Can anyone help me figure out how to get my theme (cnews) to install? I have tried installing through my file manager and also directly on wordpress. I have also unzipped and followed those instructions. Every time it says that there is no stylesheet.

I’m getting really frustrated. This is not the first time I’ve uploaded a themeforest theme. I am trying to do this one just like the others… but it’s not working.

Please help!!!

You should locate the folder where the theme is stored e.g “theme” or “cnews” and in that folder should be “style.css” “header.php” and so on. Just zip that folder e.g “theme” into a zipp and upload it.

When an author uploads his theme however, he is forced to upload a zip file that can be installed directly so it should be there since he couldn’t put it up for sale if that file wasn’t there :)

Good luck.

Thank you. Yes, I have found that folder. There is a zip file too but I’ve tried to upload that and I still get the error. I’ll try to zip it myself (not sure how to do that) and then upload it. Getting very frustrated as I’ve spent several hours trying to figure this out. Thanks for you help.

It seems that there was a problem with the server and the theme so my host is fixing this. HostGator does awesome technical support! Thank you all that replied to this!

I think i got the same problem Bought the insomania theme and when uploading it to wordpress i have got this message : “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Theme install failed.” Any idea what to do? By the way, where can i find tutorials for this theme, and support from specialist?

Check out the link in one of the above replies. That may work for you. But I had to get help from my hosting site to fix some stuff. I don’t understand all that .php language, but they did something to fix it. Good luck.

@Eschwein- glad u got it sorted

@shai77- read this link … You almost certainly are trying to upload the wrong folder.
http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269/0/my-wordpress-theme-isnt-working-what-should-i-do

As for tutorials there will be some documentation with the files in the download that will demonstrate certain theme features and valid support questions can go to the author but remember you are buying a building block framework not hand holding tutorials in WP design or how to use the theme. If you require help with customisation then you may need to hire a specialist freelancer.
Good luck
