How to fix "Broken Theme/Stylesheet Missing WordPress" Theme Issues


#1

Hi everyone!

Support frequently gets refund requests from WordPress theme buyers who believe that the theme which they have purchased is broken because they get a “Broken Theme/Stylesheet Missing WordPress” error when uploading or activating the theme on their WordPress installation.

These errors generally occur because the theme has been installed incorrectly.

Our moderator & support extraordinaire Drew (CreatingDrew) has created a really helpful screencast & article which clearly & simply explains how to solve this problem if you’re having problems.

You can find the full article & screencast here: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269/0/my-wordpress-theme-isnt-working-what-should-i-do

When installing Blue Business theme, after isolation of the template files, including the .css style sheet, I still get the same error “Stylesheet is missing”…YIKES! Any experience with this particular theme installation? Do I need to remain the html folder?
