How to Install Thesis Skin

Before we start with our Tutorial on How to Install Thesis skin, I would suggest you to check out Thesis Theme review and also list of Free Thesis skins. Thesis free skins made it very easy for non coders like you and me to design and customize our Blog.

Thesis theme framework is one of the top SEO optimized WordPress theme till the date. ShoutMeLoud is using Thesis for long and it helps it to lower down plugins and most important improve overall Blog SEO. Though despite of flexible design panel, customizing Thesis is not as easy as it sounds. You need to have atleast knowledge of CSS to customize Thesis,else despite of having a powerful SEO optimize theme, your design might not attract readers. So what are the options we have? Hire a Thesis designer to customize your skin or you can use custom pre made Thesis skins.

Guide to Install Thesis Skin:

Thesis skins is like a child theme for Thesis which will help you to get started with a custom Thesis site within minutes. You can install any no. of Thesis skins at one time and you can switch to different design according to your choice.  .

THESIS SKINS are the pre made CSS styles which can be applied on orignal Thesis theme to customize it. You can download many Free/Premium thesis skins online and add them to your existing non edited thesis.

Some Free thesis skins -:

  • Thesis Bold

Installing Skins

  1. Install and activate the Thesis Import / Export plugin (you should go to the plugins control panel at this point to make a backup of all your current Thesis settings in case you need them) .
  2. Upload the skin files to your Thesis custom folder
  3. Use the Thesis Import / Export plugin to automatically set all the correct Thesis options!

It’s really that simple!

You can also edit the colour pattern and many more as your wish later. Most of Thesis skins come with option and design panel to quickly make changes and to add advertisements. We have already created a list of top free Thesis skins and you can pick any of them. Though remember, some of the thesis skins club might have changed their TOS, so don’t forget to check that too.

      Hi, Im having enormous problems installing a thesis skin.
      I can do step 1 and2, of your instructions (below), but i don’t know what to do in step 3. I have tried all the options I can think for completing step 3 but to no avail. It messes up every time. What am I supposed to do in step 3 once i get to the import/export page?
      1. Install and activate the Thesis Import / Export plugin (you should go to the plugins control panel at this point to make a backup of all your current Thesis settings in case you need them) .
      2. Upload the skin files to your Thesis custom folder
      3. Use the Thesis Import / Export plugin to automatically set all the correct Thesis options!
      Would be grateful for help.
