1. The 1st Option – Install Traveler Through WordPress

Step 1 – Download Traveler from Themeforest

If you’ve purchased Traveler at Themeforest, you’ll need to download the theme file before you try and install it. Simply log into your account, go to your downloads and locate your theme. Click on the download button and select the “Installable WordPress file only”. This will download the zip file for your theme.

If you downloaded Theme Package, unzip it and find the traveler.zip file inside.

 

Step 2 – Log in to your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes then click on Add New.

 

Step 3 – Click on Upload Theme then click on the Choose File button and find the Traveler zip file on your computer. Then click on “Install Now”

Step 4 – Wait for the theme to upload and install. It may take a while. Once the installation is finished, click on the Activate button on the installation results page or in Appearance > Themes.

Step 5 – Almost finished! Now, you’ll need to install the Traveler bundled plugin. To do that, find the notification box that appears at the top in the WordPress admin area and click on it.

The next guide is to register the theme to be able to install demos and plugins or contact support.

2. The 2nd Option – Install Traveler Through FTP

Step 1 – Log in your hosting space via an FTP software. We recommend use FileZilla software to upload theme.
You should transfer text files like PHP files via ASCII transfer type, and for other types of files such as Images, you should use Binary transfer type, otherwise you can get errors.

Step 2 – Unzip the traveler.zip file and ONLY use the extracted Traveler theme folder

Step 3 – Upload the extracted Traveler theme folder into wp-content > themes folder

Step 4 – Activate the theme: Go to Appearance > Themes and Activate.

Step 5 – Almost finished! Now, you’ll need to install the Traveler bundled plugin. To do that, find the notification box that appears at the top in the WordPress admin area and click on it.

3. Troubleshooting

3.1. Downloading the Wrong Theme Zip File

Make absolutely, positively sure you select the “Installable WordPress file only” option. If you select “All files & documentation” by mistake, you will not be able to install this zip as is. Instead unzip the file and then locate the installable theme file within it. Luckily most developers clearly label their files, so it should be pretty easy to find.

3.2. Stylesheet Is Missing

If after clicking “Install Now” you see an error that “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet,” then you probably didn’t follow our instructions from step 1. You more than likely downloaded the “All files & Documentation” instead of the the installable theme. Go back and double check that you’ve downloaded the correct file.

3.3.Are You Sure You Want to Do This?

After browsing for your theme and clicking the “Install Now” button, it’s possible your WordPress installation will ask “Are you sure you want to do this?” This could be due to the fact that you are trying to install the wrong zip file (remember – you want the “Installable WordPress file only”) or it’s possible the upload limit on your server isn’t large enough.

If it’s the latter, you’ll need to contact your hosting company to have them increase it, or do it yourself by accessing your PHP.INI file via FTP and increasing the upload_max_filesize value.

3.4. White Screen

If you attempt to install your theme, and end up on a white screen of death (you know, the WordPress version of the Windows blue screen of death) you probably need to make a tweak to your server. The most common cause of this error is that your server’s memory limit to PHP is too low. To solve this either:

  • Contact your hosting provider to have them increase your memory limit
  • Access your hosting cPanel to increase your memory limit
