Getting "Error: missing style.css stylesheet" when uploading theme
I’m attempting to upload a recently purchased theme to my WordPress.org site but keep receiving the same error message. I am not sure what to do to resolve this as I am new to WordPress.
The theme I am trying to upload is called Solid WP – Corpotate/Business WordPress Theme and can be found here: http://themeforest.net/item/solid-wp-corporate-business-wordpress-theme/308585?WT.ac=search_thumb&WT.seg_1=search_thumb&WT.z_author=bitpub
When I downloaded the theme, it appeared in my Downloads folder in a folder file, not a zip file. So I right clicked and compressed the file into a zip file. When I upload the file to wordpress, I receive this message:
“Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme install failed.”
I do not know what to do resolve this and am hoping someone here may be able to discern between simple newbie error and complicated error and/or provide a step to take to try and resolve this problem.
Also, I do not know what version of WordPress I am using, but I signed up in the last month so I assume this means I am using the latest version.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice!
