Theme uploading but not downloading on computer (2 posts)

    I'm trying to install a new theme template to my WordPress. It has uploaded correctly on my blog, but did not download into the WordPress files on my computer so I cannot edit anything on the template. Did I do something incorrectly? Why is it not downloading and how can I get it to do so?

    To get the process right:

    You've downloaded a theme from somewhere, unzipped it locally, and then uploaded the complete theme directory to [webroot]/wp-content/themes/, right?

    After that you've changed the permissions (or maybe did that in one go with your ftp client) on the entire theme directory and its files you've just uploaded and started editing from the admin panel.

    Or did you do something different in this list?


    edit: or of course use the upload link in the admin panel: didn't even know it existed :-S
