I’m a complete new boy to this, sorry! I’ve just purchased a envato wordpress the website. I thought I could just upload via ftp to my webspace and edit away! Clearly not. Do I need to install wordpress onto my computer first? and then is there a facility within wordpress to upload onto my webspace? Sorry for such basic questions.
You need to install WP on your domain/hosting…
Some hosting has auto installation of this (be careful it installs it as your root directory though)
Or go to www.wordpress.org and download WordPress. Install this via FTP and set it up using database info etc. from your hosting admin
Assuming you get this into your root directory and installed correctly then…
Go to your downloads page www.themeforest.net/downlaods
Hit Download and choose “Installable WordPress Files Only”
Add the theme zip that will download via your WordPress Admin
Very helpful, just what I needed thank you.
