Theme is not showing in DASHBOARD !!
I am trying to build a new website using c5. I have a static HTML theme, which I want to integrate. For that purpose I thought I will customize the elemental theme into the LooknFeel to my HTML theme.
I followed the tradition way of theme override.
1. I copied elemental theme from \concrete\themes to \themes
2. I changed the thumbnail and added description.txt( which was not included in elemental theme, I dont know why )
3. I renamed my theme folder into new and added corresponding details in description.txt
Now, I logged in as admin and clicked pages&themes in Dashboard. But no new themes are showing dashboard !! . To double check this, I went and download on free theme from concrete 5 website and put in the /siteroot/theme folder . No, that is also not showing in the Dashboard. What to do now ? I put down all kind of cache already.
what am I doing wrong? wrong location ?
I am using latest stable version of c5. I am attaching a screenshot of my folder directory structure.
The core files will remain in the concrete directory as its a core theme.
I would suggest deleting the copied version and activate the them using the files in the core then only copy the files you want to edit to the application directory.
