    Thesis is one of the best WordPress theme which is SEO optimized and comes with great features that will take your blog to the next level. I often get Email from many new users asking me to help them with Thesis Theme installation and here I’m sharing basic tutorial on how to install thesis theme. If you have not purchased Thesis Theme yet, you can do so by following this link: Download Thesis Theme.

    Step by step guide to Install Thesis Theme

    Once you have your Thesis theme logins, download the Thesis WordPress theme and this will give you theme in Zip format. Latest running version of Thesis is Thesis 1.8 and soon DIY themes will be rolling out Thesis 2.0. Login to your WordPress blog and click on Appearance> Theme> Add New Theme

    With this installation you can play with inbuilt option of Thesis WordPress theme but to make major changes using custom.css and custom_functions.php file you need to login to your file manager via any FTP client and rename the custom-sample folder to custom.

    Now, most of the people are not sure how they can customize Thesis theme, one easy way is to get free Thesis skins and give a custom look to Thesis theme.

    This is very basic but first step to get started with Thesis WordPress theme.

    I’ve searched for the thesis and installed it. I don’t understand why you’re talking about princing :/ it’s already installed and i’m using it why are there licenses about it? I’m new to this and so confused. Help me!

    Tiago from where have you downloaded Thesis theme?
    It’s a premium WordPress theme and you need to pay license amount to use it.

    You will also need to rename the custom-sample folder to custom.

    You can do this before or after you upload the Thesis zip file to your WordPress installation
