Sure You Want to Do This? (18 posts)

    Trying to upload purchased themes and get error message "Sure you want to do this?" Is this an indication the file(s) are corrupt, or WP is not wanting to upload because of another reason?

    Do not understand why this happens. Newbie at this.

    Thanks for your assistance!

    Have you asked the theme's developer about this?

    Waiting on a response from one but seems to do this with any theme upload regardless of author/developer

    Can you replicate the problem using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    2014 already uploaded. Uninstalled, restarted, and uploaded fine with all other themes deactivated

    Can we see the site using the default Twenty Fourteen theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Yes, pulled it up in a different browser and it can be seen, all be it not all there.

    Tried to upload the themes again while site is in Twenty Fourteen and all plugins deactivated and receive same error message.

    Sorry but I don't have access to a psychic browser atm, so I have no idea where your site is!

    Did not understand the question. Remember, newbie here.

    Don't paste content from Microsoft Word into WordPress as the pasted text will also contain Word's own formatting. Sooner or later, this formatting will stop your pages from being displayed correctly (if at all) in Internet Explorer. If you cannot possibly manage without Word, paste your text into NotePad (or another text editor) first, then copy from NotePad into WordPress. Or use a weblog client.

    You will nowe need to edit all Posts and Pages where you have pasted content in from Word and remove all of the rubbish it has added to your content.

    Thanks for looking through. Guess this is what is prohibiting upload of themes?

    I'm not sure but the underlying source of your pages is a complete mess, so that has to be removed to rule it out.

    Took all text and erased. Re-pasted into site using plain text tool within WP. Did so for all pages.

    Tried to upload and no success.

    Underlying mess you spoke of; should I be erasing all media as well?

    Created a brand new install of WP on another domain I have. Tried to upload the themes and received the same error message
