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 set Standard blog appearance instead of Masonry one?
8. How can I set Standard blog appearance instead of Masonry one? The standard blog is available here Dashboard -> Settings -> Reading -> Front page displays -> Your latest posts. In order to provide our customers with new custom design of a blog page we created a Blog ñ Masonry template. So as standard blog template is available via Reading Settings, it is not not included to the Theme templates list.
My images are not being displayed!
Please, check whether you have set right CHMOD properties: “777” to /wp-content/themes/dt-slash/cache/ “644” to /wp-content/themes/dt-slash/resize.php “777” to /wp-content/uploads/ If you do not know how to deal with CHMOD settings, please, follow “How to set CHMOD properties?” instructions.
The following folders should have 755 CHMOD settings: /wp-content/, /wp-content/themes/, /wp-content/themes/dt-slash/. Some servers require 755 to be applied to /wp-content/themes/dt-slash/resize.php file. Therefore we suggest you to check this option either.
