    Keep getting Failure Notice when trying to upload theme, by dbsitenew


    Not sure what is happening but I think it is a memory issue when uploading a theme zip folder. Note: the zipped theme folder has a file size of 33.2MB.

    1. I was about half way through creating a website when I added in an image, saved the php webpage, and tried to upload the full theme folder only to get a failure notice…are you sure you want to do this

    2. When I take the image back out the theme then it uploads fine, so then I tried converting the image in tinypng, added it back in and this time the theme uploaded fine.

    3. So, I’m presuming this could be:
    A. Image corruption problem – so I reset Photoshop preferences,
    created a new image to upload to the web page, rezipped the theme folder and tried uploading it again – and still got the failure notice.
    Further to this when I tried using a small image file direct from the web the theme again uploaded fine with no failure notice – but when I tried a large web image file I got the failure notice.

    B. A memory problem, which I presume is the issue ?

    4. Thinking it was indeed a memory problem I cleared out my online wordpress themes file – there was six themes there (five my own, one default) and tried uploading the new theme folder after again adding an image but still I am getting the failure notice.

    Would increasing my WordPress memory limit help in this case ? I am a bit nervous going at the core wp files so would prefer to avoid but if it’s the only solution ?

    If this is a memory issue, is it about the upload memory capacity, not the memory size of my online WordPress themes folder ?

    Or is it something else that’s happening here.

    Can anyone help me on this, any ideas?

    PS. I can email via wetransfer the zip file if anyone needs to check anything in it.
