Hi guys!
I'm trying to copy default theme in OC 3.0.2.0 for making my own using a custom tutorial (link not available anymore!).
Unfortunately, in the end, I cant enable new theme in Extensinos->Extensions->Themes.
It's selected to "Enable" inside them editing, but in the list - "Disabled".
Please, told me - how to clone/create themes in OC3.
Thanks.

PS. Sorry, if thread is wrong. First post xD

Hi all,

I'm trying to create a new theme as well following this tutorial here:

https://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/cre ... -cms-21865

The tutorial was written for OC 1.5.x but I did get this working OK on OC 2.2.0.0

I'm trying get this working on OC 3.0.1.2 and I cannot see "mycustomtheme" in the OC admin interface anywhere.

Code: Select all

laptop theme # tree -L 3 mycustomtheme/
mycustomtheme/
├── image
├── stylesheet
└── template
    └── common
        ├── home.twig
        ├── home.twig.orig
        └── tmp-backups
How do I locate mycustomtheme and tell OC 3.0.1.2 to use that instead of the default theme please? ???

TIA

Keith

UPDATE:
To change themes on Opencart 3.0.1.2 you can do the follow:

Login to opencart as admin user.

Go to Extensions -> Extensions

Extension List
Choose the extension type

Click on the drop selection list next to 'Filter' and choose:

Themes(1)

Under Theme Name

- Your Store (Status Enabled) click the blue 'edit' button

Under General:

Theme Directory: select the 'mycustomtheme' from the drop down list.

Status: Enabled

Click on the blue 'save' button at the top RHS of the page.

This should output the message:

"Success: You have modified the default store theme!"

-------------------------------------------------------
When you have done that, if you reload the page on the front end it should now be working with the new theme. ;)

In porting my own theme to OC 3.0.2.0 from OC 2.3.0.2, I found that the settings needed to be prefixed with 'theme_' (so change to 'theme_default_status' to 'theme_mycustomtheme_status' instead of just 'mycustomtheme_status' (as worked with 2.3.0.2 and earlier). There is code in various parts of OpenCart 3.0.x that now looks for those 'theme_' prefixed settings when making decisions about showing the status (enabled/disabled) and probably showing it in the theme editor.

I followed the above steps and created a theme and it is working properly, but when I go to Design > Theme Editor section it shows me the default template codes. Can someone guide me where I am doing wrong, though I am new to Opencart.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
