You’ve just purchased a shiny new theme from MOJO Marketplace. Whatever you’re building, we’re here to help you every step along the way.
To get you started, here’s a step by step guide to help you get your new theme installed.
First, download your theme
Once you’ve purchased your WordPress theme, visit your MOJO Marketplace account. Once logged in, hover over your username located at the top right of the screen and you’ll see a menu where you can click on “My Account”.
You’ll now see your account information and on the left side you’ll have a new menu where you can find your purchases. Click on “My Purchases”, then “Items”
Once you get to your item purchases, scroll down to view your theme. Once you find the theme you’d like to install, find the “Download” button.
Click on the download button you’ll have a new menu allowing you to download the “Theme Files”. The “Theme Files” will be downloaded as a zip file. This is the theme you purchased! All packaged up and ready to dress up your WordPress site.
Download the zip file, and save it somewhere on your computer where you can easily find it later.
Next, upload and activate
Once you’ve saved the zip file on your computer, you’re going to navigate to your WordPress site and get it installed and activated!
Please navigate to your site url where you can login to WordPress which will look like this – www.example.com/wp-admin and from here we will login to our site.
