Support » Everything else WordPress » Trying to upload theme to the directory

  • I’m trying to upload a theme in the themes directory but I’m having some trouble.

    The first .zip had a Version: 1.0 , so I got a notice saying that I have to upload a version higher than 1.0.

    When I changed the version to 1.0.0 as I saw most people have for initial releases (as I did with my plugin as well ) thinking that it will pass I received an ‘Whitespace theme already exists please change your themes name’ as a notice.

    I’m searching through the themes directory though not being able to find another Whitespace ( I did that even before naming my theme that’s why I went with that name in the first place 😀 ).

    Any ideas?

    Best regards,

  • maybe you can rename your themes folder (your new themes). just like >> currectthemes, and rename it to curretthemes2 or somethink else

    IIRC, once a theme is uploaded, the slug is “used up”, even if the theme is never accepted into the directory.

    Got it solved with the awesome #themereview guys.

    There was actually another theme with the same slug even though I couldn’t find anything on the theme directory ( probably the search doesn’t include slugs ? ).

    So for future reference if anybody else is having the same issues refer to before uploading your theme to make sure that the slug is free.

    Thank you for the replies as well!
