Support » Fixing WordPress » "Cheatin' uh ?" when you want to change the theme

  • Hi,

    Since 3.4.2 release, when I want to change a theme to any another theme elsen (even Tweenty Ten), I get the message “Cheatin’ uh?”.

    Any ideas ?

    Thx

    Try:
    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    I’ve tried both, and it’s the same message when I try to change theme…

    How did you reset the plugins folder? Using Phpmyadmin? If not, try that.

    I reset the plugins folder by replacing it by the plugins folder coming with the install package. I’ve made a simple move unix command. And I get the same message.

    And I’ve tried too to replacing the themes folder by the one which comes in the install package, and I get (again and again) the message “Cheatin’ uh?”.

    Any other ideas ?

    Site url?

    It’s a multisite WordPress, here’s one (but there’s the same problem with all other sites) :

    Have you tried setting up a test single-site install on this server?

    No, but it would take time. A test with the same plugins and themes ? Is it really necessary ?

    It would help to confirm whether this is a Multisite specific issue or if it’s being caused by a server configuration problem.

    OK I try ASAP and keep you in touch

    I am having the same issue with twentyten on a single site install…

    Interesting… although very frustrating for you, I’m sure. This means that it’s more likely to be a server issue. I’ll ask around and see if any of the other forum volunteers have come across this situation before. In the meantime, did you create this new site using a fresh download of WordPress?

    Another thought: Have you tried emptying your browser cache and deleting your cookies?

    I know this isn’t a good solution, but I rolled back my installation to a previous version of WP and the error message disappeared.
