Are you wondering how to install WordPress themes?
There are actually two main ways to install and activate a WordPress theme.
Let's start with the easier option first.
How to Install WordPress Themes From The Dashboard
1. From the WordPress dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Themes > Add New.
2. From here, you can search, install and activate different themes.
How to Install a WordPress Theme From a ZIP File
Use this option If you already have the WordPress theme .zip file.
1. Same as above (Appearance > Themes > Add New).
2. Click the Upload Theme button, and select your theme file.
Where to get WordPress themes
If you're looking for WordPress themes, I recommend Astra (the FREE theme I am using) and GeneratePress. Both are extremely lightweight and fast! You can also browse wordpress.org for themes as well.
I don't recommend using premium “multipurpose” themes because they are slow and unnecessary. Here are some recommended articles about themes, plugins, and CSS.
