I'm trying to change the package+theme for a magento installation.

  • The old theme is at default/paws
  • The new theme is at ebajes/default

While the rest of the views (home page, categories, etc.) have been changed to the new one, the products are still being shown with the old theme

I have tried :

  • making a change in admin system > design
  • setting the value of "package" and "template" in system > config > design
  • setting custom display of the supercategory of all products
  • setting custom display for specific categories

I even tried renaming the entire default/paws folder, but its now falling back to the default/default theme.

Where should this change be made? The caches are disabled.

    unlikely, but you don't have a custom design set on all the products? – Andrew Kett Feb 12 '15 at 7:41
  • @andrewkett No there is no theme set on any product. Yet, explicitly setting it to the desired theme, works. There is also some level of randomness in whether a page renders as old or new. – Milind R Feb 12 '15 at 13:22

I am experiencing this as well. Do you have GT Optimizer installed? I suspect that is the issue for me.

My workaround is to use System->Design. On this page use 'Add Custom Design'. Select your theme, set the start day in the past, and do not set an end date. This has forced the theme on all my pages.

  • I did that, but it worked for everything else, except product pages. – Milind R Mar 1 '15 at 5:52

Could not find the reason why it was acting funny, but I got it solved by :

  • Manage Products → Select all
  • Edit properties
  • Set custom layout to the desired one.

This workaround works not allways first time:

But doing this more times, it solves the problem!
