04:54 Method 2: How to upload a premium theme to WordPress
07:24 How to make your theme look like the demo

TO edit your site’s theme you would first want to log into your WordPress site, to do this you would log into your WordPress site. If you don’t know how to log into your site, you would go to your domain and add /wp-admin to go to your login page where you can insert your login information.

Under Appearance, Themes you would normally only see one theme if you have one installed or a list of all of the themes you have installed on your site. You can use the add new button in the top left to see all of the free and freemium themes available to you from the WordPress repository.

Should you not be able to see the same themes or are unable to install plugins then you are likely on instead of which we cover. For a comparison of and you would want to take a look at our article below:

If you are wanting to use a premium theme, then you would download the theme from the theme provider, and go back to your WordPress admin area under Appearance, Themes, and once you click add new the button should update to the option to upload your downloaded zip file for your theme.

To make your theme look like the demo we would recommend taking a look at your theme’s documentation for if they have a recommendation for a starter pack or if they have demo content. If you’re using the Astra theme then we would recommend installing their Starter Templates for getting the template set up.

For the next video in this setup, we would recommend taking a look at our video below:

    There is no upload theme button in my WordPress. Do I need to upgrade my blog from a personal plan to a business plan so I can install a theme I downloaded or bought from elsewhere?

  • Cullys Charle on October 30, 2020

    When I clicked "Add New", it will lead to the Add Themes page, but the page appears to have empty space. I can only see Featured, Popular, Latest, Favorites and the Feature Filter tabs. The search bar is gone. Can you assist?

  • Malena Hernández on December 17, 2020

    Thank you for this!! Please, one question. After I installed and customize my website, as I use a multi-purpose template, which is very heavy, looks like is very slow to navigate throughout my website. How can I delete pages or data (I'm not sure what or how) that I do not use or how can I make the navigation faster??

  • Mahammed Nur on February 18, 2021

  • Linas. Film on April 13, 2021

    What do I do if in the themes area, there is no button that says "add new theme"?

  • Ronda Bernstein on April 23, 2021

    Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work with basic plans. There is no "Add Theme", only an "Upload theme" and that is only available for premium plans. It also doesn't give you an option to search for themes so you can only use what they show.

  • Sharmaine Solano on April 26, 2021

    thank you so much

  • beem nn on May 6, 2021

    you didn't answer the question how can I activate the template and make it look like the demo ? I didn't find my theme in the starter templates catalogue
