    Likely your zip program created a double folder

    Correct
    /wp-content/themes/yourthemefolder/themefiles

    Way it likely is
    /wp-content/themes/yourthemefolder/yourthemefolder/themefiles

    Me too I have the same problem, and I do not see a double folder. I am wondering if the theme I chose is OK with the version of WordPress I have but I do not know how to check.

    I tried to upload 2 other theme to see if I was choosing the correct unzipped files. Now I get two error messages:

    1) Cannot add themes / or if I try to delete them Cannot delete files

    2) Software caused connection abort: socket write error.

    I am totally lost, and blocked. Anybody can help?
