Theme Upload & Installation

1. Theme Upload and Installation

After purchasing our Cosmo Theme you should be able to download it right away. The downloaded file is named CosmoThemeFolder.zip. Make sure to unzip it before proceeding with the installation. It contains following files: cosmo.zip cosmo-child.zip CosmoReadMeText.rtf Navigate to your WordPress Dashboard and click on Appearance > Themes. Now click on the Add New button on top of the page and then click Upload Theme. Choose the cosmo.zip file from the CosmoThemeFolder. The zip file you need to upload is cosmo.zip (zipped within the CosmoThemeFolder.zip).
Important! Don’t upload the whole CosmoThemeFolder.zip folder! If you get a ‘Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet’ error you have probably uploaded the wrong folder.
Click on Install Now but NOT on Activate.  Once it is installed, important click the return to themes button. You should be at Appearance > Themes again. We are not done yet. Now you need to upload the cosmo-child.zip. Click again on the Add New Button on the top of the page and then click on Upload Theme. Choose the cosmo-child.zip file. Click on Install Now and then on the Activate Button. Congrats! You successfully installed the Cosmo WordPress Theme.
