How to Install a Theme in WordPress?

If you purchased one of our themes, great. Download the theme package, you will receive a zipped folder. Unzip this first folder. 

Within the unzipped theme package, you will find a number of folders such as demo content, documentation, logo image files, etc. There is also 1 additional zipped folder within, titled "name-theme.zip" (If you purchased the Breena template will be called breena.zip).

Important: DO NOT unzip this "name-theme.zip" folder! This particular .zip folder should remain zipped.

Within your WordPress Dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes
Click the "Add New" button at the top-left of the page > Click the "Upload Theme" button at the top.
Click "Choose File" > find your zipped "breena.zip" file > Click the "Install Now" button.

Once the theme is successfully installed on your WordPress, you can "Activate" it via the installation page or via Appearance > Themes to switch over and begin using your theme! (in this example breena theme)

Please note: If you try installing the entire zipped theme package or another incorrect file, you'll likely receive this error message:

"The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed."

If you receive this error message, please be sure that you're installing the ZIPPED file, for example breena.zip
