We have written a very detailed guide on how to download and install a WordPress theme, please follow the instruction in that article.


In order to make the theme works properly, you need to install the Jetpack plugin. Simply go to the Dashboard → Plugins → Add New. The plugin will appear in the list below, click Install Now button to install it.

After activating Jetpack, you need to connect to to use it (it requires you to create an account on - which is free). If you don't want to create an account on, you can enable the Jetpack development mode.

#Import demo

Download the exported content, then unzip it. Then go to WordPress Dashboard → Tools → Import and run the WordPress importer.

To add a logo, go to Customize → Site Identity and upload a logo.


The main navigation menu appears at the top left of every page on your website. On tablet and mobile devices, it will be hidden behind a toggle button. To set it up, create a new custom menu via Customize → Menus and assign it to the Header location.
