Wordpress Theme Won't Install - Already checked other Questions...


I tried to install a Wordpress theme (after getting everything up and running) and I am getting the error:

Are you sure you want to do this?

Please try again.

Now I have looked all over here for the answer but I am importing the correct .zip file so I am not sure what to do.

It’s called the ‘Enfold’ theme.

I’m having the same issue and I’ve followed the steps to re-upload the wp-config.php file and the theme still didn’t work. I know it works because I installed it on another instance of WP I have on another server. I don’t know what else to do.

Current version of WP: 4.7.2 No plugins installed - and clean install of Wordpress

@jtittle So, I did exactly that and still got the nonce. Thought to myself it must be the theme… I have installed this theme on other sites before (each time you buy a new license) so it’s strange this error would happen.

I did however manually install the theme and it worked (yay, finally!). Should I move forward with development or still try to fix why it won’t upload? Which do you think is the right choice?

Thanks for all your help by the way!

@jtittle I tried everything you had suggested (there were no plugins activated so I deleted them anyway), still didn’t upload.

Was running the latest version of Wordpress but did a re-install and still failed to upload :/

What else could it be?
