    I have installed SitePad on my new server : ip (directadmin). After I have completed my installation and try to create website, there was no pre-made Theme that can be selected.

    SitePad Welcome admin
    All Sites
    Add New Site
    Clone Sites
    Overview Theme Details Complete

    Select a Theme 0
    Search Themes

    On other server, when I create a website there will be a lot of themes for me to choose. Can you please let me know what is wrong with this?
