For anyone thinking about purchasing any template from this site…BEWARE! I just spent some hard earned money to only spend the last 2 hours in frustration. Can’t upload Rockwell .zip file to my wordpress provider…there is NO documentation…there is NO contact information for the website…this site smells like a scam…GOODBYE $35…you will be missed!

You can contact the author through his profile page: http://themeforest.net/user/freshface

(On the bottom right)

What error do you get if you upload the .zip file?

Ps.: ThemeForest is definitive no Scam.

Have you unzipped the archive you downloaded? Rockwell is an extremely popular theme, and it does have documentation. Just unzip and read :)

Also, you should contact support if you have any issues. But the link posted by ThemesFever should get you going :)

You have to unzip the theme first and upload only the essential theme files. Inside the zip you will find all the documentation you need.

Are you using WordPress.com or WordPress.org self-hosted? WordPress.com won’t allow you to upload custom themes. See http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

there is NO documentation…

The documentation is in the zip file you downloaded. Most likely your issue is that you are uploading the wrong file (see http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/ ).

there is NO contact information for the website…

If you go to Help > Support Center you’ll see the contact form: http://themeforest.net/support

You can contact an individual author about a theme via their profile page, like BroOf said http://themeforest.net/user/freshface

this site smells like a scam…

Seriously? This is offensive. I’d recommend asking for help when you’re having trouble rather than accusing a business of being a scam. It’s a lot more productive.

You shouldn’t assume a site a with 1.1 million members is a scam just because you cant be bothered to read instructions.

It is reassuring to see all the positive reply’s to my post…even if in a negative toward me…which I will be glad to retract as soon as I can get this figured out…yes, your replies are helping! Hopefully I can put a post up about eating crow! Thanks!
