Hi guys,

I created my own theme.
Duplicated the default, edited CSS,
I changed in settings and in extensions/theme, default store theme
I cleared cache in modifications, and refreshed shift F5 many times,
but the theme won't switch?
What's wrong?

How did you created your theme? Is your theme named "default store theme"?

I just duplicated the theme folder and renamed it, and selected that in the admin

Ensure to follow the FAQs when clearing OC caches: viewtopic.php?f=176&p=737014#p718325

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.

I did a couple of times, but the stylesheet (and the template) does not point to the new theme, it stays at default.
On what places in the shop do I assign the new theme?
- in settings it points to the default theme
- in extensions > theme it points to the new theme Encounters

And then refresh...

You should only include the files that you change in your theme so it is wrong to duplicate everything.

So just add the folder with the css? That's a strange way.

There are threads already about how to start creating a new theme:
