Install our premium themes just as you would any other premium WordPress theme.

There are two methods to install the theme. You can install it directly from the WordPress Admin Area, or you can install it manually via FTP access.

Automatic installation (via WordPress Admin Area):

Note! In the following tutorial, the “Author’s Notepad” theme is used as an example.

To install the theme automatically (from the WordPress Admin Area), please perform the following steps:

  1. Download the ZIP archive with the theme to your computer. After downloading you should have a ZIP archive called authors-notepad.1.0.zip. This is a compressed file containing all the folders and files required for the theme to function properly.
  2. Log in to Admin Area of your WordPress website.
  3. Go to Appearance -> Themes.
  4. Click Add New -> Upload Theme -> Choose File, and browse the ZIP archive with the theme. Click the Install Now button. Wait a few seconds until the theme is installed.
  5. Hover the mouse over the “Author’s Notepad” theme title or preview image and click the Activate button to activate the theme.
  6. Go to Appearance -> Customize for further customization of the theme.

Manual installation (via FTP access)

Note! In the following tutorial, the “Author’s Notepad” theme is used as an example.

To install the theme manually (by simply uploading all files via FTP or SFTP), please perform the following steps:

  1. Download the ZIP archive with the theme to your computer. After downloading you should have a ZIP archive called authors-notepad.1.0.zip. This is a compressed file containing all the folders and files required for the theme to function properly.
  2. Unzip the ZIP archive with the theme on your computer. You’ll get the folder authors-notepad-sxc.

    You need to preserve the directory structure in the archive when extracting these files.

  3. Access your server via FTP or SFTP.

    If you aren’t sure how usually your web hosting provider will have instructions somewhere on their website.

  4. Browse to the directory wp-content/themes/.

    The location of the folder wp-content depends on your host’s setup. Typically, the folder public_html contains all the files of the website, among which you will find this folder. Please contact your web hosting company to get help if you can’t find this folder.

  5. Upload the theme folder authors-notepad-sxc from step 1. Wait for the uploading to complete, it may take several minutes. Once the upload complete, the theme should be in wp-content/themes/authors-notepad-sxc/ on your server.
  6. Log in to Admin Area of your WordPress website.
  7. Go to Appearance -> Themes.
  8. Hover the mouse over the “Author’s Notepad” theme title or preview image and click the Activate button to activate the theme.

    Note: If the theme preview is blank, do not activate the new theme without investigating further. Your website may not be displayed correctly, otherwise.

  9. Go to Appearance -> Customize for further customization of the theme.
