THIS SHOULD HELP MANY OF YOU =]
if the theme is packaged like the ones in the marketplace you put them in the /packages folder you know its a package if it has a controller.php in it
I do have a few questions though.
What's the difference between just a theme and a package?
Why don't some themes have the "Save for later" option? (that would eliminate the above steps)
Thanks again everyone in the C5 community!
Packages can contain more than just the theme, it can contain stuff such as other custom templates, blocks, single_pages etc, also, Packages have version numbers while Themes alone do not
While I cant speak specifically about whatever theme you are having problems with, anything in the marketplace has been through a thorough review and testing process by experienced developers and the core c5 team.
Such a process can never be perfect. Every site is different, so there is always a risk of a combinations of c5 version, host, site, content, addons, themes and overrides coming together in a way that leads to a problem (when put like that, it makes me wonder why anything ever works).
The mark of a good developer is not just how thoroughly they develop something in the first place, but how quickly and meticulously they sort out subsequent problems (which there always will be).
