1. Install Genesis + Restored 316 Theme

Installing the Genesis Framework

All of our themes require the Genesis Framework in order to work. If you do not have a copy of this yet, you can purchase it right here. This is a one-time purchase and you can use it on as many sites as you like. It also includes lifetime updates.

Download the Genesis Framework to your computer. Do not unzip the files.

If your computer is automatically unzipping this file, you can right click and either hit zip or compress to zip it back up.

Once you have this file saved to your computer, you’ll install the Genesis Framework to WordPress before you upload your Restored 316 theme.


1. Navigate to APPEARANCE > THEMES

2. Click the ADD NEW Button at the top

3. Click the UPLOAD THEME button.

4. Click CHOOSE FILE, browse your computer and select the Genesis.zip file. NOTE: It may say Genesis.2.4.1.zip or something similar.

5. When the file has been selected, click INSTALL NOW.

Do NOT activate the theme and move on to the next step!

Install your Restored 316 Theme

Once you have Genesis installed, you’re ready to install your new Restored 316 theme! We’ll use the same steps we used to install the Genesis Framework, but this time we are going to activate the theme!
