  • Template files should be under app/design/frontend/your_package/default/template – pspahn Oct 1 '13 at 6:49
  • hi pspahn, what about layout files? – Manoj Kumar Oct 1 '13 at 6:53

The folder in app/local has nothing to do with your theme.
Your template & layout files need to be placed in app/design/frontend/test/default/template/ and app/design/frontend/test/default/layout/.
Your js, css and images need to be placed in skin/frontend/test/default/.
After having these set up you need to set in System->configuration->design the Current package name to test (lowercase letter).
Save and clear the cache.
If you don't want to use default as the theme folder (but it's better if you do) you can change the folders above to app/design/frontend/test/{theme_name}/template/
app/design/frontend/test/{theme_name}/layout/
skin/frontend/test/{theme_name}/.
if you do this then you have to set in System->Configuration->Design->Themes the field Default to {theme_name}. (Don't use curly brackets. They are there just as placeholders).
