Support » Fixing WordPress » GoDaddy FTP problems: WP plugins, themes etc not working

  • Resolved anga

    I installed the latest WP.org download into my GoDaddy.com server. I tried to upload a theme and a few different plug ins to the content folder, and then from there to their respective folders (like putting the theme I downloaded into the themes folder). I don’t understand why they aren’t showing up. The main problem is that I want to replace the header with my own image. I created one and renamed it kubrickheader.jpg and uploaded it to the images folder within the default theme, doesn’t work.

    Other problems. I’m assuming WordPress.com themes don’t work with wordpress.org, right? I WAS using wordpress.com with the Contempt theme, and then discovered after 10 posts that wordpress.org existed. I figured my own http://www.domainname.com/blog was a better URL, I was already paying for hosting, and I was only 10 posts deep on wordpress.com, so why not make the switch? But getting my header image that I had on wordpress.com, resizing it to the wp.org default header image size and it still not showing up is driving me insane.

    Check with your ftp program that the files are actually there, and also make sure that they aren’t in double nested folders (your-theme/your-theme/).

    Sometimes you need to refresh the browser or empty the browser cache to see site changes.

    I figured it out. I was uploading all of my WP files (wp-content, themes, etc.) to the GoDaddy FTP site. But the WordPress files were actually in a folder called “Blog”, from when I used the auto WordPress install from GoDaddy Applications. I discovered this by going to the file manager, rather than the FTP client. Thought I would share in case this helps anyone else. So we can close this one now.
