Publishing themes

You can add up to 20 themes to your online store, but only one theme can be published at a time. A published theme is the theme that customers see when they visit your online store. Your published theme appears in the Current theme section of the Themes page, and your unpublished themes appear in the More themes section.

If you publish a new theme, then your previously published theme moves to the More themes section. None of your theme changes are lost.
