When you are ready to freshen up the look of your WordPress-powered website, you can install a WordPress theme to give a brand new design to your site. It’s not as complicated as you might think – follow the FixRunner.com guide on how to install a WordPress theme.
Steps To Install A WordPress Theme
WordPress themes can be changed in order to modify the way that the site is displayed to your visitors, customers or readers. Changing the theme correctly shouldn’t interfere with the WordPress software functions.
There are several ways to install a WordPress theme. You can search for themes right from your dashboard and install them from the search results. However, this guide shows you how to install a WordPress theme using FTP.
Create a new directory for your theme in the WordPress wp-content/themes directory. For naming purposes (for example, if you called your theme “my_theme”), make whatever you call it follow the structure of wp-content/themes/my_theme.
Almost there! Now, select the active theme by your site by logging into your Admin Panel in WordPress and going to the Appearance sub-tab and clicking on Themes. Next select the new theme and click Activate.
