Theme not visible in appearance menu
Posted 05 May 2013 - 08:05 AM
I have installed a new theme (iBlog Pro) - it shows as installed in the Pagelines store and I have checked in the WP-content / themes folder on the server and it is in there.
However it is not available to activate in the appearance menu in WP
How do I activate it?

Can you provide a link to the site in question and also what version of iBlogPro have you installed?

It is iBlog Pro5 (from the Pagelines store)
The site is

iBlogPro 5 is a child theme for PageLines Framework, therefore you need to have PageLines Framework installed. The simplest way to install the theme is to:
1. Login to your websites Wordpress Admin Dashboard and make sure PageLines Framework is the active theme.
2. Now go to PageLines > Dashboard > Your Account and make sure your PageLines username and password have been entered.
3. Once your PageLines username and password have been entered, go to PageLines > Store > Themes > Top Premium.
4. Scroll down until you find iBlogPro 5 and click install.
iBlogPro 5 should now be installed correctly.
If you didn't use this method to install iBlogPro 5, can you inform us how you installed the theme. If iBlogPro 5 isn't available in the Appearance > Themes menu, then the theme isn't installed correctly.

OK this was how I installed the theme.
It is not visible in the appearance > themes menu
I will delete the theme from the server and re-install - I will see if this solves it.

I have deleted and re-installed the theme in exactly the way described (as done originally)
The same issue persists, I am afraid.

Can you confirm that when you look in wp-content/themes (via FTP) you have pagelines-iblogpro5 listed there?

Can you screenshot Dashboard > Appearance > Themes, please.
And if possible, Dashboard > Store > Themes > Your Themes to show iBlog5?
