http error downloading themes (2 posts)

    I'm having trouble downloading any themes from w.org to either of my 2 wp sites. I'm working from admin under themes-manage themes. The text: "You only have one theme enabled for this site right now" provides two links-one, an option to "enable" themes(none there to enable), the other to "install", providing a link to a search box from which to download themes. I go there. I type in a theme from the .org site, using the search criteria of both"author" and "term". I promptly receive the message, "An Unexpected HTTP Error occurred during the API request. Try again." I do, nada. I DO have a site up, but I would like to practice with different themes and am unsure how to progress. Can anyone knowledgeable provide any clear direction for me, please?

    This is usually caused by an issue with your hosts' server configuration. They may be blocking access from your dashboard to the Themes site. Try installing themes manually instead.
