Setting up Word press themes is very hard

Hi, 

I have found it very difficult to select new themes or changing themes. Once I select the theme and try to view it, it does not show or apply at all. Also when I want to change it, the changes do not take place. 

 

While editing, it shows the theme I am using and I am happy about it, but when I publish it then it does not show at all. 

 

Please help me. 

 

Regards,

Asim Khan

Hi, 

 

I just learned that in order to change the theme you need to go to appearance and choose customize. Then start editing that theme and publish it. It starts to work then. Also in the plesk dashboard you need to select the theme as well.

Generally speaking you should not have to do anything in Plesk to adjust plugins / themes in WordPress - it is there as an "FYI" tool

I'm a bit confused by your question / steps - It sounds like you are changing the theme in the GoDaddy Websites + Marketing platform vs WordPress - perhaps you can post a screen capture
