I have searched for this and can not find a straight answer so i will try.
I installed wordpress through my host using the cpanel method. Everything installed right. Then the theme I downloaded for WP 2.9.2 does not show right. I have tried several themes all the same. No background no header etc. I used the upload zip file to install, transfered through my ftp client. I reinstall wp through instructions given in wp readme. Same thing. My themes are not showing right. Any help would be great as what I am doing wrong or not doing.
