WordPress Themes Troubleshooting: 3 Quick Fixes
If you don’t know how to handle WordPress Themes such as unzipping the compression, and removing one, then you are in the right place. Following we are giving you a quick guide to solve a few of these issues.
Unpack a Theme
Most WordPress Themes come in zip format as the platform supports it. If you want to unzip, just install WinRaR and use it to unzip the theme. Once done, login to FTP Manager and locate wp-content/Themes folder, or the WordPress Installation and unload the unzipped file directly onto your server.
Activate a Theme
There is a difference between installing a theme and activating it. You can browse the installed themes from WP Dashboard. Go to Appearance> Themes and you will see a list of installed themes, you can choose to preview or activate them.
Removing a Theme
