I’m trying to update my theme, but i can’t. I upload the main file and also the ZIP containing an installable WordPress Theme, but when i click on update there is an error:

“Optional WordPress Theme style.css is missing Theme Name header”

i checked and in the style.css there is the theme name! What i have to check? :( i really need to update the theme.

many thanks

Hey,

Try deleting the old theme first, then uploading the new theme.

That should work.

Hey Banhawi,

If you can PM me ( http://themeforest.net/user/Jason ) a link to the zip file I’ll test it out with the devs for you to see if we can get to the bottom of your issue.
