Support » Themes and Templates » Help a WP Newbie

  • Hi all,

    I’m somewhat new to WP, and I really could use a hand. I would love to change my template. I have one in mind, but I can’t for the life of me get it installed…

    I was wondering if there would be some kind soul who would be willing to install it for me? I would be so grateful as this thing is driving me batty and I just thought I would try asking here as a last resort before giving up.

    If there would be anyone willing to help my email is:

  • It seems like you have a couple of theme files, you just can’t get them installed. That seems like something simple that you missed. Can you describe your problem more precisely? When you stare at something too long, you miss the small things, as we all know too well 🙂

    In case you really need someone to look at it, do you have ssh access? ftp access?

    To have someone else install your Themes means giving away password information and access to your site best left to you alone. Very dangerous. Never know who you could trust…and on this forum…..everyone is a suspect……hee hee hee….

    Okay, doing the Vincent Price evil laugh doesn’t come over very well in type, but you get my drift. Everyone here is very trustworthy…except the one with Moose in his name…..ha ha! – see, it just doesn’t work. I’ll work on the laugh.

    Macmanx is right, following the instructons. It’s really easy. You just have to have FTP access to your site, which can be done in Windows (looks like using Windows Explorer, so it’s familiar) or FTP software. Find the directory for themes, usually wp-content/themes/ and upload the FOLDER that the theme is in there. Don’t dump the files in the themes folder, give it its own folder.

    Once it is on your web site, then go to the ADMIN for WordPress, click PRESENTATION and then select your theme. View your site and bingo, it looks different. That’s it. Very simple stuff.

    Good luck….and I promise I’ll work on that evil laugh thing.

    Ok. Ok. I confess.
