Karma theme will not install on WordPress 3.31. I purchased the theme today and made four attempts to upload the zipped theme file to the site. Each time it produces a WordPress failure notice with the words “Are you sure you want to to this? Try again.” I get the same result each time. I used two different browsers just to be sure the problem wasn’t there.
I have uploaded many WP themes in the past, and other themes do install correctly on this site, www.teasilver.com. How can I successfully load the Karma theme?
Perhaps you have some server-side limitations regarding upload file size. Try to upload via FTP . Also make sure you have necessary permissions set.

Buyers often make this mistake.

Thank you for this advice, which worked. Now I know that ThemeForest does this a little differently than many other template vendors, whose product uploads directly from the zip file. One suggestion for the folks at ThemeForest if they’re monitoring forums … if buyers do make this mistake often, then perhaps more clarity at the point of purchase would be helpful?
Anyway, thanks for the help!
Hi there I’m having the same trouble installing the Karma theme BUT I have tried the above and it is still not working. I FTP ’d the Karma-HTML package but nothing shows up in my themes, there seems to be heaps of HTML files but not so much PHP stuff (as per my previous Wordpress themes). What am I doing wrong here??
The best practice in case of issues with a purchase is to:
- read the included documentation
- see the link in previous post in this thread (main issue)
- read user comments on item page
and last but not least:
- contact the author of the theme.
