    I have tried to upload paid for themes from 'Elegant themes' but cannot do so:
    The theme is called 'elist'

    after the zip file gets compressed onto my Mac it gets split like this and so cannot download the 'elist folder':
    changelog.txt
    comments.php
    css
    epanel
    footer.php
    functions.php
    header.php
    home.php
    images
    includes
    index.php
    js
    lang
    license.txt
    listing_content-single.php
    loop-page.php
    loop-single.php
    page-blog.php
    page-contact.php
    page-full.php
    page-gallery.php
    page-login.php
    page-search.php
    page-sitemap.php
    page-template-portfolio.php
    page.php
    psd
    ptemplate-submit.php
    sampledata
    screenshot.jpg
    sidebar.php
    single-listing.php
    single.php
    style.css
    taxonomy-listing_category.php
    taxonomy-listing_tag.php

    so i cannot upload it to the WP dash
    so then i copied the zip file onto the desktop
    then this error message comes up:

    The uploaded file could not be moved to /hermes/bosweb26a/b167/ipg.reallyusefulworldcom/wp-content/uploads/2011/12.

    If you're having problems with the built-in uploader, you can always install a theme manually with an FTP client or a file browser offered by your host. Links that might help to manually install a theme:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes#Adding_New_Themes

    Since you have a premium theme, you should be able to get theme specific support from the developers/sellers.
