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 want to create a form where a visitor can submit content/post from the front end. I did something very similar some years back using wp-types, CRED form with pagelines DMS. When i try to set this up in Platform 5, the CRED form generates but doesn't show. I get a blank page. In the browser's console window, i get the error: Uncaught Error: You cannot apply bindings multiple times to the same element.
      When i deactivate the PL plugin and change the theme, the form appears.
      I'm using Wordpress 4.8.2 and PL 5.1.7
      Thanks.

      Hi, I'm using a series of Loops sections on our PL5 site (insights.adaptiva.com), and on one section, I'd ideally like the loops to link to external URLs that are defined in the post in WordPress. Is that possible?

      Hi,
      In Divi (elegant theme), there is a fantastic module for aweber webform.
      Do you plan to build one for pagelines ?
