    Re: how to setup premium wordpress theme

    Hi @swa1345,

     

    After you have gone through the manage wp server setup wizard, you can navigate to Appearance>Themes>New and then follow the dialogue to install your new theme.  Good theme providers typically have a video of the installation from a normal 2016 (or similar free theme) to their theme.  Depending on the theme's functional options you may have to go through a process of "install required plugins" in order for the site to function.  Take a few and check out the documentation if its handy it may save you a world of headache as you encounter the configuration options available in many premium themes.

     

    Hope this helps,

    James
