[Resolved] "Child" Skin Issue

Recommended Posts

I am using Foundation Skin on CC6.08

I downloaded the entire skin using an FTP package (Filezilla)

I then renamed the skin and uploaded it into the skins folder on my installation.

When I went into Store Settings | Layout settings |

Looking at the drop down "Skin Settings" the only option I have is "Foundation"

The renamed, uploaded skin is not showing as an option.

I then went to "Maintenance" and ticked the
Clear cache
Clear SQL cache
Clear language cache
Clear image cache

and Rebuild Sitemap options.

Clicked "Save' and the new skin is not showing up.

I'm sure I'm missing something silly.

Thanks in advance for your help.

There is one additional edit -- in the skin's config.xml file, edit the <uid>, <name>, and <display> nodes to have the new name of the skin.

Bsmither Thank you!

If I understand correctly I change

<uid>[email protected]</uid>

TO

<uid>UUID-Code</uid>

AND change

<name><![CDATA[foundation]]></name>
 <display><![CDATA[Foundation]]></display>

TO

<name><![CDATA[SKINNAME]]></name>
    <display><![CDATA[SKINNAME]]></display>

Skin name being whatever the name of the child skin is.

UUID code can e generated on line with a tool I just found here:

https://www.uuidgenerator.net

so a code like this: 095f4d8b-b647-4c35-84ea-83d16b05d73a

Is that correct?

All of that is good, but a few notes:

From: <uid>[email protected]</uid>
To: <uid>[email protected]</uid>

is just as unique.

<name> must be the same as the folder name - capitalization being the same - laughinghorse (for example)

<display> can be whatever you want, such as: Laughing Horse

Please forego the idea of this new folder being a "child" skin (of some other skin). That is not how CubeCart works. Each skin is distinct and separate from any other skin.

Bsmither - Yeah, the child skin did not really seem to be fitting the way it seems to work.

Thanks for your help. I've got that part working right now.

I knew it had to be something minor I missed :)
