Hi all,

The following directions depict how to set a new theme in the administration panel according to the wiki:

Step 1. Go to System > Configuration > Design via the top navigation bar
Step 2. In the Theme text field, type: new_theme
Step 3. Press the “Save config” button in the upper right corner

As for Step 2, I might be overlooking something, but I don’t have a Theme text field. I’m using the latest build, as far as I’m aware. Here’s a screen shot of my administration area:

Thanks…

I have a similar problem, i changed the theme but the website doesn’t change and cashing is disabled.

store

if I go to the login page then that one is changed.

On my test server using xampp all works well, but not on a remote server.
