In case you are installing a WordPress theme which is not available in the WordPress directory so Uploading is the only option you have. This is the reason I choose this option first.

In case, you bought a WordPress theme from a WordPress theme seller so the WordPress theme files you have to download to your computer and uploading is the only option you have. Let’s see some steps below to install a WordPress theme to your website or a blog.

  • Go to your WordPress blog or a website.

  • Click on the upload theme and you will see an option to upload a WordPress theme on a blog or a website.
  • Simple upload a WordPress theme and wait a few seconds (depends on your internet connection speed) to install.
  • After installing you will see ‘Live Preview‘, ‘Activate‘ and ‘Return to Theme pages‘ options. So simply choose Activate and that’s it.

Install a WordPress theme on a blog or a website from search

With this option you nothing to have uploaded but you must have to search to install a WordPress theme on a blog or a website.

  • Go to your WordPress blog or a website.
  • Click on Appearance and then themes.
  • On the top, you will see an option that is “Add new“. Click on that.
  • Simply go for a featured WordPress theme or sort as per your need via clicking on “Feature Filter“.
