Missing style.css file in Platform 5 theme zip file

Recommended Posts

jamhead

Thought I'd check out Platform 5 today, but after downloading the zip file, and trying to add it as a theme to a freshly installed WordPress site, WordPress reports that "The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.". I've checked in the zip file, and sure enough, there is no style.css file.

Go on then, what am I doing wrong? I must be doing something stupid, or missing something really obvious.:lolu:

I await your suggestions.

Did you start by installing the plugin? We recommend that than simply installing the framework from the extend engine.

Thanks for replying so quickly!

No, I didn't install a plugin, just added the zip file as a new theme from my WordPress dashboard.

BTW, when you click on the "View Installation Instructions" button on the Platform 5 download page, you just get a video about Steve Jobs. Tried this on several browsers, & get the same results.

thats because we are keeping the actual promo video unreleased until it formally launches ;)

 

The theme you installed is likely a very old one, not PL5...

It's what I downloaded today from pagelines.com/platform then clicking on the "Download Plugin" button, as per the instructions on the Pagelines User Group video.

Files contained within the zip file were created on 4th Feb @ 6.34pm.

      Hello. I have a big problem, platform 5, the save changes button does not work. All the time, "spins" and can not save modifications. There was information about the account refresh or re-login (due to the token), everything has been done, still saving does not work properly. Help.
      I got an answer on facebook that you have to put the site from scratch, I have a dozen or so - it's some tragedy. So ask for help !!!
      Regards, Kedark

      Here's what I see when I try to download Platform 5:

       
      Is Platform 5 still being supported?  Most of the comments in this forum look a year old or older.
