Theme Upload & Installation

1. Theme Upload and Installation

After purchasing our Jouy Theme you should be able to download it right away. The downloaded file is named JouyThemeFolder.zip. Make sure to unzip it before proceeding with the installation. It contains following files:

jouy.zip

jouy-child.zip

JouyReadMeText.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 jouy.zip file from the MadridThemeFolder. The zip file you need to upload is jouy.zip (zipped within the JouyThemeFolder.zip).

Important! Don’t upload the whole JouyThemeFolder.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.

We are not done yet. Now you need to upload the jouy-child.zip. You should be at Appearance > Themes again.

Click again on the Add New Button on the top of the page and then click on Upload Theme. Choose the jouy-child.zip file.

Click on Install Now and then on the Activate Button. Congrats! You successfully installed the Jouy WordPress Theme.
