    Please see this thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cheatin-uh?replies=32

    It appears to be a problem with a number of Themes.

    If you need more help, please indicate what Theme (and version) you are using.

    Thanks for responding. This is a Theme problem that you will need to work through with the company who sells this Theme. Unfortunately, I cannot even see the Support Forums that the company offers to advise you further, but that is where I would start. I think this is the right link:
    https://www.elegantthemes.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=12&sid=bc60b4c0424bb500e5c8e3a4f793afbd

    Hopefully, you have an ID and password as a customer of theirs.

    I could not even determine the current version of this theme because they block access. Sigh.

    Your best hope now is in contacting the other people that you bought the theme from for Support. They may even have access to a newer version of the Theme or get you access to the support forums.

    I am also receiving the "cheatin uh" message when I attempt to upload media files to the slide show in the inFocus theme. I have only starting having this issue after updating to the WordPress 3.4 software. I am at a lost. Someone please help.

    Here is how to fix the issue in your themes that I mentioned yesterday. Find the same line in your theme and the problem will be solved (it will be in a .js file). It's not the theme developers faults, but rather a change in the WP core: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cheatin-uh-when-trying-to-upload-media-via-3rd-party-theme?replies=2#post-2999148

    It is the theme developer's fault. Any theme that causes this error has not been coded correctly right from the start.

    1. Login to your plesk/cpanel, whatever you use. Locate
    wp-admin/media-upload.php

    Open the media-upload.php with the code editor scroll down to line #125 and change the code

    if ( ! empty( $_REQUEST['post_id'] ) && ! current_user_can( 'edit_post' , $_REQUEST['post_id'] ) )

    to

    if ( ! empty( $_REQUEST['post_id'] ) && current_user_can( 'edit_post' , $_REQUEST['post_id'] ) )

    Make sure you don't touch line 126 with a code that looks like this wp_die( __( 'Cheatin’ uh?' ) );----- DON'T TOUCH THIS
    Save and get back to your wordpress admin panel, make sure you have cleared your cache and this should do it. Let me know if you have any other fixes.. Good luck..
