Installation Instructions

Downloading the Theme Zip File

The first thing you will need to do is to download the theme installation zip file.

If you bought the theme on ThemeForest, then you have to download the installable WordPress files only zip file from the ThemeForest download section.

Uploading the Theme

The theme files can be uploaded in two ways:

  1. WordPress Upload (recommended method): When you are logged in your WordPress dashboard go to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme and select the theme installation zip file you downloaded from our Shop or from ThemeForest and click the Install Now button. The theme will be uploaded and installed.
  2. FTP upload: Unzip the contents of the theme installation zip file and using a FTP client, upload the extracted folder on your server to wp-uploads/themes/.
Heads Up! You only need to upload the theme files!
It is very important you upload only the theme files, not the entire package from ThemeForest. You can do this by either only downloading the Theme Files from ThemeForest initially, or making sure you unpackage/unzip the full download to reveal the compressed directory of just theme files.

Activating the Theme

Once your theme is on the server, activate it by clicking the Activate button below the preview image in Appearance » Themes.

Once activated, you will be presented with our installation wizard that will easily guide you through the steps to finalize your theme installation.
