How to Install a Premium WordPress Theme
This assumes you’ve downloaded a premium WordPress theme from somewhere on to your computer ready to upload. You may need to extract the ZIP file to find the actual ZIP file you need to upload. You’ll get an error if you try and upload the wrong one.
- Login to your WordPress website dashboard
- Look down the left hand side and select Appearance->Themes
- Click install themes at the top of the page
- Select upload
- Click Choose File
- Find your theme core ZIP file (see note above)
- Click Install Now
- Click Activate
- You’re done
