Anyone else find it impossible to upload the WordPress theme only zip? I always get this error, and I’m uploading the install-able theme zip.

“Optional WordPress Theme Your ZIP must contain a single folder at the top level, which will correspond directly with your users’ /theme/YOUR_THEME_NAME/ folder. No folder was found at the top level, only files.”

I’ve posted a reply in the above linked thread explaining what I believe the problem is.

TL;DR: the error message is wrong. It’s being fixed tomorrow. Just zip the contents of the ”/theme/” folder instead of the ”/theme/” folder itself and it should upload ok

WordPress Theme Your ZIP must contain a single folder at the top level, which will correspond directly with your users’ /YOUR_THEME_NAME/ folder. Top level directories found: css, fancybox, images, includes, js

Tried all kind of stuff, didn’t work :(

I just figured out this was optional so I uploaded to reviewer without that ZIP.
