How To Install a ShowIt Website Template

Website Design, Digital Marketing

So, you bought a ShowIt template! Awesome! Whether it’s one of my templates or not, I am pumped for you. I LOVE the ShowIt platform, and I know you will too.

And as I always promise, I want to cut out all the fluff. And with that said, let’s dive straight into it. I want to show you how simple it is to install a ShowIt website template.

 

STEP 1:
Login to your ShowIt account. Go to your ShowIt dashboard.

 

STEP 2:
On the lower left-hand corner of the dashboard, you will see your name. Click on that.

 

STEP 3:
This window (see the screenshot below) will appear after clicking on your name.
