How to Install and Use This WordPress Theme

I’m assuming if you’re here that you already own this theme. In that case, thank you and I love you ❤️

Now, if you’re just getting started, you’ll need a hosting account and a domain name. Personally, I use WPEngine (aff link) and GoDaddy (not an aff link). But feel free to use whatever you want.

To install Carbonate on an existing WordPress account:

  1. Go to Appearance > Add New in the WordPress sidebar.
  2. Click Upload Theme at the top of the Add Themes page.
  3. Upload the zipped folder you downloaded from Money Lab when you bought the theme.
  4. Then, click Activate in the Manage Themes page.

Once you’ve completed these steps, you’ll be using the Carbonate WordPress theme.

I recommend that if you’re already using a theme, and just wanna try out Carbonate and make changes before you go live, you use a theme test drive plugin. Follow the instructions here.
