Trouble understanding how to install the theme files
Please help! I’m trying to download a theme from wordpress, specifically “blue diffusion”. I bought a book on building wordpress blogs, because I don’t have a lot of skill/experience with computers. However, it feels like I’m trying to read directions in Swedish.
The book tells me to…”download the files to your computer. The files will be compressed in an archive, such as a .zip file. When you’ve downloaded the archive, use your favorite decompression utility to expand it. Then transfer the theme folder via FTP to the themes directoryon the remote server that hosts your blog: http://www.yourWordPressURL.com/wp-content/themes. After you’ve uploaded the new theme’s folder, refresh the Themes panel to verify that the theme is installed and ready to use.”
Is there any way this could be simplified? I’m not exactly sure what my favorite decompression utility is, what an archive is, etc. Any help is appreciated.
