I’m trying to install a Magento theme.I am trying to install it by coping theme’s app,skin and js folder into magento’s app,js and skin folder.Theme works okay except the home page.

In homepage’s content section i have add this:

<b><div>
{{block type="catalog/product_list" template="catalog/product/my_template.phtml"}}
</div></b>

which loads theme’s template and sets its design but in my case it doesn’t apply the template, What i lack here? help me guys!

Hi,
First you need to check the file of home page is available in your theme template folder or not. It means your path should be like this.

Magento->app->design->frontend->[yourtheme]->[yourtheme]->catalog->product->[my_template.phtml].

After installing the new theme, you have to set that theme for the magento.
To set that theme you may follow the following steps.

1. Open Admin panel
2. System Menu -> Design Option.
3. ‘Add Design Changes’ option at top-right corner.
4. Select the theme (your theme name display here) from ‘Custom Design’ option and Press the Save.

Hope this will help you.
