How to Install a Premium WordPress Theme from WPZOOM

How to Download a Premium WPZOOM Theme

First you need to download the theme ZIP file from the link provided in your WPZOOM member area:

Your browser downloaded a folder instead of a ZIP file?

The Solution:

To download the theme as a ZIP file in Safari you will have to Right-click on the download button and select “Download Linked File“. You can also disable this feature in the Safari Settings – view instructions.

Another quick solution is to Compress the downloaded folder into a ZIP archive:
