The Accende WordPress Church Theme is a powerful theme developed especially for church and spiritual websites, but due to the large number of custom features, it can be used as well for Artist Portfolios and even Business Websites.

The design is clean and the colors are warm and calm, giving the Accende Church Theme a vintage look and feel.

Customizing your website is very easy, due to the extensive Administration panel, the custom Widgets, and as well due to the very detailed Documentation.

Please note: this theme requires at least WordPress v 3.2+ and PHP 5.2. Please update your WordPress installation & PHP version before installing the theme.

Version 1.3.4 – 2013 08 02

This Theme is compatible with WordPress 3.6!

Upgrading to WordPress 3.6

Before you upgrade to WP 3.6, please download the new theme files and make sure to back up your old files, in case you`ve made custom changes.
In case you update to WP 3.6 and receive an error, please copy this file to your server and overwrite: /accende/lib/functions-theme.php – this is the only file modified so that the theme is compatible to WP 3.6!
Also, please consult the changelog.txt file to see other updated & changed files.

Theme Options Panel

We have created a complex but easy to use Theme Administration Panel. Here you can define dozens of settings, including thumbnail sizes, number of portfolio items, etc.

Theme Color Styles

We`ve included 5 color styles for you to choose from:

  • Night Blue ( the default color style – dark blue )
  • Wine Red ( dark red )
  • Moss Green ( dark green )
  • Coffee ( dark brown )
  • Lavender Blush ( grey )

Dashboard Custom Widget

We`ve created a custom Dashboard Widget with links to the documentation and several written and video online learning resources, so you can access everything right from your Dashboard. This also helps you give the client an invaluable source of documentation, which he will hopefully consult, before contacting you.
