Downloading a WordPress Theme From ThemeForest

After you have successfully purchased a WordPress theme from ThemeForest, you might be wondering what to do next. In this article we will show you how and where you can download your WordPress theme.

The first thing to do is to go to your Envato account’s Downloads page as shown in the image below.

After going to your Downloads page you will see a page where you can find all your purchased items. Find the item you want to download and click on the green Download button on the right to display a popup with download options.
