					   Super Affiliate Pro Theme Instructions
The Super Affiliate theme is easy to use, all you need to do is make sure you follow
these instructions carefully.

If you’re a newbie to blogging and using Wordpress, I strongly recommend that you
also try the “Super Affiliate Blogger” system for a complete step-by-step guide to
making money with blogs and affiliate programs:

Please note that this theme is only for self-hosted Wordpress blogs, and
not for free Wordpress.com blogs or even Blogspot.com blogs.
1) Upload The Entire Theme To Your Web Host




Upload the entire “superaffiliatepro” folder using your FTP program to your
Wordpress themes folder, under wp-content/themes like the this:

YourDomain.com
     --> www
         --> wp-content
                --> themes

Common Mistakes!

Many people make the mistake of uploading the folder before the actual theme’s
folder. The correct directory of the theme once uploaded should look like this:

wp-content/themes/superaffiliatepro/

and not:

wp-content/themes/SuperAffiliatePro/superaffiliatepro/

Uploading the theme this way will cause many problems when using it, the most
common being unable to post comments.

If you don’t a web hosting account yet, try out recommendation here:

If you don’t have an FTP program, you can download FileZilla for free here:

3) Editing The Theme Options Page
You can access your theme options from your Wordpress Dashboard > Design >
Theme Options.

Here you can enter your Feedburner and Clickbank ID to help you build up your
RSS and Email readership as well as monetize your blog with Clickbank products.

You can also enter your 3-way links inline code here. Refer to the Super Affiliate
Blogger guide if you do not know what this is.



To get your 3-way links inline code:

   1. Log into your account. (www.easywordpress.com/go/3waylinks)

   2. After adding your domain, click on the “links page” of your domain in your
      “My Domain” page like the screenshot
      below:




   3. Ignore the [PHP FILE] section and skip to the [PHP CODE]. Select and
      copy everything inside the text box.
  4. Paste it in the 3-way links inline code box in your Themes Options.



To get your Feedburner Email ID:

  1. Log into your Feedburner account.




  2. Click on your feed, and click on Publicize.


  3. Scroll down and you should be able to see the option “Email Subscriptions”
     on the left sidebar.




  4. You might have to activate your Email Subscriptions if you haven’t done so
     yet. But once you’ve done that, scroll down to your “Preview Subscription
     Link” area where there is a text box with a bunch of codes in it.
   5. Look for your Email Subscriptions ID in the text box like in the following
      screenshot:




Once you’ve entered all the relevant information, just click “Save” and you’re good
to go.

Here is an example of a completed Themes Options changes for you to refer in case
you got mixed up:




4) Setting your Archives and 3-Way Links page

Go to Write > Pages on your Wordpress Dashboard.

Scroll all the way down to your “Page Template” and select either “Archive Page”
for creating archives or “3 Way Link” for your 3-Way Links page.
Once you’ve published, the pages should automatically function.

NOTE: For 3-Way Links page, make sure that your permalinks is the same as what
you’ve submitted in your 3-Way Links account and make sure that you do not add
any other content in that page.




5) Create Your Own Header With Photoshop
You can use the default header we’ve provided, but we strongly encourage you to
create your own header image to these specifications:

      Width: 840
      Height: 110
      Type: JPEG
      File Name: header.jpg

Once you’ve created your header image, you can replace the default image by
replacing the existing header.jpg file in the theme’s images folder.
We’ve also provided the header in .psd format, which you can edit with Adobe
Photoshop. If you do not have Photoshop, you can download GIMP for free online,
which can also be used to open and edit PSD documents.

      (NOTE: Some themes have only a placeholder image (blank image), so a
      Photoshop file is not provided. In such cases you can create any image you
      want according to the instructions above, name it “header.jpg” and upload it
      to your blog”

Common Mistakes

Unless you know what you are doing, please follow the above given format
exactly. Many people often use a different width, height, file type and file name,
resulting in partially or completely missing header.

You need to save your new logo.jpg into your super-affiliate/images folder.

If your header is missing even after uploading it, delete your entire super-adsense
theme from your blog. Re-save your new header.jpg into the theme’s image folder
on your PC and re-upload it again.
No Photoshop?

Hey.. you can get Gimp which is just as good, plus it’s free:
http://www.gimp.org


6) Setting Up Your Normal Sidebar And Alternate Sidebar

Once you have activated your Super Afilliate theme, you can set up your main
sidebar and alternate sibebars from within your Design -> Widgets.




As with the older versions of Wordpress, you can add, edit, remove and rearrange
your sidebar by click & drag.


7) Specifying Your Page Type

You can specify the type of page you want to create when writing a new page
within Wordpress. By selecting the Page Template drop down menu, you will see 3
different types of template:

   1. Default template – This is the default template like the rest of your blog and
      uses the first Sidebar.

   2. Exit page – This is similar to the default template, with the only exception
      that it uses the alternate Sidebar 2 instead.

   3. Landing page – This is the landing page layout where there are no sidebars
      available and is using the alternate custom navigation instead of the default
      Wordpress pages.
                 Congratulations, You Ready To Go!
