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 https://themes.svn.wordpress.org/ before uploading your theme to make sure that the slug is free.

    Thank you for the replies as well!
