cant upload the theme

I keep getting this error msg. Can someone please help. I just paid for this and it doesnt even work!!

The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme installation failed.

You should contact the author directly to get your solution. Only they can provide you the best assistance. Cheers. :slight_smile:

This is a common error and it has nothing to do with the theme. Make sure the item you bought is in fact a WordPress theme, and see here:

  1. Be sure you have wp theme
  2. From tf download only WordPress theme not all. Or if you download all, unzip it and inatall only theme.
  3. You can use ftp to upload theme as folder

That issue is because you install non wp theme or entire pack.

If you purchase WordPress theme then you can upload it and install it well. if there is any kind of problem then contact with that item author with item purchasing code hope they will help you.


If you purchase a HTML template that will not install ever some time many one make this mistake going to upload HTML Template and want to install it :frowning:

I have face this issue few time from purchasers.

hope helpful for your
