How to install the premium theme

Follow the instructions on how to install the premium version of your theme.

July 22, 2019

Once you’ve purchased the premium theme you will receive an email with a link to download the new premium theme as a zip file.

Please Note: Apple/Safari browser has a setting that auto unzips a zip file on download so you either need to turn this setting off or you can re-zip the files again after download.

Install the Premium zip file:

In newer versions of WordPress, to install the Premium version of a theme you can simply navigate to Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes -> Add New –> Upload Theme, then select the premium zip file and upload the theme.

Once it’s uploaded, you’ll have 2 options: Replace the old theme or Cancel and go back.

Once you’ve uploaded the Premium theme

Select to “Replace current with uploaded” to override the old theme and replace it with the premium theme files.

That will then override the free theme and successfully install the Premium version on your WordPress site.

Updated Successfully

Ensure it says “Theme updated successfully” and then you’re done.

For our Overlay & Guten themes, after you have installed the premium theme, you will need to log into Your Account on our website and then get your license key for the theme to receive updates.

Enter your license key at Appearance -> About Overlay / Guten.
