Hi there,

I have a conflict with the themes from the main joomla site. I want to use a different theme for the homepage and a different theme for all other pages including shopping cart/products.

The problem is that when you add something to the cart, the URL redirect is index.php so it shows the incorrect theme.... it rightfully shows the main index page with the correct theme but I don't want to do that. I want to show the other theme during checkout like every other page. This only happens when adding a product to the cart which redirects to index.php. The rest of the checkout process and all inside pages show the correct theme.

Has anyone resolved this behavior? I'm sure I'm not the only person with 2 joomla themes.... am I?  :o
