Help With A Wordpress Project! by Simpath(m): 3:32pm On Aug 13
Hello people,
Am new to wordpress. I have this small wordpress project am handling. I downloaded a theme from themeforest.net. I have also installed Wordpress on the local PC. In another tutorial that I downloaded, I was made to know if I want to access the theme on the dashboard, I'll have to log in using localhost/NameOfWeb/wp-admin. But there is no wp-admin in the theme I have downloaded from themeforest. I have tried to download another theme, and that folder is also missing in the new download.

As a result, I could not even make use of the theme by using Appearance > Theme menu.

Please help on what to do...

I'll appreciate.

You need to check your wordpress installation then because wp-admin is with the wordpress not the theme. to log in using localhost/NameOfWeb/wp-admin

Lol. The WP-admin is a wordpress core and not part of any theme. Just follow the instructions and you will be fine. WP-admin is a folder inside the wordpress you downloaded and not part of the theme

Check if the theme you download is a wordpress theme. If it is, access your wp-admin via localhost/nameOfWeb/wp-admin, and goto appearance > themes, then select upload theme, you'll see an upload button. Select your download theme and click install. The theme should upload and install with an activate button when done, if it's a wordpress theme. You can upload screenshots of your challenge to enable others help you further.

The theme downloaded is a wordpress theme from themeforest.net. I can't access localhost/nameOfWeb/wp-admin on the browser, because the wp-admin is not in the downloaded theme. The only one I could access is localhost/wordpress/wp-admin which is giving me the default settings.

You're mixing things up, hence the reason I asked for screenshots.
wp-admin is your admin panel. In the admin panel, on the sidemenu, you'll see appearance, when you hover on it, you'll see themes. I've attached screenshots for you.

Thank you all for all your helps. Maybe I should explain what I've been able to do or express my challenge differently. First, I want remind you again that am totally new to Wordpress, though I've been developing using other platforms before now.

After installing wordpress, whenever I visit localhost/wordpress on the browser, I get that default home page with flower in a vase. Now, I have a different theme which I wanted to use to replace the default. I have downloaded the theme from themeforest. But from a tutorial I read, I was made to know to customize a theme, I have to access it on the browser via localhost/NameOfWeb/wp-admin URL, which I could not achieve, cos the downloaded theme do not have that wp-admin folder.

But from my findings, it is only the Wordpress folder that can have that folder. So, I concluded I'll have to copy the contents of the downloaded theme onto a copy of the wordpress folder, resident in the htdocs folders and rename the folder to NameOfWeb (which I have done), and then I concluded I'll use the same wp-admin folder for all my sites (please correct me if am wrong).

My challenge now is primarily how do I connect my site to the database, do I have to make changes to the database created when installing wordpress and what changes are these, what are the things I'll upload to the remote location? Will everything go inside the public_html folder?

Please assist. I appreciate. Thank you.

Before you can use a theme you have to install it first.

This is how you go about it

1. copy the theme folder to yoursite/wp-contents/themes
2.log in to dashboard and go to appearance-> theme
3. locate the theme and click "activate"
4. then go to appearance->customize

if u encounter any problems just send me a message on whatsapp 0812 961 5641
