Hello,

Following popups are showing after I installed a theme.

Unpacking the package.

Installing the theme.

Theme installed successfully.

Warning: fopen(/home/thomas/public_html/buildingabiz.com/wp-content/themes/WP Theme/style.css) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/thomas/public_html/buildingabiz.com/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4284

Warning: fread(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/thomas/public_html/buildingabiz.com/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4287

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource in /home/thomas/public_html/buildingabiz.com/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4290

I browsed to the Manage, Themes page and there it shows this thing for me.

Broken Themes

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

Name Description
WP Theme Stylesheet is missing.

I have installed an old version of C3 1.0.3 by ThemeFuse and trying to install version 1.0.16. Here is the way I installed it;

Opened C3 developer, zipped WP theme, went to WP admin and to Install Themes place and uploaded the zip file.

Is there any fault in that process?

I installed my other working themes according to that process.

Please give a solution to fix it.

Thanks a lot.

Hi David,

The possible reason for the error could be that the contents of the zipped file are unacceptable to WordPress.

You can try the following steps –

  1. Unzip the contents of the zip file you created.
  2. In the unzipped contents, navigate to the folder named ''C3 theme", zip this ''C3 theme" folder.
  3. Upload the new zippped file into WordPress, this should work.

Hope that helped.
