Trouble uploading zip file theme (5 posts)

    Hi Everyone,

    I recently purchased a theme from ThemeForest and downloaded it as a zip file to re-upload onto WordPress using the Upload feature under 'Install Themes'. However, every time I've tried to do this, it's taken quite a few minutes in the process of uploading but comes back with a message saying upload failed. I cannot fathom what I'm doing wrong and how to go about successfully installing this theme so was hoping that someone would have some advice?

    Thank you all!

    ya that is becoz on ur server it dont have write permission so for that u can directely upload the theme file to ur webspace through ur cpanel in to ur wp-content/theme folder and unzip there the theme through cpanel and u r done u will then get it visible into ur wp site.

    This thread explains some other ways to add themes:

    If you can't get any of them to work, you'll need to contact ThemeForest for help with their commercial theme - as these forums don't provide support for commercial themes.

    I downloaded a wordpress template, which was a zipped file. It resides in "download"
    when I went to the upload through the admin of my url site the zip file, which is ALL the files of the template, will not load.
    I see there is a file in the complete template zip files that is called "theme" but there is no way, I can tell, to separate this file from the rest of the template to upload it alone...
