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. I did that, but it won’t upload, instead i get this message: 413 Request Entity Too Large

  2. 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.

  8. @NDAVIS43521,

    It could have cause when you make a purchase before you register / login Theme Palace account which we called it a “Guest Checkout” . Please confirm this case.

    There are two ways you can download the theme

    1. You can download the theme from the ‘Thank You’ screen or the link provided in your purchase receipt email sent to you.

    2. You can also log into your Theme Palace My Account simply ( to view your purchase details, and download your theme or its updates.

    But for both of these conditions, make sure you have had purchased the theme after signing up and ‘loggin in’ to your a/c in Theme Palace.
