Genesis Framework: Purchasing and Uploading
In this section of the guide to the Genesis Framework WordPress, we will look at purchasing and uploading the Theme and its files to your website without any fuss or anxiety.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) Head to http://my.studiopress.com/themes/genesis or search Genesis Framework on Google/Bing, etc. and find the site from the search engines. Once you’re on the page, take a read through the main page before hitting the green button that says Buy Genesis Framework. This will take you through to the payment screen.
Step 3) On the checkout page, add all of your details to create an account with StudioPress. This will allow you to purchase further Themes in the future if you wish. You can also choose to pay via credit card or PayPal. Be sure to read all the terms and conditions before making a purchase of the Theme to make sure you’re happy before you go ahead.
Step 4) Once purchased, you can download your copy of the Genesis Framework. It will come as a zip file. The next step is to add the files that make up that Theme to your website, and then active it so that the Genesis Framework is the Theme of your site. Head to the Themes section by heading to Appearance and then Themes.
Step 5) On the Themes page, scroll down until you see an empty Theme box that reads Add New Theme and click on it.
Step 6) On the Add Themes page, click on Upload Theme at the top of the page.
Step 7) Click on Choose File to be taken to your computers folders, where your zip folder for the Genesis Framework will be waiting.
Step 8) Search around for the Genesis Framework and double-click on it to be taken back to the Add Theme page.
Step 9) The zip folder will now be in place and ready to install. Simply click the Install Now button and the files will upload. This might take a few moments, so be patient.
Step 10) Once the package has been unpacked and the Theme has been installed, you can hit Live Preview to see what the Theme looks like (in case you decide not to use it right now) or to Active the Theme for use right away. You can also return to the Themes page if you simply wanted the Theme on your site as a cool alternative Theme.
Step 11) Genesis Framweork is now officially installed and in your gallery! From the Themes page you can switch Themes, or click on the Genesis Theme to be take directly to the Setting page.
