    Make sure that you have actually activated your the ITDR Admin plugin.

    On the left hand side of the wordpress navigation panel, make sure you both activate the "ITDR Admin":
    Login > Plugins > ITDR Admin > Activate

    Also, be sure to activate your purchased theme:
    Login > Appearance > Themes > (Under your Theme Thumbnail) Activate

    That should do it!
    Have A Great Day !

    @janine -- you probably moved your installation without giving us a heads up.  each install is tied to a unique url.  please submit a support ticket.

    I have installed the theme Vanilla and Flaunt and Blogshow.  The only one that is showing up in the plugins is Blogshow.   I have activated Blogshow in the plugins. 

    I see Vanilla in the FTP directory: /public_html/vanilla-core and /public_html/vanilla-data,  It is not in the plugins directory.  

    I have access the theme in nameofmywebsite.com/vanilla-index.php?/admin/#design.  How do I have access to it in the Wordpress Dashboard?

    Hi,

    FYI, when navigating to the URL as stated below it went straight to the main webpage;

    "Step 2: INSTALLING WORDPRESS

    Open up your internet browser. Go to the URL where you installed your blog."
     

    This was resolved by adding /wp-admin to the address.

     

    Cheers,

    Jon

    My ITDR ADMIN plugin does not show up under installed plugins. Only the blogshow plugin is there. I am able to activate my blog template, but this plugin is nowhere to be found. Please help.

    @brooke - most of our templates are moving toward plugin-less installations -- everything will work straight from the theme.  if you have activated the theme, you should still see "ITDR Admin".
