    How are you uploading these themes? Manually? You seem to be missing critical theme files.

    Did you edit the theme in any way when you had it installed?

    I downloaded it from wordpress.It was pretty straight forward – “download theme” Then “install”..
    I was told to delete it as was having a problem with header photo and I changed some of the theme settings. Now I can’t reinstall it… i am given an option to update the theme and thats all. I have oxygen in a zip file but I am not given an option to even use the zip file.
    Any idea how to get oxygen back on my site…?

    Start by deleting the wp-content/themes/oxygen folder using FTP. Then upload the theme via Appearance -> Themes.

    o.k. thanks for your help.. I don’t really understand what that is… Very new to this. Thought it would be more user friendly.. Can you tell me what an FTP is and where.. Is it something to do with the hosting company?

    You can ask your hosting providers for help with this. It means “File transfer protocol”.

    o.k. Thank you!

    Before deleting a theme, make sure it’s not the one activated. Temporary switch to other theme first.

    Activate, Deactivate and Deleting theme could be done directly via WP dashboard.

    Uploading ( install ) theme, could be done directly too.

    And if that theme is hosted at repository, the process is easier, just search and click install and it will auto download theme into your WP.

    Using FTP is more direct, but requires more carefulness.
