    Selecting a new theme Link to this post

    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?
