Change the unique name of the theme - akhileshbc - 2015-12-01

Hi,

If I want to edit the theme name(which is currently running), shall I just change the name from the Admin Panel? I mean by clicking the "Edit Theme" option.

Will that renames the theme name everywhere? Or do I have to manually change in any files or in db?

Thank you

So will it change the foldername belonging to the theme in the "images" folder?

If I want to change the foldername, which all other places do I have to update?

If you really want to change folder name then you need to change all templates that uses original theme folder for contents like custom css and js. You can change your theme directory through your edit theme properties and changing folder name through filemanager.
