Hi, I’m trying to upload a theme and am getting this … no matter what I do!!!

“Please review the following issues that occurred WordPress Theme is required WordPress Theme style.css is missing Description header”

I have a css header and a ZIP with just the theme too, I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

Could someone help? Thanks ;)

Hi! You need to unzip the file you downloaded and upload the theme inside it. Please see Solving broken theme issues.

Also, I checked to see if you had purchased a HTML template by mistake but couldn’t find any theme purchase on your account at all :)

Ahh unless you’re talking about uploading a theme for sale on the Marketplace? My mistake if you were.

No, I’m the author and am trying to upload to TF.

They’re not letting me upload though I’ve included the files the asked for.

This is my format for the css header …

Theme Name: 
Theme URI:
Description: 
Author: 
Author URI: 
Version: 
Tags:
License:
License URI:

But I think it might be that I don’t have my WP Theme ZIP done right.

thats the correct format, it should be zipped as a installable theme(if you cant install it via the WP dash its zipped wrong)

I’ve tried it in Chrome and FireFox with no luck, I’ve renamed the ZIP, I’ve re-uploaded the ZIP … and still nothing!!!

I know the files work, but I have no clue why they’re not uploading.

Those are the only errors and they won’t go away! :S

Do you have a demo up somewhere where we can look at your style.css?
