How to Install a WordPress Theme on the WordPress platform



How to Install a WordPress Theme on the WordPress platformThis article is a continuation of the previous article called “How To Install WordPress For My Blog”. While waiting for the WordPress to get installed on your domain, you can go and browse the web for a desired WordPress Theme that you would like to use for your WordPress Blog. Just so you know, WordPress platform has some themes pre-installed within itself. Also, it has an easy-to-use built-in function where you can choose a theme from the genuine WordPress.org website. At the same time, if you want to use a WordPress theme that is Not on the WordPress.org website, then that can be easily accomplished too.

To install a desired WordPress Theme for your WordPress platform go to the admin page, for example tintation.com/wp-admin Remember I told you to write down the information that you filled in at GoDaddy while installing the WordPress platform? Well, this is where you need to get that info in order to log yourself into the WordPress Administrator area. When you’ll open the main admin page, on the left side find and click on the “Appearance” tab, make sure that you are on the “Themes” page. It should look similar to the image below.

This page is showing you which WordPress Theme is currently installed on your new blog. Also, it shows the pre-installed WordPress themes which you may easily switch to by Activating them. Just look around that page and you’ll understand what I mean. To install a pre-installed WordPress theme, just scroll down on that page and click “Activate” link of the theme you want to be installed. You can check if the new theme worked by going to your official blog’s URL and by clicking “Refresh” button on your internet browser window.

To install a WordPress theme that is approved by WordPress.org you can do so by clicking on the top tab called “Install Themes”. Immediately Under the “Install Themes” tab you should see five links like “Search”, “Upload”, “Featured”, “Newest”, and “Recently Updated”. Under the “Search” link you have the option of searching for a theme using a specific keyword, author, tag, color, style, or even subject. To check out some of the WordPress approved themes which I collected read my articles “21 Free WordPress New Themes” or “Top Ten Most Popular Free WordPress Themes“.

Under the “Upload” link you have the option of Uploading any WordPress theme which you have found on the internet or even the one you created yourself. If you didn’t know already but the internet is full of amazing WordPress themes that are Free to use. Usually on the free themes you’ll have to keep the owner’s link on the bottom of all of your blog’s pages, or follow whatever rules they tell you to follow. With the premium WordPress themes you’ll have the option of removing any unwanted content or links. I like this option because you can just browse your computer for the Zipped theme which you found on the internet and then the WordPress platform will unzip it for you.

“Featured”, “Newest”, and “Recently Updated” links are pretty much self-explanatory. Under them you’ll find WordPress approved themes which are either Featured, Newest, or Recently Updated. Well, I believe that is all for now. If I forgot something then feel free to remind me in the comment section below. Also, if you’ll need help or advice feel free to comment about it below and I’ll get back to you when I’ll find the time for it.

    Nice short tutorial on how to install WordPress themes. :)) An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t talk about such subjects. To the next! Cheers!!
