    When I download a theme, then go to Presentation, it tells me that the stylesheet is missing. Huh? I thought the stylesheet would be a part of the theme file that I downloaded! HELP! 🙁

  • Style sheet is missing perhaps because:

    1) when you unzipped your theme folder on your desktop, it automatically creates another folder inside the first = 2 folders.

    2) when you FTP this theme to your wp-content/themes folder the style sheet cannot be referenced thru two folders.

    Suggestion: delete your theme from your wp-content/themes and re-FTP taking care to check, first, inside the theme folder on your desktop that there’s only one yellow folder.

    ie: when you click on it and the theme folder opens, can you immediately see all the files and stylesheet?

    Or do you have to click open another yellow folder before that occurs?

    If you have to double click your way thru to the files, you have ONE FOLDER too many. Delete one, then FTP.

    Refresh your dashboard/Presentation/themes

    It should work

    Are you uploading the compressed (ie ZIP/RAR/GZ) file to the directory. If you are, you do need to decompress the files and upload each theme within its own file under the themes directory.

    You’ll have to explain yourself more if the above is not what you are in need of.

    Good luck,

    Everything worked perfectly! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!


    Can you explain what you did to achieve everything worked perfectly?

    Your input will help someone else trying to get their theme to function.
