Hi to all. I just purchased the Platform Pro Dev framework and cannot get it to load through the "Upload Theme" feature in Wordpress. I have a feeling it is due to my current configuration. I am working on the site via XAMPP on a thumb drive and will eventually transfer it to the domain on bluehost.

So in Wordpress, after I select the platformpro zip file it seems to hang on the screen that says: "Installing Theme from uploaded file:platformpro_dev.zip"....Unpacking the package.... I can't get past this screen. Anyone have any ideas? Can I just extract the folders from the platformpro zip file and place theme in the Wordpress themes folder manually?

Lookin for some nubee lovin here. Thanks.

For sure. You can definitely unzip and ftp the files manually. You shouldn't have any problems doing it that way.

I wasn't sure if the WordPress zip install method would place files in several directories. I'll do the manual folder install. Thanks for your help.
