If you want to install and use the PG-Blog theme as is and automatically receive ALL the future updates just like a theme from the WordPress repository, you can install it through the Github-updater plugin.

This plugin was designed to simply update any GitHub/Bitbucket hosted WordPress plugin or theme.

Go to https://github.com/afragen/github-updater

  1. Download the latest tagged archive (choose the “zip” option).
  2. Rename the ZIP as github-updater.zip (and not github-updater-develop.zip)
  3. In WordPress, from Plugins > Add New> Upload Plugin > select github-updater.zip (the ZIP file that you have just downloaded)
  4. Activate the plugin

Still in your WordPress admin, from Settings > Github Updater proceed to the following configuration.

From the Install Theme tab:

  1. Enter https://bitbucket.org/earnoud/pg_blog in the Theme URI field
  2. Set the Remote Repository Host to Bitbucket
  3. Click on Install Theme

And that’s it!

From now, each time a new version is available, you will receive a notice and you will be able to proceed to the automatic update of the theme!

Convenient isn’t it?
