Themes not available to select

Theme isn't showing up in choices for themes in the admin module. Themes were downloaded and moved to the themes directory on our server.


Make sure the user that your web server runs on has permission to read the theme directories that you uploaded.

Let me know if that works.

Can you see the default themes that come packaged with Omeka in admin/themes (Thanks, Roy and Minimalist)?

Were other themes unzipped before moving them to the themes directory on the server?


I figured out the problem. There was a permissions issue with the folder. I unzipped the file on the PC and moved the files over to our server, and the additional templates I had downloaded didn't show up in the Admin module.

When I unzipped the templates directly on the server, in Ubuntu, they showed up in the admin module and I could select them. Yay!


Hi, I am having the same issue, using Omeka 1.5.3 and trying to get the easyColour theme to show up as an option. Permission settings on the folders are the same as the other downloaded themes, but it is not showing as a selectable option. Thought that I might not have gotten the whole thing, but I downloaded and expanded it and then uploaded it to the theme directory again.
