I am trying to create a theme, but I haven't a clue how I switch the site back to a different theme I have uploaded.

Can somebody point me in the right direction.  How do I delete a theme as well.

I added my header but I lost my menu across the top.  Can anybody help.

Easiest way is to actually edit the theme. On that form is a checkbox to make it active for all zones.

I am going to redesign the manage themes screen as follows, when reviewing this morning I did see it is over-complex for simple sites:

(I haven't removed any functionality as such – but it will in the future simplify itself down to not talk too much about zones and default themes, if your settings mean those things don't really apply)

If you refer to the zone-menu, the .global_navigation selector in the global.css file sets its location on the page. See following image for details:

Actually the menu had been removed from the GLOBAL_HTML_WRAP template entirely.

shazie – I've put it back for you.

No problem. I actually spent a few hours today improving the various screens involved in all this, because I found a few usability issues. The biggest issue being that if you put the code editor into full screen, it doesn't work properly – so quite hard to work within the template if you can't do this.
