the thing you download is a zip file a zip file being A computer file whose contents of one or more files are compressed for storage or transmission, often carrying the extension .ZIP.
Extract that zip by
- Right click the “zip document”
- You will see a menu appear
- Click unzip
You will then have a folder of the theme.
Inside that folder will be something LIKE (BUT NOT GUARANTEED TO BE CALLED) theme.zip
now the THEME.ZIP (but not guaranteed to be called theme) is the thing you need
Go to your wordpress admin
Go to the theme option
So you are telling me to “rezip” the file inside the zipfile because i can only install a zip file in wordpress because its only folders inside the zipfile.
Can you explain more in details please? Didnt get you
I have downloaded a themes and when i try install it in worpress it says some problem with some files. or cant find them
Then I tried upload them with filezilla in the themedirectory. thats work but when i go into my worpess i cant find the theme there…
what am i doing wrong?
now i think i now the problem. i am in wordpress.com not the wordpress program. so how can i solve it?
i got to “themes” but here is just a list of avalible themes. i dont find anywere it says “install themes” or “upload”. I have not premium wordpress but i have bought two domains thru wordpress and one theme true themeforest.
But this means that i have to buy cpanel? Because i can not use ftp because wordpress dont allow it or give me an username or password for uploading files
