How to add new theme to wordpress site?

Posted by Madhurie Singh on September 11, 2009

Today I am gonna add new themes for my wordpress website. As of now, I did not want to word hard on something which takes loads of times, until I was sure of my first site installed correctly.

Now till I install other sites in the same database, I may take a month or so. So I want to give my site a good look, till I finalize on the other sites and rest of the fine tunings.

To add a new theme, log into the admin page of the website. ie http://www.madhuriesingh.com/wp-admin/install-theme.php

or I can go to the admin page and click Add New Theme under APPEARANCE.
click add new theme

I like Andreas as I have using it in my blogs. So I will click and preview it first. I like the preview and will Install it now. I click Install button.

I am using Andreas09 for my wordpress blogs, but the available theme in wordpress.org is Andreas01 !
So I google it and download the zip file of Andreas09-16 .zip. Then I click upload button in the Install Theme page.
I select the downloaded zip file for upload.
upload theme zip file
Activate the installed theme

This is how my site looks after activating the theme Andreas 09.
