    I downloaded a premium theme from the link given in this post http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...hemes-collection-updated-retail-versions.html


    But when upload and install this theme I got the following error,
    Installing Theme from uploaded file: themeforest-4519990-enfold-responsive-multipurpose-theme.zip
    Unpacking the package?
    Installing the theme?
    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
    Theme install failed.
    I downloaded this theme
    http://www47.zippyshare.com/v/JyPXYP3F/file.html

    I am not very tech friendly or coder of any form.

    Please provide step by step guide in understanding language.

    You need to extract the archive and upload the theme files zip package. I mean extract the package and then upload the file enfold.zip

    Problem is you are uploading the main download package.

    As the above poster said, when downloading these types of files often a lot of other stuff is added in like lists of resources,contact, license for example. Quick way to check is to double click the zipped folder and you'll see what's in it

    Thanks for ur suggestion . But the problem is that when I extract the archive I get 2 zip files . One is pds zip and other is enfold.zip. But when I try to upload enfold.zip. instead of uploading it extracts into many folders such as image, css, frameworks etc. Thus unable to upload it as a whole folder.When it upload psd.zip it get the error as stated above in my question.

    Wordpress admin panel -> Appearance -> Themes -> Add New -> Upload -> Select enfold.zip -> Active

    The psd file are photoshop images so they will not upload, try to rezip the enfold folder. how are you uploading? Go to your themes section in admin and upload the e.fold.zip file there and not through ftp

    You don't need to upload the psd.zip file. It is including photoshop template such as logo, header..., it's not a theme

    i would not use a theme from zippy share when you are not knowing what you are doing...... i consider that quite risky.
