[Resolved] Saving a Theme

  • I’m still a beginner. Can someone please explain how to save a theme from the WordPress Theme Directory so that it shows up in my themes. I follow the prompts but I only get as far as having saved it on my external hard drive. I don’t know what to do from there. I’m trying to save Magazine Basic.
    Thank you.

  • Hi

    After the file is on your computer, you have to upload it to the WordPress folder wp-content/themes

    If you don’t have a program to FTP files, you can either get FileZilla
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_FileZilla
    or use the File Manager program in your webhosting control panel.

    See the following for step-by-step video directions.

    Thanks guys. I just tried uploading to my File Manager and I got about 6 error/warning messages. Thoughts? Yup, I’m a beginner alright 🙂 Thanks. Karen

    ERROR(S) HOME

    ERROR(S):

    magazine-basic.2.2.zip : File upload failed.

    Where is your document root? In other words, where is wp-config.php?

    I have no idea. I think I’m going to phone a help desk. This “easy” blogging is killing me.
    Thank you for all your help. You guys are great. This stuff is just over my head 🙂
