What is Template Monster?

FatCow has partnered with Template Monster to provide our WordPress users with a premium selection of templates for enhancing their hosting experience. WordPress themes are a creative way to change the design, or "skin" of your blog. Using a WordPress theme allows you to customize the way your content and other material is presented to your website's visitors.

 

Install a theme/template purchased through Template Monster

Once you've purchased a TemplateMonster template for WordPress, you'll receive an email with a download link that will be sent to the Administrative email address on file with your FatCow hosting account. The link in this email is to download a .zip file that contains your template from the TemplateMonster servers. Follow these steps to complete the download and installation process for your new TemplateMonster template:

NOTE: Included in the .zip file that contains your TemplateMonster theme is a folder titled "Documentation." Within this folder is an html file, "Documentation (Installation and Editing)", which contains more information on installing your new template.

 


Installing a TemplateMonster theme using the WordPress Admin panel:
  1. Click the download link and save the .zip file to your local computer.
  2. Unzip the .zip file using a program such as WinRAR or WinZip.
  3. Log in to your WordPress administrator control panel.
  4. Click Appearance.
  5. Select Add New Themes.
  6. Click Add New.
  7. Upload the .zip file that you downloaded previously to your WordPress account.
