Please be informed that you should not upload the whole archive you downloaded from Themeforest, as you will get an error message of “broken stylesheet file”. Instead locate the paperio.zip file only inside the main archive you downloaded.

Note If you are getting error message “are you sure you want to do this?” while installing theme through WordPress admin then please check hosting PHP settings. Paperio theme zip file is around 30mb and some server’s default value for upload_max_filesize to 2mb. To solve this problem you should either increase your maximum upload size to 30mb on your hosting admin panel, or ask your host to do it for you if you do not have the privileges to alter your server PHP settings. This is a very common request and they should be able to help you out. Once the limit is increased, you can re-try the install theme and you’ll be all good to go.
