I'm trying to do an ajax request to a custom controller, but the renderWith keeps looking for the template on the Simple theme as opposed to current theme. Obviously it's using the one set _config, but doesn't that defeat the purpose of the selctable theme in the back end? Is this a feature or a bug?

Further more when calling something like:

$vd = new ViewableData();
	    return $vd->customise(array(
			"Title" => "MLS Search Results",
			"Query" => $communitySearch." priced between ".$min." and ".$max." with more than ".$bed." bedrooms and ".$bath." bathrooms.",
			"Results" => $set

I find the tempalte portions don't render fully. I occaionally loose my custom Menu data in the and I never get any of teh site data being pulled in
