Error: My Theme is missing the style.css stylesheet

For the newbie users it’s the common problem with which they always got stucked once for a while. Actually it happens when you mistakenly try to upload the wrong zip file to your WordPress blog.

This is the error message you get from the backend of the WordPress :

“The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.”

But do not worry! This is quite a common mistake and is very simple to fix it.

When you purchase our theme’s license from ThemeForest & download the theme package, you will receive a zipped folder titled something like “themeforest-8253073-our-theme-name“.

For e.g. themeforest-16521954-hazzle-personal-travel-blog-theme

Unzip this first theme package folder.

Within the unzipped theme package, you will find an additional zipped file with the theme’s name as the title ( for example: “hazzle.zip” ).

THIS zipped file is what you will have to install onto your WordPress Dashboard.
