Purchased the WP Theme Won't Install


#1

I purchased the We Change WP petition. Got the following message.

Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Theme installation failed.

Need help.


#2

Either:

  1. it’s not a WP theme
  2. you are trying to upload the wrong folder
  3. try this https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821510-Theme-is-missing-the-style-css-stylesheet-error

#3

It is a one page WordPress theme.


#4

Then follow the link about and make sure you are using the correct folder.

  • www.themeforest.net/downloads (assuming you are logged in)

  • Click download next to item

  • Choose “Installable WordPress file only”

  • Use that zip

That worked. Thanks a million.


#6

Unfortunately, none of the demo text and images did not import.


#7

What error do you get when you try and import demo content?

Have you checked the documentation in case there is some specific process?

It’s not uncommon for images to not be included. If it’s this one https://themeforest.net/item/petition-wechange-one-page-wordpress-theme/12324231 then it does say " 2. IMPORTANT: Please note that the pictures & videos are not included."


#8

The WP only download does not have everything in it. I know the images and video are not included. But I have images on the site to substitute for that.

www.stoptowingourcars.com This site does not look anything like the demo.

Thre’s more info here http://curlythemes.com/support/docs/wechange-wp-theme/ otherwise you should open a ticket there with the author.

That said from your demo there are clearly things that have not been done including, setting the front page, activating missing plugins like contact form 7

I submitted a ticket a few minutes ago. And I have been following the steps. The import demo option under tools, is not there. Just a list of widgets.

I guess I have to have patience.

Thanks

When you click tools > import you should be able to choose WordPress from a list and install the necessary plugin which you need to import an XML file


#12

It’s not has easy as that. They do not have these files labled like that.


#13

I hired someone and he was not able to install the theme the way the demo is designed. I will have to put in another ticket for help.
