    Downloaded theme from Themeforest and tried to load.

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

    No help so far from Themeforest and could find no way to connect with the author, WPexplorer.

    Anybody out there who can/will help?

    Can you provide a link to the theme you purchased on Themeforest?

    Did you upload this directly through FTP or through the upload theme system in the wordpress control panel? That might be the issue as this theme has a lot going on.

    I tried to upload through the WordPress control panel. I do not know how to FTP anything.

    Log into your hosting and find File Manager (all hosting sites are different). Go to your root, website domain name, wp-content, wp-themes, upload the zip, extract the zip to the same file. Go to wordpress control panel, themees, activate it, see if it works.

    As this is a commercial Theme, you will need to consult the support offerings of ThemeForest, for any Theme-specific support (which includes installation issues).

    That would be your best bet.
