Hi I Just bought a theme after payment and then downloaded it and installed it using the wp. Same error “missing style.css” Then I unzipped the theme and via FTP uploaded the theme folder . Now what?

Nothing show up on the home screen/WP page. There is nothing I can activate or have it running on the user end. Looks like nothing happened.

Pls help

Inside your main downloaded zip you should have instructions detailing how to first – activate the theme – then setup etc If you are having difficulty with that I recommend contacting the author either via their profile page, the comment area of the item or whatever support direction is supplied in your documentation.

Hope that helps

Jonathan

Hello,

The download you have is the right one, the problem is themeforest packs there themes because there are more than just the “theme” files included in the download, you need to unzip the file you download from themeforest first, the proper file that you should install are located inside.

The folder’s name which has style.css file is “showtime_v3.3” Is that the one you are talking abt?

I tried everything but still its missing style.css file. When I upload it directly to the “wp-content/themes” folder, wp does not show up any thing installed.

Is there a way i can provide the webmaster my wp login details and get it done

There should be clear instructions provided in your download on how to install your theme – if you have difficulties you will need to contact the author of the file either by their profile page, the comment area of the item, or if there are specific support instructions supplied inside the pre-mentioned documentation.
