Installing the theme files

The first step in installing a new theme is downloading the files to your computer. The files will be compressed in an archive, such as a .zip file. When you've downloaded the archive, use your favorite decompression utility to expand it. Then transfer the theme folder via FTP to the themes directory on the remote server that hosts your blog:

www.yourWordPressURL.com/wp-content/themes

After you've uploaded the new theme's folder, refresh the Themes panel to verify that the theme is installed and ready to use.
