Hi! I changed the URL of the author in theme description (style.css), but I
can not upload it again - site displays an error that the name of the
theme is already in use. How I can re-upload the theme?

thanx you all

>>  Unfortunately we cannot accept Theme and Author URLs because they are in

>>  For various reasons related to our WordPress trademark, we ask if you're

>>  variation. We're not lawyers, but very good ones tell us we have to do

>>  If you already have a domain with "WordPress" in it, redirecting it to

>>  "wp" equivalent is fine, just as long as the main one users see and you
>>  promote doesn't contain "WordPress."
>>  "WordPress" in sub-domains is fine, like wordpress.example.com, we're

>>  We've told this to anyone who has ever asked us, we just wanted to make

>>  <whine>But I see other domains using WordPress in them!</whine>
>>  If they're not WordPress.com, WordPress.net, WordPress.org, WordPress.tv,
>>  or WordPressFoundation.org, they're not allowed, and you should contact
>>  the owner with a pointer to this page. We see this most frequently with
>>  spammy sites distributing plugins and themes with malware in them, which
