[Resolved] Theme Install Failed

  • I am using the latest versions of WordPress and all my plugins are updated too Last checked on February 3, 2013 at 3:34 pm.
    and getting this error message

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    although I checked and the file exists.

    Any reason that it would not find it?
    Thank you for your help!

  • My mistake!

    I failed to notice that the plugin had to be manually installed.
    So I resolved the issue by following the installation instruction.

    Sorry. Thanks!

    Should not have to be manually installed. It a plugin and not a theme 🙂

    It worked only when I uploaded manually via ftp in the directory.
    I would prefer that it works automatically from within the CMS though, because I would have installed it in other websites. Do you know why it did not work automatically? Could it be something at my end?

    How are you generating the error?

    This is how install it from WordPress http://screencast.com/t/x07zWrw2jvGE

    I had downloaded the .zip file on my desktop and then gone via the upload.

    Ok if you do that upload it under plugins not themes.

    Looks like I need to sleep more! I was surely confused!
    Thank you so much for your kind help, I really appreciate it.
