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
Upload theme.zip

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.
