How to install Overlay Premium

May 31, 2019

It’s a very simple process to install Overlay Pro… After purchase you would have been redirected from PayPal back to our website where you can then download the premium zip file, and get your license key to activate your updates for the Overlay Premium theme.

You would have received an email too where you can download the premium zip file.

If for some reason you cannot find these emails or your license key, then you can also login to your account and get them there.

Install from the zip file as normal:

The simplest way to install the Overlay Pro theme is to delete the old free theme from your WordPress Dashboard and then you will be able to install the new premium zip file as normal.

Install the zip file by going to Appearance -> Themes -> Add New –> Upload Theme in your Dashboard.

Install using the Easy Upgrades plugin:

If you’re worried about losing your theme settings when upgrading, you really shouldn’t, but if so, then you can also use the “Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades” plugin which will let you install the new premium zip and it will copy over the free version and keep everything the same.

Install and activate the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades Plugin.

That’s all needed for the plugin… there are no configuration or settings for this plugin.

You can now simply install your new Overlay Pro theme zip file to replace over the old free theme as normal.

Go to Appearance -> Themes -> Add New -> Upload Theme, Choose the zip file and click Install.

Watch the video on how to do this:

Once you’ve completed the upgrade, you can then delete the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin.

If you’re still not able to do the install yourself, then contact us for help.
