[solved] Import theme from disk - appears to be missing

Textpattern 4.8.0, clean diagnostics, no browser console errors.

On the Themes tab, I don’t have an option to import a (front side) theme from disk.

What’s the secret sauce to get that to appear, please?

Drop a theme in a subdir of the /themes dir.

Already done that. No dice, sadly.

The theme must not already exist in the db. Otherwise, uhhh, not sure. It should appear.

Odd. No entry in the db:

Exists in /themes/:

Definitely exists in /themes/ and rights are OK:

And yet:

I’ll keep looking.

Odd. Is your manifest.json well-formed in theme’s dir?

@manifest.json@ is fine.

Edit: passed linting tests, but I missed a typo. Whoops.

Thanks for the brains, Bloke!

Might have just figured it out – do I need the exact naming schema for the mandatory forms and pages?
