When I install my theme and click on the preview button, I can’t see the preview of the actual site. It’s just a plain white site with the writing that should be attached to a theme.

When I look at my themes (there are 4), the one I’ve uploaded looks correct…just doesn’t work when I click on preview. Why would this be?

First of all, read the documentation that comes with this theme. Second, you should know that after the installation of a theme does not automagically create a clone of the demo you see here on ThemeForest. You must adjust the settings, create pages and psts manually.

The site is blank because you probably did not uploaded a logo, have not created a menu, have not set the home page, etc.

If you want to see a theme in action you should actually install it, not just preview by pressing the “Preview” button.
