Admin Shows Wrong Theme Active (13 posts)

    HI
    Apologies if this has arisen before, but I can't think of any keywords that don't return thousands of hits under search.

    My site is http://www.therazor.org

    It's a 3 col site that I want to change the theme on.

    Under the Admin - Presentation - Available Themes, whichever theme I select doesn't have any effect: the original stays.

    Do I have to manually copy the index.php from the theme in the theme directory to the root?
    Thanks,
    Scott K.

    In header.php, there are these lines:
    <style type="text/css" media="screen">
    @import url( <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?> );
    </style>

    Does yours say the same ?

    Viewing the source I see this:
    <style type="text/css" media="screen">
    @import url( http://www.therazor.org/wp-content/themes/3col/style.css );
    </style>

    Don't view source.... open the header.php file of the theme.... but that seems to look right... 3col is the one you want isn't it? Or is it the old one you don't want? (you never said what theme you are moving from or to.)

    I am trying to use the Theme Switcher under admin to switch to a different theme I have installed. 3Col is the current theme that I want to get away from.

    Strange - Have yoou checked that the theme you are trying to switch to are complete? The minimum theme should have a CSS file style.css with a well defined header:
    /*
    Theme Name: Rose
    Theme URI: the-theme's-homepage
    Description: a-brief-description
    Author: your-name
    Author URI: your-URI
    Template: use-this-to-define-a-parent-theme--optional
    Version: a-number--optional
    .
    General comments/License Statement if any.
    .
    */
    This is for the Rose theme
    See: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development

    Do I have to manually copy the index.php from the theme in the theme directory to the root?

    No! Every theme should reside in its own directory under
    <yourblog>\wp-content\themes\rose

    More suggestions may be required :-)

    After upgrading to Wp 2.0, my themes seem to be one click behind. As an example, if I have the default theme when I first go to my site, and then click the theme drop down list to change my theme, it seems that it is one theme behind. If I click Classic, nothing happens. If I then click on Jakarta, the Classic theme is active.

    Any ideas? Hopefully I have explained myself clearly?

    Yours sounds like a browser issue. Have you tried viewing the site from another PC or using another browser?

    As for me, the 3Col is showing as Broken Theme: Template is missing.

    Which template and where would that be controlled? The header of the style sheet seems fine:
    /*

    Dots - A WordPress CSS Template

    Based on: Bloggia 3-Column Template by Alex King (http://www.bloggia.com/styles/bloggia_themer/)

    @fbonani:
    You are using the old themeswitcher pluging, use the new and it will be solved I think!

    CarolineG,

    Thanks for your post and I have gone to the link, but I guess I'm not smart enough to figure it out. Do I copy the php file and if so where do I place it? Any help would be appreciated.

    You should replace the old theme-switcher.php file with the new one. It should be in your plugin directory in the wp-content folder! And that will make it work like it should again.

    Yes it does. Thanks for the quick response. I feel much better now, it appears things are back to normal.
