    I want to add the new Manifest theme to my website ClassOnTap.com However, when I click the "activate" button on the Manifest theme website and go to "choose a site", there are no options below. I am logged in wordpress and have a blog(classontap) but I cant get this theme activated.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    The theme you link to is on wordpress.COM

    Your website uses wordpress.ORG

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/
    Shows the difference

    You can't activate a .com theme to a .org site. You need to find a theme to download and install!

    This thread contains a link to the .svn repo for the .COM manifest theme - you could try to download it and install it to your site - I'm not 100% it would work... but I would think it should

    How exactly do you download the file? I clicked on the https://wpcom-themes.svn.automattic.com/manifest/ link but could not download anything.

    Thanks for your help

    It's not really something I can explain easily (I just fumbled through using it, I am no expert by a long shot).... you would need an svn client - I was able to figure out tortoisesvn pretty handily

    You basically install it, point it to the server URL, and it works kind of like windows explorer, you check out the theme using it and that gets you the files
