Comment on How to Update WordPress Themes by Hector.

WordPress Theme Update TutorialHi David,

I’m trying to install v8.1, but I’m getting this error:

“Unpacking the package…

The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Invalid archive structure”

If I try to unpack/uncompress the file on my hard drive, I get this message:

“Error: central directory not found”

Stallion-responsive-8.1.zip file is 1,825 KB.

It looks small when compared to stallion-responsive-child-8.1.zip

Update:
The file I was using above is the file I downloaded using the link after purchasing.

I just downloaded from the “Download Stallion Theme” button on the homepage, and I was able to install.

On the other hand, I’m using stallion 7.1.1, I’m going ahead to install. I have not used any child theme, I wonder if there is a way to migrate from 7.1.1 without losing too much customization.

or maybe I should just start creating my child theme on 8.1, and then activate.

just to let you know… trying to install child theme, and I’m getting this error:

“Are you sure you want to do this?

Please try again.”

I try again, and again, same thing.

I’m suspecting it’s because the “stallion-responsive-child” directory does not exist, and I have to create it first?

just to let you know. I’m installing the child-theme, but I’m having issues with this message:

________________________________________
Are you sure you want to do that?

Try again?
________________________________________

I guess it has to do with the file size? In any case, I’m FTP’ing the uncompressed folder. It finished the FTP process 1448 successfully transferred files.
