This tutorial goes over how to install the Pacific theme into Weebly. This is a very simple procedure and shouldn't take more than a minute. Ready? Let's go.
(You may have already done this) Simply download the theme via the download link on your purchase confirmation page, or through the email you received. Save this file somewhere on your computer.
Open up the downloaded .zip (called either "Pacific-Standard.zip" or "Pacific-Developer.zip" and extract its contents. You should see a few PDF's and a folder that says "upload what's inside" (where the actual theme file lives).
To use Pacific, you will need to install it as a theme on top of an existing Weebly website. If you have one, great! If not, simply create a Weebly site with any default Weebly theme and continue on to step 4.
In the Weebly editor for your Weebly website, click on the "theme" tab. Then, click on the "Change Theme" button in the left sidebar. This will take you to a screen with all the themes.
In the theme gallery, click on the "import theme" button in the upper righthand corner of your screen.
Many people mistakenly upload the entire downloaded folder, which yields an error. Instead, be sure to only upload the .zip file that is within the "upload what's inside" folder. Make sure you upload the .zip file that is included inside the "upload what's inside" folder. Do not upload the entire Pacific folder as this will yield an error. The file you upload should look something like "pacifictheme1.zip" depending on the version of your theme.
Users often mistakenly upload their entire downloaded theme folder. Don't do this--it will generate an upload error. Instead, be sure to navigate to the downloaded folder, open up the "upload what's inside" folder, and upload the .zip file that's within this folder.
After you select the theme for upload, it will seem like nothing is happening. Give Weebly a minute or two, as the theme is uploading in the background. Upon successful upload, the popup will disappear and you'll be taken to the "custom themes" page.
After the theme is done uploading, you will be taken to the "custom themes" page where you should see the Pacific theme. Click on the blue "choose" button. That's it! From now on, your Pacific theme will live here, in the custom themes section of your theme library. You will be taken to your Weebly website with Pacific applied. But we're not done yet--continue reading below.
Be Advised: After Installation, We Recommend Refreshing Your Browser.
Your site should now look like the image on the right. Pacific is now installed on your site! Pacific won't look like the demo right away, you'll need to play around with the settings and add content/layouts. At this point, we recommend going to the "setting up Pacific" tutorial.
After you install Pacific, you may notice that your Weebly site looks different from the Pacific demo. This is because Weebly does not allow theme providers to sell themes with pre-existing content. Our Pacific demo runs on the exact same Pacific theme, but with content and images added. As you add content to your theme, it'll look closer and closer to the demo.If you want your website to look identical to the demo with placeholder images and text, we offer a service called the Demo Content Creation Service. With this package, one of our designers login remotely to your site, and manually build all the demo content onto your site within 24 hours.
