    Hi Janpol,

    You have to download and install layers itself first as a theme.
    Go to layerswp.com and click download then go to your dashboard and go to themes – upload and select layerswp package you just downloaded.

    Follow the setup steps then go back to the dashboard go to plugins -> add plugin -> upload the layers pro package and click activate after install.

    You got the error because you wanted to install layers pro as a theme as it is a plugin and layers itself is the theme.

    Kind regards

    I did this but previewing the updated Layers Pro showed really bad changes to my website (extra menus, extra headers, weird advertising, changes in font style and just a terrifying mishmash of elements).
    So I didn’t save and activate it.
    Why on earth doesn’t it just keep all settings as is? Do I have to re-do the whole thing from scratch after installing Layers Pro? This is definitely an issue. BTW I can’t contact you through Messenger because I haven’t installed Pro for fear of screwing up my site completely. Really disappointed.
