Im having lots of trouble making my site look good. And I think its because I have not used the tutorials on this site.
If I wanted to reinstall the theme will I lose all my content?
And how do I reinstall it?
Thank you. If there is another thread here please point me to it and I will gladly read it and try myself.

I won’t say you’ll need to start completely over or anything since this theme is “Plug and Play” and allows you to add whatever you want. However you can start from where you are and add the content in that you want if you DON’T want to start from scratch…..you should be fine.
If you want similar look, try the Docs first – http://appfinite.com/theme-setup/aspire-theme-setup/

question. when i download the plugins it tells me to download such as genesis enews extended, it goes to my downloads folder and I have a bunch of files. but I dont see the file with the extension that i have to import…
Do you know what i mean?

Sorry, I’m not sure what you mean.
Are you downloading the plugin to your computer or through the WordPress Admin itself? It’s much easier to just add/install the plugin through the WordPress Plugin installer.
Once you have all the plugins that the demo uses FIRST (mentioned in the Documentation/Tutorial) then you should be able to upload the Import file from the Docs and it should load everything perfectly.
That’s IF you want to upload all of the content from the Demo. If not, then you can manually add in the widgets you want from the demo once the required plugins are installed.

Hi. Okay yea when I download its not a zip file. its a folder with a css file for example and some .php files among others. this is when i download from the internet. i just bought another plugin and same thing happened.
so you’re saying to download from inside wordpress? i looked and didn’t find the genesis enews extended. could it be with a different name maybe?
thanks for your time eric

Huh? That’s weird, it should download to your computer as a zip file first. Then you should be able to take that zip file and install it in WordPress through your Plugins page. What type of computer are you using, Mac or PC?
That’s one way to do it, you can still upload/install this plugin by using the WordPress Plugin area by going to Plugins > Add New and then search for the plugin from your Plugins page instead. Just type in Genesis eNews Extended and it will show up. Click install, and then activate.

ok what i did is converted it back into a zip file and then it worked. i guess this is the way i should do it because it happens with any new plug in i get,
using a mac.

@Mikesoca I’ve helped 2 other people with that same issue by logging in and doing it for them (since it works on my computer). I have no idea why it converts to a txt file for some but not for others.
Let me know if you want me to login and install it for you.
BTW, I just noticed if I download from Chrome (browser) it downloads as a .wie file. But I just downloaded from Safari, and it shows up as a txt file. I wonder if that has something to do with it….
