  1. Install WordPress theme ZIP file via your Dashboard

This is an example of how you can install any BestWebSoft theme.

This way of installation is preferable when you download the theme folder by using a download link. In this case you have to extract the ZIP file with the theme to your desktop, and then it will be extracted automatically in your dashboard.

  1. Download theme (as the example we used Renty theme - https://bestwebsoft.com/products/wordpress/themes/renty-car-rental-booking-wordpress-theme/)
  2. Make sure that there is a theme zip-folder on your desktop.

  1. The ZIP archive you downloaded contains two more files: one with a theme, and a “doc” folder with additional files. So you should extract the archive to be able to download it to your WordPress website.
