Andrew, Thank you for responding to my email and sending me this link. To repeat, here is the problem I sent initially: Installing Theme from uploaded file: stationpro.zip Unpacking the package. Installing the theme. Theme Installed successfully. Warning: file(/home/content/s/y/l/sylvaticus/html/wp-content/themes/stationpro/style.css) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/s/y/l/sylvaticus/html/wp-includes/theme.php on line 180 Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/content/s/y/l/sylvaticus/html/wp-includes/theme.phpon line 180 I tried redoing it a few times, each time getting the same message. Here was your response via email: This is common error. If you followed the instructions in the readme.txt file its probably 1 of 2 things either: The WP uploader sometimes installs the files incorrectly, into a second subfolder. Check out the files on your server to make sure its like the following: 'wp-content' > 'themes' > 'stationpro' > index.php, page.php, etc... Incomplete FTP upload, in this case reupload and try again #1 is the winner, I have a /stationpro/StationPro/ structure now. It seems to work, but I'd rather correct it. Should I move /StationPro up one level and then delete the /stationpro folder, or delete both and try just copying the unzipped folder on my computer? I should warn you, I'm a total and complete novice here. I understand some things, but not nearly as much as I should. I'm always amazed when I successfully connect using FTP! :-) Thanks! Keith

do we get notified when someone posts to our questions, or do we just keep checking periodically?

Yes, you should. StationPro is the actual theme and the only file you should need.

People working on Windows are getting this issue, and we're using a different method of compressing files in the future (which we hope prevent this issue! )

do we get notified when someone posts to our questions, or do we just keep checking periodically?

We will be adding a plugin to enable notifications. good idea:)

Actually, I'm running Snow Leopard, and my hosted site is on Linux I believe. The error I pasted came from within WordPress itself. I went to the site admin section and clicked the button to upload the zip file. I navigated through the WordPress dialog box to the zip file I downloaded when I purchased the theme. Again, I'm running Snow Leopard and I use Safari. I realized that I had uploaded the original zip, and knew that was wrong, so then I went back and uploaded the zip file that was in the unzipped Theme folder, but I got the same error both times. The only difference was the second time, it created that directory structure I mentioned in my initial post. I will next try using CyberDuck to FTP the StationPro theme to the Theme folder on the hosted server. Keith (So glad I'm not the only one! :-) --K)

I hope it's OK that I just sent a screenshot from Finder of the directory structure, from the zip file I downloaded from here, to the director structure created by unzipping it. Keith
