Reddle
[resolved] Reddle is Broken!! (19 posts)

    I used the Reddle theme immediately when I started my blog - DearestBlog.Com - in August. I have tried to download every version but nothing works. I erased some and re-loaded, too, but that didn't work.

    Had some trouble with site a couple of times while making changes a while back, and the last time my folks at BlueHost said my Reddle theme was broken and I needed to use another theme. I kid you not - I have checked out hundreds of themes and cannot find one I like as well! When I go to "Install Themes", every time I try to re-install Reddle, it tells me the style sheet is missing. Please Help!

    Sorry - meant to say that I downloaded and re-loaded the theme in the second paragraph - that looks confusing!!

    Basically, Reddle says it's missing a style sheet and that it's broken.

    Could you post a link to a screenshot of the issue? It's not apparent for me.

    Can you try deactivating all plugins as well?

    I just tried that, but it wasn't successful. I think my IT guy at Bluehost did that, too. He came to the conclusion that Reddle was the problem. But others can use it, right?

    I'll try it out to explore this.

    How did you install the theme? I mean, are you uploading it through the dashboard?

    I just tried that theme on a test site and have no problems. Have you tried switching to another theme, deleting it and then reinstalling it?

    Also, before you do that, deactivate ALL plugins and see if that makes any difference.

    I've worked with plenty of themes lately, trying new ones out. Is that what you mean? I've also turned off all plugins while trying Reddle and it doesn't work. So strange, because every other theme I've tried has worked!! I want that frankin thing back!

    And yep, I'm installing it through the Dashboard.

    Delete it completely, and then reinstall it.

    The "Broken Theme" comment won't delete! All other themes I've tried are deleted, but that one, as a Broken Theme, will not go!

    You mean the theme won't delete?

    Can you try deleting the Reddle folder via FTP instead of the dashboard?

    Be sure to download and back it up on your local computer if you made any changes to the theme on your server.
