Installation

  1. Download and install the latest version of WordPress on your domain. See wordpress.org for info.
  2. Download the Medical Theme from your members account downloads area.
  3. Unzip the downloaded file and upload the interior folder without the version number to your themes folder (wp-content/themes/). I recommended using FTP software such as filezilla.
  4. You can also upload the theme by going to your Appearance->Theme section and add new theme.
  5. Go to your appearance section in your WordPress admin and click themes. Look for the Medical Clinic Theme and activate it.

                    </div>
                    <div class="col-half">
                       [email* email-119 placeholder "EMAIL"]
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-half">
                      
                    </div>
                    <div class="col-half">
                        [date* date-622  class:unstyled placeholder "Date"]
                    </div>
