    I have installed two themes. But they do not show in Presentation Sub-Panel.. Any thoughts why they are missing?

    be sure that they aren't in the wrong directory. A lot of times, when you download a zipped theme file, it'll have themename/themename/

    You upload the top one, not realizing that it's actually in one more level.

    That's the first thing I can think of off the top of my head - and just a guess. If you could pass along a link to your site (and the theme name) that would be more helpful.

    That was my first reaction and first mistake. I download to desktop, unzip and then FTP. For one theme I did themenm/themenm. But the other is in OK directory and its not showing on the list..

    Check the file permissions and the directory permissions. I note that many times when the theme is designed and/ or zipped on a Mac, they get marked at 700's. The directory needs to be set to 755 and the files to 644.

    I installed one author's stuff on my WPMu install. Every single theme was like that. Lots of fun. :(

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks. First hint from doodlebee exposed my stupid... I did indeed load theme/theme folders. I reloaded the files into folder theme/ and it works fine.. Good to know about the permissions.

    Always looking for good 3 column themes.. and mature plug- ins that are already plugged into the templates. Good for editors like me who do not know design and read the manual for smallest of problems. All suggestions are welcome..
