  • I wished this video would explain how to install a premium WordPress theme, that means a theme not from Inspirations (BoldGride theme repository) neither from the WordPress Repository.

    After fumbling around for a while, I was lucky to find the solution, which is as follows:

    Go in Appearance/Themes/Add New/WordPress Repository. Then click on the top left button ‘Upload Theme’. It will then give you the option to choose your file and install it.


    I hope it will help others who are in the same deadend I was.
