I don’t see a Wordpress theme called that – are you SURE you bought a WP theme NOT a SITE template?

If so you need to extract the THEME FOLDER out of the download from here OR in your DOWNLOADS page make sure you click “Installable Wordpress File Only”

That file is a theme for Forum software called phpBB. It sounds like you are trying to install it in WordPress, but this is not a WordPress theme, so it won’t work with WordPress. If you want a WordPress theme, you need to pick a file from the WordPress section. Hope that makes sense.

You haven’t purchased any WordPress themes, which would explain why it’s not working :)

Was there ever a resolution for this issue? I’m getting the same error message. I downloaded a Digital Trends Bundle with five different ThemeForest themes. Two of them installed fine, but with the other three I get that same error message.

“The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”

Only two of themeforest items in that bundle were WordPress themes. Other two are a Muse template and a html template.
