“Light” Plugin Not Found
First: this is the coolest theme (layout tool) I’ve come across in a long time. It is a huge time saver for those of us who dabble a lot but are not developers and don’t live and breathe HTML. Nice job.
THE ISSUES: Upon installation one of the recommended plugin’s to install is “Light”. Of the four recommended plugins this is the only one that is listed as “Pre-Packaged” and not listed as available in the WP plugin repository.
The other three plugins install just find but when I try to install this plugin it get the following error message:
“Download install package from [MY HOSTING DIRECTORY PATH TO MY SITE/wp-content/themes/lightfast-child/inc/light.zip.
Download failed. A valid URL was not provided.”
I checked my installed lightfast-child subdirectory but no directory named “inc” and no file named “light.zip”
I checked all of the unzipped files on my computer from the Lightfast theme download file from your site. Same results: no “inc” directory and no “light.zip” file.
I continue to get the recommendation to install the plugin when in my site’s plugin page.
Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
Thanks for the good feedback. Glad to hear you’re finding it useful.
I believe I’ve tracked down the problem regarding the light.zip plugin.
The problem resides in (the parent theme) functions.php around line#1303:
'source' => get_stylesheet_directory() . '/inc/light.zip',
'source' => get_template_directory() . '/inc/light.zip',
It’s looking for the plugin zip file in the child theme/inc folder instead of the parent theme /inc folder.
I’ll push up a fix for this issue right away.
Upon updating, you should be able to reinstall the plugin from Appearance → Install Plugins.
I just downloaded Lightfast again and uploaded the parent theme directory. The Light plugin installed correctly without a hitch. Problem solved.
