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!
