File format

The process of installing premium WordPress themes is different compare to free themes from WordPress.org theme repository.

Premium themes require manual installation.

The easiest way to install the theme manually is by uploading a .zip file. For that reason, our themes, and many other themes, are delivered as .zip files.

Note, when using a Mac and Safari as a primary browser, you might need to change preferences in Safari in order to stop unzipping the file automatically after downloading it to your computer.

Alternatively, you can use a different browser (Chrome, Firefox or Edge) to download the theme files.
