Support » Installing WordPress » Only Default theme when installed in Root

  • Resolved ensamvals


    I had a perfect wordpress site going on when installed on but then I figured I wanted it directly in the root folder and made a clean install there. Now I find that wordpress works, but only with the Default theme. When I try using my own theme it shows up, but with out any formatting, just text.

    To get around the problem I tried to keep wordpress in the wordpress folder and followed the instructions from the wp-site on how to show it through only typing the root name in the browser. All I got then was a white screen.

    If you have followed the instructions here:
    that will NOT work with two installations. Decide which one do you want to keep and delete the other one.



    I’ve only had one installation at a time… now I find that all themes are working just fine, except the one I want and that worked before…
