So now that you know how to search for themes and have found a WordPress theme you like, you will need to install it. 

Log into your WordPress Dashboard, click on Appearance and then themes.  Once you find the theme that you want to install, click the "Install" button link under the theme and the pop-up box below will appear.


Click on the "Install Now" button, and a page will load that confirms that the theme has been installed.


Go back to the "Manage Themes" tab, the theme you just installed will be available to use.


Click on "Activate" under the new theme, and that theme will now be the one used on your website.

Please check the next article on Finding a new theme online. If you missed our previous article, please see the Changing your layout: Finding a new WordPress Theme tutorial. For more information on this course please visit Installing a Theme.
