Are you sure error is your hosting and the fact it disconnects also sounds like a hosting issue. It’s a big theme so even on our VPN takes a little time.

I suggest asking your host- who is it?

Yes it is a requirement for ALL files types.

JS/CSS commenting is helpful but basic guidelines on how/what to edit esp. key things like logo, editing images, adjusting CSS etc.

Without seeing the file in question it is hard to give detail.

There’s a template here https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202500894-Helpful-Resources-for-Authors

When you download the “Installable WP file only” you are choosing to “save” it not “open” it right? I just did it with this theme and it comes out as a zip.

Alternatively if you have this folder just zip it up again and then install it.

If you choose to download “All files and documentation” then in here is: Documentation, enfold.zip, images, Licensing, pdsfiles.zip

You need the enfold.zip file to upload as it is or UNZIP it and you can use FTP

Best practice design esp on the fundamentals like typography, alignment, spacing etc. (without seeing a design it is impossible to advise on this).

Take a look at other files for a guide on quality and standards

If it is WordPress then it needs to meet these https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202822450-WordPress-Theme-Submission-Requirements

The WORST thing you can possible do is rush or see submitting files here as a quick fix payment. Success here takes time and commitment.

You are not using a WordPress.com site correct?

In your downloads page here click the download button and choose “Installable WordPress file Only” – then use this ZIP via the WP dashboard

In fairness (while there has been a slight delay recently) the number of submissions on here compared to almost all other marketplaces (GR aside maybe) have always been vastly greater and today there are more and more new authors trying to join also increasing it further

Whatever authors or envato do (the Installable WordPress Files Only addition was a v good idea) – you cannot teach people to follow instructions, read documentation etc.

People will always get excited and rush in which means sometimes running into issues.
