I'm trying the edit a theme i've uploaded via FTP to the APP & PUB folders.

However, I've checked under Content and Configuration and nothing is displayed. Not even the default theme. See attached. enter image description here

I've tried to filter the option to only show my Store but still nothing shows to select any theme.

The themes are installed properly because I can see them under Content, Themes. I can see the default themes and the custom theme.

Any help will be great

  • Could you share the contents of the registration.php and theme.xml files inside the theme you installed (found in the root of the theme app/design/frontend/{{vender}}/{{theme}}/) . While you might be seeing the theme listed in the Content -> Themes section, it sounds like the theme is still not configured correctly.

  • Sure, the registration.php contents: ?php /** * Copyright © 2016 SW-THEMES. All rights reserved. */ \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register( \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::THEME, 'frontend/Smartwave/porto', DIR ); Oct 21, 2017 at 10:48
  • theme.xml contents: <!-- /** * Copyright © 2016 SW-THEMES. All rights reserved. */ --> <theme xmlns:xsi="w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd"> <title>Smartwave Porto</title> <parent>Magento/blank</parent> <media> <preview_image>media/preview.png</preview_image> </media> </theme> Oct 21, 2017 at 10:49
