    Hi there

    trying to use the Scrappy theme but can't find it in the Admin Panel themes section?

    Nor can I see the "Install" button on the themes page.

    All help appreciated.

    :(

    Is your website located on WordPress.com, by chance?

    Or maybe your site is part of a WordPress multisite network, in which case the theme may need to be activated in the Network Admin (will only work if you're a Site Administrator) before it will appear under Appearance -> Themes.

    No worries :)

    That explains it; .com and .org are different. Scrappy is currently only available to users who run WordPress on a separate host, not WordPress.com. A good explanation can be found here:

    :( it's the perfect theme for me and the only one I want. LOL

    Guess I'll have to get my web server up and running again.

    Thanks.

    :)
