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.

Update the Twitter settings
Since 12 june 2013 twitter oficially retired their API v1 https://dev.twitter.com/blog/api-v1-is-retired
So all the themes using twitter wigets must use new settings in order to extract the latest tweets from a specific account.
I-A) Create an application using your twitter account
Login on https://dev.twitter.com using your twitter account and create a New application. Make sure you complete all the steps corectly including your domain name.
After creating the application go inside of the details page of that app and on the tab called “OAuth tool” you will see the details we will need.
The details we will need are Consumer key, Consumer secret, Access token and Access token secret
I-B) Add the new settings to the theme
On 12 june 2013 we have updated this theme with some new files in order to suport the new twitter requirements.
The new files were added inside the theme folder/admin folder/ twitter folder.
The most important file there are index.php and cache folder
Open the index.php file and add the corect values for
// Your Twitter App Consumer Key private $consumer_key = ’.....ad your code here…..’;
// Your Twitter App Consumer Secret private $consumer_secret = ’.....ad your code here…..’;
// Your Twitter App Access Token private $user_token = ’.....ad your code here…..’;
// Your Twitter App Access Token Secret private $user_secret = ’.....ad your code here…..’;
Another important value is the cache time
// Cache interval (minutes) private $cache_interval = 15;
The new functionality of this script is to cache your latest tweets at a specific time interval. So you can set there the nr of minutes.
As for the “cache” folder, when you will update the theme files make sure that folder have the corect permisions (755).
Other than this updates the rest of the twitter settings in this theme will function normally. See the General tab in the custom admin panel for the rest of the settings.
