Right, dealing with this error message has not been pretty but I have worked it out:

I selected the post it theme.

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

It is very simple – but only when you know how.

So you when you download the file, you get a folder on your computer called themeforest-55417-post-it.

You have to go into that folder and find the next folder down which will be the folder with the name of the theme, e.g. ‘post-it’.

You right click the folder ‘post_it’. Then press ‘compress to zip’.

Then go into wordpress and select that zip folder and upload to install.

I hope this helps others as the last two hours for me have been quite painful!

i’M REALLY lost , i bought celebrete magneto theme that i’ve bought. When i want to install it on wordpress, it keeps giving me this message: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

Do you have a step by step (folder by folder) how to do it. Because i read your comments and nothing helped me. I looked into my folders and i found a folder named css and inside there was a file named style i-e

Hello,

The theme you purchased isn’t for WordPress it’s for magento(another CMS ) so you cannot install it with WordPress

I believe you are uploading the whole file you got from tf. you need to unzip it and then upload the zip file within the package. you see, the first archive contains all the files, like the documentation, some psd files and the zipped wp theme. If you still cant get it to work refer to the documentation or if you would like someone to do it via remote session i am available. You can contact me as well as take a look at my testimonials /feedback on my profile page http://themeforest.net/user/Marvidude .

Broken Themes The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

Name Description Improvement The parent theme is missing. Please install the “genesis” parent theme.
