Reply To: Help Uploading Akita to Other Domain

Do I have to use my WordPress admin panel to upload?

No, it doesn’t matter. As with any WordPress theme, the theme folder just needs to be in your /wp-content/themes directory of your WordPress installation. Whether you upload it there with your FTP program or you let WordPress do it, it makes no difference.

I’ve followed the instructions on your videos to the letter nad have successfully uploaded the theme to the subdirectory wp/wp-content/themes where the unzipped contents are resting. So how do I access the cms to modify and upload my own assets.

Once the theme folder is in your WordPress themes directory, then you need to activate it. Go back to your WordPress admin panel, and go to Appearance > Themes, find the theme, and click “Activate”.

Then to start customizing it, go to Appearance > Theme Options
