I decided to make this tutorial so I could help people who are having a hard time in installing themes or plug ins that they bought from outside of WordPress. This post will help you to easily install thrive themes using c panel on your website's hosting.
When I first used Thrive Themes, it had been a nightmare installing it. I got some kind of error in WordPress asking me: "Are you sure you want to do this?" Of course I want to install my theme. I paid for it.
Then I contacted my hosting company. They told me that I needed to edit something on my php file so I could increase my upload limit. That was too much of a hassle for me because I am still learning WordPress then and I am not that confident in changing those types of files.
Good thing that I am taking a course in WordPress and I stumbled upon uploading themes and plug ins using the CPanel.
I know you can use Filezilla for this but it takes a long time to upload files using Filezilla and I don't know why. I needed to leave my laptop on overnight in order for a theme to be uploaded and then sometimes the upload would time out because I missed to click OK on a prompt. Then you would need to start uploading again from scratch.
I also have written instructions below if you prefer to read. 🙂
Here are the written instructions:
And then it's done! Very easy right?
