Showcase Pro: Theme Installation

Installing the Genesis Framework and Showcase Pro follows the same process for installing any WordPress theme, except that you have to do it twice! First, you install the Genesis Framework and then you install Showcase Pro.

Here are the steps to follow:

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes from the WordPress menu
  • Click Add New
  • Click Upload Theme
  • Click Choose File, find and select your zipped copy of the Genesis Framework on your computer
  • Click Install Now

After installing the Genesis Framework, you can now install Showcase Pro. It’s the same process you’ve just gone through to install the Genesis Framework:

  • Navigate to Appearance > Themes from the WordPress menu
  • Click Add New
  • Click Upload Theme
  • Click Choose File, find and select your zipped copy of Showcase Pro on your computer
  • Click Install Now
  • Lastly, click Activate in order to immediately start using Showcase Pro

After you’ve installed both the Genesis Framework and Showcase Pro, you’re ready to activate your theme. It is not necessary to activate the Genesis Framework theme as it will run quietly in the background. Be sure the Genesis Framework is installed before you activate Showcase Pro.
