Having trouble installing a theme MANUALLY. Help please (3 posts)

    So I recently got a WordPress theme and it's a free version, simply because I am only testing out some things before I really start trying to create a business online.

    Anyway, I love the theme and everything so I downloaded it - before I downloaded it, I read the comments of people who had already installed it and they said they loved it and it worked fine for them -... it failed to upload so I went to mySQL and uploaded it there.

    I then returned to my wordpress and to my themes, note this is the first time I have done this so when I went to my themes it was there. I was so happy. Haha.

    I activated it and checked it out on how it looked... and well... it only showed the top bit and the rest of it was blank at the bottom. I couldn't figure out what I did wrong.

    The folder was in a zip with all the files... plugins and themes. Now, could it be because I did not put the themes and plugins of the theme in a different place or did I do it correct?

    I don't know why that is happening.

    Could someone please help me. I'd love you forever. Ha


    JUST TO ADD: I CHECKED THE FOLDER ONCE AGAIN AND EVERYTHING IS IN THERE, THE CSS STUFF, JAVASCRIPTS, IMAGES, PAGE, SIDEBAR ETC... SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON.

    Note: I have taken the theme down now, but I still want to know what's causing it.

    This is the message that came up when installing ...

    PHP Error Message

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_carousel() in /home/a9489345/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/celebrism/header.php on line 70
