Divi Stylesheet Is Missing Issue

The screenshot below shows the error information on the page located at Appearance>Themes. Below the grid of installed Themes will be this message: “Broken Themes – the following themes are installed but incomplete.” Below that it will list the Divi theme with the description “stylesheet is missing.”

This certainly is a confusing message to see!

Divi Stylesheet Is Missing Solution

The solution may surprise you, but it truly is the solution needed – reinstall the Divi Theme. In my experience and from what I could find from others, this issue is always resolved by downloading a fresh copy of Divi from your Elegant Themes members area, saving it to your computer, and then uploading it again. The process is very simple and familiar, just like installing a theme for the first time:

  1. Got to Appearance>Themes
  2. Click on Add New
  3. Click Upload
  4. Browse and select the Divi theme .zip file
  5. Click Upload

To learn more about how easy it is to replace the Divi Theme by installing a new file, check our recently tutorial about How To Manually Replace A WordPress Theme Or Plugin File. Don’t worry, replacing the theme file is the same technical process as updating to a new version. It will not change any settings or have any negative impact.
