    Hey all, I am trying to install some themes for my bbpress/wordpress site and when I go and install the theme files to my-themes all I get in the “available themes” page are blank themes with just the names showing, and if I try and activate it, the site is just blank. I have attached a shot, or a link to a screen shot of what I am seeing. Any help would be greatly appreciated! And by the way, thanks for all the help all ready, this site has helped me get my bbpres site running on the same DB as my wordpress!

    What are these “user” and “core” directories? bbPress themes you create should be in a my-templates directory. The my-templates directory should have 755 permissions.

    Hey Chris, I don’t know what they are, that’s just what they’re called, I don’t believe I had anything to do with the naming. Can you tell me how to change or check to see if I have 755 permissions turned on? Thanks for the help Chris!

    OK, did a Google search for 755 permissions and found this page:

    Changes my permissions in my FTP and suddenly and quite magically the themes appear!!!! Thanks for you help!

    I’m having the same issue here. I’ve downloaded two themes from the web site and installed in the directory my-themes and gave the directory 755 permissions and none of the themes are visible except the standard installs. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong ?

    make sure the folder is called “my-templates” I have trouble setting permission trough Dreamweaver. I always have to go through my ftp program to do it right.
