No "install themes" tab on wordpress.org blog

  • I performed a 1-click install of WordPress into a Dreamhost server.

    i would like to add a premium theme to my blog, but don’t see the “install themes” tab that makes it nice and easy.

    Should I have done a non 1-click install of WordPress? Am I not fully installed? Any help you can give me would be AWESOME!

    Try looking in Appearance -> Themes.

    Correct, that is where the tab should be…but it isn’t!

    Try re-installing WordPress manually.

    Same thing has happened to me today.
    My blog has no theme install tab after updating to WP 3.1.2

    Why is this? Do I have to reinstall manually (& make sure I have a backup)? What a nuisance!

    I just uploaded WP 3.1.2 and I am having the same issues. I thought I was going crazy. Anyone figure out a fix for this?


    My issue was because I run WordPress multisite I have to install themes via Network Admin interface.

    So I logged on to Network Admin dashboard (login link on top right of theme admin)& went to Themes> add new> & checked it was activated & then on returning to my blog I went to admin dashboard> Appearance> Themes & the theme was available to activate on site.
    This is a bit of a performance but not too much inconvenenience & I enjoy WP multisite (I have run it ever since WPMU days!).
    I hope that helps? Goodluck…

    Hey Richard,

    Thanks for the response, but after researching I think my issues is I have a wp.org site uploaded to my domain and I need a wp.com site and have it mapped to my domain to be able to use premium sites.

    I dont have install themes tab and am using .org what should i do.
