» How To Add New WordPress Themes To Your Site

Switching between themes in WordPress is extremely easy. You just need to go to Appearance > Themes and click on either Live Preview to preview how your site is going to look like, or click on Activate to use the theme immediately.

To add a new theme, click on the Add New button.

In the next screen, you will then have the option to either upload a new theme or install one from WordPress.org. Normally, you use the upload button if you buy a premium theme from a third-party website. 

If you want to get a feel for how WordPress themes work, then you can simply choose from any of the Featured, Popular, and Latest themes on your Themes dashboard. Note that these themes are from the free WordPress.org Theme Directory (http://wordpress.org/themes). 


If you don’t want to scroll through thousands of free themes, use the Search Themes box on the right.

If you want to install or preview a free WordPress.org theme, hover your mouse over the theme so the Install and Preview buttons will appear, just as you see in the screenshot below.
