I'm trying to upload frame market into themes and activate it. My site is live. How do I do this? It says it is a parent theme and won't allow me to just quickly make a site.

    You need to implement the included child theme and then activate it:

    Theme Installation and Use Instructions
    Installing a theme from WPMU DEV

    Download the theme file
    Unzip the file into a folder on your hard drive
    Upload the folder to /wp-content/themes/ folder on your site

    From the link:
    Make sure your install path is correct for example: /wp-content/themes/framemarket not /wp-content/themes/themes/framemarket
    If you're using multi-site you'll need to visit Network Admin -> Themes and Activate it there.

    For the GridMarket Child Theme

    Inside wp-content/themes/framemarket you'll see another directory entitled themes with a gridmarket folder. Move this folder to the same wp-content/themes directory to match framemarket as shown below:
    BEFORE: wp-content/themes/framemarket/themes/gridmarket
    AFTER: wp-content/themes/gridmarket

    To find out more about parent and children themes please visit our guide to parent and child themes.

    Greetings jlhiatt7,

    I have included a link below to add to what Rob has kindly submitted that should further give you an understanding of the parent/child relationship in themes or at least how they are set up correctly in a graphic way enhancing Robs explanation.

    Thank you for being a WPMU Dev Member!

    Cheers, Joe
