    Hello: I'm new to WordPress. I purchased the membership at Elegant Themes with the hope of accessing some of those templates to build websites for two not-for-profits that I am associated with. I have no knowledge of CSS or HTML or whatever the programming language is. But I am having serious trouble with uploading themes. This is the message I get each time:
    Can't unpack zip-file: PCLZIP_ERR_MISSING_FILE (-4) : Missing archive file ''

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Marvin

    You should contact Elegant Themes for support since you gave them money for the theme, but this type of error is usually caused by not uploading the correct .zip file - check inside the file you downloaded and see if there is a theme specific zip in there.

  5. Please don't use all-caps, it comes across like yelling.

    Can you manually install that theme via FTP? Normally errors like that are a file/directory permission issue on your web server.
