Support » Everything else WordPress » Theme update, mapping and dns

  • Hi! Newbie here and would really like some help. I’m really confused as how I should proceed right now. My wordpress site is Not sure of the version, cant seem to find where it is?

    My main problem:
    I want to install new wordpress themes from themeforest to my current site but can’t find the install themes button?

    1. I think its because of my hosting/mapping. So I added a domain ( to my unlimited hosting at hostgator. Then I went to update the DNS – but it doesnt work and it cant be done. Is this because I have a domain mapped for my WP site via Will doing this enable me to upload a new theme?

    2. Would it be wise for me to cancel the mapping and just install wordpress via hostgator using Fantastico into my original URL ( and delete the wordpress site ( and just redo it? I’m happy to do that as I need to give it a big face lift.

    Any suggestions would be great. Thank you very much!
