If this has happened to you, you can to choose to upload the WordPress theme manually through FTP.

  1. Connect to your Podgily hosting account using FTP.
  2. Navigate to the /wp-content/themes folder for your hosted WordPress site.
  3. Upload your theme to this folder (If your theme is zipped, you will need to unzip it).
  4. If your theme has a custom stylesheet, repeat steps 1-3 above.

After you upload the theme, you can activate it from within your WordPress Admin Dashboard.
