Support » Themes and Templates » Problem with wp-admin/

  • I have a question; I’ve installed WordPress for a website I help maintain. And when I login to the admin page, then go to the Presentation tab, and the Themes subtab, I see the following text:

    Current Theme

    All of this theme’s files are located in .
    Available Themes
    Get More Themes

    (This despite the fact that there are three themes directories in the wp-admin/themes directory on my website.)

    What’s more, when I click on the Theme Editor tag, I get a blank white page and the following error message:

    “The requested theme does not exist.”

    Can anyone offer any assistance as to (1) making sure the themes appear on the Themes tab, and (2) having the theme-editor.php page work?

  • Just make sure theme folders are CHMOD 755 and files are 666.

    Is there any theme selected as active?
    And BTW, on a normal server you will never need to chmod the theme files to 666 – which is totally unsafe!

    I agree – all mine are 644. For some reason this doesn’t work for everyone.

    That’s why I said on a “normal” server 🙂

    If you’re using Windows server make sure the user account for the Web service has read access to the wp-content/themes directory and its subdirectories. I’m not sure if it needs execute access, but if read alone won’t work then add execute.

    Unfortunately, the permissions are already all set to either 755 (for directories) or 644 (for files). Changing them to 775 or 664 / 666 respectively doesn’t seem to improve the situation.

    Other suggestions?

    It works now.

    I don’t know why, but it seems to work after two days of not working. Strange.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone for their help and feedback….
