Install the App and Skin to the magento folder

follow these instructions

Add next code to homepage content field:

<!-- content -->

Add next code to homepage ‘custom design’ Layout Update XML: I add this to the custom design part of the home page

<reference name="left">
  <
block type="catalog/navigation" before="-" name="catalog.sidebar" template="catalog/navigation/sidebar.phtml"/>
</
reference>
<
reference name="content">
  <
block type="catalog/product_new" name="home.product.new" alias="product_new" template="catalog/product/new.phtml">
    <
action method="setProductsCount"><count>6</count></action>
    <
action method="addPriceBlockType">
      <
type>bundle</type>
      <
block>bundle/catalog_product_price</block>
      <
template>bundle/catalog/product/price.phtml</template>
    </
action>
  </
block>
</
reference>
<
reference name="top_slider">
  <
block type="cms/block"  name="showcase">
    <
action method="setBlockId">
      <
block_id>showcase</block_id>
    </
action>
  </
block
</
reference>
<
remove name="right.newsletter"/>

Set layout ‘3 columns’ at ‘custom design’ tab

Then i do
Create block ‘showcase’ with code:

<div id="slider">
    <
div class="slidercontrolwr">
        <
div class="slidercontrol">
        <
a href="#" class="aprev" title="Previous" onclick="my_glider.previous();return false;">Previous</a>
        <
a href="#" class="astop" title="Stop" onclick="my_glider.stop();return false">Stop</a>
        <
a href="#" class="aplay" title="Play" onclick="my_glider.start();return false">Start</a>
        <
a href="#" class="anext" title="Next" onclick="my_glider.next();return false">next</a>
        </
div>
    </
div>
    <
div class="scroller">
        <
div class="content">
            <
div class="section" id="section1">
                <
a href="#" title=""><img src="{{skin url=""}}images/slider1.jpg" alt="" /></a>
            </
div>
            <
div class="section" id="section2">
                <
a href="#" title=""><img src="{{skin url=""}}images/slider2.jpg" alt="" /></a>
            </
div>
            <
div class="section" id="section3">
                <
a href="#" title=""><img src="{{skin url=""}}images/slider3.jpg" alt="" /></a>
            </
div>
            <
div class="section" id="section4">
                <
a href="#" title=""><img src="{{skin url=""}}images/slider4.jpg" alt="" /></a>
            </
div>
        </
div>
    </
div>
</
div>
<
script src="{{skin url=""}}js/glider.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    var 
my_glider = new Glider('slider'{duration:0.5autoGlidefalsefrequency4initialSection'section1'});
</script>

Create block ‘menu’ with code:

<li><a href="{{store url="about"}}"><span>About Us</span></a></li>
        <
li><a href="{{store url="testimonials"}}"><span>Testimonials</span></a></li>
        <
li><a href="{{store url="contacts"}}"><span>Contact Us</span></a></li>

Create block ‘payments’ with code:

<img src="{{skin url=""}}images/payments.gif" alt="payments" />

Then

Please navigate to Admin -> System -> Configuration -> ‘Design’ tab -> Themes’ Group and enter into ‘Templates’, ‘Skins’ and ‘Layout’ input fields f002 text.

And it still shows all pages as completely blank
