Installation the Theme

There are two ways to upload any theme into the WordPress site: Admin panel and FTP. The most recommended way is uploading via Admin panel, however, sometimes there may be size limitation for files uploaded that is why this manual provides both ways:

Upload Theme through WordPress Admin panel

Way 1: Install the theme through the WordPress Dashboard:

Download a theme package file from ThemeForest. Unzip the package file on your computer - the theme package folder will be created.

Installing By FTP

Way 2: Upload through the FTP

First, you need to uncompress the WordPress theme ".zip" in the Theme package downloaded from Themeforest. But in Elessi Theme Package, we have unzipped them already into Elessi folder and each unzipped folder contains all necessary files to install the theme, include layouts, CSS and PHP files contained all theme code. Using the FTP to transfer the folder of this theme to the WordPress theme's root directory: /wp-content/themes.

Connect to your hosting (server) via FTP client

Upload your theme folder to your-site.com/wp-content/themes folder

Login to your WordPress Dashboard and go to Appearance > Themes and activate Theme.

Open your site and check if everything is okay
