Download and Install Theme

Download theme

After purchasing the theme on Themeforest, you can download 2 packages from ThemeForest:
  1. 1.
    First is the full package with documentation links and some additional files. You need to unzip this package to find the theme file (zimac.zip) for installation.
  2. 2.
    Second is the package with only the theme itself, this is the package you can install directly.

Install theme via WordPress Dashboard

In order to install the theme into WordPress, you can directly upload the theme file via the WordPress Theme Uploader.
  1. 1.
    Log into your admin panel and browse for Appearance โ†’ Themes.
  2. 2.
    Click Add New
  3. 3.
    Click the Upload Theme
  4. 4.
    Find the package zimac.zip on your device and click the Install Now button.
  5. 5.
    Once the upload has finished, click Activate.
Error: Missing the โ€œstyle.cssโ€ stylesheet?
This is a common issue, it means that you have uploaded the full package. So all you need to do is to unzip the package and find zimac.zip archive to install.
Error โ€œAre you sure you want to do this?โ€ when installing the theme:
While installing your theme through WordPress admin, you may encounter this error message. This is most likely due to your hosting php.ini configs.
The theme file is around 4mb and some servers set the default value for max_upload_limit only 2mb.
To solve this issue, you should either increase your maximum upload size to 10mb on your hosting or ask the hosting provider to do it for you. This is a very common request and they will be able to help you out. Once the limit is increased, you can re-try the installation.

Fallback Method: Install theme via FTP

A further option to install the theme would be to upload it via FTP manager. You can try this way when you get problems in installing.
  1. 1.
    Login to your FTP account or cPanel account and navigate to your WordPress Installation directory.
  2. 2.
    Navigate to the folder /wp-content/themes
  3. 3.
    Unzip theme archive zimac.zip on your device.
  4. 4.
    Upload the โ€œzimacโ€ folder (not the .zip file)
  5. 5.
    Now log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  6. 6.
    Navigate to Appearance > Themes.
  7. 7.
    Now you will see the theme in the listing, Activate it.
