  • First check there isnt another subfolder in your new theme – sometimes when you manually extract an item it can go themename > themename > themefiles instead of themename>themefiles.

    If you downloaded one throught wordpress, uninstall the theme and try again.

    I downloaded from other sites. I did not see the existence of my theme, so there’s no way to uninstall it the fact that it hasn’t been installed it successfully previously.

    What I uploaded was a zip folder, is that alright? Inside that zip, it has a single folder all wrapped in those little bits with its theme name, then inside that folder, it has all those php files and several folders regarding the css, admin, licence…etc.

    No – unpack the archive and upload just the theme’s folder to wp-content/themes.

    The theme’s folder which includes all those php files? But it won’t let me to upload folder format?

    oh wait I think I had uploaded the folder but I do not know how I did that…anyway do I just export it to theme directory?

    Uploaded it in folder format here: public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes
    Going back to wordpress.com dashboard>appearence>theme, I couldn’t see my theme??

    You have a wordpress.com site?

    Yes, I had a wordpress.com site before and changed it to a .com site with mapping without the word wordpress, so it becomes a self hosted site.

    No – it doesn’t become self-hosted. It’s still hosted at wordpress.com which means that you cannot upload any themes.

    But I have bluehost, and that means it becomes self hosted.

    And I did that through cPanel, is that right? And how can I see my theme, I could not see any.

    the site linked with your user name here in the forum is definitively a WordPress.com hosted site;

    if you are referring to a different site, please post a link.
    have you installed the wordpress.org files to your bluehost server and set-up the site?
    can you acccess the default themes Twenty Ten and Twenty Eleven?



    I made a one click easy installation with Blue Host, but I do not know the rest of how it works.

    My site: http://pose-central.com/

    Can I reach to a wordpress.org dashboard through Blue Host since wordpress.com’s dashboard aren’t working to me with dozen times of testings.

    I can see those folders Twenty…etc. in my theme directory through cpanel, though still couldn’t make mine works.

    How can I access WordPress.ORG dashboard>appearance>theme through blue host? I think this is the reason I couldn’t see it because I was in .COM.
