Hi, I wanted to rename my theme folder from ex. theme783 to customtheme. Do I just change the current theme to default in admin setting, rename theme783 to customtheme in ftp, then change back the default theme to customtheme in admin? What else do I need to edit?

1 - No OC version posted
2 - Leaving the default folder name as it is
3 - Renaming the custom theme folder name before uploading and extracting the package on the production server and installing it from the OC admin

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased counters are caused by posted redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Well, you will find out easy, if you just rename the Theme Directory.
and then, you have to check your .../template/common/header.tpl file,
it either contains Lines like this:

Code: Select all

wich would have to be renamed as well.
Or then, it looks about like this:

Code: Select all

catalog/view/theme/<?php echo $this->config->get('config_template');?>/....
and then, you don't have to change anything else, to usually make it work.
EXEPT: if you use some theme-specific VqMods, containing direct 'theme-name' Linkings,

Code: Select all

<file name='catalog/view/theme/theme783/ ........'>
BUT if you use a Custom Theme, wich add's it's own
system/.. - controller/.. - model/ .. Files + Code, you might have to change other Code as well... ::)
