WordPress Themes should be located:

wp-content/themes/

Example theme located there:

wp-content/themes/chocotheme/

You must make sure all theme files are located in the theme folder e.g “chocotheme”. Also having all the theme files located together makes it easier to manage.

Themes can be manually uploaded to the server or they can be automatically installed/uploaded for you by doing the following:

  1. Goto the Admin Dashboard
  2. Click Appearance on the left menu
  3. Click Themes
  4. Then click on the “Install Themes” tab at the top.
  5. Click the upload link just below the tab.
  6. Browse for the .zip file
  7. Click on “Install Now”

This will only work for themes in a .zip file.
