I am attempting to create my first Magento 2 theme.

I have created a new theme here:


I copied the blank theme from /vendor/magento/theme-frontend-blank/ into MyTheme and then I created/edited various files, as per the instructions here.

In the Admin Panel I have gone into Stores > Configuration > Design and Ive set the theme to MyTheme.

However the front end it appears that my new theme isnt being used.

When I enable template path hints from the Admin Panel, the frontend shows that all the files are being got from here /vendor/magento/module-theme/view/frontend/templates/ instead of /app/design/frontend/MyComp/MyTheme/.

Can anyone explain why Magento 2 is ignoring my theme, and how I can fix this?

Many thanks in advance.
