Is this a common issue? or is there something else I should be doing?

“Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

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

Are you sure it is a WP theme? Which file is it?

If yes:

You are trying to install the entire download and not just the “theme” file.

You’re right.

How does one just install the WP theme? I only see the option to install the zipped folder.

The theme folder may or may not be zipped depending on which one it is.

If it is (JUST the theme NOT the entire download from here) then install it via WP-admin or… >br>
if the the THEME folder is unzipped then you can choose between zipping it and following instructions above or uploading the UNZIPPED version via FTP .

Ok, the .zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest, unzip it, and in there you should have .zip file with the name of the theme. That is the zip file you need to upload (just to make sure, open that zip too and in there, you should have style.css file and bunch of php files).

If you still don’t manage it, contact me via my profile and I’ll help you over teamviewer

I can’t find it. maybe it is because I bought for 15$? maybe it is not full file?

That’s not a WP theme that’s a HTML file at that price – this will not work on Wordpress
