missing style sheet error

I am having trouble uploading a theme I bought on Themeforest. It is showing missing style sheet error but stylesheet is already there. I have already contacted the Author but I have not received any response and this is causing a delay.


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.

The Installable WordPress file option is missing on the download options. What should I do in this case?

What is your item name exactly can you tell us ?
Hope we can help you more easily.

Hi unlockdesign,
Here is a link to the Item(https://themeforest.net/item/le-mars-minimal-personal-blog-html-template/23552513).
I have taken all these steps (except trying FTP) since yesterday to upload the theme.
Now I am trying to upload it thru FTP, it’s not working.

I have tried to upload this theme in 3 other websites but it failed to upload.

In that case sorry to say you didn’t purchased wordpress theme. your purchased item is an html template. So, you can’t install it as like wordpress theme.

What should I do?

you can contact that Item Author and request them if they have any wordpress version of the html. Thanks

I contacted the author three days ago, no one has responded to any of my messages.
