I tried installing my newspaper wordpress theme and i keep getting this error…Sorry, you are not allowed to access this page.

please kindly assist fast…thanks


You have to install the theme zip not the full download zip. Please unzip the main full download (All files & documentation) and then locate the installable theme file within it. Luckily most developers clearly label their files, so it should be pretty easy to find.

Another way go to Your download page Downloads. You can download ‘Installable WordPress file only’ from there and install from wp-admin.

Please check this helpful Theme Installation guide article:
