I have duplicated the theme in app folder and modified the theme.xml accordingly. But it displays like below screen shot.

It should be look like this -

I have to mention that I have successfully ran all the commands in SSH:

setup:upgrade setup:di:compile cache:flush setup:static-content:deploy

and set the permissions right.

The problem occurs only with the duplicates of this theme

Thank you


Copy the app & pub folder of your theme & paste it into your Magento root directory & from there fire the below command

To set & install the new modules of your theme.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

To set & make visible the static content of your theme that is css,js,Images.

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

For your convenience & making sure about it that every thing is ready run this command also to remove the cache

php bin/magento cache:flush

Basically the last command is used for the cache clearing.

  • Ok, so I have tried using the initial setup for the theme. But the problem is elsewhere: the store is either not configured right, or there is another problem which I can't figure out. In console I get >>Uncaught SyntaxError: Invalid or unexpected token ( index ): 423<< Oct 19 '17 at 20:38
  • You could run this command for such an error php bin/magento indexer:reindex & if the problem is still persists than you can ask it in proper manner as an question on the same platform Thank You! Oct 20 '17 at 18:17

So the problem was I had forgotten to create the widgets for this new theme - with the "Design Package/Theme" set to it.
