Install a WordPress Theme

Bought your theme, ready to install it. Just a few clicks, upload, activate, you’re all set.

You have your brand new free or premium theme, you hopefully have a zip file and you need to get that installed. It’s just a matter of finding the right page in WordPress, clicking upload and activating. Ready?

Do you have your zip file of the theme? You're more than halfway there.

    Hi Bradley,

    I just uploaded world press and now I have moved onto uploading the themes. Where do I find the canvas themes that you recommend as I did not get them from godaddy when I bought the url. I searched for canvas and Toolbox, Sunspot and Fanoe show up – are any of these what I should use?

      Hi Paula,
      You’ll want to purchase Canvas over at WOO Themes. Then download it and upload it into your WordPress installation and you’ll be all set. Then you’ll also want a child theme. For now, I have two on offer: Clean Canvas and Kaapstad.
