Manage Themes - 3.2 new install - Child theme not showing (3 posts)

    Hello, I've installed a fresh WP 3.2 on a new domain through hostgator CP. I have other sites I've upgraded to 3.2 that use child themes without a hitch. I've a setup basic twentyten child theme for this site as well, exactly like I've done with the other sites which still work after the upgrade. With this new site, the child theme does not show up in Manage themes. I am using the WP child theme instructions as I've always done.


    Has something changed, any suggestions?

    WordPress 3.2 doesn't include Twenty Ten, so child themes of Twenty Ten aren't going to work.

    The reason they work on your other WP installs is because you upgraded those to 3.2, so the Twenty Ten theme was still there from previous versions. But if you do a fresh install of 3.2, there won't be a Twenty Ten. The new default theme is Twenty Eleven.

    If you want to use Twenty Ten child themes with your fresh 3.2 install, just install Twenty Ten manually: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/twentyten
