How do I install a theme?

Permalink
I have a purchased theme. In my Concrete5 account that theme is linked to a domain name. At that Domain name, I have installed Concrete5 using Softaculous. At the Concrete5 Dashboard of the website, I try to install my purchased theme.

The only option I am given is to purchase the theme again. I cannot figure out how to install the theme. The domain name is connected to the Concrete5 community, and the theme is connected to the domain name. But the only option I am given is to purchase the theme. But I have already purchased it.

Please advise. THANKS.

I somehow figured out how to get the theme installed. I don't know what I did, but I clicked something that worked.

Same problem! Does anyone have any helpful hints?

In the dashboard you will need to select "Extend concrete5". Then you will see a list of blocks or themes that you have available to download/install.

Hope this helps.

This can be confusing at first - for anyone else who stumbles on this.

Your active themes will install to the ./concrete/themes/ folder. If you want to install a theme, it should go in the ./themes/ folder. If you put the theme inside of your active directory, the software will ignore it.

This is especially baffling to anybody coming from WordPress, where we would just plop a new theme down in the ./wp-content/themes and hit activate.
