Work on additional themes as a Ghost(Pro) member

Hello everyone,

I’m a bit new to Ghost and working with the Terminal, so my apologies if anything I ask is already covered in Ghost’s support docs.

I have a Ghost(Pro) site but would like to alter the appearance of the Lyra theme and install my own version of it. Ideally, I’d like to work on a development version locally and then install what I come up with on my Ghost(Pro) account.

I’ve followed all the Ghost recommended instructions to install a local version of Ghost. In fact, I’m able to modify a local version of Casper and see my changes reflected at “localhost:2368.” However, I whenever I add or create additional themes in my “content/themes” folder, I’m unable to view those new themes.

For example, how can I see this “Liebling” theme and any alterations I make to it displayed at “localhost:2368”? Or elsewhere?

My hope was to be able to work on a non-Casper theme and get a live preview of that theme. Instead, all I’m ever seeing is the Casper theme. I feel like I’m missing something obvious here, but I just can’t find an answer to my issue.

Thank you in advance for your time and help.

I would suggest doing ghost restart from the terminal.
