A plugin is an additional component that offers functionality and features beyond a typical WordPress installation. Without them, most of its functionality is not available.
You don't need to buy any additional plugins, Shock Theme requires free plugins which are helpers as most of the functionality is provided by the core of the theme.
After installing and activating the theme you will see notifications at the top recommending the installation of the required plugins. This is important for you to make the most of all available features.
You can follow the notification instructions at the top of the page or go to Appearance » Install Plugins. Just select all plugins, install and activate.
After installing the required plugins, all the theme's features will be available.
The following plugins that are required:
- Shock Core
- One Click Demo Import
- Contact Form 7
As much as these are required plugins, they are optional and can be exchanged for one of your choice, with the exception of Shock Core, which provides the main functionality of the theme.
