How do I install a 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.
Hope this helps.
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.
Your suggestion shows me no blocks, but I have a receipt for payment!
I am used to Joomla, and though this looks interesting, I am struggling with its lack of intuity
ok, well that would explain why suddenly on a age I went to several times the download link suddenly appeared.
I then read something about if there is a configure.php then it is a package and should be uploaded to the package folder, so I unzipped and uploaded the folder to this package folder, but still it does not appear anywhere?
I really like the idea of this but OMG there is next to no real help here? If I add this to the themes folder, yes it appears under the theme to install, however it has no image, no name, no description, clearly there is something not right, hence it must be a package, but adding it to the package folder I see no way to actually install it!
This does actually suck, more so becaue I want to move away from Joomla, but come on, this is stupid.
I cant find any single instruction set that is right for this, either the instructions dont reflect what I can see, or they just dont do anything!
Is this forum the only form of support there is, even after spending money?
I suggest you go inside that admin section of the new theme, and click on various menu options such as:
settings, extend, theme,
to find what you need.
I only use Concrete5 and no other CMS because Concrete5 is so simple, yet provides so much.
What you are experiencing now is the only problem that I have ever had with Concrete5. Concrete5 has been a tremendous blessing to me.
Don't give up!
