First thing you need to do is login to your WordPress admin area. Next, click on Appearance » Themes..


Once you are on the themes page, click on the Add New button at the top.


Based on your search, you will see a single theme or a list of themes that met your criteria.

WordPress will now install your theme and show you a success message along with the link to activate or live preview.

Install a Theme by using Upload Method from WordPress Admin.

The first method that we covered only allows you to install free themes that are available in the WordPress.org theme’s directory. But what if you want to install a commercial “premium” WordPress theme from companies like ThemeLab, StudioPress, iThemes, etc. Or what if you want to install a custom theme? Well in this case, you would need to install the theme using the upload method from your WordPress admin.

Start by downloading the .zip file of the theme that you purchased from a marketplace or a commercial theme provider.

Next login to your WordPress admin area and click on Appearance » Themes..


Once you are on the themes page, click on the Add New button at the top.

Once your theme is installed, you will see a success message along with the link to activate and preview the theme.

Click on the activate button, and you’ve successfully installed and activated your WordPress theme. Depending on the theme, it may add additional settings options that you may need to configure either through the theme customizer or through a separate options panel.

Theme Installation Via FTP.

Installing a WordPress Theme using FTP

First install and setup your FTP program, connect to your host using FTP. You would need to go to the path (/wp-content/themes/). Once you’re there, simply upload your theme’s folder there.
