    1. Get the Theme’s Files

    Save the theme’s files on your computer first. Navigate to the Downloads section in your Envato account, that’s where all your purchases are kept, then click the green Download button to grab the theme, make sure you’re getting the “Installable WordPress file only”.

    2. Upload and Activate the theme

    • Navigate to Appearance > Themes and click the “Add New / Upload Theme
    • Upload the file you’ve downloaded from ThemeForest in the previous step and click Install Now.
    • Once the file has been uploaded click the Activate link.

    3. The Setup Wizard

    The theme comes with a setup wizard making it really easy to install the plugins coming with it and import the demo content in two simple steps. As soon as the theme is activated, the setup wizard will start automatically.

    This is what you should be seeing on your screen:

    Step 1: Plugin Installation
    The following plugins are required by the theme’s demo imported, so it can import dummy content in the next step.

    Step 2: Demo Import

    The importer will help you start with the pre-built layouts from the demo and dummy content such as product pages, blog posts and widgets. In case you’re using the theme on an existing site you may not want to import the demo content. In that case, simply skip this step.

    You can start working on your site now. Good luck with your project!
