Hi,

I've just done a fresh install of OC2.2 (Latest) and I've duplicated the default theme index and renamed the folder but no options for the dropdown are showing just the 'default store layout'.

Any ideas?

Best,

Just to update I've tried setting it directly in the database by changing config_theme to my theme folder and that does work as a get around but It's throwing up path errors for some of my custom modules. Looks like it's pointing to the wrong path as its printing out view/theme/default/template/default/template/module/


I've also checked my config.php and can confirm it's pointing to the correct path:

(*** out the domain for reason by the way ;))

I ended up changing my modules controller to look at a different path so it points it correctly and it seems to be working ok now.

The original issue though of OC not picking up the theme folders still persisted though, but it works if you manually change it in the database.

Does this mean the place in Store Settings to select theme is in effect not used anymore with OC 2.2?
It is just confusing that it is still there? I wonder, did someone forget to remove it?

What @moused72 say is true for default theme and theme before OpenCart 2.2.0.0.
The "Theme Directory" is used as compatibility for old themes.

When theme is natively support OpenCart 2.2, you will see the themes name at Extensions > Themes.
As example, you can try my default2 theme. It's free and natively support OpenCart 2.2

It's still used for theme that natively work for OpenCart 2.2
And it's not bugs, this is one of OpenCart 2.2 new features

And as note, Theme listing at System > Setting only work for theme that is installed at Extensions > Themes.
