    Hi, I keep getting this error message when i try to install iwatch:
    "Warning: file (/home/content/11/5329311/html/wordpress/wpcontent/themes/iwatch/style.css) [function.file]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/11/5329311/html/wordpress/wp-includes/theme.php on line 180

    Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Invalid arguments passed in /home/content/11/5329311/html/wordpress/wp-includes/theme.php on line 180

    (but above that message, it says "installed successfully." It is not showing up anywhere so it of course was not successful...)

    Anyone have any thoughts? thanks!!

    The theme is missing a critical file - functions.php.

    Thanks esmi. Sooo...does that mean its a bad theme, and i should find a new one? or might there be a different way to get it?

    It could be a bad download. How do you install the theme - manually or via the WP Admin? if it was the former, are you sure that uploaded the entire theme folder?

    It was via the WP admin. When i downloaded the file, it was a rar file...so i zipped it using a program because wp wanted a zip file. I'm pretty sure i did the whole thing...

    If you can unpack a rar archive, do so and then re-package the resulting folder as a zip file.
