  6. I can't find several of these when I go into my Wordpress admin panel under appearance/theme. Is there a special code? I do the theme search within wordpress but ones like Balloon, for example, will not appear. Any tips?
    Thanks! There are so many you listed that seem perfect for my revamping of my blog (much neglected)

    Thanks!

    1. You need to click on the name of the theme you want and download the theme.

      So click on the name of a theme (in orange above the screenshot), locate the download link, then back in your WP dashboard under themes you will see the option to upload a theme.Upload the theme you downloaded (The entire zip file don't extract the files).

      Hope that gets it done for you.

    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
    maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
