    same problem here:

    Unable to create swift_custom folder in wp-content/uploads, please create the folder and make it writable

    i created:

    /public_html/wp-content/uploads/swift_custom

    permissions were 755.
    i even tried 777 but it doesn't work.

    check if swift_custom folder has these two files
    custom-styles.css
    swift-js-fucntions.js

    If they are present, ignore the error message.

    they are not present.

    i also tried switching back and forth to other themes while i tried to set 777 permissions, but nothing is generated. i am using SwiftPremium v0.6

    url is: saltyname.com/pixelmania/
    i noted that in html code there is a call to a "files" dir which is not existing also:
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='SwiftCustomStyles-css' href='http://saltyname.com/pixelmania/files/swift_custom/custom-style.css?ver=3.1.3' type='text/css' media='screen' />
    i think there may be a bug regarding "uploads" or "files" directory because i don't see any call to "uploads" in the url above.

    I think you changed your uploads directory
    Create the the following files with write permissions
    files/swift_custom/custom-styles.css
    /swift-js-functions.js

    Unable to create swift_custom folder in wp-content/uploads, please create the folder

    We are having this problem as well and only one of our websites does not have this message. For the rest of our sites, we are getting the message:

    "Unable to create swift_custom folder in wp-content/uploads, please create the folder and make it writable"

    We just bought the Swift theme V.06 and are using WordPress version 3.1.4.

    Is there any other information you need in order to help us out? We really appreciate the help!

    If you are not having problems with changing colours and sliders, you can safely ignore that warning message.
