Hi – I just purchased GP Premium to upgrade the features on my new site’s theme. I am able to download the .zip file (generatepress.1.2.4). I followed your very well laid out steps to upload and install in my plugins on wordpress….however….this is the message I get:
Unpacking the package…
Installing the plugin…
The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.
generatepress.1.2.4 is the free theme file – that’s not the file you want to install as a plugin.
When you purchased, you should have been emailed a download link for GP Premium. If you made an account, which it looks like you did, you can go to your account page (https://genertepress.com/account) and download the file as well.
Then install that .zip as a plugin, and you should be good to go.
