    Hello All,

    I'm new to using WordPress in the .org context. Today, I've been trying to install some of the themes that come with the standard WP installation, but I keep getting a "failure" message. I've tried to install 3-4 different themes, and keep getting the same fail message.

    Your help much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Yes, because wordpress.org/extend/themes/theme_name is being redirected to wordpress.org/plugins/theme_name. It should be redirected to wordpress.org/themes/theme_name instead.

    wordpress.org devs, please look at this issue.

    Hello Prasanna,

    Thank you for your help. I don't really understand your answer. Is there something I should adjust?

    I'm having the same issue. Can't install any themes on my first WP site - just get the message:
    Download failed. Not Found.

    Sincere apologies to all! Thought it was same issue - didn't mean to be impolite!
    Have posted new thread.
    Sorry again,

  7. The removal of the /extend piece of the system has caused some little errors to spring up all over the site. We would appreciate your patience while we work these issues out. Thanks!
