Common Issues while uploading a theme
1. Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing
While uploading the theme via WordPress, if you are getting an error that reads Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing,
This error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly.
Please ensure that you upload the correct file which is ‘tote.zip’.
This article from Envato explains about this common issue.
2. Are you sure you want to do this? – ERROR
While uploading the theme via WordPress, if the upload is unsuccessful with the error message ‘Are you sure you want to do this? Try Again’
it is likely that file upload limit is less than the theme’s file size. Kindly increase your file upload limit to around 10 MB, alternatively
upload the theme via FTP and install it.
