    Hi MapofTassie.,
    WordPress theme must need index.php and style.css in base folder. Please check its wordpress theme.



    Thanks Rajan, how do I do that? Is it contained within the .zip compressed file? Do I need to go back to the theme developer?

    There’s no folder in the .zip theme folder (once unzipped) that looks relevant. Folders are:


    OR, is it something in wordpress that needs installing before I load the theme .zip file?

    Thank you for your help!

    That’s a commercial product and those are not supported in these forums. You need to contact the vendor that you purchased that theme from.


    When you made that purchase then you should have also received installation instructions.



    ok, thanks Jan, sorry didn’t realise. Have contacted etheme.

    You’re good, I just didn’t want you to spend too much time asking here when the install authors instructions might get you working sooner . 😉
