After you download the package from ThemeForest, please unzip it. You'll see a file called, which is the main file needed to upload and install.

You can either choose to upload and install the theme using WordPress theme install or use the FTP function.

If you plan to customize the theme, you should install both the theme and child theme, then activate the child theme. Using a child theme allows you to customize some parts of the parent theme without touching into the theme files.

Step 2 – Click the Add New button on top of the page, then the Upload Theme button.

Step 3 – Click Choose File and find the theme files you've just downloaded. If you’ve downloaded the installable WordPress file, then you do not need to unzip the file. If you’ve downloaded the Full Theme Package, you have to unzip the master file, therein you will see a secondary file, this is the one you select to install.

3. Troubleshooting

  1. "Are you sure you want to do this?" error

    If you get the “Are You Sure You Want To Do This” message when installing the file via WordPress, it means you have an upload file size limit that is set by your host. If this happens, please install the theme via FTP or contact your hosting company and ask them to increase the limit.

  2. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet error

    A common issue that can occur when installing a WordPress theme is “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.” error message being displayed when uploading or activating the theme. One of the reasons you may receive this error is if you have uploaded the incorrect file. You have 2 options for downloading your theme
