Hi all, I’ve created a new theme I would like to upload. I’ve passed the test, but when i upload my file, and set the main file, it says “you need to upload a zip file” although I did.

I’m using winRAR to compress my zip files, thanks.

Are you positive that the extension of your file is ”.zip” and not something like ”.rar”?

Could it be that I’m entering my copyright info wrong?

if you look at the preview box under it it states – zip file containing png or jpeg images – you are attempting to upload a single png file – you should read the upload notes again where it states that you should have in a zipped file several images named like this 1_Home.jpg, 2_Contact.jpg etc

This is so that when someone looks at your theme and they click screenshots they can see a jpeg image of each page.

The first image ( ie the 1_whatever.jpg) will be the one used for the preview image or the large thumbnail when hovering over the small thumb.

Hope that makes sense and eases your frustration.
