I just subscribed and download my file. However, when trying to follow the installation instructions, I run into a problem. My file came unzipped and the upload only accepts zipped files. Any suggestions on how to install?

Hi, @lizzybelle,

You can Add Plugin through your WordPress admin – just search for Microthemer Lite.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/microthemer/

Once installed use your purchase email to unlock the full program.

Hey,

Sorry to hear you’ve had trouble setting up. And for the delay in replying, I think out time zones might be a little out of sync.

It sounds like your computer may have automatically unzipped the microthemer.zip file. You have a couple of options:

1. Re-zip the folder and then upload the zip file via (WordPress admin area) > Plugins > Add New > Upload. Here is some info on how to zip folders:

MAC: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-zip-and-unzip-files-and-folders-on-a-mac-2260188
Windows: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4028088/windows-zip-and-unzip-files

2. Use an FTP program like Filezilla (for Windows/Mac) to upload the unzipped folder to the following directory on your site:

/wp-content/plugins/

The the new directory would be:

/wp-content/plugins/microthemer/

Actually, there’s a 3rd option that might be even more convenient. From the WordPress admin area, go to Plugins > Add New. The search for Microthemer Lite. Install it, then unlock the full plugin using the credentials shown in My Downloads.

I hope that helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thanks,
Sebastian

Ha! Didn’t see your reply there @abland, it took me a little longer to think of the best solution you started with 🙂
