Hey,

Any help will be forever appreciated…

I’ve followed the guide, created a copy of the default interface and renamed it to a custom name.

------------- app/design/frontend/newInterface/newTheme

I’ve then replicated that over in the skin directory

------------- skin/frontend/newInterface/newtheme

Edited a few files in this directory

------------- app/design/frontend/newInterface/newTheme/template

The files edited where in page, basically changing the 3 column template to be that of my own template, which gets other elements from within the directory like this

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('header');?>

<?php echo $this->getChildHtml('footer');?>

However when I load the interface from the Magento admin, the theme changes (i think) but the output on the screen is just blank in the front end.... No source at all.

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Alistair

Make sure you’ve selected the right column layout in admin. You should at least see your header and footer on frontend. For content display, include the content-call in your template files. Use the same code as above but replace ‘header’ with ‘content’. For reference, please follow Magento’s default template files.
