Injected Code Requirements

Unlike Page Builder in which the buider content can be automatically rendered by filtering data inside the_content() method (since the function is the mandasory requirement to display content of any page or post by WordPress). The snippets to render Header and Footer Builder must be manually injected because different themes have different html structures and it might happen you want to use the default header and footer of your theme. Following is the instruction to inject the code to render Header and Footer.

Header Render Code

In order to display and build headers, the bellow code should be pasted on the very top of your site html structure, right after where the body open tag. Normally, the place is in the header.php file of your Theme.

if (function_exists('kong_header_builder_render')) {
kong_header_builder_render();
}

For example,

<head>
<?php wp_head(); ?>
</head>
<body>
<?php
if (function_exists('kong_header_builder_render')) {
kong_header_builder_render();
}
?>
...

In order to display and build footers, the bellow code should be pasted on the very end of your site html structure, right after the body end tag. Normally, the place is in the footer.php file of your Theme.

if (function_exists('kong_footer_builder_render')) {
kong_footer_builder_render();
}

For example,

....
<?php
if (function_exists('kong_footer_builder_render')) {
kong_footer_builder_render();
}
?>
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
</body>
</html>

Typography Wrap Class

This wrapped class .kong-entry is not strictly required unless you want to use the configuration of the Live Customizer for headings.

<div class="kong-entry"><?php the_content(); ?></div>

Software Requirements

For security and performance reasons, it is highly recommended to use the latest versions of WordPress and PHP.

SoftwareRequired Version
WordPress4.7+ (recommended latest)
PHP5.3+ (recommended PHP 7+)
MySQL5.6+

Many issues you may run into such as; white screen, plugin fall to activate, unable to upload files, video, images, and other similar issues are all related to low PHP configuration limits. The solution is to increase the PHP limits. You can do this on your own, or contact your web host and ask them to increase those limits to a minimum as follows.

max_execution_time 180
memory_limit 128M
post_max_size 64M
upload_max_filesize 64M
max_input_time 60
