Hi,

Wit excellent help from this forum I have managed to download the extension new theme. What do I need to do to actually activate the new theme?

Do I replace the default shop theme? (How?) Or can both themes run simultaneously? (How?)

Please advice,

Thanks, Pat

You go to System - configuration - design
Leave the Package - default
& under Themes - Default write modern

Thanks.

That seems to do the trick. At least, some of it. But it looks different than the demo as shown on the Magento site of the modern theme. All the pictures and products of the default theme are still on my frontpage. I would like to have it look the way as it is on the website.

Please advice.

Thanks,

Pat

You have to go to CMS - Manage pages -
Pick home page and put this in the content box,

{{block type="core/template" template="sample/home.phtml"}}

Thanks Liotropi, came one step further again. Yet now it looks like this: http://74.220.215.54/~urbankaj/magento/. It seems like it took everything from the old theme and mixed it with the new theme. I still must be missing something. Please advice.

Cheers,

Pat
