Theme Installation

Upload the Theme

Using FTP

To add a new theme to your WordPress installation you must follow these basic steps:

  1. Download the theme archive and extract the files it contains.
  2. Use a FTP client (we recommend FileZilla) to access your host web server and upload the extracted folder, named attitude-wpl, to the wp-content/themes/ directory.
  3. Follow the below instructions to activate the theme.

Using the Administration Panel

  1. Download the theme archive and extract the files it contains.
  2. Log into the WordPress Administration Panel.
  3. Select the Appearance → Themes from the main menu.
  4. Click on Add New at the top of the page.
  5. Click on Upload Theme at the top of the page.
  6. Click Upload, select the theme archive you’ve downloaded in step 1, named attitude-wpl.zip and click Install Now.
  7. Follow the below instructions to activate the theme.

Activate the Theme

  1. Log into the WordPress Administration Panel.

    wp-admin

    yourdomain.com/wp-admin

  2. Select the Appearance → Themes from the main menu.
  3. Hover over Attitude WPL and click on Activate to enable the theme.

Update the theme

  1. Make a Backup.
  2. Log into the WordPress Administration Panel.
  3. Select the Appearance → Themes from the main menu.
  4. Activate another theme, like the WordPress’ default, Twenty Sixteen.
  5. Delete the theme (Attitude WPL).
  6. Upload the attitude-wpl.zip file as described above.
  7. Activate the theme you used before the update.
If you are also using the Attitude Child Theme, never update or delete it, and update the parent theme, Attitude WPL instead. Updating the child theme will cause you to lose custom modifications to your site.

Troubleshooting

Missing Stylesheet

A common issue that can occur with users new to installing WordPress themes is a “Stylesheet is missing” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme.

This error message does not mean that the theme is not working, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly. Luckily, there is a very easy fix.

If you have uploaded the theme through the WordPress Administration Panel, try deleting the theme from your site and uploading the attitude-wpl.zip file again.

If you uploaded the theme using FTP, navigate to the theme directory (wp-content/themes/attitude-wpl/) and try uploading the style.css file again.
