Option 1: Via “Envato Market” plugin (recommended)

If you already have the “Envato Market Plugin” installed on your site then just go to Admin > Envato Market and install the theme from there. If not, than download the plugin by clicking on this link and install the plugin on your site. After installation, you need to configure it. Just go to this link to know how to configure this plugin.

Than just go to Admin > Envato Market plugin menu and install the theme. The theme would be available to install so you can easily install it.

Option 2: Via FTP client

Use an FTP client such as FileZilla, FireFTP or Cyberduck (if you are a Mac user) to connect to your hosting account. Navigate to where WordPress is installed and locate the /wp-content/themes/ directory.

Find the zip file called “” in downloaded file, unzip it and upload the folder to the folder /wp-content/themes/.

After all file uploaded, just go to Admin > Appearance and activate Constro theme.


Option 3: Through the native WordPress theme uploader (not recommended due to big size of theme)

First you need to unzip the download file and find the zip file called After this you have to go in the admin panel > Appearance > Themes (see the image on the right), click on the Install Themes tab and in this section in the top left corner click on the link Upload.

Plugins Installation

After theme installation and activation, it will redirect you to welcome screen, where you can start installation of required plugin by clicking “Proceed” button. Clicking on “Proceed” will lead you to the plugin installation page.

If you are guided to some other page, instead of Welcome screen, it will display a notice in Admin Panel to install required and recommended plugins. You can click “Begin installing Plugins” to proceed plugin installation.

Constro requires some plugins to be install to run various theme functionalities properly. Few plugins will be installed from WordPress Plugins Repository and few plugins are bundled with theme. On plugin installation page, it will display list of required and recommended plugins.
