Installing a WordPress theme can be easy or difficult, depending on the theme and it’s availability (or lack thereof) in the WordPress themes directory.
The automatic installation process comes very handy with published themes, but sometimes things fail or themes are not in the repository, and one must resort to the old fashioned files upload, either via WordPress or via the old fashioned FTP. This tutorial describes all three methods.
Installing from the .org repository
Installing from a zip file
Manual (FTP) installation
Guys make sure you have Presentation Page enabled in settings (first setting in he presentation page options)

I have no problems installing the theme however a child theme is not working.
I’m using the below in a folder “Nirvana Child” and style.css
Theme Name: Nirvana Child
Theme URI: http://www.cryoutcreations.eu/nirvana
Author: Cryout Creations
Author URI: http://www.cryoutcreations.eu
Description: Imagine a land […]
That child theme header might be incomplete.
Are you enqueuing the parent (Nirvana) stylesheet in the code? Otherwise, you need to load it in the child theme style.css file with @import.
See our child theme tutorial.
Is this only applicable to premium wordpress?
Can I customize the “read more button”?

Hi.. I saw one tutorial on http://www.agnishukla.com/2014/07/14/manual-wordpress-installation-within-5-minutes-simple-steps/ , that guy uploaded wp 3.91 version directly into filemanager & the extracted and installed wordpress , My question is uploading via cpanel is better or uploading wordpress via Ftp or simplescripts 1 minute installation is better
Manual upload guarantees you are installing the latest version. Using your control panel’s “magic installer” may leave you with an older (outdated, vulnerable) WordPress installation.

I installed it but I can’t figure out how to label the areas like the columns or change the pics in the columns. Is there a tutorial somewhere?
Which theme is your question about?

I have watch an install video and seen this blog. both times the first step is to click ‘Install Theme’ but I do not have that header. Any help of why this is would be helpful.
Are you using WordPress.com or a self-installed WordPress?
