Flatsome Theme fails to upload because the theme is missing style.css stylesheet.

I am very frustrated right now, I just paid $59 for the Flatsome Theme and it won’t even upload into my Wordpress. Every time that I try to install the zip file, I receive the following messages:

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Theme installation failed.

Does anyone know how to fix this?


Make sure you select the “Installable WordPress file only” option. If you select “All files & documentation”, you will not be able to install this zip as is. Instead unzip the file and then locate the installable theme file within it. Luckily most developers clearly label their files, so it should be pretty easy to find.

you can check this helpful article stylesheet error

Also you can unzip your purchased download (All files & documentation) and check the theme documentation hopefully you will get necessary support in documentation how to install and all necessary help. If you have still problem with the theme then The best way to get the support is Contact your purchased Theme Author.

Contact Author because Item Author are best expert about their Item functionality.


Thank you for the fast response! Your feedback solved the issue. :slight_smile:
