Liga Theme / template documentation version 1.0
First of all, Thank you so much for purchasing this template and for being my loyal customer.
This documentation is to help you regarding each step of customization. Please go through the documentation carefully to understand how this template is made and how to edit this properly.
If you plan to make some modifications to the code of the theme, will be better to make them via the child theme. If you make modifications directly to the parent theme, you will lose them when the theme is updated. When you make modifications inside of the child theme instead, you can update the parent theme without losing any change you have made.
Child Theme you’ll find in a liga-child.zip, which is included in a main downloaded package.
More information about child themes you can find in WordPress Codex.
To install this theme, you must have a working version of WordPress already installed.
For information regarding installing the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex

The Liga theme defines new image sizes, but the problem is that these new image sizes are only applied on the images you upload after activating the theme. To solve this problem you need to generate new sizes for all previously uploaded images. You can use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.
