Error: The active theme is broken. Reverting to the default theme. (3 posts)

    I have a fresh install of WP 3.2.1 on my localhost. bbPress is the only active plugin. When I try to select the bbPress theme I get the following message:

    The active theme is broken. Reverting to the default theme.

    This is known to happen on certain Windows localhost configurations. It's a WordPress core bug caused by the way plugins register their custom theme directories.

    See http://bbpress.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/1596 for the back story.

    Is this going to be fixed soon? I'm encountering the same error.

    What's strange is that I get a message saying the theme installed successfully, but when I click "Activate" I get the 'theme is broken' message - the theme that 'installed successfully' isn't even visible in my Themes list.
