How to Install a Ghost Theme

You are able to upload, activate, and delete a Ghost theme in the admin section of your Ghost blog. You can also drop the theme into the Ghost files manually. It is recommended to upload through the Ghost admin, but here is how to do both anyway:

Log into the admin section of your Ghost blog
Generalunder settings in the left hand column and scroll to the very bottom.
Upload a theme
Click on the area shown and locate the zip file for your theme.
Note: Your theme must be in zip format at this time, so if your theme is a folder, you must re-zip it.
- Once it is uploaded, click on either

Unzip your theme if needed. If you are using the command line, here is the command for that:

sudo cp -R /path/to/theme/folder /path/to/ghost/content/themes/.
- Restart your Ghost blog
