    I uploaded a new theme and went to the theme admin page, selected yes to activate and then clicked update theme.

    It returns a page with two forms and a button below that says authenticate. When I select activation I get a
    :Redirect Loop

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

    Have you successfully added themes in the past? Is this a premium theme?

    What's the page with 2 forms? Because it's not supposed to do that.

    premium theme shouldn't matter.

    I do not know what it is. It has two rectangles that look like a place to add your username and password. I tried this but it did not matter.

    btw. I wouldn't just enter my login details into a form that pops up after I change themes, who knows where it might be reporting your login details to...
