OK, I have Googled this, but still fail to get it running. I downloaded ” Modernize’’ and via FTP with Filezilla, loaded on my sever in the wordpress themes folder. Idea is to get it up and running over my blog (no one reads anyway) and then once its ready, replace my website with it. So it is uploaded, and then when I go to my themes in wordpress, I get told to following. Any easy straight forward layman term help would be much appreciated.

Broken Themes

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

Name Description mod Stylesheet is missing.

You’ve likely committed the ultimate WP noob sin! (Just kidding – LOL ).

Just extract the zip package you downloaded from ThemeForest and upload the actual theme zip contained within instead. You’ll also probably want to check the “Media” section of WordPress now too so you can “delete” the zip you uploaded as it’s not useful in that form and wastes space.

This goes for most (but not all) wordpress related items purchased at through Envato marketplaces and is not specific to the modernize theme in question.

Did this solve your issue? I’d suggest contacting the author instead of posting here for future inquiries.

Yep, tried that a million different ways, watched the video too, no luck. deleted, re-installed, downloaded again, re-installed. To contact the author I have to find some number and sign up to a forum, at which time I was ready to rip this computer from the desk, so thought I would try here. I will try the author today then
