Hello All,

I am trying to submit the following Theme to the Theme Gallery:

http://www.digioz.com/downloads/orchardcms/SilverBlog.zip

However I am receiving the following error when I do so:
The Package could not be created from the external source: Package does not contain a manifest.
Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? The Theme.txt file is in the zip file, so I am not sure why the error is showing up.

Thanks
Pete

You have to use the command line tool to package themes. A theme package is not just a zip file with assets in it.

Please follow instructions from the documentation:

Thank you very much sebastien! I am new to the project so I wasn't aware of this.

The theme has been added to the Gallery and is now available:

Thanks,
