Theme Installation

Here is a guide how to install a WordPress theme from the WordPress Admin Panel.

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.

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

Step 3

. Click on the ‘Add New’ button

Step 4

. Click on the ‘Upload Theme’ button

Step 5

. Click on the ‘Browse’ button

Step 6

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

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 🙂
