Upload/Install a premium theme from themeforest (5 posts)

    Hi guys,
    Hopefully someone can please help me. I recently purchased a premium theme from themeforest.net called Humble. I am going through go daddy as my hosting. I have unzipped my theme and uploaded it to go daddy through my ftp client, but when I sign into my wordpress account, its not coming up as as an option for me to activate as my theme. I was told by the go daddy rep that i should have the "install theme" option on my dashboard, but that option is not there. I have been trying now for about four days, and is getting really frustrated. I am using a Mac and have uninstalled/reinstalled wordpress, but still no success. I have went over with go daddy to enusre that my domain servers and ip address are pointing in the right direction. I have even deleted my theme from the directory and uploaded it again as well. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate it.

    Yes you should have install theme option on you wordpress( at least 3.2 and 3.3 as far as i know) I uploaded a picture(its in slovak language, sorry but should be able to see from there its location) and there you have several options and one of them is installing from a zip file.

    It should work when simply unzipping nad copy your theme into wp-content/themes/new_theme_dir

    wish you luck

    As this is a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme vendors.

    I am experiencing the exact same problem. Did you find a solution?

    d1body and JulieEvans,

    Are you comfortable posting your domain names here in the forum? If so, I'd be happy to take a look at your accounts directly so I can investigate.
