now then you don’t know how to install it perfectly on your WordPress site. So today I going to tell you How
to Install WordPress Theme on your website.
So let’s start…
Installing a WordPress theme
Installing a WordPress theme is not as complicated as many people think it is. The thing that tends to
confuse people is that there are two different methods you can use when trying to figure out how to install
Manually install WordPress theme
First We will tell you how to install WordPress theme manually on your website to help you get familiar
with the WordPress structure.
For manually installation you will need to download the theme first, which I am assuming that you have
already done that.
You will also need to unzip the WordPress theme to a folder on your hard drive (try not to forget where you put
it). Now you will need to fire up your FTP program and FTP to your site.
At this point you will want to navigate to the themes folder by going to the 'wp-content' folder and then the
Once you are in the themes folder on your web site, you will want to navigate to the theme you unzipped on your hard drive (you did remember where you put it, didn't you?).
You will then need to upload the theme on your hard drive (folder and all) to the themes folder on your web site.
After your all FTP'd out you will want to go back to your browser and log into your WordPress blog on your site.
You will then go to the 'Appearance' option on the left side menu and select the 'Themes' option.
At this point you should be able to see your theme listed as an option. If not then you probably uploaded it as a folder within a folder and will need to double check it.
Now you are able to preview site theme and now activate your theme by selecting the appropriate options listed under your theme.
Automatically install WordPress theme
If you are lazy like me you will want to let WordPress do all the work for you. Now we will learn how to install
WordPress theme automatically by letting WordPress get down and dirty.
To put WordPress to work you will need to first log into your blog.
You will navigate to the 'Appearance' option on the left side of the menu.
Next you are going to click on the 'Themes' option located under the 'Appearance' tab.
Once you are under the 'Themes' section, you will see 'Manage Themes' at the top of the page. Next to the
'Manage Themes' tab you will see the 'Install Themes' tab which will probably be grayed out. You will wantto
click on the 'Install Themes' tab to make it the active tab. Now you have a couple options here.
Option one is that you don't have a theme in mind yet and want to search for one. In this case you will select
the options you are looking for and click Search.
Once you have the results up on screen you can scroll through until you find one that you like and want to use.
At this point it is only a matter of previewing the theme to make sure it is what you are looking for and if it is,
then you can click Install and let WordPress do its magic.
Option two assumes that you have already downloaded the theme you want to use. In this case you will want to
select the Upload option that you will find available under the 'Install Themes' tab.
Once you have selected the Upload option you will want to browse to the theme file you downloaded and
select it. (Yes WordPress will even unzip the file for you.
How's that for service, Then it is just a matter of clicking 'Install Now' and let WordPress go to town.
But it is a good idea to get familiar with FTP'ing to your site and taking a look at how things are structured
within WordPress. That way if you have to edit, alter or repair your WordPress theme you will know how to
find your way around the WordPress world.
Once you know how to install WordPress theme you will wonder why it seemed like such a complicated task.
