Failure notice when uploading MayaShop theme (6 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I just purchased the MayaShop WordPress theme via ThemeForest, and I'm trying to get it working.

    I'm supposed to go to Appearance - Themes - Install Themes - Upload and then select the Maya.zip file to upload. I do so, and for quite a while it says 'sending request to' with my website URL behind it. After a long time it gives me the error: "WordPress Failure Notice. Are you sure you want to do this? Please try again."

    I've tried three times, double-checked I have the right file.
    Hope anyone on here can help me out. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Do you have the same problem with other themes? Try downloading one from the repository on this site to test whether it's specific to that theme. If so, you'll need to ask Theme Forest for help with it.

    Try manually installing it using FTP -

    Beyond that, ask ThemeForest for help - as commercial themes aren't supported on these forums -

    Start by getting FTP access to your site set up - that's something you will need to ask your hosting company about - it's not part of WP but it IS very necessary for any kind of web/server work. Also see:

    Then reread the article above - I'm not sure how to put it more simply.

    Or ask the people you got the theme from - these forums only support themes from here:
