hi,

i’ve recently purchased lightfast theme and i’m having trouble installing it

i’m unable to add through appearance > themes > add new due to file size limits, and if i upload the zip files (or even folders) as per the theme documentation into wp-content/themes, it still does not appear

this is also happening for the child theme also

hoping it’s something incredibly simple i’m overlooking here…

cheers,

You may want to try extracting lightfast.zip and lightfast-child.zip. This will give you two folders with the same name, respectively.

Next, upload the two folders to the wp-content/themes directory via FTP.

Your web host should have provided you with FTP information or at least some some sort of file manager.

Another option is to contact your web host and have them increase the PHP default ‘upload_max_filesize’ setting.

hi casey,

as mentioned above, uploading the zip files and / or the theme folders from the zips to wp-content/themes directory via FTP has no affect

this is happening across multiple sites i manage from the version of lightfast currently available to download

as my hosting looks after multiple sites, i don’t really want to alter the upload_max_filesize setting

any suggestions?

cheers,
