    I am having issues on my mac, however I will say I am not at all familiar with FTP. I dragged the unzipped theme folder from my computer to the ‘theme’ folder under wp-content on the server. Then when in wordpress I go to appearance and themes, I get a blank white preview screen that just says shopperpress. The specific them is not listed (ie alive, classic, square), it just says shopperpress with no ability to use it. Anyone?

    Thomas, you have to upload the whole folder called Shopperpress to the WP themes directory and not just an individual theme/flavor of Shopperpress.

    Remove what you previously uploaded.

    Another common problem is people uploading the folder ShopperPress within another folder called Shopperpress, this happens because of the way they unpack the original zip file etc, so be careful of that.
