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.

Frequently Asked Questions

WordPress says the theme is broken, and the stylesheet is missing.

The zip file you downloaded from ThemeForest contains more than just the theme files. Unzip the file, and read the installation-instructions.txt document. If you are only able to install a theme by uploading to WP-Admin, there’s a zip of the theme files only in the www-zip directory.

I have a custom logo which is a transparent image, and I can see the site name in plain text under it. Why?

That’s happening because I use an image replacement technique for the logo, which drops an image over top of the text. With the image being transparent, you can see the text behind it.

It can be fixed pretty easily by adding a negative indent to the logo’s text. This will make it appear way to the left, out of visible range. Add the following to the head include section of Theme Settings.

<style type="text/css">
  #logo-custom {
      text-indent: -9999px;
