Hi everyone,

I followed this http://www.magentocommerce.com/design_guide/articles/working-with-magento-themes and made myself a new template.
The new template loads fine in the CMS but in the store I still get the default theme.

I confirmed I have the correct store under Current Configuration Scope but still the new theme loads only on front page.

Can anyone explain better what exactly I should do to make my new theme work in the store itself too?

You either have the Default theme set as your main theme or have your categories set to the Default theme.

Go to:
Admin > System > Configuration >Design > Themes Dropdown > Make sure your themes name is in the “Default” field

You can also specify which category leads to what theme by going to:
Admin > Catalog > Manage Categories > Choose the category to change > From that categories top menu (should be 4); choose “Custom Design”, and pick your theme for that category.

Hope this helps smile

Sorry for the long delay but thanks a lot iiNTENSE,

Once I choose the new theme under the main category and applied to all sub categories it’s loads beautifully.
