Activating the Theme

A proper setup is crucial for a right-foot start into the WordPress world. This article will walk you through the process of accurately activating your theme. Please keep in mind that this stage comes after the installation, not the other way around.

  • Go to Dashboard and click on Appearance → Themes
  • Go to theme you just installed (at mouse-over you will see the Activate button – click on it)
  • Now you can start working on your upcoming website

Click on the Customize button and start playing around. You’re now ready to add content of any kind and customize the theme to your preferences.
