I purchased the avada theme as it said you needed wordpress 3.1 or higher. My host set up the latest version of wordpress and they no longer allow you to upload your own themes? Should themeforest not have been aware of this. Wonder how to get a refund?

Yup, most popular theme does not support latest WordPress version. True story.

Nope, it said it ready for WP 3.6 too – check the sidebar info of the item [link removed]

@clifforderling , make sure you are not in wordpress.com – all WP themes here only works with wordpress.org (self-hosted installation) – also you can ask the author directly via the item comment about this problem.

Good luck! :)

“Does not support uploading your own theme” definitely Wordpress.org

Avada supports the latest version of WP, and you can still upload themes.

As another user stated, All themes sold here on Themeforest require you to have your own domain, and Wordpress installed on it.

But I can assure you Avada works with WP 3.6.1.
