I tried purchasing a website template loaded with contents, from a guy in this forum from the 'Complete Websites For Sale' section. I tried reaching him here to inform him that his payment link wasn't working. When i couldn't get him here, i checked his profile page and found where i could reach him via Facebook.
I explained to him my efforts in trying to reach him for days and then i informed him that his payment link wasn't working.
Now, this man decided to gave me the product free of charge and i thanked him. The problem is, in his post here, he offered to help install or upload the website for free but since he gave me the product free he didn't upload it for me. I've tried reaching him to help me with that or to just outline how i could do it myself but it's been days now and i haven't heard from him, not even through Facebook
So i'm stuck with a product that i can't put into use and i was almost getting frustrated about this until i thought of you guys
You've never let me down till date, so i need your help once more.

This template is a wordpress template that has all the pages and contents inside, it's all in a zip folder. I have already gone to my website cpanel and installed wordpress in it using Fantastico but that's all i could do.
My question is, how do i now add the theme and the pages that were already in the zip folder?
How do i upload this type of website to make it go live?:confused:
Please help!

    Assuming the product is a wordpress theme:

    Check the content of the .zip file and if there is any folder other than the theme folder, extract the .zip file, then "zip" only the theme folder.

    Next:

    1. Login to your WP dashboard.
    2. Click "Appearance" on the left side.
    3. Go to the "Install Themes" tab by clicking on it.
    4. Click "Upload"
    5. Click "Choose File" and select the .zip file containing the theme.
    6. Click "Install Now"

    Once it is installed, go back to the "Manage Themes" tab and activate the theme from there.

    Jude,

    The instructions Charles outlined will work to install the theme. It will not work to add all the content. In order to accomplish that you will have to input the content into the WP db.

    What format is the file that you received containing the content?
