Please don’t get WordPress hosting from wordpress.com. This is not compatible with Lay Theme.
If you don’t have webspace already, let me recommend these hosts.
Their cheapest offers will do and they all come with a free domain name. What’s most important, they have 1-click installers for WordPress which will make the installation really easy. Disclosure: I get paid if you get webspace through one of these links.
Install WordPress in your webhost control panel with their 1-click WordPress installer.
Purchase Lay Theme. Find an email by gumroad. Inside there is a button to create your invoice.
Download the .zip file and unzip it. You will get lay.zip which is the theme and other addon zip files like laytheme-carousel.zip.
Log in to your WordPress at “http://yourwebsite.com/wp-admin/”.
You can now enter your license key in “Lay Options”→“License Key”.
If you have not received a license key after purchase please take a look at your spam folder or wait 5 minutes. If you cannot find the key, write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In that email let us know what email address you used for the purchase so we can find your key.
Please note it may take 1-2 days for us to send the key if you haven't received it. However, you can already start working with Lay Theme. Activating your key will just enable getting Lay Theme updates.
Now install the Addons you want to use:
Repeat these steps to install more Addons.
