WordPress: One Click v. other methods


#1

I’d have “My Great Happy Hosting Plan”. How can I change my settings so I can install a customized Wordpress Template I have purchased?

you can use a one click “Custom” install. If you already have a “simple” install going just get the database information and then delete the simple one click. then add the domain as fully hosted, and do a “custom” one click install and specify the database information. You should be right back were you left off with the site.

Once you’ve done the Custom Install, you have two choices for theme installation:

  1. Use the WordPress admin panel for Appearance -> Themes and look for the Add New Theme button near the top.
  2. Go to a theme site and download a theme to your home computer, then use FTP to upload it to your site’s /wp-content/themes folder
