Maker Pro: Theme Installation

Theme Installation

Installing the Genesis Framework and Maker 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 Maker 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 Maker 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 Maker Pro on your computer
  • Click Install Now
  • Lastly, click Activate in order to immediately start using Maker Pro

After you’ve installed both the Genesis Framework and Maker 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 Maker Pro.
