Setting up a WordPress theme is less complicated as many people believe it is. The thing that tends to befuddle people is that there are two different methods you may use when seeking to figure out how to put in WordPress theme. WordPress themes
Physically install WordPress plugins
First of all I will go over how to install WordPress theme manually to acquire familiar with the WordPress framework.
To install a WordPress theme manually you will need to download the theme, which I was in case you have done by now.
You will also need to unzip the WordPress extensions to a folder on your hard drive (try not to forget where you put it).
Right now you will need to fire up your FILE TRANSFER PROTOCOL program and FTP to your site.
At this point you will want to demand themes file by see the ‘wp-content’ file and then a ‘themes’ directory.
Once you are in the themes folder on your web site, you will want to find their way to the theme you unzipped on your hard drive (you did bear in mind where you put it, didn’t you? ).
You will then need to upload the theme on your hard drive (folder and all) to the themes folder on your web site.
After everything FTP’d out you will want to get back to your browser and login your WordPress blog on your site.
You will then see a ‘Appearance’ option on the left side menu and select the ‘Themes’ option.
At this point you should be able to see your theme listed as an option. If not then you probably uploaded it as a folder within a folder and will need to double check it.
You must now be able to preview and then activate your theme by selecting the appropriate options listed under your theme.
Automatically install WordPress theme
If you are lazy with this problem you will want to let WordPress do all the work for you. Right now we will learn how to set up WordPress theme by letting WordPress get down and filthy.
To put WordPress to work you will need to first log into your blog.
You can find their way to the ‘Appearance’ option on the left of the menu.
Then you are going to click on the ‘Themes’ option located under the ‘Appearance’ tab.
Once you are under the ‘Themes’ section, you will see ‘Manage Themes’ at the top of the page. Up coming to the ‘Manage Themes’ tab you will see the ‘Install Themes’ tabs that may probably be grayed out. You should click on the ‘Install Themes’ case to make it the active tab.
Now you have a couple options here.
Option one is that you don’t have a style in mind yet and want to hunt for one. In this circumstance you will select the options you are looking for and click Search. Once you have the results up on display screen you can scroll through until you find the one which you like and wish to use. At this point it is merely a matter of previewing the theme to make certain it is actually you are looking for and if it is, then you can click Install and enable WordPress do its magic.
Choice two assumes that you have got already downloaded the theme you want to use. In such a case you will want to select the Upload option that you will find available under the ‘Install Themes’ tab. After getting chosen the Upload option you will want to search to the theme data file you downloaded and choose it. (Yes WordPress will even unzip the apply for you. How’s that for service! ) Then simply it is merely a subject of clicking ‘Install Now’ and let WordPress go to town.
I choose to leave WordPress do the dirty work and install the themes personally. But it is a good idea to get familiar with FTP’ing to your site and taking a look at how things are structured within WordPress. That way if you have to revise, alter or repair your WordPress plugins you will know how to find your way throughout the WordPress world.
Once you know how to install WordPress theme you will question why it appeared like such a complicated job. You can even find yourself designing and making your own WordPress themes.
