How To Install Reign BuddyPress Theme

Theme installation

You can install the theme automatically or manually. It's better to install Reign on a fresh WordPress installation.

Manual Installation

Extract the zipped package downloaded from Wbcom Designs to your desktop. In the extracted package you will find reign-theme.zip which is the WordPress theme file.

You can install the theme one of two ways:

  • WordPress

    1. Navigate to Appearance > Themes in your WordPress administration panel.
    2. Click the Add New button at the top of the page.
    3. Click the Upload theme button at the top of the page.
    4. Select the theme .zip file in the theme package downloaded from Wbcom Designs and click Install Now.
  • FTP

    1. Connect to your website host using your FTP client. 
    2. Go to your default WordPress themes folder (/wp-content/themes/) and upload the non-zipped theme folder into that folder (/wp-content/themes/).

Activation

After uploading the theme, you must preview and activate it.

Missing stylesheet issue

While installing the theme manually, you may see the "The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet." message.

Don't worry. If you see this message, it means you've uploaded a wrong theme's file (actually, you're trying to upload the main theme's file containing the theme, its plugins, documentation, etc.)

Please, open this .zip file, find the theme's .zip file in it, and use it instead.
