Choi, my WiFi is messing up ooo.
Airtel is wack in my area, so I can’t hotspot.
Go on anyways, I’ll try and keep up with the general “gist” via my phone.
The Appearance button should take you to the Themes page below:
Now, any time you install a fresh WP on your website, there is sample dummy theme installed by default. Theme is another word for template, the back end guys call it a template, the front end guys call it a theme.
So after you download your WP Template, you come here to install it by clicking the Add New button.
Wait o… I think I’m really lost here.
Haven’t activated the link you sent to me yet.
My days have not been so wonderful lately so I haven’t participated in the class yet.

I haven’t decided.
Which do you prefer ?
