Support » Themes and Templates » Theme,uploaded and shows in directory,but not available

  • I can see that I have correctly downloaded the theme into the contect folder, and it appears there with the other themes. But when I go to the “Design” and “Theme” tabs, it is not there with the default themes. Help please?

    Thanks,
    Helene

  • Is it missing any files? Do you see an error at the bottom of the theme page that says there’s been an error?

    Another possibility is that when you unzip a theme it will be inside another folder – you’ll want to upload only the folder that opens directly to the theme files – if it’s a folder inside a folder it most likely won’t show up.

    Good luck!

    I think the problem is that it downloads, but does not extract. The bar that says, ‘extracting’ remains empty, and if I click ‘next’, it says ‘no files to extract’!

    Thanks for giving me a hand,
    Helene

    Make sure you are uploading it properly. See the following for step-by-step directions on properly uploading a theme.

    OK….after the 5th try of apparently doing the same thing, it DID extract.

    There is mo error of any kind, it just doesn’t show up at all on the ‘theme’ page.

    The folder configuration is this:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Helene\Desktop\wordpress-2.7\wordpress\wp-content\themes\sliding-door

    I downloaded the theme to the content theme folder as per the instructions at the bottom of the theme page.

    If I open that folder I see files like sidebar, content, etc.

    I still don’t have the theme show up on my theme page though

    I do not appear to have a nested directory:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Helene\Desktop\wordpress-2.7\wordpress\wp-content\themes\sliding-door

    In one of the videos that showed that the image of the theme showed up but then when clicked on, the page was blank. That is not what is happening….I don’t get the image at all. It doesn’t show up.

    Any other suggestions? (and thanks!)
