    I've downloaded 2 new themes. Blocked-10 and Indexnet-10
    Stylesheet is missing. My the editor says the following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    The style sheet is included in both downloads. Any thoughts about what I could be doing wrong. I've banged my head on the desk a number of times out of fustration.

    Help!

    Are you sure they are themes and not pre-1.5 version styles?
    Where did you find them?

    Check via FTP for twin folder, i.e. sometimes during the upload there are double folders created, like:
    wp-content/themes/indexnet/indexnet <== wrong!

    I got the 2 new themes: Blocked-1.0 and Indexnet-1.0 off of the website http://themes.wordpress.net/

    They indicate 1.0 is that a problem?

    If you got them from that site - they are themes.

    What about my second question/suggestion?

    Just a little confused. What does upload the files :P mean?

    it means use your ftp client to send the files to your web space. You have the directories but there isnt any files inside of them. Thats exactly what that error told you, "Themes must have a stylesheet and a template."

    You havent "uploaded" any files to those directories.

    Opening this in a browser: http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/blocked-10/

    should result in an error once youve uploaded the files.

    the same with this:
    http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/indexnet-10/

    Just like this does:
    http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/classic/

    The error is normal and expected.

    If you have a directory named "www" do NOT upload them to www/wp-content/themes/...

    they go in htdocs/wp-content/themes/etc.. or something similar.

    Ill go get coffee, take the dogs out, make breakfast, lunch and dinner, while I wait for a semblance of a reply.

    I've got a different rather bizarre theme (or display?) related problem. Since upgrading to 2.0.4 (I believe that's when it started), my home page (hosted off-site) is almost entirely in italics, including the side bar. I'm using "Almost Spring" but the problem remains if I change to another theme, and also when I change back. New posts do not appear in italics, and other pages are not italicized (except where I have inserted the ital code). I can't figure this one out. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

    Just FYI, if anyone wants to see the problem I'm talking about, the site URL is http://musiclanguage.net. Thanks in advance.

    You have an <em> tag at the end of your "Di Dio..." post.

    please go start your own thread instead of posting in this one, jgspearl. your problem has nothing to do with whats going on in this thread.

    ---------------------

    lnrock,

    I can already tell you youre not doing it correctly.

    LOOK inside the directory "/wp-content/themes/classic/"

    Thats how you want those other 2 directories to look.

    NOT like this: http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/blocked-10/wp-content-themes-blocked-10/

    --

    Also you do NOT want this: http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/wp-content-themes-city-in-paint-v2/

    You want this: http://africanamericanopinion.com/wp-content/themes/city-in-paint-v2/

    you are not following my guidance.

    Thanks, doodlebee. Boy... now don't I feel stupid. I've been trying to figure that one out for weeks. And now it's solved. I owe you a cup of coffee or a smoothie, your call, whenever you like. :)

    you uploaded blix correctly..

    the other 2 still need to be fixed:

    home/african8/public_html/wp-content/theme name here/

    files go inside.. not inside those long named sub directories.
