I have a local WordPress install running, and have included
register_theme_directory('/Users/andyw/Desktop/CMS Repos/WP Theme/wp-content/themes'); in my wp-config.php file.
My WordPress install is at
When I go to Appearance > Themes I see the theme in the custom directory, and I can activate it. I can view all its files in Appearance > Editor as well.
My problem is, when I go to the frontend after activating the theme in the custom themes directory there is nothing but a blank white screen. There's no source either when I "view source". I've turned on debugging, and there are no errors or warnings being presented.
Edit: Just wanted to add that if I upload the theme to a live web server or even just put it in the actual wp-content/themes directory it works just fine. So this appears to be something aside from the theme itself.
I'm at somewhat of a loss with this. If WordPress can see the theme in the custom directory, and I can activate it or edit its files, why is it not working on the frontend?
