    Hi Laetitia,

    Thanks for writing and thank you for your purchase.

    A common issue that can occur with users new to installing WordPress themes is a “Broken theme and/or stylesheets missing” error message being displayed when trying to upload or activate the theme. This error message does not mean that the theme you have purchased is broken, it simply means it has been uploaded incorrectly. Luckily, there is a very easy fix.

    That was it indeed, sorry!
    Thanks for your fast and efficient follow up!

    My pleasure 🙂

    Have a nice day,
