I bought a themeforest theme, modernize, which says it is a wordpress theme. How, in the good name of GOD, do I get it so I can begin setting up my wordpress pro site???It gives me the generic twenty-whatever theme but I cannot find any link or button that allows me to upload or change to this theme that I bought. I have searched google, tried to place the unzipped file in the wordpress file but nothing works. If it helps, I am using a MAC

If the zip file of the theme you have is correctly constructed to be easily installed using WordPress, you would simply go to WordPress Dashboard and then;
After you upload it and under the Managed Themes, you would see your theme. If not activated, click the small link that says "activate" under the theme screenshot.
If the zip file is not properly constructed. You would have to unzip all files, and upload them using FTP client under the following directory
If after you unzipped, you have files like "page.php, index.php, categories.php, etc.." you would have to create a directory with whatever name. In the above link structure it would be where it states nameofyourtheme. If you unzipped and you have one directory and in that directory you have "page.php, index.php, categories.php, etc.." type files, you would upload that whole directory containing those files under /wp-content/themes. So in the end, after upload the "page.php, etc.." files should be under
Hope that helps and answers your question.
