    Try loading the theme through your file manager in your hosting

    You cannot install a .rar file via wordpress theme install.

    you are installing a file "elegant.rar" which is not accpetable by wordpress

    -extract the file
    -archive it into a .zip format then try re-installing,

    make sure the theme folder structure is correct, you might install a theme that isn't on their based directory or even include a PSD file

    it should be

    theme-name/style.css or theme-name/index.php or theme-name/functions.php

    where "theme-name" is the based theme folder.

    I have been a wordpress developer for 5 years, and i encountered hundreds of issues like this, some of my clients even install the theme via FTP that includes huge PSD files..lol

    anyway, I think this is my second post, been a member on this forum for I think 2 years, only visit to download and search some crack or free software.

    I might quit being a developer soon and start doing IM :)

    AFAIK, Wordpress can only install from zip file (and not from rar file). But you can unrar that file to your PC, and then upload the entire un-rar'ed folder to the wordpress > wp-content > themes folder. It should work as good as installing the theme from a zip file.

    Do not upload the entire zip file of everything.
    - Extract the zip file
    - You need to go in to the folder and find the theme folder
    - Zip that up
    - Upload

    I think you are using a premium theme of Elegent and you have copied from somewhere without style.CSS file, this file is not included inside your .rar or zip file, so please contact elegent themes or search for a new torrent :p

    Can you upload the file to Mediafire, for example, and then give me/us a link to it so that I/we can try solving that mystery?

    Or give us a link if that theme is already available for download?
