[resolved] theme not readable - other ideas besides premissions? (5 posts)

    Hello.

    I know there are a ton of posts about Themes being broken and the error of "file not readable." I came across this same problem. I downloaded a popular theme from this site and unzipped in and put the folder into my wp-content/themes folder. However, when I type in the direct path into the URL the style sheet shows up. So I know the files are there. People have mentioned it might be a permissions issue but the folder is read, write and execute.

    Any other suggestions?!

    Thanks.

    Why are you typing in the direct url to the theme folder?

    I did that more as a test to see if the file was readable and acutally present.

    So is the theme not showing up in Admin/Appearance/Themes? Or is it that you can't edit it online?
