Changing Default Template

I can’t seem to get the default template to change - I’m trying to change all pages from the default to the modern template.  In the system config I changed everything for themes from default to modern (see attached), but some pages still show the default template, like when I do a search.  Basically anything not a product page goes to the default instead of modern.  I tried changing the package to default but I got an error that said it wasn’t found.

How did you solve this problem because I’m having the same issue of trying to change my default template?

I know that other templates are installed on my server but can’t figure out the admin configurations?

in admin, goto System > Configuration > Design (left bar)

add/edit the theme name under “Package” and “Themes”

I tried setting these two settings to both “blank” “modern” and other themes. The only one that seems to work is “default” for package and then “default” for themes?

The file path on my server is:  skin/frontend/default/default
The file path on my server is:  skin/frontend/default/blank
The file path on my server is:  skin/frontend/default/blue
The file path on my server is:  skin/frontend/default/modern

Any ideas will be great appreciated how what to do next.

To switch the site to modern theme you need to go to CMS --> Manage Pages --> Your Page --> Custom Design --> modern.
