So I am a newbie to SS and I like what I see so far. I created a new theme (copy the blackcandy)
In the CMS interface, I selected the site and selected the theme to be used as my new theme.
That does not seem to work. I edieted the _config.php and then set the theme in the file like so
SSViewer::set_theme('kindering');
and that seems to work.

Now, I would have expected that when I selected the theme in the CMS via a drop down, it would do the
required stuff to set the theme. If I need to actually edit the config file, what is th point of the
drop down for selecting the themes on the CMS interface for site properties?
