Hi markmunsee,

Im no expert, just trying to help, but try going to the "Add Functionality" page and see if the theme is installed. This happened to me earlier today, and mine just wasnt installed.

Hope this helps,

Hi ... I am having the SAME problem.
I purchased several themes.
I clicked on "install" ... and the button says INSTALLED.
Then I go to my website ... and view the available themes,
and the NEW ones I bought and installed do not show up. How come?
If anyone knows how to make this work ... please tell us!

Check your Project page to see that the license has been "Associated" to your site. After that, go to your sites Dashboard and select "extend Concrete5" from the bottom left. You'll be prompted to first download, then to install. When that is done you'll be able to select it from your "themes" area in the dashboard.
hope this helps :)

For manual uploads, themes are to be loaded to the "Packages" directory

Day one for me, so a few questions...
Surely it's possible to create and add my own themes?

Using normal convention, I created a new theme using the default theme as the basis and made some changes... The new theme is located in the theme folder but when I try to add it, it does not show...

If you search through the howtos, there is an excellent tutorial "How to create a theme from start to finish" by 12345J and Jordanlev.

http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/designers/making-a-t...

There is plenty more in the documentation and howto pages, but that is the best.

There is also a great little book by Remo about theming concrete5, see the section near the end of
http://www.concrete5.org/documentation/how-tos/designers/absolute-b...
for a link to it.
