Hi to all.
I'm new with SilverStripe.
I installed it on my local machine and also unpacked some themes into the themes folder from the Silverstripe website.

However, the downloaded themes are not shown properly while the default theme is shown properly.

How can I fix it?

Hi there,

Are you able to offer any more information?
What exactly isn't shown properly? Are they new themes not displaying at all?
Take a look at this tutorial - See if it helps at all.

there is a very good chance that the them you are using is for 2.x.x and you have an install for 3.x.x

Please check this as the templating has changed between those versions
