Installing a WordPress Theme

Last Updated: Feb 12, 2019

A WordPress Theme is a collection of files that work together to produce a graphical interface with an underlying unifying design for a weblog. These files are called template files. A Theme modifies the way the site is displayed, without modifying the underlying software.

 

How to install a Wordpress Theme:

1. To install a WordPress theme that you have downloaded you must first login to your WordPress admin panel. You can access the WordPress admin panel by going to domain.com/wp-admin.
