The theme select dropdown was removed from 1.5.xx because a lot of people don't need it, if using one particular theme. 

The function is still built it though, you just need to add this token to each themes template.php file to make it display.
Code: [Select]
More info about the tokens here,

Hope this helps.  ;)
Running SMF 2.1.4  / Tinyportal 3.0.0, bridged with Coppermine 1.6.25, plus cpmfetch 2.0.0

Some more information about that token:
In older versions of Coppermine, all themes used to contain the placeholder token {THEME_SELECT_LIST}. This token used to be replaced with a list of the available themes and only if the corresponding option in coppermine's config used to be checked (by default, the option used to be unchecked). This has changed in cpg1.5.x: if your custom theme's template.html contains the token {THEME_SELECT_LIST}, the corresponding output will be displayed no matter what, as the option in coppermine's config has been dropped.

Therefore, if you use a theme that was designed for cpg1.4.x, the theme selector will show after the upgrade to cpg1.5.x even if you had the display turned off before. If this bothers you, just remove the template placeholder token {THEME_SELECT_LIST}.
