Installing a Theme

There are two ways to Installing a theme – manually with an FTP client, or automatically through the upload feature in the WordPress dashboard. Below you will see both options.

Installing Through the WordPress Dashboard

  1. Log in to your WordPress dashboard and go to Appearance > Themes.
  2. At the top of the page, click the button “Add New.”
  3. Just below the headline, you will see a link that says “Upload” – click that.
  4. Click “Choose File” and find the file from your local machine and then click the “Install Now” button.
  5. When WordPress is finished installing click “activate” or you can “live preview” your website with the new theme before activating.
  6. Once activated your new theme will be the default theme. Further changes can be made by returning to Appearance > Themes as necessary.

Installing With an FTP Client

  1. Download the theme zip file to your local machine and unzip it. You will see a theme folder labeled “basic-church-theme” or possibly something else if you’re unzipping another theme.
  2. Log onto your server through an FTP client, and find your site’s wp-content/themes directory. You will want to transfer the entire theme folder to that directory. If you are using a child theme, you will need to transfer both the “basic-church-theme” theme folder as well as the child theme folder to that directory.
  3. Log in to your WordPress dashboard, and go to Appearance > Themes. There you will see screenshots of the themes that are available for you to use. Click on the theme title (or theme screenshot) for the theme you wish to activate. A preview of the theme will be shown, and then you can click the Activate link in the top right of the preview window. If you wish to use a child theme, make sure you activate the child theme, and not the parent theme.
