After you install the theme, go to System -> Configuration -> Design.

For the Themes section, set everything to modern, since that’s the name of the theme.

The theme will now be applied.

If you’re running the default install, you can make the front page look how the demo store on here does. For that you’ll need to update the CMS blocks, so go to CMS -> Manage Pages. Click on the Home Page.

You’ll be in the General Information section. Under Content, put the following:

{{block type="core/template" template="sample/home.phtml"}}

You can either comment out what’s already there, or just remove it completely.

Then you need to go to Custom Design and set the Layout to 1 column.

That’s it!

I did it and it’s working!! Thanks a lot!

Dear all,

I done folder settings in app and skin section before making configuration in admin. I am still getting error message

“An error occurred while saving this configuration: package with this name does not exist and cannot be set. “

It is very exhausting platform. For this, I messed with my running wordpress. It is still a Beta platform, things really not user friendly, perhaps they will take next 5 yrs to make it simple for various basic things. Installation, theme activation, then hosting needs, bla bla bla ... I now thinking hiring full time eCommerce developer for this platform, to deliver final “product” to my actual need !!!

Well does anyone has Magneto theme installation steps or video. Kindly make it user friendly, if you all developer out can read it, for us !!

Thanks
Sash

dont frustrate yourselves guys…

replace:

{{block type=\"core/template\" template=\"sample/home.phtml\"}}

with this:
<div class=\"std\">
<
div style=\"float: left; width: 653px;\"><img src=\"http://demo3.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/modern/images/media/home_co_main.jpg\" alt=\"\" /></div>
<
div style=\"float: right; width: 280px;\">
<
div style=\"margin: 0 0 10px;\"><img src=\"http://demo3.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/modern/images/media/home_co_tr.gif\" alt=\"\" /></div>
<
div><img src=\"http://demo3.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/modern/images/media/home_co_br.gif\" alt=\"\" /></div>
</
div>
<
div style=\"margin: 10px 0 0;\"><img src=\"http://demo3.magentocommerce.com/skin/frontend/default/modern/images/media/home_co_bottom.gif\" alt=\"\" /></div>
</
div>
