    There is already a theme called 'journalist' by a different author. Please change the name of your theme in style.css and upload it again.

    Every template has this same error message.

    Any resolution?

    Thanks,

    Hey Art, the same message also appears when I try to upload a theme. "There is already a theme called "whatever" by a different author. Please change the name of your theme in style.css and upload it again."

    Anybody else ever received this error message? What did you do to resolve it?

    I am getting the same message. All I need is instructions on how to proceed. The page says upload and they'll do the rest.

    This happened to me once. I just changed the name of the theme folder. I know it sounds weird, but it worked for me :-)
