Error: Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet


When attempting to install a theme on WordPress for the first time, you may experience an error message stating:

"The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed."


No worries! This is quite a common mistake and simple to remedy.

When you purchase a theme license from our shop & download the theme package, you will receive a zipped folder titled something like "".

Unzip this first theme package folder.


NOTE: On some computers, you can double-click on the .zip folder and look inside the folder without actually unzipping it. Make sure you right-click on the .zip file and choose "Decompress" or "Unzip" from the menu.

Within the unzipped theme package, you will find an additional zipped file with the theme's name as the title ( for example: "" ).

THIS zipped file is what you will install onto WordPress.
