Theme Installation

After purchasing Gauch, please download the package from ThemeForest. All you need to do is moving your mouse over your login name at the right top corner – after you log in ThemeForest, and then click Downloads.

Here you will find all the items that you have purchased. Hover to Download button next to Gauch, you will see these download options:

  • Installable WordPress file only which you can upload when installing the theme
  • All files & documentation (full zip folder). You will need to extract and locate the installable WordPress file to upload when installing the theme

If you are updating your website theme from an older version then please make sure taking Backup of the complete website Files and the Database for any future reference.
