 +====== Installing and Activating Your Theme ======
  
 +So, you've designed your theme and exported from Lightroom. Now you have a folder full of files, and you're wondering what to do with them.
 +
 +If you're following these steps in order, you should already have a functional installation of WordPress running the default WordPress theme. If you haven't installed WordPress yet, [[Installing WordPress|get on it]].
 +
 +What you want to do is upload your exported theme -- as a folder! -- into the ''%%/wp-content/themes/%%'' folder of your WordPress installation. Assuming you've installed the blog to ''%%http://yourdomain.com/blog/%%'', you would then have your theme files located at:
 +
 +''%%/blog/wp-content/themes/YOUR-THEME/%%''
 +
 +This done, login to your WordPress Dashboard (''%%http://yourdomain.com/blog/wp-admin/%%''). On the left, access Appearance and then Themes. Among your installed themes -- the defaults, plus any others you may have installed previously -- you will now find TTG CE2 Theme for WordPress. Press the Activate link and you've done it -- TTG is all up in your blog.
