Have you seen Elementor?

Our flagship product, Layers has been acquired by the team at Elementor.

This theme has been retired and is no longer being actively developed. Don’t worry, it should still work for some time and will continue to receive critical updates for up to one year from your original purchase date. Learn More Here

Choice: Install Your Theme

This theme is the WordPress equivalent of our former Posterous themes. If you are moving from Posterous to WordPress, also check out our conversion guide here.

Install Your Theme

This section covers the following:

IMPORTANT: If you downloaded your theme from Themeforest:

Do not attempt to upload the Themeforest/Code Canyon zip file to WordPress! Unzip the file downloaded from Themeforest to find the Theme Zips folder. This folder contains the actual theme file, called themename_single.zip. (Example: gigawatt_single.zip or dynamo_single.zip).

Theme Zips

Installing via FTP

  1. Unzip the themename_single.zip to your Desktop (or any easy-to-find location) to find the theme folder, ie “gigawatt” or “dynamo”
    • If you are on a Mac and you are seeing a _single extension on the folder, open that folder to find the actual theme folder!
  2. Connect to your web space using an FTP client and browse to wp-content/themes
  3. Drag the theme folder from your computer into the themes directory. The following example shows the express theme folder on the left and the remote server’s themes folder on the right.
    • ftp1
    • Mac Users: Make sure that the path is wp-content/themes/yourtheme/ and not wp-content/themes/yourtheme_single/yourtheme as this will cause some functions to break.
  4. Log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to  Appearance →  Themes
  5. Locate the theme thumbnail and click the Activate button

Installing via WordPress

Note: If you are not running the latest version of WordPress, please update under Dashboard → Updates
  1. Log in to your WordPress admin panel and go to Appearance and click Add New at the top
  2. Click the Upload link
  3. Click the Browse button and navigate to the location of your themename_single.zip file. Select the file and click Open.
    Upload Theme
  4. Click Install Now to begin the installation.
  5. Wait for the success message, then click Activate.

Update Your Theme

If you are a Themeforest customer, or downloaded your theme more than a few ago, it is a good idea to check for theme updates before diving into setup!

Update Your Theme

Check for theme updates under Theme Options  → Update. Follow the inline instructions to check your theme version and Install the updates you need.

You may also update manually or re-install the theme with a fresh version (recommended). Custom CSS may be safely restored after the reinstall if needed. You can view a detailed walk-through of both options here:
