How to install free WordPress themes

Simply log in to your WordPress Dashboard, then go to Appearance > Themes. Click ‘Add New’ at the top of the screen, then use the search bar on the right to enter the name of one of the themes below. Click ‘Install’, then ‘Activate’, and that’s it! Your new theme is live 🙂

Please note that if you’re planning to edit your theme files directly, you’ll want to create a child theme to avoid overwriting your changes when a theme update is released. If you’re a hosting customer and need help with that, just let us know!
