    Hi

    Oops I posted a help but then discovered the answer. I don't know how to delete a request so I edited the post to take the question out.

    Sorry!

    The information on Codex is for version 1.5+ ONLY. I guess that all the documentation there wasn't specific enough, so I edited the page a bit so others won't be confused in the future.

    You are using version 1.2.2, and there is no Presentation section in the admin panel.

    Thanks for the help - as you can see I discovered this. I have downloaded a nightly build. I presume this is 1.5+. Is there a more stable version than a nightly build?

    Thanks

    Ok, I assume you were using 1.2.2 and the wiki refers to themes which is referring to the beta 1.5 so ignore the themes. And you're right it is past 5am, but messing around with WP does that to you.

    Have you tried the search function on the site?

    This thread may be of service:

    Well Cregy with regards to nightly builds, they're all beta and they are as is, and used at your own risk. You may find you run into more problems, just as I have but I'm persevering. Good luck

  5. The presentation panel is a feature only available in WP v1.5gamma. More than likely, the theme you were trying to upload was for v1.5gamma only. For v1.2.x compatible themes, see here: http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=20279

    Edit: There are no version of v1.5gamma that are more stable than Nightly Builds. The v1.5gamma builds are Nightly Builds. v1.5gamma builds are only recommended for those who have a good amount of PHP and MySQL experience.

    Hi

    How much experience are we talking about please? Is installation similar to a standard WP install and then hacking of mods to get it going? Why would I need php/mysql experience? I have some fair bit now!

  8. You would need the experience because these are unstable Nightly Builds (IOW, still under development). In order to have the best system, you'll pretty much have to upgrade each day. Also, any build may have the potential for destroying your entire site, so you'll have to know how to make emergency changes to the code, that's where the PHP and MySQL experience comes in. Also, the developers would prefer that you use your PHP and MySQL experience to submit bugs and possible new features, as these are still under development.

    P.S. Can't wait to use the upgrade - it does sound good - the original is brilliant!
