Install

I have downloaded LifeInSharePoint.SharePoint2013.Branding.wsp file.

Now what do I do with it? Can't find any installation instructions on this site or the web.

Bearing in mind that I did this for 2010 and the commands for 2013 may be slightly different...

First off, install on the server. I ran the following 2 commands in a Sharepoint command prompt:

Add-SPSolution "<c:\path_to_downloaded_file>\LifeInSharePoint.Metro.wsp"
Install-SPSolution -Identify lifeinsharepoint.metro.wsp -Force -GACDeployment -AllWebApplications
iisreset

Okay, so that's 3 commands and the iisreset isn't probably necessary.

Now go to your top-level SharePoint site, Site Settings and then Site Collection Features.
You're looking for "SITE.LifeInSharePoint.Metro" - Activate that and then panic as it reset the site master pages to use the new one. Head back to "Look and Feel", "Master Page" to put your master back to the one it was before.
