(Locked) How to Install Theme

Hi, sorry for the lame question, but I’d just like to know how one goes about installing the Caulk them for Wordpress? I have my own domain and am hosting via Blue Host…

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Upload it to server through the WordPress Admin. Appearance>Themes>New

I’m sorry, I believe I may have got this sorted…Thank you so much for your prompt help :slight_smile:

I keep getting error messages. Is there another way I could install the new theme? I just tried Appearance>Install> Upload, but to no avail. The file was zipped and still no go…

download the file from themeforest unzip it there should be a few folders look for the one that is the name of the theme and upload it to your wp-content/themes folder with an ftp program. go to your wordpress admin panel and activate it

Al done! Thanks so much!

Hi, I’m having the same problem, but earlier in the process. I’ve uploaded the entire Factorybox file via FTP, but I still don’t see it available. Is it possible the file isn’t in the wp-themes folder? Unfortunately, I have no idea where the wp-themes folder is. Please excuse my n00bishness.

The actual theme zip is inside the full zip that you downloaded. You’ll need to either install the theme zip via the WordPress installer, or unzip that directory as well into your {wordpress}/wp-content/themes folder

Good Morning. Yesterday Dynamix buy the template you call and I have no knowledge http://themeforest.net or design or programming. I really thought that when you install the template on my server appear as I saw before buying it, like this: themeforest.net/item/dynamix-premium-wordpress-theme/full_screen_preview/113901 and you could be changing, titles, texts and images gradually and are in the thousands of free templates that are in the network. I really feel dececiopnado to upload the template to my server and approaches ta realize that assemble empty and is extremely complicated and time consuming, I get angry mcucha this situation, because I invested 40 dollars to have a website quickly and easy and it is extremely complicated. And the worst part is that I’m from Venezuela, where there is a restriction of consumer dollars annually only 400 dollars, 40 dollars so those hurt even more than the majority of those who buy this template. Thank you very much for the help you can give me URGENTLY

I’m afraid it is not clear what your problem is exactly… How can we help you?

We purchased the Light of Peace theme. Downloaded the zipped folder, unzipped, and now see a folder called “Light Of Peace”. Inside of it we see “Help”, “PSD” and “Site”.

We are not sure where to go from there? I don’t see a style sheet or the php files normally found in a wordpress theme. Can you please provide us with specific instructions for installing this theme thru the FTP.

Thanks!

HI,
Assuming you have Wordpress installed on your domain (if not : http://wordpress.org/download/)

Once that is installed - set it up by visiting your domain and filling out the necessary info.

To install the theme: You can do this in Admin > Appearance > theme > and upload the “theme” or “Site” folder from your download - this must be a zip file to do this.

OR

Better in your FTP:
Wordpress > this will have files in it including "Wp-Content"
In “Wp-Content” > "Themes"
Copy “Site” or “Theme” (depending on what it is called in the download) into this folder - Make sure this is not a zip folder that you copy.

Then in admin > Appearance > Theme … and activate your new theme.

Good luck

Thank you for your reply. We followed the instruction for installing through the FTP and it does not seem to work. In the control panel under Appearance>Themes we see no mention of the new Light of Peace theme.

In my experience you have to define a theme name in the style sheet file and it does not look like this was done - maybe I am missing something, I’m a novice so please excuse me, but I don’t see any of the familiar .php files within the “Site” folder. All I see are the the html files is this right?

Hi,
Forgive the next question and I mean this in no way to seem offensive but you are sure that you have purchased the Wordpress version (30$) not the HTML version of this site (12$)?

Assuming this is correct then yes technically the “theme” or “Site” folder would definitely contain some PHP files.

I am not sure about defining names in stylesheets - I have never had to do this.
As standard once WP is installed on a domain then by adding the theme via FTP or admin should do it - the necessary style sheet etc. will be within that theme folder.

If you have installed the theme via FTP maybe try and do it via admin and see if that helps but if there are no PHP files etc in the site folder then it wont do much good.

To do this: Make sure the theme or site folder is a zip then in admin > Appearance > Themes … select to upload a new theme and browse your computer to find the correct zip.

It does sound like perhaps you may have the HTML version of the site.

Good luck.

I think that is our problem we only paid $14 total. It was not clear to us that there was a different version for Wordpress - we are not readers.

Can we possibly get a refund for the html purchase, and buy the Wordpress version instead?
Hehe :slight_smile:


#17

That’s something you need to talk to Envato and the author about but I think it is unlikely.

At least you know why it was not working.

Good luck with your site

i keep trying to install the theme but i get this message:
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.

Hi There, I recently bought your theme, but for some reason when I use the pre-page builder and input my own copy, which has Chinese characters, then try to save/publish the page, it completely removes the pre-page format, how do i fix this?


#20

That could be any number of things - ask the author of the theme as they will have the best answer

It’s a two year old thread so probably better closed
