Theme Installation

Here is a guide how to install a WordPress theme from the WordPress Admin Panel (You can check the video as well which covers theme installation and demo import).

Step 1. Save theme zip file on your computer

After choosing a theme and placing an order from the site, you should receive an email from us with a download link. Open the email, click on the theme zip link and save the file on your computer:

install wp theme 1

Note: How to Stop automatically unzipping downloaded zip files in Mac Safari?

If you use Mac/Safari the zip file could be automatically unzipped after download. Here is how to disable that:

  1. Open Safari
  2. Click Preferences
  3. Under the General tab, uncheck the option Open “safe” files after downloading

Step 2. Log in your WordPress admin panel, from right menu navigate to Appearance -> Themes page

install wp theme 2

Step 3. Click on the ‘Add New’ button

install wp theme 3

Step 4. Click on the ‘Upload Theme’ button

install wp theme 4

Step 5. Click on the ‘Browse’ button

install wp theme 5

Step 6. Choose the theme zip file from your computer (which was downloaded from Step. 1)

install wp theme 6

Note: Sometimes, the theme zip file could exceed the maximum allowed size for the uploaded files, in that cases the following error will be displayed:

The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

Instead of updating php.ini file (sometime you don’t have access to modify it), you can resolve the issue by:

1) Unzip the theme zip file, locally on your computer

2) Open the unzipped theme folder, navigate to YourThemeFolder/images/slider/ and DELETE all of the slider images files (i.e. 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 4.jpg, and 5.jpg).

3) Zip the YourThemeFolder (after the files from step 2) are deleted) to a new file, i.e.

4) Upload the to your WordPress admin

Note: You will be able to re-set the slider images file (after activating your time) by navigating to Admin Panel -> Left Menu -> Appearance -> Customize -> Slider section.

Step 7. Click on ‘Install Now’ button

Step 8. Click on the ‘Activate’ link

That’s All, your new theme is now installed and ready to use 🙂
