How do I install my theme?
When you purchased Avada, you should have been prompted to download it to your computer. If you haven’t done that yet, go to themeforest.net and download the file called Installable WordPress file. (Example) You can download all of them but we’ll only use that one.
Step 1. Navigate to ‘Appearance > Themes’
Step 2. Press the ‘Add New’ button towards the top left.
Step 3. When the button changes to ‘Upload Theme’, click it again.
Step 4. A new area should appear below that button. Click ‘Choose File’ and navigate to the folder where you downloaded your zipped Avada theme file containing ONLY the Installable WordPress files.
Step 5. Select it and press Open or Enter.
Step 6. Press Install Now.
Step 7. On the next screen Activate the theme.
Note: If you run into trouble and get an error it is probably because you’re either trying to upload the wrong zip file OR you aren’t uploading a zip file at all. Remember, you only want to upload the zip file that contains “Installable WordPress Files Only.”
Your Theme is now activated but there are a few steps to take to get it ready to style. Your version may be slightly different depending on when you purchased it, but the process is the same. You’ll notice there is a new navigation item at the top of the black WordPress administration menu labeled Avada. The items listed under Avada correspond to the tabs above the video on the Avada welcome page except for the last two: Fusion Patcher and Theme Options. We’ll get to those in a minute. The areas where we’re going to spend our time right now are Registration, Plugins, and Fusion Patcher.
