Word press Introduction
  • WordPress offers several ways of changing an
    existing theme through the WordPress dashboard,
    the WordPress theme directory, and FTP. When
    using the WordPress dashboard method, you first
    have to download the compressed version of the
    theme you want to install. This method is only
    accessible by those on WordPress.org. On the
    dashboard menu, you need to click on Themes
    gtgtAddNewgtgt Upload Theme. Then, click on Activate
    button to access. You can also use the WordPress
    directory to install themes.

  • WordPress dashboard/ upload option
  • One of the simplest ways of how to install
    WordPress themes is via the WordPress dashboard.
    With this method, you have to download the
    compressed version of the theme you want to
    install.
  • 1. First, you need to log into your WordPress
    website, then go to the dashboard on the left
    side of your screen and find Appearance.
  • 2. Under Appearance, click Themes. In this page
    you will see a number of themes to choose from
    but since you already have a theme click Add New.
  • 3. On the next page, click Upload Theme. You will
    be directed to choose the file of the compressed
    theme. After choosing, click Install Now. This
    will install the theme on your WordPress website
    but you are not done yet.

  • WordPress dashboard/ upload option
  • 4. At the bottom of the success message page,
    look for the Activate button and click it. You
    have now successfully installed a WordPress
    theme.
  • Unfortunately, this form of WordPress theme
    installer is only accessible by those on
    WordPress.org and not WordPress.com. For more
    information on how to migrate to WordPress.org,
    visit their official website or you can find
    other tutorials online.

  • WordPress theme directory with theme search
  • You can also install a theme directly from the
    WordPress directory.
  • 1. Go back to Appearance on the dashboard and
    click Themes
  • 2. Click Add New. Unlike the last time, do not
    click the Upload button. Instead, look at the
    list of themes. There are the featured, popular,
    and latest themes together with a search filter.
    With the search filter, you can identify themes
    depending on certain features you are looking
    for. Just select the features from the list given
    and the WordPress theme installer will give show
    you a list of themes that meet your preference.
    If you already have a specific theme in mind,
    type in the name and WordPress will show you.
  • 3. Hover over the theme you are interested in,
    and you will see three button options Install,
    Preview and Detail. If you want to see the look
    of the theme on your website, click Preview.
    Otherwise, click Install. A success message will
    appear if the process went through.

  • FTP method
  • 1. For those with no idea what FTP means, have
    no fear. FTP refers to File Transfer Protocol,
    which is simply a set of rules that govern how
    computer networks share files. In this case, you
    have to have some basic knowledge of how FTP
    works.
  • 2. When you want to use FTP to install themes, it
    is important to know if your cPanel can offer FTP
    access or if you will have to download a program
    to facilitate the process. Of all the ways to
    install WordPress themes, this is not the most
    beginner-friendly option, but if you follow the
    instructions carefully, it will work.

What you need
  • An FTP software like FireFTP or an FTP access
    through cPanel.
  • WinRAR to extract the compressed files. The
    downloaded WordPress theme usually comes in a
    compressed version. Since we are uploading it
    directly to the theme folder, it is advisable to
    extract before anything else. 1. Go to the .zip
    file and right click it. 2. On the list that
    appears click, Extract to. With this method, you
    will be able to extract the folder you need for
    uploading. 1. With cPanel or whichever FTP tool
    you are using, log in and go to wp-content/themes
    folder then upload the extracted files.
  • Once uploaded, it by comes easily to activate.
    The uploaded theme will be visible from the
    themes option on the dashboard.
  • To activate the theme
  • 1. Go to dashboard and under Appearance, click
    themes, then Add Theme.
  •  2. Hover over the theme you have added, then
    click Activate.There you go with the three
    WordPress theme install guidelines. However, at
    times you may want to delete themes from your
    list.

  • How to delete WordPress themes
  • Deleting or uninstalling themes is very
    straightforward and can be accomplished in two
    ways. It is important to note that when you are
    about to delete a theme, it should not be your
    primary theme. If it is, change it to another one
    before you proceed to delete.
  • The first process involves going to the dashboard
    then Appearance. Click Themes. On the themes
    page, you will see the delete button and then
    click on it.
  • The second way involves your FTP. Log in to your
    FTP manager and locate the folder with the theme
    you want to delete. It is that simple. Depending
    on your preference, you can easily delete a theme
    with both methods.
