My WordPress Theme Gives a Missing style.css Error

If you are getting the missing style.css error when trying to install a Shape 5 Theme, you are most likely using the wrong download.

Shape 5 Wordpress Themes have 2 downloads available:

- One download is the Theme by itself - That's the one to install through WP Admin.

- The other Download is the Site Shaper.
- - A Site Shaper is a full WordPress installation with sample data, not something you can install through the admin

The standalone Theme downloads will always have the style.css file and anything else needed to install and activate the theme. The missing style.css error means that you are trying to install the Shaper instead of the Theme.

Looking for the largest variety in template designs? Look no more. Never buy 1 theme again. Signups start at just $89 for access to all of our themes.
