    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
