Installing the theme

When you are ready to install a theme, you must first upload the theme to your WordPress directory. There are two ways you can install the theme:

  • Using FTP: By using any FTP program of your choice you can upload the non-zipped folder to the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server.
  • Using WordPress: Navigate to Appearance → Themes → Install Themes. Go to upload and select the zipped theme folder and hit install now and theme will be uploaded and installed.

Once you have uploaded the theme, you need to active it. To activate your new theme, go to Appearance  Themes and activate your chosen theme.
