Unable to install Brixton Theme - "The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet."

Hi there,

I’m having troubles installing the Brixton theme, I get this error:

"Installing Theme from uploaded file: elements-brixton-a-responsive-wordpress-blog-theme-TRUYN37-HmYPvDid-10-08.zip

Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme installation failed."

Any ideas?

Ahhh just noticed from your file name that you’re probably using Envato Elements. There’s no easy button on there to download the installable file.

You’ll need to extract the zip file somewhere on your computer, and look for another zip file inside with the theme’s name. Upload that one. More details here:

Thx, ya I realized that a few seconds after writing that post and taking a look at what’s inside the .zip.

The page I downloaded it from isn’t as instructive as the one you’re showing:

All good, figured it out.
