Hi,

This is probably a Wordpress 3.4 error since some of our Themes got the error on the upload form after updating to 3.4 version. We had to update one of the files to repair it, but since each Theme is different you should contact the author about it.

Best regards

Hello. I am trying to install the Karma theme that I purchased and after I install it and then try to activate it… it displays the ‘Cheatin’ uh?’ page. I have tried everything that I could think of including updating everything, disabling everything in the WordPress account and even deleted and re-installed WordPress. I am at a loss… and could really use some help on this.

Hi! This is a general ThemeForest forum. For product-specific support, please contact the author of that theme through their profile page. You can find the profile page by clicking the author avatar on the product page. Thanks! :slight_smile:

I just tested both themes and everything seems ok. Try this:

Have you tried:
  • deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

  • switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

  • resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

  • re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

Also consider giving this a good read too.

As far as I know this happens when you try to upload some media without having any instance related to it. This usually happens when you are trying to upload something on the theme options area. If this is the case the theme code must be changed so that the media links to something.
Changing Wordpress core files is never good!

I’ve noticed the same problem several times in different themes with Option framework inside. Just add this line to the functions.php file:

add_action( ‘init’, ‘optionsframework_mlu_init’);

Hope this help :slight_smile:

  1. This thread is old.
  2. The Options Framework was updated and it does not use this function anymore.
  3. “Cheatin Uh?” is gone.
