Hi lynda, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to install a WordPress theme. Please follow the instructions below, or watch the screencast here.

  1. Download the final zip file from your downloads page.
  2. Unzip the final zip file; you should now have a final download folder.
  3. Do NOT upload the final download folder. Open up the final download folder.
  4. Browse the contents and find the actual theme folder. If you look inside the theme folder, you will see a “style.css” file. This is how you know you have found the theme folder.
  5. Via FTP, upload ONLY the theme folder to your “wp-content/themes” folder
  6. Login to your WordPress admin panel and activate the theme.

If you need any additional assistance, don’t hesitate to ask! Good luck.

Hi again Lynda, according to this tutorial video provided by the author, you can also install the theme by uploading it via WordPress.

In order to do that, you must upload a specific zip file through your WordPress admin panel. This zip file is included inside a folder from the extracted main download file.

Please take a moment to watch the video linked above. If the issue persists, please let us know, and we’ll take it from there. Thanks for being so patient!

For future reference, you can interact directly with the author here. The link takes you to the item’s Comments section, where you can also browse previous posts for troubleshooting.

Simply leave the author a quick comment and he’ll gladly point you in the right direction.

No worries Lynda, let’s try this a different way. I’ll post a step, and you reply. We’ll take it one by one, ok?

Please go to your Downloads page, and download the file again. Extract the downloaded file to your desktop. What files, folders and subfolders were extracted?

No worries, the first step is to extract the downloaded file. Be it through WinRAR or Windows 7, extracting this file has to be done ir order for us to continue.

I apologize for the quality of the videos, but they were among the few available which had audio.

After you’ve successfully extracted the contents of the file, please specify the extracted files, folders and subfolders, so we can proceed.

If you already find the included theme documentation/instructions, then just have a quick read and it should guide you through the rest. If not, please let us know.
