[resolved] theme uploaded but not showing (11 posts)

    I unzipped a couple of themes. uploaded the theme folders to wp-content/themes (maxeamusradioexito.com).

    i can see the folders sitting there with the Default and Classic folders. there are indexPHP and styleCSS files in each folder

    but when i try to switch themes in the admin/presentation area all i see are default and classic as my options.

    I cleared my cache, that didn't solve it.

    I will really appreciate any help you can offer.

    thank you

    Strange. Do you mean index.php and style.css? Have you looked inside these uploaded theme folders to make sure all files were copied?

    What version WP?

    Do you upload every theme in its own directory?
    Like wp-content/themes/mynewtheme/ ?
    Also, sometimes, during the unzip/upload some themes get into a double folder mytheme/mytheme...

    my directory looks like so:
    wp-content/themes/mynewtheme/index.php...style.css...etcetc
    wp-content/plugins/podpress/file...file...etc

    the folders did unzip as mynewtheme/mynewtheme/files
    but i put the file-containing folder on the server....

    i dont know if that is clear, but in a nutshell, yes all the folders look right.

    i just shot an email to the server admin...i am thinking he may have set everything up in a special hidden folder or a non-local folder not knowing i needed to tweak it?....(When he set up a mySQL DB he emailed me back and had installed WP himself)

    when i log in via ftp there is no "wp" folder, and my blog is set up at maxeamusradio.com/wp

    I am uploading themes and plugins directly to maxeamusradio.com/wp-content
    in my case should there be an actual "wp" folder in my root dir?...or does /wp auto read the PHP code from wp-content folder???

    than ks for the help thus far...i do appreciate it!

    That's strange, because you should upload everything into the root/wp/wp-content/themes or /plugins

    Who is your host? *the next logical question)

    my host is a buddy of mine who is taking a nap at the moment..ha...

    i am almost positive we found the problem...i think he must have the /wp folder non-local or hidden...perhaps he already had a DB set up somewhere else and set up wp there and has a script pointing there from a "virtual folder"...if that makes sense?? as you can see I am not very techy! just a newbie pushing buttons....ha

    i will post with new info once i talk to him...

    thanks

    .i think he must have the /wp folder non-local or hidden

    this indeed was the problem.
