    Hi Calum

    Hope you are doing good today.

    I check this theme on my site after I downloaded from your server. I get same error on my side.
    I check also debug.log from both sites (your and my). Error says clearly that this theme use old code which is does not support by new php versions:
    PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function mysql_escape_string()
    I downgrade php version to 5.6 on my site and theme was activated correct and works fine.

    Solution for this could be downgrade php version to 5.6 on your host side for this site or contact with theme author to upgrade this theme to work with new php versions. But this could be no easy because their site does not work: and last tweet is from 2012:

    Alternative solution could be to find theme which have any support on market.

    Hope this help :slight_smile:

    Kind Regards,
