me too, same problem, for “are you sure you want to do this?” any way to upload this?

If you’re getting this message, just unzip your theme and manually upload the theme folder to your site with an FTP program here:

/wp-content/themes/

So you’ll have a result:

/wp-content/themes/your-new-theme/

Is there even the slightest little tiny possibility that you have many themes currently on your computer, and maybe not 100% of them were downloaded legally? Assuming that’s not the case, you did purchase it, right? So have you tried to re-download the file from ThemeForest and confirm the actual package downloaded from ThemeForest contains this trojan? Or are you just going off the old files that were sitting on your computer only?

What’s to stop you from accepting money from someone and giving them access to your account?

Hey Steve, don’t be confused and disappointed. Unzip the package you downloaded from ThemeForest and find the theme inside called complexity.zip along with all your documentation, including this awesome video that will walk you through the whole installation process.

Hey Paul,

Ya it looks like a few others are saying this also, but the point of this whole responsive design kick is not necessarily to go all the way back to the fluid designs of 10 years ago. It’s more of a hybrid. When your user view the site on the computer, we want it to look like it always has, but when going smaller we want it to also work.

I have seen some people taking the approach of snapping the layout to different dimensions with media queries, but I personally think it’s a little bit better approach to use percentages and allow it scale naturally depending on the device, as not all tablets or mobile devices are going to have the exact same widths.

I think you got this down already obviously, but it all is fairly simple when you look at it like this. So for example if before you were making sites with a container you were giving say a 960px width. Now, you want to not give your container a width but instead give it a “max-width” of 960px and make sure all of the inner layout elements are done with percentages.

So before maybe you had a site:

#container {
    width: 960px;
}
#content {
    width: 660px;
}
#sidebar {
    width: 300px;
}

Now it would be more like this:

#container {
    max-width: 960px;
}
#content {
    width: 68.75%;
}
#sidebar {
    width: 31.25%;
}

So now when a user is on a computer (assuming their browser window is larger than 960px) it will always appear as the classic 960px wide website.

||+520046|Comodoro said-|| It’s true. Internationalization is right there, but not fully implemented by all authors.

What do you mean not implemented by authors? If a theme is localization-ready and provides you with a default PO file (which almost all here are and do), the next step would be to then translate it into your unique language and put your unique language code into your wp-config.php file, right?

So I’m not quite sure what you’re getting at is all. Are you expecting the theme author to have a several PO files come with the theme to have the theme already translated into different languages or something? What else can an author do for while still keeping with the system that WordPress has implemented?

I’m not trying to steal your thunder here or anything, but almost every theme on ThemeForest comes localization-ready. Localization is the process by which WordPress has come up with translating its software. This system spreads through the core of WordPress and onto all plugins and themes. I understand it can be a little confusing at first, but once you take the time to learn how localization works (i.e. the translation system WordPress has built for it’s own software), you’ll know how to translate just about any decent theme on ThemeForest posted in the last year or two.
