Setting a different template for a specific menu item does not seem to take effect

Asked by jsherk on 2010-12-20

I am using the Smoothness skin of the Cloud theme.

I copied the cloud theme to a new directory in the themes direcotry and called it mycustomtheme and installed the theme.

I then made some noticeable changes to the jquery/css/smoothness/jquery-ui.css files.

I then changed one of the menu items to use mycustomtheme but none of the changes take effect.

Looking at the <head> section of the page, there does not appear to be any mycustomtheme css loaded even after clearing cookies and reloading page.

I also tried completely changing the theme to mycustomtheme on Template Admin page and also changed the default theme under Theme Settings to mycusomtheme, but when checking the <head> section it appears that all pages are still loading the cloud theme and not mycustomtheme.

In your custom theme, if you open theme.php you will note a list of src directories that it includes, did you change those to your custom themes directories?

No I did not! That would be the problem. It looks like you also need to modify the error.php file as well.

Thanks

No you don't have to set error.php he uses the cloud template for styling, except if you wish to of coarse.
