How does templating work? Is it just a header and a footer?

I didn’t see a place int he backend demo for adding a template.

Thanks!

Hello Jackie.d,

Magento is based on theme packages and not templates. You can learn more about how to create your own “theme” even if it’s only changing the header and footer in this document:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/design_guide

Also check out this step by step video tutorial about how to create a theme: http://www.magentocommerce.com/media/screencasts/designers-guide-1/view

Another option for you would be to select a ready theme from what is offered through Magento Connect.
