How do you set the Default page layout in the System > Configuration > General > Design > Themes > Layout option?
Im running v 188.8.131.52
I've Google'd and not finding the right answer other than editing and xml file. I dont want to edit any XML files as I may change the settings randomly.
Path you mentioned is correct. You need to add "your theme name" in both fileds i.e. "skin(images/CSS)" and "Layout". Save Configuration.
Let me know if you face any query/concern regarding the same.
