Better Discord Themes not downloading or Installing
So far we were on how to install better discord and the top 20 better discord themes to use.
But most of the users are reporting that they are having trouble while downloading the theme or while installing. So here I am sharing the easy method to fix this as this is the only cause behind the failure.
Better Discord Theme not downloading
When you click on the download button, it comes up in a new window where it checks your browser before accessing better discord. So either it will be stuck on this page saying redirected or will give you an error message.
The main cause here seems like the browser cache. Copy the theme link and paste it into your chrome browser, if you are not using chrome. If you are already using chrome then click on the 3 dots at the very right-hand top and choose “Incognito Mode”.
Paste the theme link in incognito mode and then click on download. The theme will be now downloaded.
Better Discord Theme not Installing
Now once the theme has been downloaded, open the theme folder and drag the plugin from the download folder to the theme folder.
If this still not working then make sure the theme you have downloaded does not contain any extra suffix like 1 or 2.
Sometimes we download the file twice and when you will drag the duplicate file (1) then it won’t work. To delete the extra theme file and drag the original one as shown in the image.
