    Dear Kriesi,

    I bought your themes from Theme Forests the “Sentence Theme”.

    However, when I have follow your procedure to upload the theme in my wordpress, this warning shown up:

    “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, (Email address hidden if logged out) and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.”

    Now i seek your kind advice to provide solution on this matter. I would highly appreciate your swift reply since I cannot wait too long to upload your great themes on my wordpress.

    With best regards,



    Ok folks. Since that it takes time for Kriesi and his staffs to answer questions in this support forum, I googled “The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.”

    Eventually, I found a lot of information on how to fix this issue and it’s pretty easy. All you need is FileZilla, then click&drag your theme folder (how to get this: unzip your theme pack, unzip your theme, then you’ll get your theme folder) to wp-content>wp-themes directory. Afterwards, log in to your wordpress admin, then go to appearance>theme, there you’ll find that your theme has been installed. All you need to do next is to activate your theme, then voila!

    I wish that this info could provide enlightment to all readers in this forum.

    Nevertheless, two thumbs to Kriesi who founded the Sentence Theme. It’s a natural beauty of a theme.



    good to see you’ve figured it out already. Thanks for sharing your findings, I’m sure others will enjoy the solution as well :)




    Thanks Chris. But for wordpress newbee like me actually prefers installation without hassle. I think Kriesi or you as the moderator could figure out the source of the problem and find the solution, therefore it wont happen again to someone else who bought this incredible “Sentence” theme.


    This is actually more of a webserver issue that anything to do with wordpress or the theme.

    You need to update the php configuration to allow files larger than the default (which I believe is 5M), in WHM this is a very easy process, but you may be better to ask your admin to resolve.



    You are absolutely correct, Nik. However, you are missing my point here. What I was trying to say to Kriesi and his team was to figure out to make the Sentence Theme bundle not exceeding the php.ini uploading file size limit. Not all the purchaser of the theme has the knowledge on web, or other technicalities on basic programming language. Like me, I dont know how to enlarge the default size limit.

    It would be easier for the user of the themes purchased if kriesi could create themes within the file size limit. Wont you agree?

    But hey, I am just giving a constructive advise here for the better good of Kriesi’s creativity.




    Better they deliver the theme with all the components it requires and that make it so great than compromise the theme for the sake of varying php configuration limits surely ?

    Perhaps a note in the readme to want people of the size would be a good approach, or separate out all of the sample content and make that an optional upload ….



    Hey Andy!

    Unfortunately each users php.ini has a different size set and most of them is bigger than 32mb so we figured there shouldnt be too many problems with the theme. But a note on the installation is definitely a good idea, so thanks for the info ;)


    Oh wow, the key master finally show up. Many thanks to your attention to my advise. However, would you mind to take a look at my twitter widget issue on Sentence Theme? Once again, thank you very much, Kriesi.


    Already replied on that one, I hope its as I said in the other thread and the info shows up during the next hours ;)

    If not feel free to bump the other thread and we will take a look at it ;)
