It’s difficult for an author to have describe every single step in the documentation since people are on different operating systems, using different software, etc so it varies. But let’s see if we can get you sorted out.
First we should check that you’ve uploaded the correct folder in the correct place. Dzinc’s first reply here explains how to find the theme folder in your original download, in your case this folder will be called “kingsize”. Make sure you’re uploading just this folder, and not the whole thing you downloaded from the site.
Where to upload it with FileZilla?. Again the exact filepath varies depending on your host but once you browse to wherever you have WordPress installed you should be uploading themes to wp-content/themes/. Unzip the kingsize folder on your computer before uploading it here, so it’s just a normal folder.
Once that is uploaded we can worry about permissions. The CHMOD instructions you quoted earlier list each folder you’ll want to edit (wp-content/uploads, etc, you can browse to all of these in FileZilla just as you browsed to the themes directory), all you need to do in FileZilla is right-click the folder in question and choose “file permissions” and fill in the correct numbers.
Sidenote: Dzinc’s file permissions screenshot was just supposed to show you how to access the permissions, the coldfusion folder is just a random folder used for demonstration so don’t worry about that.
If you’re still stuck, let us know the exact place you first get confused and we’ll go from there. Drop me a message through my profile page if you want, I can give you a hand over Skype if that might help.
kristopherfisheraudio saidYou’re probably right. So you guys are both in the Scotland? Awesome!
The sun is shining, it’s a nice day in Glasgow!
Its sunny here down the road from Glasgow too, but sadly I am inside feeling sorry for myself haha!Btw, you do realize this sunshine we are getting right now is the Scottish Summer
I lived in Cumbernauld most of last year and basically never saw sunshine once, this is all lies!
It’s an addiction! I have it to. You keep starting and playing with new things constantly. Then when something new works ( either technically or another idea ) you start to imagine ALLLL the posibilities you can do with that!! “Wow this little things work, now i could do this and that!”. Then you start with one of the ideas and while working on that you think of another thing that would be SO cool to have or use or build. Then the whole focuse shifts to creating that new feature and BAM it works! “OH my goddd i can rule the worldd with this!”. Then after days, weeks, months even years you could almost do anything you like – BUT wait: You never actually finished a single thing into a working item or product!!
And this is how I’ve managed to be a member of TF for 3 years without actually finishing a theme
If you’ve narrowed it down as I suggested above and the problem is definitely with the theme, I’m sure the theme author will be happy to help fix the problem. The theme page links to their support forum so that’s probably the best place to let the author know.
First thing I’d do is turn all your plugins off, and try it again. If that works, it’s a plugin that’s incompatible with the latest version and you can try them one by one to narrow down the culprit.
If the problem persists with no plugins, change your theme to a default one and try again (keeping plugins disabled too). If this fixes it, the problem is the theme itself and you’ll need to contact the author.
If neither of these help then you’re onto the advanced school of WordPress troubleshooting
You don’t need to be a PHP genius to work with WordPress, but a decent understanding helps a lot. Otherwise you get into situations where you’re not sure if something you’re trying to do is basic PHP, or WordPress API-specific, and it gets unnecessarily confusing trying to learn both at once.
I would start with the typography and spacing. Everything is just far too cramped. Good luck!
First thing I noticed is the typography. Line-height, spacing, centered text in inappropriate places, all looks a bit weird to me.
Next I noticed that inner pages have a boxed layout (with the white background centered in the screen) while the homepage white background stretches full-width. Inconsistency tends to be bad.
Spacing/margins – for example on those boxed inner pages, the content is far too close to the edges of the white container.
Also you have an example form on this page http://easingthemes.com/features/typography/ but it appears to be completely unstyled?
Just a few things, only have time for a quick look atm sorry! Hope some of it helps
