    ANOTHER RELATED TOPIC TO THE LAST POST:

    I have installed a template to ftp://domain/wordpress/wp-content/themes/iridium

    The files are there.

    But when I go in to select it, the WP 1.5 program only shows the default and classic themes. Why does the new iridium theme not show up?

    Thank you

    Just make sure that there's only one iridium subfolder. Inside the iridium folder you should see an images folder and a bunch of files, sometimes unpacking will add in extra folders.

    ... and make sure the folder is readable (assuming apache, 755).

    Wow, you guys are fast!

    I can see the file in my FTP program, but you are right to see if the files can be seen, and they CANNOT. When I try to see the files from typing in the following, it does NOT show the files...

    http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress/wp-content/license.txt

    I find that file at this URL
    http://www.mynewoffice.com/wordpress/license.txt

    So it seems I have to figure out if the files are hidden, or not executable or? And if so why, and what to do next. :)

    Thank you.. Advice?

    Hmm. From those addys you posted, looks like the theme folder's in the root of your wp install. Try deleting the theme folder, and reupload it to the wp-content folder inside your wp root.
