Can't Get Any Themes to Work...Help! (7 posts)

    Hi...I follow the directions to the "T" and can't get any themes to work.

    I have installed as instructed...and WordPress works fine but when I use a theme, like Mandigo, the style loads but the header image doesn't. I am uploading via FTP to my site under the WP Content>Themes>Mandigo...and get the style format but no images.

    What's interesting is EVERY theme I download, the headers never show up.

    Anyone experience this or have a suggestion???

    Thanks very much in advance!

    I don't see your error - the default theme is displayed. Most likely you are trying to use a theme that is not compatible with WP 2.1.x.

    Well, you ask back your money... or you can try to fix it:
    open the sidebar.php (hopefully there is something like that) and check for the Template Tags that were depracted in 2.1., and replace them with the new ones.

    I think that the function with the probleme is "Wp_get_archive", but when I search in "tags editors" I found that its deprecated, and I could'nt find a new code...

    here is my "sidebar code"

    <div class="right_cell">
    <div class="search">
    					<div style="padding: 18 0 0 20">
    					<img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/bull.gif" align="absmiddle">&nbsp;Search
    					<form method="get" id="searchform" action="<?php bloginfo('home'); ?>/">
    						<input type="text" style="width:130px"  name="s" id="s" value="<?php echo wp_specialchars($s, 1); ?>">&nbsp;<input type="image" src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/subm.gif"	style="border:0; background:none" value="submit" align="absmiddle">
    					</form>
    </div>
    
    				</div>
    				<div class="right_header">
    				Categories
    				</div>
    				<div class="right_content">

    				</div>
    				<br>
    
    				<div class="right_content">
    				<?php
     $link_cats = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT cat_id, cat_name FROM $wpdb->linkcategories");
     foreach ($link_cats as $link_cat) {
     ?>
    
      <div class="right_header"><?php echo $link_cat->cat_name; ?></div>
