I am trying to upload a theme to a new site, however, each of the downloads that I made from WPMU DEV to my computer each have .html attached to the file. Taking it away doesn’t seem to help. (I did right click and save as…:wink:

    Hi @elevateher!

    Hope you’re doing well today! :slight_smile:

    I’m not sure I understand what you mean here. Have you successfully downloaded the .zip file? When you click the Download link or through right-click > Save as, it should download/save the .zip file.

    Another way of installing our themes/plugins is through using our WPMU Dev dashboard plugin.


    Looking forward to your response! :slight_smile:

    Thanks Aicee,

    The problem is actually in the downloading. When I right click to save it as a .zip it adds a .html to the end so the file saved on my computer is then, …..zip.html which does work. I tried simply deleting the .html from the file name, however, that didn’t work either.

    I will try the dashboard plugin.

    Hi there, Lori!

    I’m unable to replicate the issue that you’re having when you right click and save it.

    Have you also try just left-clicking the download link?

    Yes, please try the dashboard plugin. It’ll be really useful to you, it also lets you easily manage wpmu dev plugins/themes updates. :slight_smile:

    If you have any further questions, just let us know. Have a great day!
