Before I tell you my problem -- please let me share that I am not a very techy person, so I ask that you please explain any terms that you use, because I probably won't know them. I am learning a lot about how this works. I really appreciate your time. :)
I downloaded WP into my new website and that went fine. Then I wanted a new template, got one and loaded that according to directions -- it said to load it into CPanel in the html-public file under wp-content-themes file. Did that. Extracted the file, saw the file and it was there.
Then the directions said to go to word press and to look under Presentations to see the new template selection -- well it does not appear there. I am completely clueless as to why this is happening. Any suggestions? I thank you so much for your time, look forward to hearing from you at your convenience.
