Support » Themes and Templates » page not found and themes not installing

  • Hello,
    For some reason my homepage has been showing up as page not found. Doesn’t matter the theme. To try to fix it I uninstalled the themes but when I tried to reinstall, I get this error: Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/weaver.2.2.9.zip…

    Download failed. Not Found

    My hosting site said it was a WP issue, not a hosting issue. How can I fix this problem?

    Thank you for your help!

    Can you link (URL) to your site?

    http://www.ellenmangan.com/

    The theme that shows up is the one remaining that I couldn’t figure out how to delete….

    ps I just updated to the latest version of wp and still can’t upload themes…

    Can you login to your site? If so, try to deactivate all plugins first and then activate Twenty Twelve theme.

    I deactivated all the plugins as you suggested but got the same error message trying to install the Twenty Twelve theme..

    Here’s the message: Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/twentytwelve.1.1.zip…

    Download failed. Not Found

    I need to go to bed now but I will check back in the morning. Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Hello, sorry for the confusion and thanks for that note (moderator, above). People had been helping me so I just wanted them to know that I wouldn’t be able to respond. Hope that makes sense. Perfectly fine with me and I understand that responses are not immediate. I hope that makes sense…. Best wishes, Ellen

    Try twentytwelve again – there’ve been a few changes in the .ORG themes site which may have been causing problems. If it won’t install from your Dashboard, download it to your local computer and do a manual install – see:

    Hello and thank you. This morning I’m able to install themes again – twenty twelve and others – but still having the page not found issue on the homepage….???

    I don’t see twentytwelve active on your site…

    Sorry, I’ll do that now. I tried it and it didn’t make a difference so I just put up the theme I had been working with…..

    It’s up now. I’ll leave it up.

    fyi: on the advice of a friend I set my home page to my posts (blog) page. He thought that perhaps I had at some point set the homepage as home and then subsequently deleted it. I don’t get a page not found error when the blog page is set as the static page. Would this seem to be the likely issue? And if so, how can I restore the homepage such that I don’t get that error??? My friend may be able to answer this for me, but not certain. So any suggestions you might have a very welcome!

    Thank you for your help.
