Login to wordpress

Login to your WordPress site. You can do this by going to the dashboard and clicking on the “Dashboard” button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Once you’re there, click on Settings > Appearance > Themes (if you don’t see this option, then try refreshing your browser) or click here directly: https://yoursite/.

If you’re not logged in yet, use this link: https://yoursite/wp-login.php

Go to appearance in the menu on the left

To delete a theme from your WordPress site, you will need to go to Appearance in the menu on the left side of your dashboard. From here, click on Themes and then choose one of them (by clicking its name).

Once you’ve found that theme, simply tap or click Delete on its title bar and it will be removed immediately!


Click themes

You can delete a theme from WordPress by going to Appearance > Themes. Click on the Theme you want to delete, then choose Delete.

Hover over your theme you want to delete and click delete

When you hover over your theme and click “deactivate”, it will take you to the following screen:

  • Uninstall button. Clicking this will delete all of the files related to that theme, including any images and custom CSS stylesheets.
  • Delete button. Clicking this button will delete everything associated with that particular theme from WordPress’ database–including posts and pages created by users who have installed it in their sites–but not all themes are compatible with this method of removal (some require manual deletion).
