Hi there,

I am trying to upload an Admin Template. I choose the category Site Templates. In the section “Files” there is a field named “Optional WordPress Theme”. I leave it blank and then the form returns an error:

Please review the following issues that occurred Theme Preview is required Theme Preview The supplied file does not appear to be a zip. Please compress your files into a .zip file.

When it put there a zip file with the preview of my template is returns an error again:

Please review the following issues that occurred Theme Preview is required Optional WordPress Theme ZIP must contain index.php within my-file Optional WordPress Theme ZIP must contain style.css within my-file Theme Preview The supplied file does not appear to be a zip. Please compress your files into a .zip file.

Many Thanks

Stoyan

I’ve not uploaded in a while but that sounds a bit strange. I’d imagine since it’s optional you could just leave it blank.

What you should have ready to upload is:

1 x Thumbnail Image 1 x zip file containig the preview and screenshot images 1 x zip file of the main itheme files e.g. what gets downloaded on purchase

i think thats it – hopefully not stating the obvious…

This is what I did and got an error. Strange because I have uploaded files before and had no problems at all.

This is mistake for all newbie , do not put zip with demo in preview section only screenshots is needed here , because live demo is hosted in your server not in themeforest this produce nginx error
