I have a current wordpress site so i didnt want to use the site shaper to upload or i'd lose all my stuff.
I ftp'd the site up instead, added a new theme into my site via the dashboard and the message i get is that the style sheet is missing. I checked the directory i uploaded the whole site to and its there. Does it need to move to another place to be recognised?
I have the big picture theme. I can't access the big picture forum as its not recognising me when i log in as having a current membership.. however my account tells me i have 31 days remaining.
Any help you could give me would be very appreciated.

There are 2 downloads - one is the shaper, which is a full WP install, and the other is the theme by itself, which can be installed through WP admin.  The error you are getting indicates that you are trying to install the shaper file when you should be installing the standalone theme.

If you also want to install all the plugins included in the shaper, you can just extract the wp-content folder from the shaper .zip file, and upload that to your site through FTP.  Doing it that way will give you everything that is included in the shaper, but won't install the demo content.
