Hi to everyone,
I’m developing my first magento theme; I’ve start develop locally and today I uploaded it on server,but there’s a problem..
I followed the instruction of Magento Designer Guide, and I did theese steps:
-download and installation of the latest version of magento locally
-I created 2 folders called myTheme in app/design/frontend/default e in skin/frontend/default
-in app/design/frontend/default/myTheme I created a folder called layout within a local.xml file into
-I put all my layout modifications into local.xml and I’ve copied (from /app/design/frontend/base/default) e modified only the needed phtml files
Locally the theme works well, but on server works wrong..
Magento doesn’t load the layout modifications and my phtml files..
All the paths are wrong; for example in the source code there’s
What’s wrong? did I miss some steps?March 23, 2011 at 5:58 pm #54449

I finally solved it :)
There was a conflict with modern theme..
I bought an hosting solution with a pre-installed italian version of Magento, and there was even the Modern theme installed.. I simply modify the folder name of Modern in ModernOLD and I selected myTheme under cms->homepage->design, for recognize the correct theme folder with the istruction $this->getSkinUrl() ..March 24, 2011 at 4:47 pm #53930
noo man.. there’s still some problem.. magento doesn’t recognize the right paths… take a look at this page:
the getSkinUrl() function doesn’t retrieve the path of my theme… why this? How can I fix this?
Magento has a lot of great features but seems to be too instable and the themes’ management it’s too muddle-headed…
For the next projects I’d like to try another sw..like zen-cart,oscommerce o wordpress with needed plugins..March 25, 2011 at 6:22 am #53780
I solved it :) and I think can be useful for other with the same problem:
I deleted the content of the folder /var/cache and then I replaced the
for all the images in the phtml files..May 14, 2018 at 4:13 am #271030
