Today I am going to share a guide with you so that you can know how to install WordPress theme from WordPress dashboard. So let's start this tutorial.
How to install theme from wordpress dashboard?
You can always search for the WordPress theme directly from the WordPress theme repo, or you can download the .zip file and then install it. I am a huge fan of premium WordPress themes, as they offer better features and functionality than free theme and most free WordPress theme and premium theme club allow you to download the .zip file of the theme and you can install it. So to make things easy, I assume that you have downloaded the theme's .zip file.
So once you have downloaded the WordPress theme,Login to your WordPress dashboard. Click Appearance> Theme. Click on the install theme.
On the next page, click on upload and it will take you to the upload theme screen. Simply click on browse, and locate the .zip file of the WordPress theme you downloaded. Select and click on Install now. It will take a minute or two, depending on the size of your theme and your internet speed. Once this is done, it will show you the installed theme screen.
Before activating the theme, you can click on "Live Preview" so that you know what it looks like before activating it for everyone. Once you are satisfied with the look and feel it, you can click on Activate. Your newly installed theme will go live for public. If you want to make some changes before live the theme on your site, you can use Theme test drive wordpress plugin.
Another way to install a WordPress theme is to upload it directly via FTP (File Transfer Protocol), but it is a long process and is useful when you do not have a .zip file of your theme.Soon i I will write a tutorial on how to manually install a WordPress theme via FTP.
I hope this tutorial will help beginners, one step closer to WordPress.
