GoDaddy and WordPress Themes
I have just purchased the delux hosting package with GoDaddy and installed WordPress at the root of the domain I am hosting there.
I did the ‘automatic install’ (which was probably a mistake…)
All was fine until I tried to upload a new theme. I tried to upload via the GoDaddy files panel (WordPress>Content>Themes) and via ftp. But each time I am getting errors with the thems.
I tried uploading several different themes, all of which work fine on my other hosting accounts by the way.
But each theme I have uploaded is showing no images (no header image, no icons, etc). And when I check out the theme files in my admin panel all I find is a mass of black squiggles. Same with the files panel at GoDaddy. Each image file is showing either black squiggles or a long list of code which I cannot decipher.
However, when I hover over the image icons in the hosting control panel for a theme, the images show up.
I am new to GoDaddy hosting (and beginning to wish I hadn’t bothered…).
Could anyone tell me what I am dong wrong?
(GoDaddy contact says this is ‘A WordPress Issue’ not their’s…)
