Someone recently purchased my theme and is saying that it’s not compatible with their Mac. Seeing as how I don’t own a Mac, nor do I know anything about them (sadly), I just assumed it was a zip file and could be extracted and used regardless of the system. Is this correct?

Yes… they can open up ZIP files on a Mac… open with Archive Utility if they’re using 10.5 or above…

Your zip may be corrupt or the default extraction app may have an issue with it (I found Mac’s default app doesn’t handle errors well). Email me via my profile page which theme is the problem and I’ll check your theme zips.

I noticed with Mac OS 10 .6+, if you zip a bunch of individual files and then unzip the file, they are all added to a folder (before they would remain individual files). This causes errors when uploading a WordPress theme zip file that was created on Mac OS 10 .6+.

Anyone know a workaround for this?
