    Hello,

    my name is jody and i am all new to websites and wordpress. I tried to install the ATLAS theme in WordPress, but it gives me the same error message all over again:

    theme: http://themeforest.net/item/atlas-for-photography-creative-portfolio/306532
    error message: The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Theme install failed.

    Am I doing something wrong? Any help from anybody would be welcome.

  2. We do not support commercial themes here.

    Please contact the theme author for instructions on how to install his theme.

    You can try to unpack the compressed file and upload the theme folder to your current wordpress instalation via FTP (all themes are stored in wp-content/themes)
    Then you can activate it in your wordpress admin panel

    When did you contact the author regarding this issue? Themeforest sellers always try to reply within 24h. please allow them to get back to you before finding other ways to get this sorted :)

    Well, i tried that too, via Filezilla. The point is, i never get to see the installed theme in my admin panel. It's mentioned in the broken themes with the message: stylesheet is missing

    Hey Jodysteyls,

    It sounds like you've uploaded the entire ZIP file that you downloaded from ThemeForest. You actually need to open that ZIP file first, and inside you can find the theme's ZIP file itself, and most likely some documentation to help you find it.

    We have a video on our knowledgebase here that will help you out: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Live/Knowledgebase/Article/View/269/0/my-wordpress-theme-isnt-working-what-should-i-do

    Good luck! :)
