We have posted the first look of Twenty Thirteen WordPress theme which is very colourful and refreshing. Apart from being responsive and a designer theme, it is really fast. The theme is not officially released yet on WordPress.org but you can checkout the demo on this page. If you want to download and use Twenty Thirteen theme on your local site or any of your live site running on self hosted WordPress, then here is the way to download the theme from WordPress.
Twenty Thirteen is not yet released on WordPress.org but it is available on the SVN of WordPress.com. You can download the theme from there by using any SVN client. We have already written an article on how to download the WordPress.com theme and use that on self hosted WordPress.org site. Using a SVN client like SVN Tortoise, you can download Twenty Thirteen and test on your site. You need to use the ‘URL of Repository’ as “https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/twentythirteen/” and download the files on local system.
Enter the details in SVN Client
Download process started on SVN
Now you can upload the folder on your site’s hosting server inside the ‘wp-content/themes’ folder and activate the theme. After the official release, you may need to re-upload the theme on your server if it releases with few fixes or improvements.
Update – You can also download the Twenty Thirteen WordPress theme using this direct link.
