Theme not working: what setting controls frontend/base/

Theme not working: what setting controls frontend/base/

I have an existing Magento store.  I duplicated the stores database and uploaded a new copy of Magento.  I then installed the Venedor theme but the site will not show the new theme.

 

I tested with a clean magento install with a blank database and the theme worked correctly.  Since it's a brand new magento install something in the database is making the theme not work.  I compared the admin settings for the working store with blank database to the non working store for hours and can't find the diffrence causing the problem.

 

I turned on Magento's template path which hints show:

frontend/base/default/template/page/3columns.phtml

frontend/base/default/template/page/html/head.phtml
etc.

 

they should should be:

frontend/venedor/default/template/page/2columns-right.phtml

frontend/venedor/default/template/page/html/head.phtml
etc.
 

What would I change to make Magento use frontend/venedor/ instead of frontend/base/?

 

Thank you for any help!

in the backend, if you go to config > design, does it show the correct theme in the package/theme sections?
