Unable to download Graphene Theme

  • dominicmoore13



    Try as I may I can’t download the Graphene theme onto WordPress 3.8.1.

    Up to today, when I clicked on “Install now” I was getting either:

    Could not copy file.graphene/languages/nl_NL.po


    Could not copy file.graphene/languages/ru_RU.po

    This must refer to Dutch or Russian, but I only wanted an English version.

    Today I get this instead:

    Downloading install package from https://wordpress.org/themes/download/graphene.1.9.2.zip…

    Download failed. Failed to write request to temporary file.

    Someone suggested I should deactivate all plugins & then try to download Graphene. It didn’t work, made no difference at all. I’m baffled!

    Any idea why I can’t install Graphene? I posted this question on the WordPress forum, but have had no replies after over two days.

    I’d really appreciate any helpful suggestions, as I’m at a very basic level of computing skills.

    Best wishes,

    Have you tried downloading the theme to your local computer and then installing it via FTP?

    (No need to SHOUT, btw.)



    Thanks for your quick reply.

    I tried a zip file download from the Graphene site, sadly the end result was “failed to copy to disk”. Sorry about the capitals in the heading – force of habit, not meant to be a shout….

    And I was told this would be so simple…..
