WordPress Theme Installation

WordPress theme is simply a group of files, called template which are bundled together. So, when it is activated in CMS (Content Management System), determines the look and basic functions of your site. By using professional Themeum theme, you can have your site up and running with a new design – pretty fast. Theme installation is a very easy process. Especially when you’ve chosen the theme you want to use, you’ll need to install it on your WordPress website. You’ll have the following two choices, as you did when adding new plugins:

  • First, extract the downloaded zip file then find the theme pack (exactly in the name of the theme).
  • You can add the theme directly from within the WP Admin, using “Upload Theme” option. From Admin Panel go the following path Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme and select the appropriate zipped theme file, then click Install Now. N.B: Do not upload the exact file you downloaded from our site. Unzip the file first then upload the theme pack that is inside.
  • If your server is not set up properly or you have any problems, you’ll have to extract and then upload the theme manually. Using your favorite FTP client tool upload theme folder into the folder path /wp-content/themes/ on your server and activate it from admin panel.

Note: On your WordPress site, the wp-content/themes folder holds all of your themes. Each theme you install gets its own subfolder. All of the theme’s stylesheet and template files reside inside the theme’s folder.
