1. Installation and setup

Upload and install the theme

Before you can install the theme in wordpress you have to upload the theme and then activate the theme itself. You can upload a wordpress theme in two ways:

1. FTP Upload:

Upload the unzipped theme directory /hybriddaystheme into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server. At the end it should read /wp-content/themes/hybrid-days. In our case, we use FileZilla as a FTP program, but you can use the one you feel comfortable with.

Once the theme is uploaded you can go to Appearance » Themes and activate the Hybrid Days theme. And voilà! ready to start the customizing 🙂
