Before installing, please unpack the .zip file that you have downloaded, and inside the unpacked .zip file, you will find two more files – a parent and child theme.

  5. Click on Choose theme, and then browse for the theme file on your computer.
  6. Click on Install Now to start the installation.
  7. After the installation is done, click on Activate theme.

Installing the theme by manually uploading files
