This method works for all themes. If you purchased a premium theme or otherwise found a theme that isn’t listed at WordPress.org, this is the easiest method for you to install WordPress theme on your site.

To get started, you should have a theme ZIP file from wherever you found the WordPress theme. If you’re struggling to find this ZIP file, I recommend that you contact the provider of your theme, as each provider will have a different process.

How To Install WordPress Theme By Uploading A ZIP File

Once you’ve located the ZIP file, here’s how to install it.

Head to your WordPress dashboard and hover the Appearance. Then, click on ‘themes’ after that click on Add New:

On the next screen, click the Upload Theme button at the top:

Upload WordPress theme from a .zip on your WordPress dashboard panel

 

After you click the button, a new interface window will appear:

  • First, click Choose File and select the ZIP file from your computer.
  • Then, click Install Now
Select your WordPress Theme .zip file from your desktop to upload on WordPress

 

There will be a slight delay while WordPress uploads and installs your theme, the time depends of your servier, theme size and hosting company, normally it takes 30 seconds . Then, you’ll be able to click the Activate button to make your new theme active:

Note: Sometime you will download a .zip master folder with some files on it, in this case just open this master.zip and extract/remove the themename.zip from it, do not try to upload the themeMaster.zip on your WordPress, just upload the themeName.zip.
