I have a few questions:

2) where would i get new themes from?

3) how do i make the whole page narrower?

I have the same question. I recently installed 2.5 on my server and now the option to select the theme is missing. Everything else seems to be working.  Has the theme selection been moved somewhere else?

Found it (

Not obvious. I did not expect a Theme to be considered a plugin. Maybe it is.

Well, I did not consider you talking about development build either :) It has been changed since 2.5 release.

In current development build:

admin -> plugins -> themes

Thanks - one more question - where in the SQL database is the theme stored?

I can't see the option to change the theme (empty page) When I click on the Appearance tab in version, also dashboard tab is not working.  Here is the error message:

The page cannot be found

The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

Please try the following:

  • Make sure that the Web site address displayed in the address bar of your browser is spelled and formatted correctly.
  • If you reached this page by clicking a link, contact the Web site administrator to alert them that the link is incorrectly formatted.
  • Click the Back button to try another link.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

So there is no way at this point to change the look of the blog.
