Installing the theme is very easy, you’ll see.
There are two ways to install a WordPress Theme:
Directly upload the zipped theme file via the WordPress admin
By uploading the unzipped theme folder containing all the theme files directly on your server using an FTP client.
Option 1 – Using WordPress Installer ( recommended )
Log in to your WP Admin Panel
Go to Themes -> Add New
Click on the Upload button.
Browse to the theme’s zip file (it is located in the archive you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest) and choose that file.
When asked to select a file, choose the kingdom.zip file.
Click the “Install Now” button.
Wait while the theme is uploaded to your server.
Click the “Activate Theme” button after the theme has finished uploading to your server.
Option 2 – Installation via FTP Client Software
Extract the .ZIP archive from Codecanyon/ThemeForest to a local folder on your PC. It should contain a subfolder named kingdom.zip
Upload unzipped ‘kingdom’ folder from Themes folder to the ‘/wp-content/themes/’ directory using your favorite FTP client software
Make sure you have setup Transfer Mode – Binary, because files can be broken upon transfer with ASCII mode
Login to your WordPress admin dashboard, go to Themes
Congratulations, you are set to go! So let’s move to the next step and configure the theme.
