Theme Installation Via WordPress

Install a Theme using WordPress Admin Theme Search.

If you’re looking to install a free WordPress theme from the WordPress.org themes directory, then the easiest way is by using the WordPress admin theme search functionality.

First thing you need to do is login to your WordPress admin area. Next, click on Appearance » Themes..


Based on your search, you will see a single theme or a list of themes that met your criteria. In our case, we searched for the blogging theme Lawyer-Pro. When you see the theme that you want to install, simply bring your mouse on top of the image. This will reveal the install button, preview button, and details button. Go ahead and click on the install button.


WordPress will now install your theme and show you a success message along with the link to activate or live preview.

Click on the activate button, and you’ve successfully installed and activated your WordPress theme.


Install a Theme by using Upload Method from WordPress Admin.

The first method that we covered only allows you to install free themes that are available in the WordPress.org theme’s directory. But what if you want to install a commercial “premium” WordPress theme from companies like ThemeLab, StudioPress, iThemes, etc. Or what if you want to install a custom theme? Well in this case, you would need to install the theme using the upload method from your WordPress admin.

Start by downloading the .zip file of the theme that you purchased from a marketplace or a commercial theme provider.

Next login to your WordPress admin area and click on Appearance » Themes..


Once you are on the themes page, click on the Add New button at the top.

On the next screen, click on the Upload Theme button at the top.


You will be prompted to choose the zip file that you downloaded earlier. Select the file and click Install Now.


Once your theme is installed, you will see a success message along with the link to activate and preview the theme.

Click on the activate button, and you’ve successfully installed and activated your WordPress theme. Depending on the theme, it may add additional settings options that you may need to configure either through the theme customizer or through a separate options panel.

Theme Installation Via FTP.

Installing a WordPress Theme using FTP

First installed and setup your FTP program, connect to your host using FTP. You would need to go to the path (/wp-content/themes/). Once you’re there, simply upload your theme’s folder there.

Remember you must unzip the folders before you upload a theme using FTP. Once you have uploaded the theme, you would need to go to your admin area and click on Appearance » Themes..

You should see the theme that you uploaded listed there. Bring your mouse on top of that theme and click on the activate button and you’ve successfully installed and activated your WordPress theme.
