Obox Instant: Theme Install & Support

With Obox Instant, you are the ruler of your domain. You may install anyadditional themes you wish – as many as you wish. However, it is important to note that we can only provide support for Obox Themes on your Obox Instant account.

Choosing Good Themes

A bad theme can take down your entire site. Look for the following qualities in themes before uploading them to Obox Instant:

  • Recently updated
  • High rating/good reputation with more than 500 votes
  • Actively developed/supported
  • User-friendly options/setup
  • Look and feel you like (it is not always possible or easy to restyle/customize how themes look!)
  • Compatibility with the plugins you plan to use
  • Comes from a reputable source (Obox, Themeforest, WordPress.org theme directory) – be careful of sites that let you download premium themes for free, as they usually contain malware.

Installing Themes

To Install additional Obox Themes, you can upload the theme package under Appearance → Themes, or upload the theme directly using FTP. Detailed install instructions can be found under the main Documentation link for your product here on this site.

See the following for details on using FTP with your Obox Instant account.
