  • You also have to change it from the style.css file in the template folder.
    Look at the comment on top, that’s where you need to change.

    i changed the name of my folder i.e twentyten to something. Then as u said i did change the name in style.css in theme name(something) but the layout of page is changed(some content of pages like my menu bar in homepage shows pages other than i assigned in menu navigation settings) with the name after i replace.it didnt work actually.Is there anything more need to be replaced for my solution??
    thanks Hieu for ur response, lookin forward to know more about this.

    You may need to go to Back-end / Appearance / Menu and check again.
    Usually you only have to change the name in style.css and that’s it.

    oke.. thank you so much Hieu. I did it checking as u said and with more time i spended.
