Thank you so much for purchasing Blomst theme. I know you’ll love it so let’s get it all setup.
In this order you need to:
- Unzip the download you received. It will contain blomst.zip and cp-blomst-widgets.wie to allow you to import the correct widgets to the widget areas.
- Install Genesis theme. Do this by logging in to your WordPress dashboard and going to Appearance > Themes and then select the Add new button. Select the zip file but you don’t need to activate it.
- Repeat step 2 to install the Blomst theme file and activate it.
- Install the plugins listed below.
