Go Admin -> System -> Configuration -> Under “General” choose “Design”

Under Design, you will see Package and Themes.
- Package references the first directory under ../skin/frontend/<your_package> and ../app/design/frontend/<your_package> (by default it is set to “default")
- Themes references the first directory within the Package directory for both skin and app.

So if you want to change your theme, you will need to update both of these depending on your config. By default (as before) your Package will remain the same and you will just need to update the theme info. So all that is required will be changing the default theme from “default” to “modern” if that’s your theme’s directory naming convention for the following:
- Translations = <yourtheme_name>
- Templates = <yourtheme_name>
- Skin (Images / CSS) = <yourtheme_name>
- Layout = <yourtheme_name>
- Default = <yourtheme_name>

Hope this helps…

michaelc: You can actually just edit the “Default” line and leave the rest blank.

what if this just doesn’t work. Its not switching themes at all. I just downloaded the blank theme from the Magento Connect tool. I want to just switch the themes in the admin and see the blank theme but it stays on a different “package” all together. It doesn’t seem to matter at all what I type in the “package” field? Any ideas??
