    Hi, I purchased CleanCut from Themeforest and am having a hard time figuring out how to get my local host wordpress to recognize it. I downloaded CleanCut to wp-content/themes on my C drive. In wordpress, I went to Appearance > Themes > Install Themes – selected the CleanCut .zip file but wordpress says “are you sure you want to do this?” then “please try again”

    So, I unzipped all the files so it’s same as the default theme ( twentyten ) but I can’t figure out how to get my wordpress to realize it’s there.

    any ideas? Thanks for your help.



    please unzip the package you got from themeforest.net ONE time. You should get a folder which contains PSDs, Docs and another zip file (which is called cleancut.zip. This zip file is the right file. Go to your wordpress admin panel and navigate to Appearance > Themes. Then select the cleancut.zip file, upload & install it. You can also unpack this zip file and upload the resulting folder via ftp to wp-content/themes.

    Also have a look at this tutorial video @themeforest.net: http://wiki.envato.com/buying/support-buying/solving-broken-theme-issues/


    I tried that but I’m not getting the cleancut.zip file after I unzip the one time, I’m getting html.zip, psd.zip, and a domentation_html file folder that contains an assets file folder(with more file folders in it), index, and a .ds_store file.That’s it


    Maybe you bought the hrml version instead of the wp version? There’re two versions – the wordpress version: http://themeforest.net/item/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -theme/109677 and the html version: http://themeforest.net/item/ (Purchase code hidden if logged out) -and-portfolio-template/99235 . If you’d like to use CleanCut with WordPress you need to buy/use the first version. The second version contains the standalone html files only (without wordpress/cms/php, etc. code). Please contact the themeforest/envato support team: http://themeforest.net/support and ask them for an item exchange.


    whoops .. =) // thanks


    Glad that I could help you :)
