"Themes Available to Install" - No Name & No Description - NEWBIE
So far I have:
- copied the theme folder to the root>themes folder
- changed the folder title
- changed the description.txt file ( I even made sure the title was exactly the same as the folder title)
- turned on Advanced Settings (although I'm the administrator)
- tried a second theme, just in case I was going mad
I got the same result.
The themes are listed ready to install, but have no name, no description, a blank thumbnail and can't seem to make any other connection with the theme, even though I have changed nothing else.
I am operating with MAMP.
I am not a developer and have run out of magic tricks.
I assume it has something to do with file threads. I've attached a copy of my Finder thread in the hope this may help you.
Look CAREFULLY at the folder names within the theme.
You DON'T want the package folder titled 'theme_theme_name'.
You want the folder UNDER that, simple titled 'theme_name'.
Small point but it nearly sent me to therapy.
I hope I can save others from the same fate
