Hello there,

Thank you for reporting.

Could you confirm if the file permissions of the following folders were assigned to 755 (writable)?

  • wp-content
  • wp-content/uploads
  • wp-content/uploads/ all folders

Navigate here for more comprehensive information.


I have several websites, and i tried to use moesia theme but not working so far.

Hello there,

i just changed " wp-content" “upload” “xml” as 755

but it still doesn’t work …

I go to the Type > Settings and there is nowhere to import. Its not showing the options below the main selections that show up on the video.

Hello @dohnutz,

Thank you for posting in.

In the newer version of the Types plugin, the import menu can be accessed through Types > Dashboard > Types Tools > Import/Export.
