Common WordPress Installation Issues
Missing style sheet error when installing the theme
A common issue that can occur with users new to installing WordPress themes is a “Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme. This error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly. Luckily, there is a very easy fix.

How can I select specific a category for my portfolio page template?
You can use the custom field with the name “wpex_portfolio_page_category” and then enter the ID of the portfolio category for the value field.
If you want the filter of specific categoryes, you can create a parent category and use the ID of that one so the child categories will show up as the filterable buttons.
There was a bug in WP 3.4 if your custom fields aren’t working, download the custom fields fix plugin.
