Hi all, after building my website, I received a message saying "Broken theme, parent theme missing". When I tried to choose for another theme by pressing the "Add new theme", it says "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration." How do I solve this problem? Can I delete the whole website and redo again? Thanks for helping.

Select a new Theme. I've had that same message before while trying to Install a new Theme. It's okay. Just keep trying...

HAHA...you have access to over 3K Themes. I promise!
Okay, if you're already there, click Add New.
You will see Featured, Popular, and Latest. You have to click on each of those in order to scroll and view. So click on each and have fun, BUT NOT TOO MUCH FUN.
Install and Activate.
Save.

When I click Add new, I got this error message:
"An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums."
And there are no available theme for me to choose.

When you get the error you can't select a Theme. So clear your cache and reset your computer. This happened to me last week. I was fine afterward.

It's still the same. But I found a way to solve it. I select the theme from wordpress's website and upload manually to my site.
