theme is missing the style.css stylesheet (2 posts)

    I'm a complete newbie to this. To start off, I'm an audio engineer, not a web designer, so I'm a bit in over my head.

    To make it short, I'm attempting to upload a theme from a site called freewebsitethemes.com Now, when I unzip the .zip file the only folders that appear are called "fonts" "css" and "images". I'm saying this because in previous posts I've seen people advise others to find the "themes" folder and zip that on it's own, but the .zip file I received for this specific theme template doesn't have any sort of "themes" folder. I'm pretty much at my wits end.

    I've contacted the designer and haven't received a response yet. The only other contents within the templates unzipped folder are all html files that read "about" "blog" "index" and "shows" and they all bring me to the same example of the same page for the template. And then the only other file is a photoshop document.

    I'm running on OSX Version 10.8.3

    I would appreciate ANYONE'S assistance. I am absolutely in love with the theme, but I've yet to find a way to make it work.

    I tried the whole FTP thing, but without a "themes" folder it's useless. PLEASE. HELP!!

    We really do not recommend using themes from unverified sources - here's why:

    And if the theme is full of .html files - it sounds like it's not a WordPress theme anyway.
