I recently bought a wordpress theme to develop a website for my kids to post their short stories and other items for the school friends. I also purchased a domain and hosting from godaddy. I installed Wordpress, but unfortunately it installed the latest version 3.4.2. The theme I purchased is only compatible with wordpress 3.3. When I went to wordpress to download version 3.3 I keep getting directed to v3.4.2.

I am not sure how I can change the current version to 3.3 and make it compatible to my theme.

I should be grateful if someone can please guide me on how I can do this.

Many thanks

If you go to the release archive, you can download an older version:

Are you sure that the theme is not compatible with 3.4.2? Maybe author just forgot to update supported version?

I also support this.. It would be really strange that a theme made for 3.3 to not work in 3.4.. If it doesn’t work, it means that it has some really deprecated functions..

Have you tried installing it? Like others said, I would be very surprised if it doesn’t work.

Many thanks to all of you for your replies.

I have tried installing it several times and it has failed each time.

In what way is it failing? Missing stylesheet?

This is the error message I receive.

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Hi Kriskorn

Many thanks for the link. I have loaded the theme. How do I then upload the PSD and documentation zip?
