Theme is installed in 'Add Functionality' (and /packages) but does not show up in themes.
When I go to my themes tab the theme does not appear/ show up as an option. I did check and all the files (not zipped or in a folder in a folder, etc.) - the theme folder and add-on folders are copied into the root /packages directory.
I feel like I did everything correctly and the files are there (in /packages) and installed in Concrete5 (in add functionality and Pages & Themes attributes)... just not showing up in the Themes tab so I can not activate it.
I tried deleting, releasing from the project and then downloading and reinstalling again but with no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.
Off topic: You choose Hostgator over Arvixe? What happened with the Arvixe account? I have had good results with them.
Since I had not yet put content on my site and I was using quick installer I deleted Concrete5 and reinstalled. I then was able to get the templates to show up in the new project's theme tab.
I suspected it could be cache issue that I am not familiar with. Hopefully that is what it was and I will research best cache practices on Concrete5. I did everything the same the second go and it worked so something was stuck/ needed cleared as far as I could tell. I wasn't sure about some of the cache settings but will research more.
As far as leaving Arvixe... I initially was going to use my current hosting (Hostgator) but their quick install wasn't the latest version and I saw some people having issues with. I used the quick set up on Concrete5 and Arvixe was the default and offered a 30 day trial. I didn't like that I had to pay for a year up front and I couldn't try month-to-month but other than that they seemed pretty good from my experience and research and I would consider going with them in the future.
I am just going to stay with Hostgator for now. Their quick install worked well - I had to run one update. I had my site up and running (the second time) in a few minutes.
Thanks again. Hopefully if someone else has the same problem this will lead them in the right direction. If I have the problem again and can resolve I will post a follow up here.
