OpenCart Theme Installation
Themes allow us to differentiate our store design.
Some Themes can also add new functionalities. Be sure that you backup your files before applying any templates and choose the right version.
OpenCart has a very active developer and contributor community, which regularly releases new Themes. There are both free and paid Themes which we can use for our shop design. Here are some of the sources to find OpenCart Themes according to the OpenCart version number which we use.
We will learn how to upload an OpenCart Theme and activate it.
Note that it shows the very basic Theme installation. Some complicated Themes need to make changes on main store codes as well. These changes are generally explained step by step in a readme file in the Theme package.
1. The following screenshot shows that we have uploaded a Theme zip file to the catalog/view/theme folder in our store. We should Extract it to this folder.
2. Let's just click on the Extract File(s) button.
3. When we open Store Manager settings, we will now see that a new Theme is listed. Let's choose it and Save the setting.
4. The following screenshot shows the main page after a new Theme was applied. Notice that there are only a few cosmetic changes to the design of the store.
We have just finished uploading and activating Theme.
We should not forget to backup our files beforehand if any code changes are required for Themes in store codes
