  • where is your site?

    “I have followed all the rules to upload new themes”…”

    These instructions?:

    “ do I install them?”

    follow these instructions:

    Yo whooami-
    Site is:…
    Thanks for the comeback –

    Are you uploading them to:

    Some themes have a double folder. Be sure you just have one folder uploaded in your themes directory.


    I have followed the instructions explecitly….downloaded three themes and uploaded them with FileZilla….the 3 theme files appear in their folders as uploaded, but do not appear in presentations….nor does the select option. I’m a newbee and this is my first try….your help will be appreciated –


    When on your site, try doing a hard refresh of your browser – Ctrl + F5

    Also if your WP is prior to 2.0.3, you probably have a cache folder – empty the contents of the folder.

    cklick that link, you have NOT uploaded the themes to the correct directory 🙂

    they need to be in something that will resemble this:

    yo whooami..
    you’re right…neither of the three are uploaded in the proper directory, it appears. I have uploaded as you suggested and that did’nt work either.
    I’m gonna sleep on this’n…thanks again –

    Nope I can see you havent got it right yet.

    A screenshot of what you see when you ftp into your site would be helpful..but for the time being..

    heres how it typically looks:

    you ftp and youre in /

    from there you might see:


    when you cd (change directories) into public_html, you are in whats commonly called your web_root. everything in there is accessable from the web.

    locate your wp-config.php. In that same directory, there out to be a directory (folder) named wp-content, and inside wp-content should be another directory (folder) named themes.

    THATS where your uploaded themes need to be.

    Yo whooami- I followed your directions and it worked like a charm!…thanks much…checkout the theme and tell me what you think…I owe you one –
