Installing Reach

To install this theme you must have a working version of WordPress already installed. For information about installing the WordPress platform, please see the WordPress Codex – http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress

Installing the theme

When you are ready to install the Reach theme, you must first upload the theme files and then activate the theme itself. You can upload the theme files in two ways:

  • FTP Upload: Using your FTP program, upload the un-zipped theme folder into the /wp-content/themes/ folder on your server.
  • WordPress Upload: From the WordPress Admin Dashboard, navigate to Appearance > Add New Themes > Upload. Go to browse, and select the zipped theme folder. Click “Install Now” and the theme will be uploaded and installed.

We strongly recommend that you upload both the Reach and Reach child themes, following the steps above for both themes.

Once you have uploaded the themes, go to Appearance > Themes and activate the Reach child theme.

We recommend using the child theme from the start because switching from the parent theme to the child theme can result in some of your settings being lost. Save yourself the time down the track: use the child theme from the start.
