    1. Open the WordPress admin panel and go to the Appearance > Themes section. Click Add new button and browse theme from the theme folder within the template pack. Activate Cherry theme after uploading:


    2. If you have difficulties installing the theme through the WordPress admin panel, you can upload it through the FTP File.

  4. Uploading plugins. Please check documentation file included into your template pack to locate links for plugins download. Log into your WordPress admin panel, open Plugins > Add New page. Click Upload Plugin to upload plugins files:


  5. Uploading images. Copy the uploads folder (you can find it in the theme/manual_install/ template folder) into the /wp-content/ directory on the FTP server. Accept folder(s) replacement. Please note that your images may be replaced with sample images.

  6. The last step of template installation is sample data installation:

    1. Please open the theme#####.sql file (located in the theme/manual_install/ folder) using any code editor (Recommended software: Dreamweaver or Notepad) and change all instances of “your_website_url_here” with your website URL via Find and Replace (hot keys – Ctrl+H). E.g.: http://www.mywebsite.com

    2. Make sure there is no forward slash “/” at the end of the URL, it also should start with http://www.


    3. Replace all “your_website_url_here” instances, save and close the file.

    4. Now you can import .sql file to the database.

    Please follow the steps listed below to import .sql file:
