When attempting to install alley business toolkit, you encountered an error message stating, “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”
Why this error? Why can’t you install Home Services Theme?
The error occurred because the downloaded zip file is not a theme file but rather a plugin file.
Theme installation process expects a theme file with the appropriate structure and components, including the essential style.css stylesheet. However, in this case, the downloaded file does not meet those requirements as it is intended for plugin installation rather than theme installation.
To resolve this issue, all you need to do is upload the downloaded .zip file of Alley Business Toolkit to Upload Plugin instead of Upload Theme.
