    I got a premium theme from ThemeForest and it appears as if it is installing, and then I get a page that says "Are you sure you want to do this?" and the only option is to go back.

    The theme doesn't even install. This is making me angry!!!

    I tried another theme and same thing. So I went into FTP and did everything manually which took forever and then I got an error:

    Any insight?

    Did you make sure you were installing the right file? The other day I tried installing Shapeshifter from Themeforest and I was getting the same thing, took forever to ftp, and I was getting nothing but errors.

    I found that there was another folder inside the main folder and it was called www, then inside that one was the theme folder. It wasn't until I read the instructions 3 or 4 times until I figured it out.

    Install this plugin before you install the theme :)

    http://eightface.com/wordpress/flickrrss/

    This will make get_flickrRSS a defined function. As of now, the call is undefined and the execution of rest of the file is terminated.

    Your other fix would be to get into the 14th line of sidebar.php and remove the get_flickRSS function with its full codes. Make sure you dont delete anything else in the way.

    Well, I will be choosing the second option always, because, I hate Flickr picstures being rotated in my sidebar. There is no reason for it to be shown in my blogs.

    Good Luck.

    still getting the error, I don't really want to go into editing the files because I may mess something up. People have been saying that WordPress is simple, but I have been running into constant errors. I had to manually upload every plugin through FTP because I kept getting errors.

    Now themes won't work properly either. Is this new version of WP the reason?
