How To Import A Weebly Template in 5 Easy steps

Step 1 – Download your theme
Once you have purchased your theme, download it and you will find a zip file named “parent-[theme name]-[theme package]-[version].zip”
(EG: parent-parallax-std-v.3.1.zip)

If you are using an apple/Safari, please ensure you turn the option off to Open “safe” files after downloading.

Step 2 – Preparing the Theme for install
Find the file you have downloaded and unzip it. You should now see a new zip file called “[template name]-INSTALL.zip”
(EG: parallax-std-INSTALL.zip)

Step 3 – Open your website in Weebly
log into Weebly and create/open site you want to install the theme on.

If you’re migrating your existing website to our theme we suggest you install the theme on a copy of your website and publish to a temporary domain until you’re ready to put live.
