    Now, using a good FTP client like FileZilla you upload it to wp-content/themes and activate it through the WordPress interface. Take care to avoid the "folder nesting" problem. See this post,

    Also, as a newcomer you should familiarize yourself with the Codex. It is packed with info covering all aspects of WordPress. A good place to start is here --> http://codex.wordpress.org/New_To_WordPress_-_Where_to_Start

    What is your site's URL?

    No LenK...if we transfer the .zip file with a FTP client into the themes directory, it will not work.
    We have to first decompress the .zip file, then open it and there will be another file with the same name inside the decompressed file. We are supposed to tranfer that file,then only the theme will work fine.

    That's what I'm thinking the OP did which is why I wanted the URL so I could take a peek.
