How to Install Themes

How to install the themes

Once your purchase has been made you will be redirected back to this site to the download page. You will also receive the download information in an email.

STEP #1:

Follow these instructions for a parent theme that includes a child theme:
Download and un-zip the main .zip archive. This contains the Parent Theme .zip file and the Child Theme zip file.

Once the main archive has been un-zipped you will have two zip archives; one for David and the other for the child theme you purchased. DO NOT un-zip these 2 archives, they need to remain zipped so you can upload and install it automatically.

Follow these instructions for a parent theme alone.
You will be downloading a .zip file. There is no need to un-zip the download file as it needs to be in .zip format to install automatically.

STEP #2:

Automatic WordPress Theme Installation

Go to the Appearance menu and select Themes. From here, select Add New and then click on Upload Theme.

Next, browse to the location of the parent .zip archive first, select it and press the Install Now button. Don’t activate the parent theme if you want to use the child theme. The parent theme just needs to be in the Themes folder for the child theme to work.

Next, perform the above again but this time browse to the location of the child theme .zip archive select it and press the Install Now button. On the next screen chose to Activate.

Your theme is now installed and you are all set.


If you do not see an Appearance tab it could be that you do not have administrative rights to your WordPress site. Contact the person who set up your site.

STEP #3:

Refresh your website, it should load with the new WordPress theme.

Any problems? I’m only an email away.


Mac users: If your Mac is set to unzip files on download you are going to need to either re-zip it OR you can stop your Mac from unzipping zip files upon download. Please try a search using “how to stop mac from unzipping files automatically” and you’ll see a number of results. Pick one that works for you.

Once you have resolved the unzipping problem with Mac you can log back into your WordPress for Art account and download the theme again.



The Fine Print

You’re granted non-exclusive limited license to use the themes or products sold through our website ( (the “products”) in accordance with these Terms & Conditions (the “license”) issued by our company.

1. Theme Licensing & Usage

All our WordPress themes are licensed under the GNU general public license. Our themes may be used by our customers on as many websites as they like.

2. Updates

Theme updates are available to customers who have made an individual theme purchase. You will be notified by email of any updates which will contain a download link.

All themes are always designed to be compatible with the latest available version of WordPress, but we can give no guarantee, that older themes will run with future versions of WordPress. We are however committed to doing our best to make all the themes compatible with future releases of WordPress as quickly as we can.

3. Themes Compatibility

It is our mandate to keep the themes up-to-date and working with the latest version of WordPress. Our themes are developed and fine-tuned for WordPress 3.2 or higher, any version prior to that may have problems with some theme functionality. The minimal requirement for our themes is the same as WordPress, which is currently PHP 5.2 and MySQL 5.0 (requirements).

4. Browser Compatibility

Our themes support all modern web browsers including (but not limited to) Firefox, Safari, Chrome (all on PC & Mac) & Internet Explorer 8 & 9. Whilst we strive to give every theme a seamless & near-identical experience across each of these browsers, it is impossible to compensate for the lack of web standards support (relating to HTML & CSS) in some of these browsers.

In the case of a browser not support certain web standards, we will include a generic workaround for that browser, which will degrade a specific function / feature gradually and in a way that doesn’t affect the user experience negatively.

5. Delivery
