Creating a New Theme Issue

I modified the Project84 theme and decided to copy it to a new theme so it won't get copied over during updates. I copied the folder, renamed it and then modified the theme.manifest file to this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<theme name="McCarter" title="McCarter" templateDirectory="themes/McCarter" imageDirectory="themes/McCarter">
  <image name="dayLink" fileName="bgh1.gif" />
</theme>

Then I went into Configuration and changed the default theme to McCarter, but it comes up as the dasBlog theme. Any ideas why??

Thanks,

David McCarter

Does it show on error in the events tab?

The manifest looks good to me.

I just had this same issue.  In the events tab it says

Error:
Failed to load theme selected by user {my theme name} and theme selected in config
{my theme name} while processing ..
