I'm fairly new to Magento. I have successfully installed Magento, sourced a theme I like and followed the install instructions.

When the theme is installed and theme name is entered into: System > Config > Design > Default: 'Theme Name'

It makes no changes to my website.

I have looked around the web for answers and this had led me to try refreshing the cache.

From what i've read, it sounds like the theme I have installed is not being found my Magento and is falling back to the default theme, but I can't seem to find a fix.

I'm not sure if i'm meant to post website details here, but the website is:enter link description here

Any help is much appreciated, Thanks
