[resolved] After update to v3.1.2 no install theme tab (3 posts)

    I updated automatically my WP blog to v3.1.2 today & have found I no longer have an install theme tab for adding new themes.
    I tried adding a theme to wp-content>theme in my hostgator files but this is not showing in the available themes list.
    Help & advice appreciated
    (My blog uses multisite feature -legacy from WPMU)

    I rechecked my blog and looked at Network Admin page & found the theme I had added to Hostgator in a list of installed themes. I also noticed at that page at the top was a button to 'Add New' (theme). From this page I had to activate the theme. After doing this the new theme showed up in my list of available themes on my blog dashboard>Appearance>Themes and I was able to install it.

    So this work around works & has solved the immediate problem (though why the 'Install' tab has been removed from Theme page in this new version is beyond me & seems unhelpful-but at least there is a way to get around this-although this seems more complex & time consuming & less simple).

    I hope my experience may help anyone else who finds their 'Install' tab missing.
