Hello. I purchased two themes. Good News theme, which installed fine. Also, Multinews, Multi-purpose Wordpress News,Magazine, however, this theme fails to install because it’s missing a CSS file. The message I receive is:
Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-8103494-multinews-multipurpose-wordpress-newsmagazine.zip Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme install failed.
I was led to one link only that stated: Download theme file here as was the case with the Good News theme. Should I have been directed to another page? Could you please indicate where the “Installable WordPress Files Only” link is? I will navigate to this page to obtain the correct download. Thank you.
You are installing the wrong file. In your download page select download >> ‘Installable WordPress Files Only’ and use that one
I am also getting the error: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
I do not see the download link that reads “Installable Wordpress File”. I only have a link that reads “All files & documentation”.
How do I find this installable Wordpress file?
Please note that the file you have purchased is not a WordPress theme, but a html template. That would explain the error you are getting. Only WordPress themes work with WordPress, and typically, these items are priced higher than html templates.
You can find the WordPress version of the same file here
Please be sure to check the Item Description and the Project sidebar (on the right) where you can find all the technical details, such as supported WordPress version and browser compatibility, to ensure that the item fits your needs and compatible with your server.
