemeREX Addons plug-in, so most of the translation are done in language files of this plug-in in the .../wp-content/plugins/trx_addons/languages directory. There is also a trx_addons.pot file in this directory.
    Generate the .po and .mo files according to your language. See the file names on the example below:
    trx_addons-pt_BR.po, trx_addons-pt_BR.mo.
    Make sure that the language of your files is the same as in your Wordpress admin panel > Settings > General Settings section.

In case you still have questions on how to use Poedit, please check the following resources:
