Installing and configuring a suitable theme

You'll need a suitable theme in your site to make your videos stand out. I'm going to use the Keratin theme which is grid-based with a right-hand sidebar. A grid-based theme works well as people can see your videos on your home page and category pages.

Installing the theme

Let's install the theme:

  1. Go to Appearance | Themes.
  2. Click on the Add New button.
  3. In the search box, type Keratin.
  4. The theme will be listed. Click on the Install button.
  5. When prompted, click on the Activate button.

The theme will now be displayed in your admin screen as active:
