This tutorial will show you how to find, install and activate free themes for your WordPress site.
Video on Installing WordPress Themes
Go to the Themes Area
In the admin area of your Wordpress website, click on the "Appearance" tab and then click on "Themes".
Go the the Install Themes Area
Click "Install Themes" in the top of the themes area.
Choose a Keyword or Set of Features
One way to search for a theme is to enter a keyword and click "Search".
Alternatively you can choose the features you'd like and click "Find Themes". Be careful not to check too many boxes or you'll end up with few results when you search.
Theme Search Results
WordPress will return all the themes that match your search. Click on either "Install" if you know you want the theme or click "Preview" to see what it will look like. We're going to click on "Install" next to "Desk Mess Mirrored"
Install the Theme
You'll see a screenshot of the theme and a few details. Click "Install Now" to complete the installation or "Cancel" to go back.
You'll hopefully get a message saying "Successfully installed the theme [THEME NAME]". Click on "Activate" to make the theme live.
You should now see your theme under the "Current Theme" heading. Voila! Your theme will now be live on your site.
