Any word on my Pagelines theme is missing after update?

Question

The problem is on the WordPress theme servers, and its an intermittent problem.

 

For me it failed twice then installed on the 3rd time, using the theme search then install page, not the uploader.

You have a missing stylesheet like in the OP screenshot?

 

Well done.....

 

As i mentioned already, WE do not update your theme, wordpress does when you click that button it fetches the zip from the wordpress server and updates it. Not us.

Yes I had a missing stylesheet error message too. Just to add on, I also tried to delete the theme and reinstall a fresh zip folder manually but turned out i had a new error message instead:

 

"The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the index.php file.

Theme install failed."

I resolved it by deleting the pagelines theme folder on my server and reinstalled the older version of pagelines.
 
Is it possible if Pagelines admin post the update notification perhaps in the forum or support page, at least as an effort to minimise innocent users from updating the "wrong" one from wordpress.

What version are you downloading from wordpress?

 

1.3.9 is the latest and it has an index.php ALL themes are tested on wordpress.org before any updates are released.

Well, I guess everything didn't go as planned this time, Pagelines. Lots of folks have the same error.

I deleted the entire theme and its files from my FTP and uploaded the 1.3.9 zip file inside of Wordpress and everything is back to normal, original files and all.

Great.  That's the correct way to do it.

 

Glad that worked.

Ive tested this myself.

 

Going to contact the wordpress staff and see what the story is.

I tried it again with the new installation by deleting the theme and installing the latest version from wordpress but it still gave me the missing index.php error.

Download the zip from the themes page on wordpress.org then use the theme upload button. That works 100%

Hi guys, it's finally working. I repeatedly installed again and again till it was successful and i think it was the 4th installation for me. Guess being persistent pays off!

We'd need a bit more information.

 

How did you update?

 

Id say using whatever method you did use, not all the files were uploaded, or they were uploaded to the wrong place. Download a fresh copy of the zip from wordpress.org unzip it and upload the files to the themes/pagelines folder.

I updated by pressing update on my Wordpress Dashboard. Something I regret doing.

We have no control over the wordpress theme update or how your server is configured.
