Getting this message when attempting to upload Bravo Theme to Wordpress: “The link you followed has expired.” I just purchased the theme a few days ago. Had it uploaded but encountered problems. Deleted and when attempting to reload received error message.
PHP has a configuration file maintained by your hosting provider, and there are two notable options in this file with the following defaults (‘M’ = MB):
upload_max_filesize = 2M post_max_size = 8M
If you try to upload a file larger than either of these configured sizes, PHP will deny the upload. WordPress typically returns “the link you followed has expired” when this issue occurs.
If you have a way to edit the PHP configuration, you can try raising these limits. Otherwise, you can contact your hosting provider and they should be able to increase it for you.
You can alternatively upload the theme manually over FTP to avoid this problem altogether.
ftp worked. Thanks for the help.
