I am trying to create new custom theme in magento I have followed the official document and did all the changes, I can see my custom theme in admin section too.

Now I need to make some adjustment in header/footer files but not able to find a proper way to do.

I have replaced all the folder on my theme such as below


and tried below also


I am not sure which one is the right but in above all cases still the files are coming from


How can I make to come these files from my folder? I need to override templates to suit my design.

Any view what I am doing wrong? did anyone created any new custom theme and it's working properly?

  • This is not a duplicate question, as I have seen some question with same heading, but didnt found all of them exactly giving the solution.
