I tried to install the Spirit theme but it does not work.

I tried to install the Spirit theme but it does not work. I receive the following message:

Broken Themes

The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

Name Description
Spirit The parent theme is missing. Please install the "upfront" parent theme.

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    The "Spirit" theme isn't a standalone theme, instead it's a child of our Upfront theme so Upfront is required to make it work. Having said that, please deactivate and remove the "Spirit" theme from your WordPress by going to

    "Appearance" -> "Themes" page and switching to another theme.

    After that, access your server via FTP and delete the "/uf-spirit" folder form "/wp-content/themes".

    Next, please go in your dashboard to

    "WPMU DEV" -> "Themes" page

    in in the search box ("Instant Search", top-right of the screen) type "Spirit". This should bring up the "Spirit" theme. Click "Install" and then "Activate" and it should install our "Spirit" theme along with its Upfront parent theme.

    If you don't have "WPMU DEV Dashboard" plugin installed, please install it. You can find it here:

    I hope this helps!
