Installing a WordPress Theme
Some people might think “Do we need a tutorial for installing the theme?? Thats too damn easy!!!”.
Well then this article is for the rest of us, so lets begin.
Initially goto: Appearance->Themes and then click on Add New button.
Note: You may not be able to see the Add New button if you have MultiSite activated in your WordPress
After you have done that there are two alternatives for installing a theme which are:
First Alternative: Installing theme from the WordPress repository
You can see a list of themes which are trending in the wordpress.org repository and choose one of them and click on Install or you can search for a theme in the repository from the search box.
Second Alternative: Uploading theme from your local drive.
After the purchase our theme you will be able to download a .zip file of the theme.
- Upload that file by clicking on the Upload Theme and browsing to its location and hit Install Now.
- Now the WordPress will begin the theme installing process and all you need to do is Activate the theme after the completion of the process.
Note: Some browsers like Safari automatically unzips the downloaded .zip file so you should compress the file back to the .zip format using various applications like WinRaR,7-Zip etc before uploading.
Walla!! Its all done, just visit the frontend and checkout your new theme.
