Installing a Theme

You can install your theme via WordPress theme uploader or FTP.

Note: We recommend using a child theme if you are going to customize your theme files, as this will make it easier to update your parent theme.

via WordPress Theme

  1. Download the latest version of the theme from ThemeForest account by going to Downloads tab.
  2. Navigate to Appearance → Themes in your WordPress admin dashboard.
  3. Click the Add New button at the top of the page and go for the Upload Themes option.
  4. For the file upload, pick Theme Files / in the theme package downloaded from ThemeForest and click Install Now.
  5. Click Activate once the upload has finished and you are ready for the next steps.

via FTP

You can manually install your theme files via FTP if you are an advanced user.

  1. Log into your hosting space via a FTP software like FileZilla.
  2. Retrieve the ZIP file from your new ThemeForest download and extract the file.
  3. Then simply drag and drop the new theme folder into wp-content → themes location using FTP application.
  4. To Activate the theme go to your site WordPress Dashboard then to Appearance → Themes.
