Install theme via FTP

A further option to install the theme would be to upload it via FTP manager. It really doesn’t matter which of the two ways you choose, use this way when you get problems when installing.

  1. Login to your FTP account and navigate to your WordPress Installation directory.
  2. Navigate to the folder wp-content/themes.
  3. Unzip theme archive on your device.
  4. Upload the ksf-smartkit folder (not the .zip-file) to the folder wp-content/themes.
  5. Log into your WordPress admin dashboard.
  6. Navigate to Appearance > Themes. Now you will see the theme in the listing, Activate it.
