Hi, i´ve purchased the Theme X for my WP today.

I´ve downloaded the Theme and try to install it via upload.

When the installation is finished and shows 100% there is a blank page with the Message “ARE YOU SURE, YOU WANt TO DO THAT” “PLEASE TRY IT AGAIN”

When i press “PLEASE TRY IT AGAIN” the site goes back to the Upload Page – the Theme isn´t installed.

This message is displayed in german – cause´ i´m an austrian user.

Please help me!

sounds like the files you’re uploading are too large, make sure you’re trying to install ONLY the WordPress files not the full download package (you can download the WordPress files separately via the downloads page)

Yeah thats most likely too large for your host.

To get the installable file only its easiest to go to http://themeforest.net/downloads and click on the download button, a drop down will appear and it will say “installable WordPress files only” (or something similar) click that.

You can try to install those files directly from WordPress it should work.

Thank-you for chiming in to help guys!

Markus – it definitely sounds like you are trying to upload the all files option as the theme itself is just a few MB. We have a video that walks through everything from the download on ThemeForest to installation, and you can find this in our member area here. You must be logged in to view, so if you haven’t registered yet, you can do that here.

We’ll look forward to seeing you in the member forums should you need anything further. Cheers!
