Hello…VERY new to Wordpress and I just tried installing (via FTP) the two templates I bought. One went through fine, but the Elements Theme did not. It says the parent theme is missing.

What do I do?
Thanks

Hi, it sounds like you either uploaded the wrong folder(s) or have installed the entire package.

You should upload only the contents of element.zip and element-child.zip then activate element-child.

Does this clarify?

I apologize for the confusion. I realize this may be a little technical for some, but once you’re installed I’m sure things will make much more sense to you.
