    I am trying to install the Branford Magazine theme on my wordpress site. The instructions from wordpress on how to install a theme are clear:

    You can download Themes directly to your blog by using the Add New Themes option in the Appearance sub-menu.

    Log in to the WordPress Administration Panels.
    Select the Appearance panel, then Themes.
    Select Install Themes.
    Use the sub-menu or the Search or Filter options to locate a Theme you would like to use.
    Click on the Preview link to preview the Theme or the Install link to upload the Theme to your blog.
    Use the Upload link in the top sub-menu to upload a zipped copy of a Theme that you have previously downloaded to your machine.

    HOWEVER:
    Once I select the Appearance panel, and then the Themes panel, I do not get the option of Install Themes. I only get the MANAGE THEMES Window.

    What should I do now?

    Thank you.

    @nosnorad,
    On the same screen you're on, there is a dimmed tab on top saying Install themes, just click that and it will take you to the Place you want.
