Blog theme RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just got back into blogging, and decided to try Writer. However, the theme won't work.


    I've tried to change my theme on my blog (http://half-death.net ) but it did not seem to work. It still showed up in the same broken way.

    blogtemplates.rar <-- This is my blogtemplates folder. You'll notice that the images folder seems to be broken. The image files are there, but there is no data in there. I attempted to upload the images from my wordpress ftp to those 2 folders (and the style.css), but the only thing that changed was that the style.css worked now. The images still didn't appear.

    I also tried to disable all of my plugins, but that didn't do anything either. There might have been some remnants though.

    Any ideas? :(

  • Sorry to trouble you but do you mind re-uploading the blogtemplates folder as .zip? Or e-mail it to me at joe.cheng *AT* microsoft.com. Thanks!

  • Wow! That's very strange. Do you have any "download manager" programs installed? What anti-virus software, if any, do you use? (Sometimes we see weird symptoms like this when other programs invade Windows' networking stack and have bugs in them.)

  • No download manager except for DownThemAll! for firefox. I use BitDefender currently, though a few days ago (after getting writer and seeing that the theme didn't work) I switched to BitDefender from Avast.
