I first purchased the Porto Admin template and did not realise it was Admin only.
I then went back and purchased the front end.
I have HTML5 and CSS experience.
I need to know;
Building a standard website, do I really need the Admin template? What is the function of this?
I see it covers user accounts, ect
Do I load Porto front end and admin into the same folder on the server?
Or should Admin files be kept seperate?
A basic installation document and explanation about the interface between Admin and Front End will be very helpful!

Hello, thanks for your purchase.
Please make sure you understand how the Admin works:
* Porto Admin is not a CMS/Editor system ready to create new pages on Porto Front-End template.
What is a HTML Admin Template?
Porto Admin is a HTML template, it’s not fully functional, the theme comes with HTML/CSS/JS files that allows you to integrate with your own system and create your own solution, with server-side scripting languages such as PHP, Ruby on Rails, dotNet, etc… (That integration is responsibility of the buyer). It works the same way for all template under the HTML category on ThemeForest.
How does the integration with the front-end template works?
The main idea of the “admin extension” is to bring some of the features from the Admin to the Front-End, integrating perfectly in terms of design and code.
You can see the preview of the available features from the extension in the following links:
(more features are coming soon).
Porto Admin is a Static HTML5/CSS3 Template, therefore basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is required so that you can edit the templates using a Text Editor like Sublime text, Notepad++ etc. So, it is different from using a CMS since you will have to deal with codes.
All the files that come with the zip package you downloaded can be used as a base/start for your project, the main idea is that you don’t have to start from scratch, just use an existing page from the demo and modify according to your needs, then you can simply upload the files to your server via FTP.
I hope this helps.
