    Hi I'm trying to install the P2 theme but all I get is:
    'The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
    Plugin install failed.'
    I've downloaded version the latest version of P2 1.4.0 but it won't install.
    Any ideas/suugestions would be most welcome.

    Thanks,

    Will

    I just tried it and it installed successfully for me. Check the theme requirements against your server and also see if you have enough memory.

    You can also try to download it from wordpress.org then FTP it to your site.

    Hi a_johnson,

    Thanks for your reply. I should have mentioned that I'm running a copy of wordpress on localhost ( which I use as a testbed ) in order to see how it looks/functions. If it works, as I hope it will, I'll be using it on a new copy of wordpress which I want to hang on a subdomain to my main site, ie I want to keep the current theme on my main site.

    I've never had problems uploading plugins on localhost before so I can't really understand why this is refusing to load.

    Hi a_johnson,

    The problem has been resolved. I can't believe that I was making the basic error of trying to upload P2 as a plugin and not as a theme.

    Thanks anyway for your time.

    Regards,

    Will
