Hello Steven , and thanks for your question.

If you haven't already, it might be helpful to review our guide on how to install a new theme in Prestashop 1.5.

It looks like one of your themes seems to be nested already in the themes directory like so:


So it looks like it wasn't extracted properly, per the instructions at:


This install file also mentions that this particular theme is for PrestaShop 1.2.5, so it very well might not be compatible with PrestaShop 1.5 which I believe should be packaged with a Config.xml file that this theme appears to be missing.

You might wish to contact the theme developer directly to see if there is an updated version that you can use, or find a valid PrestaShop 1.5 theme to use instead.

Please let us know if you have any other questions at all.
