# Installing a Theme

After successfully creating a theme and exporting it as a zip file it is time now to install it and confirm if everything works as expected.

QloApps provides three methods of importing a theme. We are going to discuss each one in detail.

What method to choose depends on your accessibility of the theme zip file.

To install a theme follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Preferences > Themes.
  2. Click on Add new theme at the top right of the page.
  3. You will be presented with three options to choose from as shown below:

  • IMPORT FROM YOUR COMPUTER: If you have the file available on computer from where you are accessing back office.
  • IMPORT FROM THE WEB: If you have the file available on some kind of online storage and have public access to it.
  • IMPORT FROM FTP: If you have the file available on your server inside /themes folder.
  1. Choose the appropriate method and click Save.
  2. You will be notified for successful upload on the next page and your uploaded theme will be listed in the bottom section along with others.
