Store and frontend are the same thing. Frontend is that which is shown to the public (your website), and since magento is an ecommerce package, the ‘store’ is basically the frontend.

I’m guessing you’ve made changes to a template file (2 or 3columns), which, then, won’t show on the checkout page since it uses 1column.

I understand that they are both on the frontend. It’s just strange that they are pulling from two different themes or skins directories.

See the two directories below:
This one shows that it’s in “INJOEDEFAULT”

Frontend
http://www.industrialjoe.com/dev/

This one shows that it’s in “DEFAULT”
http://www.industrialjoe.com/dev/skin/frontend/default/default/images/header_top_container_bg.jpg
Store
http://www.industrialjoe.com/dev/index.php/checkout/cart/

How and where do you change this? I have a feeling it’s something really simple that I’m missing.

Thanks for the help.

Best,

See this post:
http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/6422/

In your case, you’ll need to type “injoedefault”.  But based on the directory structure you are showing above, you have also changed the ‘package’, not just the ‘theme’.  If you were to use the default package, your directory structure would look like this:
.../skin/frontend/default/injoedefault/…

Have you seen this screencast?  There’s a pretty good explanation of themes here:

If that doesn’t help, perhaps something in your theme is explicitly calling files from another theme (probably not a good idea).
