Rey theme includes several required and optional plugins. The required plugins are needed as part of the theme’s main functionality and they’re mandatory to be installed and active.

Installing required plugins:

Simply access Rey Theme > Dashboard and only in case any of the 4 mandatory plugins (Rey Core, Kirki, Advanced Custom Fields and One click demo import) are disabled or uninstalled, a new box should be displayed:

Installing other plugins:

If you want a “bird’s eye” view of all plugins we’re using throughout our demos, access Appearance > Install Plugins , and you’ll see all the plugins listed. If you’re not registered though, some plugins cannot be installed here, and instead you need to install them manually.

The optional plugins are recommended upon importing a demo to add certain functionalities. For example, if you want to import a demo, you’d be prompted with this popup:

Popup prompt when importing a demo.

You can deselect any plugin from the list if you don’t want to add it.


Installing plugins manually

To install plugins manually, simply access WordPress backend > Plugins > Add new > Upload plugin, or search WordPress repository plugins.

If you haven’t registered yet, or you don’t want to register, you’ll need to manually install some plugins. You can find them in the main zip file, which you can download from ThemeForest > Download section.


Pre-packaged plugins require Rey to be activated with purchase code.
