How do I install a new theme

To install your new theme, first, you must have a working WordPress installation. For information on installing WordPress, please see Installing WordPress, from the WordPress Codex.

Once WordPress has been properly setup, you can install your new theme from your WordPress Administration Panel on the WordPress dashboard.

Installation using the WordPress Administration Panel:

  • Download the theme of your choice from your Theme Palace member My-Account to your computer.
  • Log in to the WordPress Administration Panel.
  • Go to Appearance > Themes > Add New.
  • Click on Uploads and browse to find the downloaded file on the desktop where you have it saved.
  • Click on Install Now to install the new theme.
  • Click on Activate.

  1. All hosting has a maximum limit on the size of files uploaded to sites. It sounds like the theme zip that you are uploading exceeds the maximum limit for your hosting. Your options are to manually upgrade the theme using FTP or similar file management tool or to see if your hosting can increase the maximum file size limit.

    I did everything till step ‘brose file’ but I do not have a zip file but I have got a simple folder of theme. How can I brose a folder? what I did wrong?
    anybody!!!!!!!!!!! please, help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Upload takes the .zip (extension) file instead of folder. So make sure you have themename.zip file exists in your local and after you ‘Browse’ to upload, you select this file.

    This file (theme) would then upload to server and activate it.
