How to install your new WordPress theme?

There are multiple ways to add a new theme to your WordPress installation, but we think this is by far the easiest way to accomplish it. You can install a new theme using the Administration Panel, which should be familiar to you if you have ever used WordPress before.

Adding New Themes using the Administration Panel

  1. Log in to the WordPress Administration Panel.
  2. Select the Appearance panel, then Themes.
  3. Select Add New.
  4. Use the Upload link in the top links row to upload a zipped copy of a Theme that you have previously downloaded to your machine.
  5. After the upload is complete, you can “Activate” it selecting Appearance -> Themes -> Activate. Activate button appears when you hover your mouse pointer on top of the theme preview image.
