Child Theme Installation

After a successful theme purchase you will receive an email including your individual theme or theme bundle download link. With this link you can download the zip file that contains your theme files.

Please note that on Mac OSX zip files get extracted by default - so check your downloads folder for the zip file before continuing.

Child themes are different to regular WordPress themes. They rely on a 'parent' theme to function. If the parent theme is not installed then the child theme will not work.

Preparing Your Themes

After downloading the .zip file to your computer you will need to extract it. Inside are two more zip files - one for the parent theme, and one for the child theme. These will need to be installed individually. The order that you install them does not matter - however the child theme can not be activated until both themes have been installed.

Installation via the WordPress admin panel

Please go to Appearance → Themes in your WordPress admin panel and click on Add New/ Upload Theme. Now you an choose to upload the .zip file and click the Install now button. You will need to do the same for both themes.

Once both themes are uploaded you can go to Appearance → Themes, and select the theme you want to activate from the list.

Installation via FTP

Alternatively you can also install the theme directly on your server with a FTP client (e.g. Filezilla for Windows or Cyberduck for Mac). To do this you will need to extract all zip files and then drop the un-zipped theme folders into your …/wp-content/themes/ folder. You can then head over to the WordPress Admin and see your installed theme in the Appearance → Themes admin screen. From there you can activate your theme by clicking on the Activate link.

Once installed the themes should use the following directory structure.

Feedback

We'd love to get some feedback to help us create better themes.
