Using Jetpack Premium Themes

In this article:

All WordPress sites use a theme to provide structure and formatting for the website being displayed. Jetpack includes 100 free themes, but with a professional subscription, you get an additional 200+ themes. Themes in Jetpack can be searched by feature, layout, column, subject, and style. You can also simply search for a theme by stating its subject content. For example, you can search for “Weddings” and you will see themes that were designed with that category in mind. We’ll show you how to find and activate the Jetpack Premium themes and then highlight a few of them to demonstrate the quality of their design.

In order to access the Jetpack Premium themes, you will need to have a Jetpack Professional subscription. Subscribe to the InMotion WP4000S WordPress Hosting Plan and you get Jetpack Professional as part of the package!

How to Find and Activate a Jetpack Premium Theme

  1. Log in to the WordPress Administrator Dashboard.
  2. Click on Jetpack, then click on Dashboard.
  3. You should then be on the Jetpack Dashboard page. In the menu bar at the top, click on My Plan.
  4. Scroll down the page until you find the box labeled “Try a premium theme.” Click on the Browse premium themes button.

This will bring you to the Themes page within WordPress.com. At the top of the page, you will see the theme currently being used by your WordPress site. Then you will see a bar that you can use to search for a specific type of theme. Or, you may opt to scroll and look at the available themes.

Using the Search Options for the Jetpack Themes

There are a couple of options that allow you to search for themes instead of scrolling through all 300+ of them (including both the Free and Premium themes).
