    Hello,

    when i go to appearance theme install theme and make a filtered search I get this message

    ''An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    Try again ''

    I've had it for a long time, I usually find the theme on the net download it, upload it and then it works but I'd like to solve this problem once and for all.

    My WordPress is up-to-date.I installed it with Filezilla.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Did you try uploading the theme via Filezilla?

    no, I can upload it through WordPress interface which seems to me quicker.

    what I can't do is browsing the themes directly from WordPress : I have to go to other websites (which increase the risk of stumbling upon unofficial theme).

    You can find themes from WordPress.Org here:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/

    I can upload it through WordPress interface which seems to me quicker.

    Did you try reinstalling WordPress (except wp-content)? That will probably solve the problem.

    I checked the page you sent and it's the same filtered search as in wordpress so It's fine.

    The wordpress I'm on was installed last week.

    I had previously the same problem with other install of wordpress.

    I'm a bit afraid of reinstalling as I could loose my content.

    thank you for your help.

    Reinstalling will not make any loss of content. Still you can backup your database for reinstalling if anything goes wrong.
