I love blogging in WordPress, but often like Joomla to build sites. I have been playing around with Gantry’s Hydrogen template in Joomla and have been using it to build a new site for myself. My blog is in WordPress and would like the two site to look a like. Gantry’s Hydrogen is totally free and works for both systems.
I installed it on my new test WordPress site that I had already installed Divi and got some administration error, so I uninstalled it and tried it on a fresh copy and got the same “Theme cannot be used. For more information, please see the notice in administration.” I knew it wasn’t just Divi being installed on the other site.
If I would have read the install directions on the following page I would have installed the theme properly. Instead I watched the video on the page and it was installing in a Joomla site so I blew it off. There was a button for “wordpress”.
- First install the plugin from the WordPress dashboard plug-ins by searching for “Gantry”. I installed Gantry 5.
- Then move the theme into the themes folder and activate it.
I hope this helps someone else out there….
