Installing the theme

So you've purchased Sunny and you're ready to get started!!

WordPress Upload

When you purchase a Sunny license from ThemeForest and download the theme package, you will receive a zipped folder titled " themeforest-17504470-sunny-simple-and-minimal-wordpress-blog ". Unzip this first folder.

Within the unzipped theme package, you will find a number of folders such as demo content, logo, licensing, etc. There is also one additional zipped folder within, titled "sunny.zip".

Important: Do notunzip this folder! 

To upload through your Dashboard, select “Appearance” and then “Themes”. Next, select the “Install Themes” tab at the top of the page and then select the “Upload” link, right above the search field. Choose your file and select “Install Now”. Once the theme is fully uploaded and installed, click “Activate” to activate the WordPress theme.

The theme files will be stored on your server in the wp-content/themes location.

When uploading your theme with the installer, please ensure you are uploading the theme .zip file, not the entire package you downloaded. In this case, you will be uploading sunny.zip.

FTP Upload

To manually upload your new WordPress theme, login with your credentials to your website and locate the wp-content folder in your WordPress install files. Upload the un-zipped sunny folder into the: wp-content/themes folder.

Once uploaded, activate the theme by heading to the “Themes” menu in the WordPress Dashboard. Locate the Sunny theme and hit “Activate”.
