To find themes options for Attitude, go to customize. In customize you will find the theme options is presented as "design options" on the leftside. I hope this helps.

This link explains that as per newer WordPress guidelines in the theme Attitude (along with most themes, if not all) the Theme Options options have been moved to the customize menu. Mine have all been listed individually below the other customize options in the left sidebar. That should help, I hope!

Hi Rich, I installed the two themes shown in the video: Attitude and Hueman. When I activate Attitude is when I don't see the Theme Options.

Hi Maria,

Sorry I've just realised I never replied to this. I think Lisa has the answer for you though :)

So I made my wordpress site in a sub directory. As i didn't want it to affect my main site. I wasn't seeing the theme options initially. If you see in the top left corner the wordpress menu navigation bar. there is one called "my sites". Be sure to select "network admin" as you won't be able to search and install themes unless you are.

Hi Chris, how did you make your sub directory. I also don't want to affect my main website.
