I recently installed the elision theme on wordpress via ftp. I got the following message:
“The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.”
Does anyone know what a stylesheet and template are? Are they extra files, or did something go wrong in the transfer?
You are probably trying to install wrong file. You can try to open that file that you downloaded and find file that you need to install, you can also check the documentation to see if it’s explained which file need to be installed.
Well I am copying the entire document exactly as I received it from the website. All I did was extract it from its zip folder and then copy it over via ftp
In your download page here click the download button and select “Installable WordPress File Only” – either use this via the dashboard or as you did unzip it and use ftp.
