Default Non-newbie probs creating skin2 and switching skins in 3.3.1

Well, here I am again, finishing up another x-cart mod (for version 3.3.1)and wouldn't you know it, they changed the way the templates are found by x-cart.

I can't seem to get x-cart to find my new templates. Here's what I've done...am I forgetting something?....
  • 1.Duplicated the skin1 and skin1_original directories and renamed them skin2 and skin2_original.

    2.Changed the names of the skin1.conf and skin1.css to skin2.conf and skin2.css respectively.

    3.Changed 3 lines in my config.php file to read
    Code:
    $templates_repository = "../skin2_original"; $smarty->assign("skin_config","skin2.conf"); $mail_smarty->assign("skin_config","skin2.conf");

    4.Uploaded all the files.
Now when I look at my site I'm seeing the following error:
Quote:
Warning: Config_File error: Could not open config file '../skin1/skin2.conf' in /home/minorgod/traintosuccess-www/xcart.3.3.1/Smarty-2.3.0/Config_File.class.php on line 335

Anyone have a clue why this is happening? Is the "config.php.cnf" file used for anything? Might I need to change that as well? Why the heck is this thing looking in the skin1 directory for skin2.conf?

Maybe permissions?

nope, I've tried making the whole damned site writable. I'm starting to think there's something hard-coded that's making x-cart look for the skin1 directory since I've changed everything in the config.php file to skin2.

Default ah HA!

I found the culprit...it the "smarty.php" file. There's several places there where the smarty object needs to have the template directory changed.

Thanks....it's in a bit of a state of disrepair...I put up a Nuke site when I released my Dreamweaver extensions so I could have a plug-and-play CMS up and running in a few hours, but I never got around to tweaking the interface. The earlier versions of the site are a more creative, but less useful. Anyway, thanks for the props...we should probably stay on topic though, lest we be moderated.
