WordPress - Theme Seller Support

There are two main benefits to buying a theme support subscription; Seller Support and Auto Installation.

Seller Support

When you purchase a theme subscription you get access to Seller Support, the Theme Seller’s support forum. From there you can contact the theme developer for help with:

  • The features and functionality included with the theme
  • How the theme is designed
  • How to get the most functionality out of the theme
  • Third-party assets or plugins that may be included with the theme

Auto Installation

We will help you install your theme to as many of your Bluehost sites as you need. Without a support subscription, you can still install your theme manually—it just takes a little more time.
Where to find our auto-installer:

  1. Navigate to My Sites in the side navigation menu to the left.
  2. Hover over the site, and click the Manage Site button.
  3. In the first box on the left, click the Manage button under Themes.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the Purchased Premium Themes section.
  5. Click the Install Theme button.

How to contact a theme seller for support

You have access to Seller Support (a theme seller support forum) as part of your theme subscription. Here, you can ask the seller about:

  • The features and functionality of the theme
  • How the theme is designed
  • How to get the most functionality out of the theme
  • Third-party assets included with the theme, such as plugins, that may be bundled with the theme
