Wordpress Themes Not Uploading to BlueHost Properly


#1

I have tried uploading several Elements Wordpress Themes and I get the same error:

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

Theme installation failed.

THEMES FROM OTHER VENDORS:
I can upload themes from other vendors with no problems.

CSS FILE IS IN THE ZIP FOLDER:
I see the CSS files in the zip folder (no style.css stylesheet). Maybe there’s an issue in your QA process.

I’M ONLY HAVING THE PROBLEM WITH ENVATO ELEMENTS:
I think it’s too coincidental that both themes from different authors returned the same exact error message, but I had zero issues uploading two themes from two different vendors to BlueHost.

It is because you are installing the entire package. You need to install only the parent theme zip file. You can find that after extracting the theme package. Hope that helps.

Assuming these are WP themes you are trying to install then check this link https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/202821510-Theme-is-missing-the-style-css-stylesheet-error
