Frequently Asked Questions
What are WordPress Themes?
WordPress is the CMS (Content Management System). Think of it as the first layer in your website development, with the second layer being your theme. Themes are a way to skin your website with a design element as well as a collection of files designed to give you advanced functionality and design aspects.
What’s the difference between Free WordPress Themes & Premium Themes?
Free themes are normally very basic, with limited functionality. They are often released for free by developers to gain an audience/following to their profile. Premium themes not only contain much more advanced functionality than free themes, but they are updated much more frequently with new features and more importantly, security updates. We always recommend premium themes from well-known developers, to save yourself the headache down the line.
What Themes do you showcase?
We showcase a wide range of themes that we think are amazing for one reason or another. Be it because the theme is very well suited for e-commerce stores to having page builders or other advanced functionality that needs to be promoted.
Can I get my Theme showcased on WPThemed.com?
Yes! If you’re a web developer and want us to showcase your theme, use the submit button at the top of the page to submit your theme details to us. You’ll need to provide us with the details necessary such as theme name, price, URL to purchase, description (this must be uniquely written or we won’t accept the application) etc. Once we have reviewed the theme, if we like it, we’ll showcase it on WPThemed.com!
How do I install a WordPress Theme?
Once you have downloaded a theme, you will have a ZIP file. You’ll need to extract this which will give you another ZIP file. Sometimes there will be a 2nd file titled ‘Child ***” if so you’ll want to install both of these. To install your new theme, head over to the WordPress admin panel, and choose ‘Appearance’ – ‘Themes’. At the top of the page, you’ll see a button titled ‘Add new’. Select this, upload your extracted ZIP file, and lastly choose ‘Activate’.
Alternatively, you can extract the zipped folder so it’s in a normal file structure (rather than a compressed one)
