    I recommend you contact the theme’s vendor.

    Thanks, I did. Hopefully, somebody will help me. Just in case somebody else has had a similar problem and sovled it, please let me know! Thanks.

    Re-upload an unpacked, copy of the theme’s folder to wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.



    How do you use the file management application of your host? Sorry I am new. Thanks for your help.

    Have you contacted your hosting provider?



    I just did, but they might not reply until Monday. I really have no idea how to upload the theme to the FTP.



    Do you have an FTP password, etc.? Only your host can give you that information – so without it, there’s really nothing anyone here can do to help.
