Opening Template ZIP files

  • I have selected a few WP themes that I would like to use. I downloaded them in ZIP format to my PC. When I go into my WP site and select “install new themes” all I get is an unZIPPED file – can’t seem to open it . . . am I missing something . . . besides a brain???(lol)

    SUCCESS

    you can now go into wp admin panel and select that theme ; it will show as a new theme

    You neither need nor want to open the ZIP file, merely to upload it to WordPress. WordPress handles the unzipping during install.

    From your dashboard, go to Appearance -> Add New Theme, then click on the “Upload” tab, point the form to your downloaded ZIP file, and click “Upload”.

    WordPress should handle the rest.

    Cool; did not know; I always did the unzip too; thanks
