Install Theme

If you have not yet installed WordPress, consult the WordPress documentation for more information. You may want to contact your web host for help installing WordPress.

To install this theme:

  1. Download the plate-up.zip file that you received in you purchase receipt.
  2. In your WordPress admin area, navigate to the Appearance > Themes page and click the Add New button at the top. On the next page, click the Upload Theme button at the top.
  3. Click the Choose file button and select the plate-up.zip file you download. Then click the Install Now button.
  4. Once installed, go to the Appearance > Themes page in your WordPress admin area. Find the Plate Up theme in the list and click the Activate button to activate the theme.
  5. If you plan to make any customizations, you should install the Child Theme that was provided with your purchase. Follow the steps above with the plate-up-child.zip file, activate the child theme and make all of your customizations there.

Now that the theme is active, you’ll probably want to head over to the Appearance > Theme Setup page. Or continue following along with this documentation to learn how to activate the recommended plugins.
