Found a theme you like? What's next?
After you find a theme you like, you can put this theme into your site's themes folder to make it available for your site to use. To do so, follow these steps:
- Save the theme of your choice to your local folder system (i.e., save to your desktop).
- Open up a sftp session to the drupal-dev server using SSH ftp, Fetch, or other client of your choice. (See Development Server: Logging In).
- Navigate to the themes folder for your site. This should be a path similar to /home/drupal/usra/htdocs/drupal/sites/<yoursitename>.udel.edu/themes.
- Upload the folder that contains your theme.
- The theme is now available for use within your site. To learn more about selecting the theme for your site or configuring your theme, read Selecting a UDrupal Theme or Configuring a Theme.
