I downloaded Thesis to my Fat Cow account, but my Dashboard doesn't "see" Thesis

  1. I downloaded Thesis into the Themes folder, changed the cache setting to 775 (Fat Cow told me to use 755, so I tried both) and I changed the Layout CSS to 666. I think the files are in the right folders. Why isn't my dashboard seeing Thesis as a Themes option? Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is sueryanphotography.com.

  2. The blog linked to your username is a free blog being free hosted by WordPress.com.
    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs for security reasons and we cannot upload themes into them. The only themes we can use are located here > Appearance > Themes

    Thesis is a paid theme that can only be used on WordPress.ORG installs for self-hosting. Please read this entry so you are clear on the differences between the two. WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org: The Differences WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org

    If you are asking about a self-hosted WordPress.ORG install then know this there is not support to be found here at WordPress.COM for self hosted installs. You must post to http://wordpress.ORG/support to get support for self-hosted WordPress.ORG installs.

  3. if your downloading into a theme into a theme folder, you are not using a

    wordpress.COM. blog

    change wordpress.com blogs by dashboard-->appearance-->themes.

  5. The saddest thing is, some people are still charging for Thesis and know damn well it can't be used here.

  6. I agree. It's really annoying that people are so opportunistic on one hand, and so gullible on the other.

  7. thanks everybody.
