Hello!!

quite new here. Recently installed WordPress on my site and purchased Mondern Business 3 wp.

I have followed the instructions precisely (imported the mb3_dark folder in the themes folder) and activated it. Followed the instructions etc. After everything is done, I have a duplicate blog and home page and all the other pages that are seen on the demo. I try to click these pages and I get a 404 error. page not found. I see all the HTML ’s in the zip folder, but where do I put them.

Extremely frustrated. Wish the instructions were accurate.

Someone please help me set up my site!!! I am familiar with the html,css etc, but for some reason nothing wants to work.!!!!

Thanks!

Yes it is the word press version. all the PHP versions are imported into the ftp as well. However, none of the pages work. The only page operational is the home page.

do you have a live link to the site? and have you created the pages from your wordpress admin panel http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages

I have no clue. :/ I just re-uploaded the theme and activated. I have not followed the instructions – which seem to screw things up even further.

afocusphotography.com is the site. as you can see, it does not look anything like the demo

from my guess you haven’t created any pages or post ect. I suggest trying to follow the authors instructions one more time and it that fails try sending them a message through there profile page

Installing themes may sounbd extremely easy but it can easily go wrong the first time. The best you can do is be patient and make sure you follow the instructions carefully.

Best would be to go to wordpress.com and try their instructions as well.

Most of the errors are usually due to the user doing something wrong. That is a fact and a good thing to remember. These themes would not be approved for sale if they had such fundamental errors.

The best point of call is with the author first – he did eventually contact me and even though I was eating dinner in a restaurant for my wedding anniversary I helped him out – was a matter of just following the directions I provide – all is good now.
