Trouble with Themes Loading

Permalink
I upgraded to 5.7 last night... actually blew the site out and did fresh install. I found a theme in the community to play with but it will not "go live"

Looks to be installed and I set it to active but the default theme is still "The Boss".... even after removing the default theme.

Any suggestions?

I don't understand exactly what you'r saying. Are you saying you can't apply the new theme to your site?

If so you have to "Activate" the theme once its installed. Go to your dashboard under "Pages & Themes" and click "Activate" next to the them you want to activate. I've attached a screenshot.


The default theme is stored in /concrete/themes/ not /application/themes, so you would have to alter the systems core files to actually remove it. Usually it's best not to mess with stuff in the /concrete/ directory.

I did the activation process after first loading and it would not load or
change my theme. What I did was delete it, clear cache, re-download or add
to my site, then it worked.
