I have done all of the following
NOW! How Do I POINT to the Theme I want to use for a page
If using WordPress as a CMS, you might want to present readers with a static front page, and then display your posts on another page called Blog. To accomplish that follow these instructions:
■Create a Page and use “My Front Page” for the Page Title. Of course, in the content for that Page, you can enter the information you want presented on your site’s front page (see example below if you want to display a post).
■Create a Page and call it Blog. Nothing needs to be entered in the content field of this Page.
■In Administration > Settings > Reading set the Front page displays to A static page, and select My Front Page for Front page:, and select Blog for the Posts page:.
If you want to further customize your front page, you can create a Template, and fit it to meet your needs:
■With the help of the Template Hierarchy article, determine what Template is normally used to display your Pages (e.g. page.php or index.php).
■Copy that template to myfront.php. If you were using the WordPress Default theme you would copy wp-content/themes/default/page.php to wp-content/themes/default/myfront.php.
■In Administration > Appearance > Editor, edit the myfront.php and change the beginning of the file from:
* @package WordPress
* @subpackage Default_Theme
Template Name: MyFront
I am missing something here and I would appreciate any help
